Kyrie rubbing off on him? I never thought he was this crafty in draft scouting videos, it wasn't too apparent


This team is going to be scary when Hayward returns

I was extremely impressed by Tatum's move and score in that game.  If he makes that a regular feature of his game... he is going to be unstoppable!!

After Tatum got his ankles broken right before that, you knew he was going to try to get his back.

Had a feeling by mid-season last year that Jaylen could play/defend the 2 guard position. Then, Brad started using him more and more in this role. Now, he seems to relish that role.

This season, watching Jason dribble the ball upcourt, I keep thinking, maybe... with a little improvement in his handle, he could eventually be a playmaker la Magic Johnson.
Dribbling moves like the one in this video make me wonder if he's closer to that point than I imagined.

An off season regimen with intense dribbling and passing drills might put him in a position to be in that category. I've noticed impressive handle improvements in Brown, Rozier and Smart this season. Perhaps, next year might be Jason's turn.

lol. Jayson Tatum is not going to be Magic Johnson.

I love his handle and I think he has untapped playmaking skills that will come eventually but I'm talking about his being able to run the pick and roll and average 5-6 apg like most of the great wing scorers have done. He's not going to suddenly become a playmaker on par with the greatest pg of all time.

I simply love this move.
When I saw it live for the 1st time, I was like;
"OK, this is what a future all-star plays like."
I saw it 50 times more since and I still love it.
"The joy of the balling under the rims."
