He does have some Melo in him.  Also reminds me a lot of Tobias Harris.

I'm hoping he becomes an All-Star caliber version of Tobias Harris.

I thought you were gonna suggest we trade him for Ball...

He is already an NBA vet.

He has the dirk step back

Carmelos handle

Otto porters length

Should he start over Morris at PF? Because he can clearly rebound too.

I know I want a closing lineup of

IT
Hayward
Tatum
Morris
Horford.

All 5 are legitimate threats 1on 1

Best pick of Dannys career

Harris is a good player in his own right, but he relies a great deal more on athleticism and isn't nearly as polished at Tatum.

Also, if that pick is in the 2-5 range and Fultz has a promising but injury riddled season, we might trade that pick for Fultz for PG help (imo Smart is best served as a 6th man like young Hondo on a dynasty team). We might end up with a Fultz/Brown/Tatum/Smart/Bamba core (think Yabu will be a nice glue guy at PF, similar to what Satch Sanders did for the 60s Celtics).

First post here. Obviously, competition outside of Summer League will be much tougher, but it doesn't change the fact that the ridiculously smooth moves and excellent shot creation will 100% translate to the NBA for Tatum.

He seems like at least an average defender, and I believe he'll be an offensive superstar. Never been this excited about a rookie in any sport (with Hackenberg on my Jets taking a close second).

I'm so glad we didn't trade Tatum and our future for a superstar. He IS a superstar, and we get to keep our future. We don't want to compete for 3-4 years, we want to be a Spurs-like DYNASTY. And Tatum will be an excellent building block. Not as high on Smart/Brown.

Welcome. Good first post.
Jaylen Brown will be an All Star in the next 5 years.

He is NOT better than Brown, yet

If he can do what he does in SL and it won't be as good, he will be.  The question is can he do it against real NBA players?   I think signs are pointing to yes, and I think he will be better.  He seems more NBA ready than Brown who has played a year in the NBA.   Do you think Brown's trade value has went up or down after summer league?   Tatum's has went up I wager, he has outplayed Fultz and Ball.

 Tatum's handle is more reliable, his shot is more reliable.   We are not talking dribbling off his foot that Brown is better at.

I'm with those who say Tatum is a stud with higher upside than Brown. The kid is mature beyond his years on the court, and can shoot, pass and rebound. Remarkable for his age.
Jaylen still needs to work on his shooting.

I would not be surprised if Tatum starts at the 4. He looks that good so far.

I'm extremely excited about Tatum, but realistically this was the deepest NBA draft in years, it's not clear that Tatum is the best of the top 10 picks let alone the top three.  There are more rookies having outstanding performances in SL this year than any year I can ever remember.  Even late first round picks and mid second round picks like Kyle Kuzma and Sindarius Thornwell are putting up 30 point games. 

To give an idea of how deep this draft was compared to last year, Ivan Rabb was projected as a top 10 pick last year and went 35th this year.

I think Jaylen and Jayson have both proven they can be contributors on this years squad.

I know outside of Jaylen's opening performance he has been lackluster, but context is important.  I think the coaches were trying to use him as a playmaker more so far in SL because of his growth as a player.  He's in positions he hasn't been in before and just trying to get more exposure to ball handling.  He hasn't looked great with his handles (improved though) but that's part of the player growth.

Tatum has looked a lot more natural with the ball in his hands than Brown, but he also doesn't seem to be looking to create for others as much as he's looking for his own shot... I'm okay with that too.  I think it's easier to teach a player to create for others than it is to turn a distributor into a shot maker.

So what's the excuse for last year in college ? Because of the top prospects, I thought Tatum last year was the best of the bunch.

He's got it all. Still has to put in the work though, and it looks like he's the type to do just that.

Tatum is Paul pierce.  Jaylen might be Ron mercer.
