What is The Moment? It can be defined as a lot of different things, depending on who you talk to. NBA rising star Jaylen Brown compares it to the game of chess, which his grandfather taught him to play when he was four years old.

“[Chess] is such a symbolism for life to me,” the Celtics forward says in a video he shot with College Park rapper Gunna for Champs Sports (above). “Because life is all about the decisions and the moves that you make. The moments.”

One of the first major decisions Brown faced came as a teenager. At 16, he had the opportunity to leave his native Marietta, Georgia to spend time in Treviso, Italy. The trip wound up representing a liminal moment in his young life, as it granted him a completely new perspective on the world, from the foreign foods he tasted to the culture he experienced.
