BOSTON — Jaylen Brown had quite the game Monday night.
The Celtics swingman posted 20 points in Boston’s 32-point victory over the star-studded Los Angeles Lakers, but that wasn’t the biggest highlight of his night. Not even close.
Brown absolutely posterized James midway through the third quarter, extending Boston’s lead to 18 and making James look silly all at once.

This isn’t the first time James has been dunked on by a Celtic (ahem, Jayson Tatum), and it might not be his last. Despite being one of the greatest of all time, James isn’t ashamed of being posterized.
“Why would I take it personally?” James said, via CLNS Media’s Mike Petraglia. “You don’t take it personally. It’s part of basketball. You get blocks, you get dunks, you get crossed over at times … that’s all part of basketball.”
Tatum still believes his dunk on James was better than Brown’s Monday night slam, but we’ll let you decide that one.
