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.”
