The Boston Celtics upset much of their fan base when they were unable to swing a trade for an established veteran and instead selected Jaylen Brown with the No. 3 overall pick in Thursdays NBA draft.That emotion even carried over to some of its younger fans. At a basketball camp that the team hosted at a local community center on Wednesday, a young boy had a chance to play one-on-one against Brown.He challenged me, and I just blacked out, Brown told MassLive.com. He said, You aint good. He said, Ben Simmons is better. So I said, All right, OK.Then this happened:Browns lack of mercy on the court, no matter how young the person defending him is, could make Celtics fans happy the team did not trade the No. 3 pick after all. Bruce Ellington Jersey . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. Chris Clark Jersey . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. http://www.officialauthentictexansstore.com/authentic-corey-moore-jersey.html . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. Jose Altuve Jersey . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. Andre Hal Jersey . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. WASHINGTON -- Patrik Laine isnt afraid to be himself, whether hes talking or playing hockey.The No. 2 pick in the NHL draft thought he deserved to be No. 1 and said so. His on-ice persona is just as confident, and itll be put to the test playing for Finland at the World Cup of Hockey.Laine is the youngest player in the tournament, and the Winnipeg Jets prospect is eager to show he belongs with the best.Im going to have to prove that to everybody, and Im going to show that when the tournament starts, Laine said.Laines offensive arsenal has more moves than his surname, which is pronounced Line-EH. He can shake defenders out of their skates but is best known for a wicked shot, which he used to beat Jonathan Quick in Finlands exhibition game against the United States on Tuesday.On a team that lacks the talent on paper of Canada, the U.S., Sweden and Russia, Laine has the ability to singlehandedly take a game over, despite being just under 18 years, 5 months old.When we named Patrik (to) this team, we know that he (had) good offensive-game skills and that shot was unbelievable, coach Lauri Marjamaki said. Of course hes a young guy, but he has something we need and were trying to find some new elements about our offensive game.Picking Laine was a risk, though he earned it by scoring seven goals and adding five assists in 10 games at the world hockey championship in the spring. It was no surprise that he lit up the world juniors over the winter, but he had grown-up production playing with and against grown men.Laines influence has continued leading up to the World Cup, as he struggled in the first two exhibition games before finding a groove.Hes just 18 years old, and I think he plays like a major player, linemate Aleksander Barkov said.Laine is a major player for Finland and could start the tournament alongside Barkov and either Teuvo Teravainen or 19-year-old Sebastian Aho. Hell have chances to back up his braggadocio from before the draft, when he said the Toronto Maple Leafs should have selected him first overall instead of Auston Matthews. Hes not shying away from that, even while older teammates tell hhim players werent like that back in their day.ddddddddddddI know thats how good I am, and I can say that, Laine said. Its not a problem for me. And if thats a problem to somebody else, its not my problem. I dont care what people think. I know that Im a good player and Im going to stick with that.Laines talent isnt debatable, but there are questions about adjusting to smaller NHL rinks and, in this tournament, fitting into Finlands team-first, stringent structure. The Finns hallmark is to play stronger as a group than as individual players, so its on Laine to fit into that concept without losing his creativity.He plays structure as good as anyone, captain Mikko Koivu said. But for sure when you get a skillset like that that can make a difference in a hockey game, I think youve just got to be careful when you use it and where.While plenty cocky about his game, Laine still has his teenage moments. His mother is moving to Winnipeg with him to help him adjust to North America, and after practice this week he stared in awe at some teammates lockers -- after watching them in the NHL, hes now playing with them.Laine gets the benefit of plenty of veterans on and around Finland, most notably Teemu Selanne, who set the rookie goal-scoring record with 76 back in 1992-93 playing in, of course, Winnipeg. Selanne plans to talk with Laine about the NHL, Winnipeg and more during the World Cup.Everybody in their lives cant speak with those kind of players, Laine said. Its so good to have that kind of opportunity to talk with him and discuss about games and everything.For all his boasting, Laine concedes he has plenty of learning to do. He expects to get better game by game, which is a scary proposition for the rest of the teams in the World Cup and the NHL.People sometimes forget the guys 18 years old playing here, forward Lauri Korpikoski said. Ive been really impressed by him. Hes got a really bright future ahead of him.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno .
