The Boston Celtics are only a few days away from their season opener against the Philadelphia 76ers. As we count the days toward tip-off, it’s only natural for both fans and the media to wonder how the team feels going up against former teammate Al Horford.
According to Jay King of The Athletic, Jaylen expounded on the topic by stating he wasn’t surprised by Horford’s decision and that he wishes him well. Brown later clarified his statement by saying that “nothing in the NBA surprises him anymore”.

Horford sought greener pastures once he caught wind that a second-team was willing to offer him an extra year and incentives that the Celtics wouldn’t. Unfortunately that second team ended up being a conference rival in the 76ers.
