Jaylen Brown is guaranteeing the Boston Celtics will reach The Finals this year.

The Celtics were one win away from The Finals last year before losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 7.

"Oh, we're getting to the Finals. No question about it," Brown said on CJ McCollum's "Pull Up" podcast.

Brown rejected the suggestion that the Celtics will advance because of LeBron James' departure from the conference.

"I hate how everybody is like, 'Oh, LeBron's gone in the East,'" Brown said. "I know he did have a strong hold on the East for the last seven years, but he barely got us out of there this year. And our mindset was like, 'Man, he's not beating us again.'"
