If he can put up a Bird like rookie season that definitely softens the blow of losing GH
very much

Pierce, in his rookie debut also put up pretty similar impressive stat (19 pts, 9 rbs, 5 ast)

Doesnt tatum look taller than listed? He looks a smidge taller than lebron...longer wingspan than 6'11

I've been saying this all through the preseason. 

I saw him stand next to Ben Simmons a couple of times in the Philly games, and he looks every bit as tall and long as Simmons (who is listed at 6'10" with a 7'0" wingspan).

Considering he was 19 years old when those last measurements were taken, it's entirely possible he could still be growing.  If he were to grow out to 6'10" and his wingspan out to 7'1" or so, with his offensive skill set...wow.  He could be almost Durant-like unstoppable.

We've been comparing him to the wrong former Celtic forward all along ;D

Frankly, all of them share similar physical traits: Very skilled players that don't rely (too much) on athleticism.

Please, I'm begging for both Jayson and Jalen to turn into stars, I haven't had a chance to root for one from the start since I was a toddler cheering Shaq! I (ehem, Cs) need this!!! One at least, please!!!

I think they are both wily and clever aside from that their games are different.

Too bad Tatum does not have Bird genius basketball IQ, eh?   Not even close.

Haha I was just kidding, Bird had a next level understanding of the game and was one of the toughest and grittiest guys to ever play. Hard to ever call someone on his level

Embiid on minute restrictions and Fultz coming off bench, Tatum could be in play for rookie of the year

I believe that Embiid is (finally) no longer considered rookie.

Wait...Larry went 0-1 from three and Tatum 1-2? Does this mean...TATUM IS GOIGN TO BE A BETTER THREE POINT SHOOTER THEN BIRD!?!?!

And yes I am only joking so please don't hate haha although I am really struggling to control my hype level for Tatum. Really love this kid and I feel his potential is through the roof.

Precisely, and thank the lord for that.  I really don't like this idea of 22-23 year old guys who have been on NBA rosters for 2-3 years still being classified as rookies. 

Even if these guys haven't played a game they have been being paid NBA money, been trained by NBA trainers and dieticians, been schooled by NBA coaches and veterans, and in many cases have even engaged in practice sessions for 2-3 years against NBA teammates.

That's really not a fair player to compare against a young kid coming fresh out of college at 19 having absolutely zero NBA experience outside of a couple of months of summer league and training camp.

I mean seriously. look at Embiid's body at the start of last season - it was transformed quite dramatically from where it was on draft day, as had his skill set.  You really cannot consider him to be even remotely the same player he was when he was a TRUE rookie.

I also don't really like the idea of guys who have been playing professional basketball for years in overseas coming in and being given a shot at rookie of the year.  Again, a guy like Dario Saric (who is like 25 or 26 and played 3-4 years pro basketball in Europe against grown men) is not even remotely comparable to a guy like Fultz or Tatum, who come into the league at 19 having never played a game of professional basketball in their lives and who have never competed against guys older then 24. 

A great example was that Knicks player (Prigioni or whatever his name was) who came over to the NBA about 5 years ago at the age of like 35 years old and was considered a rookie.  That's just silly IMHO.
