Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown was disappointed to see LeBron James‘ decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers

Speaking to reporters, Brown explained that he hoped the Celtics would end James’ reign in the Eastern Conference, rather than see the four-time MVP leave and make the conference less competitive, per MassLive.com’s Tom Westerholm:

“To be honest, I wanted him to stay. I was kind of mad, I wanted to be the team to go through him. I feel like we could have had it last year, but we fell a little bit short. But I applaud someone doing what’s best for him. He did what’s best for him in that situation. I wanted him to stay in the East. People say, I don’t like when people say ‘Now that LeBron’s gone, y’all are the favorite.’ That irks me. A lot of us, we feel the same, because we feel that whether he was there or wasn’t there, we was coming out.”
