Throwback Thursday: Boston Celtics Welcome Jaylen Brown with Popcorn Prank in Car
Everyone is excited in the fierce battles on the NBA’s Eastern Conference finals with Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are yet to score a series with against the most successful franchise, the Boston Celtics.
The Cavaliers, despite King James’ contribution (22nd recorded triple-double in NBA playoff history), are taking a beating from the Celtics led by young gun Jaylen Brown with superstars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward sitting on the bench.
But let’s take breather from the conference and have something light instead: like popcorn. Who doesn’t like popcorn by the way?
On March 16, 2017, then-rookie Jaylen Brown received a prank from his teammates after their victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves by loading the neophyte’s car, a Mazda CX-9, with popcorn.
According to a story on BleacherReport.com, Brown just shrugged off the tasty ordeal and said that he was going to watch a movie that night anyway.
For the Win’s Alysha Tsuji got the video of the incident.

Finally got the 🍿out! 😏Shout out to Shaker Auto Group for my #MazdaCX9.
But the popcorn-filled prank is not an isolated case to Brown.
Rudy Gobert also was victimized by his teammates back in 2014 and Dion Waiters in 2013.
Headed to the car wash
