Man I'm already falling in love with Jayson Tatum.

Good news? He's only 19 and can only improve from here.

Tatum finishes with 27 and 11.

Holy ****. If he can play defense he may force Hayward to the 4 sooner than later.
Jaylen Brown will be an All Star in the next 5 years.

Anyone still want fultz? Anyone anyone?

Yes.

Eh. I always had Fultz at 1 and Tatum at 2 with a sizable gap between them in their ceilings, but after watching them a couple of games so far I think their ceilings are actually about the same now.

Seeing how polished Tatum is offensively already, combined with his better-than-advertised defense, rebounding, and length, I think they can both end up as perennial All-Star types.

And one thing that Tatum has going for him that Fultz does not is the "fire" and "swagger" that big-time scorers usually have.

Wow great game for Jayson again but FINALLY a Semi sighting. Semi played great and hit at least 4 threes and looked comfortable finally. Good to see.


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

Played just about every position as well.  He was impressive.

I love Tatum. I had him #3 on my board and think he's going to be great. I still take Markelle ten times out of ten over Tatum. Fultz has just as much polish as a scorer, just as good physical tools, and elite passing ability. He's the full package.

Nice win before another hostile crowd out west. First Utah, then Vegas. Why couldn't they have played in Orlando?

They started this one rough, as Tatum said post game--down 18-4. But recovered their poise to pull ahead. Faltered a bit the last minute or two with TOs and easy baskets for LA. Didn't take too well to pressing. But held on for nice win.

Tatum is the man. Clearly. He'll score in the NBA. Brown showing he isn't the scorer Tatum is.
Semi looks great. 20 pts. He'll stick. Nader also.  Zizic is a questionmark. Not very fluid. Taken out early. Played 10 mins.

Ainge has got to be concerned about Zizic's role. He should be on the phone looking for an experienced big. The kid may need some D league time.

I really wish Yab was playing.  He's been compared to Semi, or vice versa, quite a bit.  Yab looked a lot better last year.  I would have liked to see how he's improved.
