Controversies

In 2021, Brown created numerous YouTube videos critiquing the assertion that he was a ‘bust” as a first round draft pick, claiming that mainstream U.S. sports media unfairly targeted him for over twenty years, as well as negatively depicts Black men, in general.

The videos were created in response to negative comments about Brown’s career from former NBA players Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson on a May episode of their podcast All the Smoke.

Brown’s response has led to a significant increase of social media attention, especially via YouTube and Instagram. Therefore, some journalists are now re-examining whether the “bust” label is legitimate.
