The Celtics’ Jaylen Brown got in on the newest viral craze known as the #DriveByDunkChallenge on Saturday. His video is a nice contrast to the goofy one shared by 58-year-old Kentucky coach John Calipari.
Brown threw a dunk down on what, at first glance, appears to be a random person playing basketball on a hoop in a residential area — and the Celtics forward stole their ball for the slam.
But — and I don’t mean to ruin the fun or anything — I feel like this was definitely all planned out ahead of time, mainly because why would you step in front of an athletic 6-foot-7 man approaching your basketball hoop? It seems suspicious to me.
If it is real, someone needs to teach that guy how to run out of the way.
Friends don’t let friends get dunked on.
