This isnít aimed at the original point (i.e, Tatumís playoff record versus Gordonís), but really, who cares about who is the better player? I get it in terms of how exciting it is to have a young potential all star on the team (possibly stars, given Brownís performance), but letís not forget that Hayward has actually produced these stats throughout the course of a season and proven a level of consistency that is admirable in its own right.
Tatum is really good. The comparisons to Pierce, Paul George, Danny Granger, (insert other all star) are all justified and exciting. And Hayward? Hayward is also really good; his ability to put up 20, 5, and 5 is documented and, again, exciting. I think the most exciting part of this entire scenario is that basketball is in a state in which two players with profiles similar to Tatum and Hayward can coexist and thrive, unlike 15 or so years ago when we would have needed a traditional big to round out the roster.
Itís a good time to be a fan of this exceptionally talented and deep team.
