Gentle, fun prods at a teammate are a sign of a pleasant coexistence. The Jay Team, and others, are at it.
Within any group, making fun of your team members is the ultimate barometer of a pleasant coexistence. We saw this in a post-game press conference where Jaylen Brown made his “I’m sick of you” whisper to Kyrie Irving. It was hilarious.

Things may have gone downhill after that, but that roasting-humor is back, this time with Jaylen Brown roasting teammate, and fellow Jay Team member, Jayson Tatum, for peddling Abercrombie fragrance – shirtless.

Jaylen was not the only culprit in Jayson’s roast. Ex-Celtics Shane Larkin and current-teammate, Tremont Waters joined in (per NBC Sports’ Darren Hartwell):
“Awww nahhh bro 🤦🏾♂️,” Brown wrote in the comment section, before adding another jab for good measure:
“They got you out here wit the bird chest 😂”
Celtics rookie Tremont Waters piled on, responding with no fewer than eight “crying laughing” emojis.
The heat on Tatum didn’t stop in Boston, though. Ex-teammate Shane Larkin also chimed in:
“My boy fierce out here … 😐…”
Great to see this type of humor has re-emerged in Boston. It is a nice sign for the coming season.
