Jaylen Brown's viral Instagram post after Boston Celtics' NBA championship victory

On Monday night, the Boston Celtics became NBA champions when they defeated the Dallas Mavericks 106-88 in Game 5 of the Finals.

Jaylen Brown finished the game with 21 points, eight rebounds, six assists and two steals while shooting 7/23 from the field and 2/9 from three-point range in 44 minutes of play.

The former Cal star was named MVP of the 2024 NBA Finals.

After the game, Brown made a post on Instagram, which had over 200,000 likes and 6,000 comments in less than two hours.

Brown captioned his post: “I’m just here for the vibe”

Brown has been in the NBA for eight seasons and has already made it to the Hall of Fame.

The 27-year-old was selected third in the 2016 NBA Draft and has reached the finals twice (and the Eastern Conference finals six times).

A three-time NBA All-Star, Brown finished the 2023–24 regular season averaging 23.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game while shooting 49.9% from the field and 35.4% from three-point range in 70 games.

It was a remarkable year for the Celtics, who also finished number one in the Eastern Conference with a record of 64-18.
