Celtics owner responds to the angry fans doubting Boston's draft

Thanks to the lottery, the Boston Celtics just barely missed out on the unanimous top two players in the draft -- Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram. Landing one of the two would have been huge for the franchise, but they were forced to settle for the third pick. With it, Boston selected Cal forward Jaylen Brown.

The Celtics were excited to land the wing scorer, but fans didn't share the same feelings. Here's how a TD Garden full of fans reacted.

Co-owner Wyc Grousbeck saw the underwhelming excitement from Celtics fans and wasn't impressed.

"Well yeah, you know 14 years, that's probably the worst one I've gotten," he said of the reception, via

Grousbeck did assure fans that the front office knows what its doing despite fans having the freedom to react however they choose.

"Look, we're a bunch of fans who bought this team," he said. "And being a fan means you're emotional. You're emotionally invested in the team, and no problem. But I actually believe if those fans knew what I knew and were in that room, I think most of them might've done the same thing. But no problem, bring it on. They're Celtics fans and they've earned the right to say whatever they want."

The pick likely came down to Brown and point guard Kris Dunn, who went at No. 5 to the Timberwolves. Brown fills a bigger need for the Celtics, given the depth they have at the point.
