Well this was prophetic! Well done Ruey. Jaylen swung Game 1 when it mattered the most.

Go Bears!

Also worth noting that Jaylen Brown was re-elected Vice President of the Players' Association earlier this year. He's really been everything we could want as a Cal alumnus.

Jaylen Brown is such a Bear. He embraces the academics and social activism of Berkeley, and I don't doubt will return again and again for studies and connection to the area. Wishing him all the best.

Nice breakdown! This is definitely a big Finals storyline.

As a Laker fan I don't want the Celtics to get another championship but I am a big fan of Jaylen. I do hope he breaks through into superstardom. He's so intelligent that it seems like he's capable of seeing the game (and assessing his game) on another level.

He drove all the time as a Bear, it was infuriating because he didn't have any finesse and was seemingly getting like 4 charging calls per game. Had he developed more of a shooting game at Cal, he would have been near unstoppable.

Yeah the out of control play exemplified by the surprising Hawaii loss in the tourney is behind him. That was tough, also, because Ty Wallace and Jabari were both out. With those two guys healthy we might have been able to reach the sweet 16.
