 I love them both, but you have to pick a favorite. Immediately after seeing Tatum I thought he was a Perfect Fit next to Brown much better fit than Jackson. But my favorite is Tatum for sure just love is game.

I think we're lucky to have two very talented prospects who both seem like high character individuals.  It makes it hard to decide.  I picked Jaylen just because he's already put in a year of hard work.  I think Jaylen has more athletic ability but Tatum already appears to be more polished.

Regardless, the future is bright.

That's so hard to answer. Jaylen is a unique individual that I'm very excited about but Tatum is someone I've had my eye on the last couple of years before the NBA, love his game. If I have to choose it's Tatum but I'm even more excited that we get to see both grow on this team.

Tatum by far. He's got the entire package and his shot is far better imo

I like both, but I'm definitely on team Tatum - and (I feel slack for saying this), but it's not really very close.

I look at Brown and I see a player who has shown flashes of competence in a wide range of areas - defence, passing, shooting, slashing, rebounding, etc.  But to be completely honest, he hasn't really shown me EXCELLENCE in any one area - and I feel you really need to be elite at something to be a star player in this league. I don't feel that being "pretty good" at lots of things really gets you there.

Tatum has some potential weak points in his game, but none that are significant enough to really concern me.  Yet his ability to score the ball is truly special.  His level of footwork and the array of moves he has...he might well be the 3rd most skilled offensive player on this Celtics roster, and he's a 19 year old rookie!  His offensive upside is through the roof - offensively he pretty much has no floor. How special he becomes I think will be determined by how well he can hold up in other areas (defence, rebounding, playmaking).

I think Tatum will grow into a better scorer, and a more willing go to guy. he seems to show that he is a willing rebounder too, gaining nice position while doing it.

Brown will hopefully be a solid all around player, I think he'll hang his hat on Defense. IMO I'd like to see an in between game develop on offense, a rise up 12-15 foot shot, besides the 3 that is still developing. some times he does force at the rim.

I really like them both as they do complement each other. Both have that coveted wing size and length NBA teams like.

Tatum is a better prospect and has a higher chance for stardom.

But I'm a bigger fan of Jaylen.

Between the two, I would say Tatum is probably more likely to be a star.

But I think Jaylen is a little weirder and I like that so I went with Team Jaylen!  :D

Edit: TP to LilRip for saying pretty much what I said 22 seconds before me.
