Jaylen Brown on why he wanted his Bridge program students at his supermax extension signing

When star Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown signed his historic, $304 million supermax contract extension last week, Celtics President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens, lead team governor Wyc Grousbeck and co-owner Steve Pagliuca were present along with friends and family.

But one special group of guests caught the attention of all who were there: the camp participants of Brown’s Bridge program for local Black and brown students at MIT. The Celtics star made a point of having them included in his inking of the NBA-record contract extension, and he recently put together a short with the team to explain why that was.

Check out the clip embedded below to hear from Brown himself why it was so key to him to have these youth at the big event.
