Boston Celtics All-Star forward Jaylen Brown has forged a reputation in the NBA as a man of many interests, passions, and causes. Brown has a competitive fire rarely matched by others on the court and in his desire to lead the fight in causes he believes in.

Such leadership put him squarely in the forefront of debates about racial equity within and beyond the NBA, ranging from who gets a seat at the table when it comes to NBA coaching and front office positions to how we can change the way policing and education are conducted to improve opportunities for all of us.

That debate of course touched home for the Celtics in the shape of their new hire for head coach in Ime Udoka, a renowned leader in his own right in his stops as an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers, and Brooklyn Nets.
