It has been a mixed year for Jaylen Brown so far. On one hand, the league selected him for All-NBA honors at the end of last season, which made him eligible for the supermax contract. The Boston Celtics will pay him $305 million over five years, the most ever in NBA history. But on the other hand, the Celtics lost to the Miami Heat in the playoffs, again falling short of the NBA title.

Brown has been working on his fitness in Bahrain before he returns to Boston for NBA Media Day on October 2nd. He would be looking to hit the ground running after securing the most lucrative contract in NBA history ($305 million). The Celtics would like an instant return on their substantial investment because they are the frontrunners for the NBA title. The Celtics are always expected to compete for the title, but in the last ten years, they have constantly disappointed in the playoffs and have fallen short of the NBA title.

The duo of Tatum and Brown needs to take responsibility and win their elusive 18th NBA title this season. Anything less would be considered disappointing. Brown has been working hard on his fitness and game almost 6,500 miles away from home. A video of Brown was posted on LethalShooter’s Instagram handle.

The Boston Celtics made huge moves in the offseason. They traded away their team’s emotional leader Marcus Smart to the Memphis Grizzlies and got Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis in return.
