Jaylen Brown Was Mad That LeBron Decided To Sign With The Lakers

Apart from perhaps a few Cleveland Cavalier and Kobe Bryant fans, LeBron James' decision to sign with the Lakers this summer was extremely well-received, especially compared to LeBron's first decision to sign with the Miami Heat back in 2010.

Not much fuss was thrown up when it was officially announced LBJ would be a Laker, as a lot of NBA fans hatred has been focused on the Golden State Warriors as of late, only multiplying when they managed to sign DeMarcus Cousins a week ago.

A lot of Eastern Conference teams are especially happy LeBron decided to head out West finally, as the top teams now have a chance to compete for a title after eight-straight years of James' dominance over the East.

One player who isn't happy though is the Boston Celtics' Jaylen Brown, who was angry LeBron decided to leave the Cavs, as it doesn't allow the Celtics to get some revenge for their past two playoff exits at the hands of the Cavs.

It may seem a bit silly, given the fact that the Celtics are now the favorites in the East to head to the Finals for the first time since 2010, but this statement just proves how much of a competitor Brown is. Sure, he could be happy that a major roadblock to a Boston championship is now out of the East, but he's the complete opposite, wanting to go through all-comers rather than waiting for them to get out of the way.

Extremely admirable.
