When the annual arrival of the NBA’s summer doldrums finally drops, NBA analysts tend to turn to the tried and true source of content for when the annual news cycle slows to a crawl — making lists of things. And here at the Celtics Wire, we appreciate a little creativity with the philosophy behind a list, even if it is an exceptionally simple (and slightly silly) one.

So it caught our attention that ESPN host Jalen Rose put together one such list of his favorite plays from the 2021-22 season, with one catch: the list is restricted to players who also happen to be named a variation of “Jalen”.

Boston Celtics star forward Jaylen Brown of course makes an appearance; watch the clip embedded below to see where Brown stacks up against the likes of Jalen Suggs and Jalen Brunson — at least in Rose’s opinion.
