Real Quick: Could Jayson Tatum Carry the Boston Celtics?

By: Opinionated MJ (Michael Tolliver)

I’m asking this question about the playoffs but it could very well be what will happen in the near future. Might happen next season. Right now, game 1 is happening as I write. I’ve been watching Tatum all season. I’ve been watching this Celtics team actually remain successful without Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart. Why shouldn’t I believe that this team could beat the Milwaukee Bucks and make some noise against what I believe would be a match-up against the Sixers? I look at their roster. They successfully maintained the second seed without “arguably” their best scorer. That tells me alot.

No disrespect to Kyrie, but I say arguably because I’m thinking, “what if”. What if this offense was redesigned around Tatum? What if everything else reflected that, including the roster depth? What if it already does now? At least for now. What will Jayson Tatum look like next year after having a full year and a summer under his belt?

Tatum came to this team and impacted it from day 1. He’s already one of the best shooters in the league. He can drive and finish with the best of them. He’s still just a rookie. I think it’s time we stop boxing players up and thinking they can only push their own bar so far within a certain time frame. With Jaylen Brown with him, they could become a dynamic duo like Vince Carter & Tracy McGrady. Their ceiling could be Jordan & Pippen. I’m sure that sentence caught your attention.

Imagine what Tatum would be like if he inherited his very own team as a rookie. That’s how I see him now. The future in Boston is bright!

  2. When Kyrie Irving got traded to the Boston Celtics I announced on Twitter that Jayson Tatum one that trade I knew he would shine so bright and why would be blinded to it until the playoffs I really like Jayson Tatum and I like Jaylen Brown and I do think they are the future of the Boston Celtics along with Kyrie and Hayward but can they get past the Sixers that’s the real question
