When Tatum adds 15 pounds to his frame and gets that mamba mentality, look out. He's just floating around the court right now. Once Smart, IT and Morris get in his head, he'll be a beast.

He's taken over and won 2 games in the second half... I think he's well on his way.

I like what I'm seeing thus far. Really looking forward to seeing him after training camp with the team and then buying in to the Celtics way.

Kid could be a stud and I hope he and Jaylen push each other to be better.

If Tatum can get 25-30 minutes a game does anyone else think he could be a ROY candidate? I do. I think he is that good and could be starting at PF by year's end

It's going to be tough getting the minutes but he's as NBA ready as anyone else in the draft and looks terrific in summer league. Unfortunately, ROY usually goes to the guy who scores the most points regardless of impact on winning.

But he should be in the running.

Encouraged to see how high you are on Tatum.  Seems skilled enough to potentially start by year's end, but I wonder if strength and defense will limit him this season.

We got a free first round pick to go with the best player in the draft.

My oh my.
danny got it.
how many gm's in the league and on this forum would have traded down.


I would have traded down.  With that said, I think Danny also wanted a chance a Dennis Smith.
Tatum is a great pick. I hope that he earns his minutes and gets a chance to contribute early.
What I like about Stevens is that he is not afraid to try line-up changes.  Tatum has a number of  go to moves.  Exciting times to be a Celtic fan and a NBA fan.

Fultz not playing D would have frustrated me . It kind of negates all the things he does on offense watching un drafted  guards blow by him

Hopefully Kyle Kuzma wasn't the right pick after all.

This feels like a massive overreaction to some meaningless summer league games.

Melo's handle? Please... ::)

Not sure on that, but at 19, he's got it all to be great. Just has to put in the work.

Like most Ainge draft picks, this kid is a bball junkie. He will put the work in.
