The Boston Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown does not lack confidence.
Brown appeared on CJ McCollum's Pull Up podcast Wednesday (h / t ESPN.com's Chris Forsberg) and did not ask if the Celtics would represent the Eastern Conference in the 2019 NBA Finals.
"Oh, we're coming to the finale, "he said.
Brown also said that he thinks the Celtics would represent the East, sel Especially if LeBron James did not jump for the Los Angeles Lakers.
"I hate how everyone is" Oh, LeBron has disappeared to the east, "said Brown," I know he had a strong grip on the East for the past seven years, but he brought us this Barely out of the year. And our mindset was like, "Man, he's not beating us again."  The Celtics lost the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals for the second straight year, but this time they beat them the Golden State Warriors before taking a 3-2 lead
However, this slip-up was sidelined with both Kyrie Irving (knee) and Gordon Hayward (ankle).  Now that these two are on the mend and James is in the Western Conference, it should come as no surprise that the Celtics 110 favorites ($ 110 to win $ 100) are favorites to win the East, after OddsShark.
The only other teams likely to have a good chance of winning the East are the Philadelphia 76ers (+300) and the Toronto Raptors (+325).
The Celtics open their season against the Sixers at TD Garden on October 16th.
