Tragedy: the greatest of all celtics players has just announced hes resignation after this happened…..

After Friday night’s Celtics’ win over the Pistons, Jaylen Brown told NBC Sport Boston’s Abby Chin he has been observing Ramadan.

That means that since March 10th, Brown has fasted each day dawn to dusk, and will continue to do so until Ramadan ends on April 9th. Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community.

“It’s an amazing time of the year. It’s a bunch of people all over the world who participate, and I’m just one of those people who just kind of falls in line,” Brown said. “It’s an amazing month to celebrate. It’s about your strength, your focus.”

Jaylen Brown also noted that his participation in Ramadan is rooted in community.

“Receiving those clarities is something that I’ve enjoyed participating in over the years, but it’s something I don’t necessarily make about myself either,” he said. “Everybody’s doing this together, so I’m appreciative of that.”

Since Ramadan began on March 10th, Jaylen Brown has averaged 29.8 points and 6 rebounds per game. In that span, he’s shot 53.8% and 40% from three, while helping to lead the Celtics to five wins.

Several prominent NBA players have observed Ramadan and continued to perform at a high level, with Hakeem Olajuwon and Kyrie Irving both serving as notable examples.

After his 33-point performance against the Pistons, Brown said he doesn’t find being it challenging to be a professional athlete observing Ramadan.

This isn’t the first year Brown has observed. In 2022, he said “it’s something that’s saved my life in a lot of ways.” Last year, he spoke about how it helped him be in better spirits.
