Jaylen Brown on popular and prophetic tweet

On the morning of the Boston Celtics’ upcoming game against the Miami Heat on Jan. 31, Jaylen Brown tweeted quite a interesting cryptic message before the game.

No one knew exactly what Brown was getting at when he tweeted this, but many believed the energy he believed would change related to the Celtics themselves. Before that game, which they won 122-92, the Celtics were 26-25 in the season. The prevailing theory was that Brown had announced that the Celtics would change their fortunes for the better.

After Brown tweeted this, Boston was on a nine-game winning streak, winning 25 of their last 31 games. Many believed it was Brown’s tweet that sparked Boston’s sudden turnaround. The phrase is so common that Brown currently sells shirts with those exact words in his own store.

In a recent interview with ESPN’s Malika Andrews, Brown reflected on why he sent that tweet in the first place. Brown even used an astronomical term when explaining the tweet.

“Have you ever been through a time when things just don’t seem right?” Braun asked. “I felt that way about everyone. Things were about to change. There are certain seasons. It was actually retrograde, meaning the planets are rotating in the opposite direction… I knew at that moment the energy was going to change so I tweeted it and we had a winning streak.”

Whenever a team changes fortunes, like the Celtics did this season, many try to figure out what factors led to how it all went, such as: B. Attracting better players or an easier schedule. Brown believes simply bringing back guys from injuries — including him — helped the team figure out what they were as a team.

“I think we got healthy,” Brown said. “I think that was the key. We had some injuries. I missed about 15 games earlier this year and that affected us, but… with new teammates, a new front office and (and) a new coaching staff, we just had to get going. Once we do that, we see the results, so I give credit to that.”

The Celtics were hit by both injuries and COVID-19 earlier in the year, but once they weathered it all, they played more like a playoff team. The acquisition of Derrick White and the re-acquisition of Daniel Theis at the close helped, but the availability of the entire team for the stretch run certainly helped them during the stretch run.

Struggling to stay above .500 while busting out in the first round last season wouldn’t be fun for anyone. Even if it’s yesterday’s news, the Celtics’ troubles earlier in the season left many wondering if they’d ever put it together. Brown was not one of the skeptics.

Brown’s prophetic tweet meant that even when times were tough, he still believed in what the Celtics were capable of. That’s what he said when asked how much harder times were for Boston before the reunification.

“I’ve never lost faith, I have to say,” Brown said. “Amidst … all the uproar, all the criticism, you can go back and (print) the receipts, I’ve always said things are going to change. Things will pick up. The energy of our feelings for each other and for the group was always high. It was always consistent. It was always positive. So I knew it was only a matter of time. We weren’t blown out. We narrowly lost games, so we just had to figure out how to win games and how to stay healthy…Once we did that, we knew we were going to run a bit.
