Jaylen Brown boasts NBA Finals MVP trophy in roulette table

Jaylen Brown has been enjoying the life of a champion and the Finals MVP, showing off his trophy in the Boston Harbor Casino.

The photos surfaced days after the Boston Celtics finished off the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, 106-88, to win the franchise’s record-breaking 18th title.

The Celtics first flew to Miami for a celebration before heading back to Boston on Friday for the traditional championship parade in the city.

In the finals, Brown averaged 20.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game while also being the primary defender for Dallas Mavericks’ star Luka Doncic en route to winning the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP award.

Brown edged out teammate Jayson Tatum for the award despite the latter averaging more points (22.2), more rebounds (7.8) and more assists (7.2) than Brown.

Brown got the upper hand in seven of the 11 ballots for the Finals MVP nod after winning the Eastern Conference MVP last month.
