For any Celtics fans not initially enamored by the team’s selection of Jaylen Brown with the No. 3 selection in the 2016 NBA Draft, allow Bill Walton to vouch for him:

Jaylen Brown leads the way for the Bears. This guy is a comet who is scorching across the universe and the heavens right now. This guy has got it all. He has been unstoppable.

That quote can be heard in the above video of Brown’s highlights from his standout freshman season at the University of California.
