If the Boston Celtics have a wonderful upcoming year, it’ll partly be because Jaylen Brown has a strong season.
Over the last few years, he has become a very crucial part of the team’s success.
And he is getting ready for 2023-24.
The Celtics tweeted images of Brown in the gym, looking focused and calm.
The tweet’s caption read, “preparation & patience.”

The Celtics will need to be prepared.
And fans of the team might need some patience – but for how much longer?
The Celtics have been one of the best teams in the NBA for the last few years.
After reaching the NBA Finals two seasons ago, they went as far as the Eastern Conference Finals last season.
As impressive as that is, they have yet to seal the deal and take home their 18th championship.
Will this upcoming season be the one when everything falls into place?
Brown put up 26.6 points and 6.9 rebounds a game last season, shooting a strong 49.1% from the field.
In the summer, he received a huge payday when the Celtics gave him the biggest contract extension in NBA history.
He is clearly a valued part of the team.
Alongside Jayson Tatum, Brown is the center of the squad and pivotal in nearly every possession.
The Celtics have beefed up their roster during the summer, with the addition of Kristaps Porzingis strengthening the frontcourt.
Fans are hoping that he is the final piece needed for another Finals victory.
But there is no doubt that Brown also has to perform well for them to go all the way.NEXT: Grant Williams Hilariously Discusses His 'Beef' With Jayson Tatum's Son
