Jaylen Brown has the last laugh with teacher who thought he'd end up in jail


Nobody gets along with all of their teachers in school, and Jaylen Brown is no exception. 

After helping his Celtics team dominate the East-leading Bucks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, Brown recalled a tweet he made five years ago with Sean Grande. 

Brown was a top-five high school basketball recruit in the country and was three days away from his official signing with the University of California, but something about that day rubbed his teacher the wrong way. 

Brown could not be farther away from his teacher's prediction. In February he was elected as a Vice President to the NBA Players Association, and last year he hosted a technology and networking lunch during last year's All-Star weekend. 

The question surrounding Brown isn't how far he will fall like his teacher predicted, but instead how far he will go.
