Jaylen Brown has at least one fan in a high place.

The Boston Celtics guard earned the enduring respect of Gucci Mane during the 2018 NBA playoffs, as their recent Twitter exchange proves. The rapper shouted out Brown on Monday afternoon, a day after the Celtics’ loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 7 of the Eastern conference finals.

Brown showed his appreciation early Tuesday morning with this succinct response.

Gucci Mane announced himself as a Brown fan earlier this month when he attended Game 2 of Boston’s Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Philadelphia 76ers rocking the Celtics forward’s No. 7 jersey.

No one should be surprised if their budding friendship lasts into next season and beyond.
