Jaylen Brown Says Losing Has Created Toxic Environment for Celtics

Jaylen Brown wants to change the Celtics "toxic" environment but doesn't know how.


Well, somebody had to say it.

The Boston Celtics environment has has become “toxic.”

Or at least so says Jaylen Brown.

Speaking to the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn Brown admitted that losing has really taking it’s toll on the Celtics locker room.

“To be honest, I’m not feeling good at all,” Brown told Washburn. “The losing, it’s not a good feeling. I’m not too good about that.

“Because right now it’s not good. It’s toxic. I can’t really point out one thing. I don’t have all the answers. I’m just going to try to be part of the change. I’m going to try to do my best. That’s all I’ve got to say.”

Brown could not identify any one particular reason the Celtics have struggled to come together, but he says it’s painfully obvious, that hasn’t happened so far this season.


“I just try to come out and play hard and hopefully that sparks some [change]. But it’s not just up to one person. It’s up to the whole group.

“Everybody has to be on page,” he said. “If one person’s not on page, it’s going to affect the whole group. I just try to come out and play hard and see where that leaves me.”

Can the Celtics turn it around. Head coach Brad Stevens believes so, and told Kyrie Irving that much after Sunday’s loss to Houston.

Brown too says he’s trying to remain positive.

“I still believe,” he said. “I think we’ve got time to get it together. I’m very optimistic and very positive and think that we will . . . We keep talking about it. I’m just going to try to do it with my play, come out and play hard and try to change the atmosphere and this environment.”
