A tweet Jaylen Brown sent 5 years ago continues to go viral after Jaylen’s success with the Celtics.  On April 28, 2014 Jaylen tweeted “My teacher said she will look me up in the Cobb county jail in 5 years .. Wow.”

When asked about the resurfaced tweet on Monday, Jaylen responded “I don’t really want to get into what happened because I want to leave it in the past where it belongs,” he said. “I let it be the past.”

He did say however that he had no negative feelings toward that teacher saying “In Georgia, the education system isn’t the best, so I don’t really put too much blame on the teacher.  “It is what it is. When you have one teacher handling 35 kids in one class, it’s tough. A lot of teachers go through stuff and take a lot of crap out there all day, so who knows what was going through her mind that day when she said that.”
