As Jaylen Brown officially opened his “7uice” store in Boston’s Seaport District on Friday, many of his Celtics teammates were there to show their support.

Jayson Tatum (plus Deuce), Marcus Smart, Grant Williams, Dennis Schröder, Jabari Parker, Aaron Nesmith, Juwan Morgan, Theo Pinson, and Sam Hauser were among the players present, according to Forbes reporter Chris Grenham.

“It was surreal,” Brown said Saturday. “My guys showed up. We had a great opening … Just to have the support of your teammates and extended family, I appreciate it and love you all.”

Brown said he’s looking for something more than profit in opening his store. He plans to do giveaways to places in need and said those who do pay for items will be helping others through the purchases they make.
