DATELINE: No Attitude Glasses for Jaylen
Marcus Smart in Attitude Glasses
Boys who wear glasses seldom make passes in the NBA.
We’re not sure if we should tip our cap to Dorothy Parker or Ogden Nash.
The Green Lantern of the Boston Celtics, also known as Jaylen Brown, was unable to play basketball last night because he didn’t clean his contact lens properly. He can’t wear goggles like Kyrie.
It can happen to anyone, but sometimes your lens cleaning falls awry and the lens can result in redness and other problems. You will have to take out the lens and not wear it until the eye clears up.
The young Celtic superstar in the making has found that he must revert to his Clark Kent eyeglasses for the foreseeable future.
Jaylen Brown couldn’t play wearing glasses, knowing the last person to do that with some Los Angeles Laker 30 years ago.
So, Jaylen had to stay in the locker room and tend to his red eye. As the resident intellectual of the team, we think he would look good in glasses on the court. Court
Jaylen, of course, reads voraciously, plays chess dress like a Grand Master, and plays a fortissimo piano.
We suspect that he uses eyeglasses when accomplishing great achievement in those fields. However, being a rock star celebrity of basketball is not in the field of vision.
Eyeglasses being anathema, Jaylen was unable to allow photographs of him with four eyes. We hope his eye clears up soon and he will be back out on the court with his fellow Hardy boy and basketball brother, Jayson Tatum.
Marcus Smart has worn fake eyeglasses to look smart, but Jaylen really is smart.
