Star Boston Celtics shooting guard Jaylen Brown is officially an All-Star Reserve for the 2023 NBA All-Star Game, and thus headed to Salt Lake City, Utah for the week of festivities including the titular exhibition game, the Georgia native's second such tilt of his career.
Borderline All-NBA level play has propelled the Cal-Berkeley product to the honor, with Brown at times looking like the best player on the court for the Celtics this season despite having a teammate in star swingman Jayson Tatum being a Most Valuable Player candidate this season, the duo thriving together and pushing one another to new heights.
To celebrate the plays that got Marietta's favorite son considered for such an honor, the folks behind the NBA's official Youtube channel put together a clip of the best plays from Brown's 2022-23 season so far for us to enjoy on our own time.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
