The Boston Celtics have been in cruise control for most of the first half of the 2022-23 NBA season. They have been in first place in the Eastern Conference for most of the season, and their latest win over the Brooklyn Nets further cemented them as the best team in the league. Their record is now 31-12, making them the best team in the NBA and giving them a three-game lead over the Nets for the top seed in the East.
Barkley did not support Brown’s recent fashion choices
It wasn’t easy sledding for the C’s all season as they dealt with a sudden coaching opportunity when Ime Udoka was suspended by the team for the entire season and was forced to be without star center Robert Williams III for the first two months. season after undergoing late offseason surgery on his bothersome knee. But that hasn’t stopped Boston from dominating nearly every team they’ve faced so far this season.
The Celtics may have hit another bump in the road, with Jaylen Brown forced to miss Boston’s win over Brooklyn with an adductor strain. Brown’s absence shouldn’t be lengthy, but Boston will miss him while he’s on the sidelines.

Barkley may try to get Brown a new stylist
Not much went wrong for the Celtics when they took the court after an interesting offseason. But according to Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal, who agreed with Barkley’s admission, Brown’s jersey choice for this game, in which he did not play, was a glaring mistake. It was definitely an exciting wardrobe choice by Brown, but it’s not the most ridiculous thing we’ve seen an NBA player wear this season.
NBA players always like to make a fashion statement, whether they’re on the sidelines watching games on the court or when they enter the stadium. But according to Barkley, Brown’s choice of sweater was a glaring mistake. Assuming Brown can get back on the court sooner rather than later, it might not be a big deal moving forward, but if he continues to miss time, he might want to think twice about what to wear because he could end up again roasted Barkley and company.
