Justin Tatum, father of the Boston Celtics forward, told the Boston Globeís Adam Himmelsbach on Tuesday he expects his sonís workout with Kobe Bryant to drive his improvement as a player. The late-July workout was perhaps the highlight of Jayson Tatumís offseason, given the fact the Los Angeles Lakers legend is his favorite player. NBA partisans have problems with Bryant working out with the Jayson Tatum, but Justin Tatum believes the unique experience will have a similar impact on his sonís game as a thousand coaching sessions with someone else. ďWe had over an hour, hour-and-a-half conversation,Ē Justin Tatum said. ďHe was like a kid in the candy store. It was like he was 20 years old going back to 12, or even 9. ďIt was just good to hear your son on the other end meet his idol, talk to his idol, and hear his idol say a lot of good things about him. It just gives him more drive. Thatís just more fuel to a kid thatís already ready to go. It was a blessing to hear how happy he was. ďÖ Itís surreal, but I mean itís more that Iím happy that itís something more to keep him going and keep challenging him, because some players stop being challenged. Heís just finding way more things to do to get better.Ē

Yeah, that's not happening. Tatum most likely won't even be the best player on the Celtics this season.

He may not even be the 3rd best on the team.

We should only be so lucky.

I wouldnt be too quick to say that Tatum won't be the best player on the Celtics this season! He may just prove you wrong.

We have 3 guys who, when last healthy, were All-Stars. I'm not ruling it out, but I'd be surprised if Tatum has already eclipsed them

More than happy to be proven wrong though ;D

Healthy being the operative word there.

After watching the kid last year throughout the Season and the postseason how in the world could any Celtics fan honestly be surprised at anything this kid does going forward at this point... He's a special player...

He may not even be the 3rd best on the team.

He might even becomes a bench player... ::)

I am sure that Tatum will be better this year but i don't like this kind of promises..... Especially when it's the wrong Tatum making them

Tatum will be an excellent player but I'm not sure how much a single workout will have to do with it.

It's possible, sixth man.  Nobody is dissing Tatum.  He's on a stacked team this season.
