Jayson Tatum:

    Getty Images Brad Stevens talks with Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will undoubtedly adhere to taking on increased roles for the coming 2020-21 Boston Celtics but, still, head coach Brad Stevens reminded everyone that the success of his team isn’t solely up to his dynamic duo. Sure, Tatum and Brown’s contract extensions make them the two franchise cornerstone pillars. They’re signed, together, through 2024. However, Stevens says hierarchy and talk that, “This is now Tatum and Brown’s team,” is irrelevant. “Those two guys have huge responsibilities,” Stevens said. “They’ve got a great deal of responsibility as part of this team and with the roles that they play on this team. They’re clearly guys that have made huge plays all the way throughout their career and will continue to do so.”Brad Stevens: ‘We’re All One Team And We Represent The Celtics’Tatum and Brown’s ascensions...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Jayson Tatum isn’t going to let the max contract that he just signed with the Boston Celtics change who he is. Tatum sees the opportunity ahead of him, and he’s going to run with it. Tatum and the Celtics agreed to a rookie scale extension for the 22-year-old last weekend, one that will keep Tatum as the face of Boston basketball for at least six more season. He said that signing the deal still hasn’t quite sunk in, but signing a max deal with one of the NBA’s most successful franchises is not something that is not lost on Tatum. “It’s a dream come true,” Tatum said Tuesday as the Celtics tipped off training camp. “I’m extremely grateful and thankful; I don’t take it for granted or lightly. I get to be here for five more years.” His five-year deal worth upwards of $195 million won’t kick...

    BOSTON (CBS) – Jayson Tatum says he plans on staying with the Boston Celtics “for a very long time,” and that should be great news for Celtics fans. The Celtics officially announced Tatum’s contract extension Wednesday, but didn’t reveal details. It’s reportedly a five-year extension that could be worth up to $195 million. Tatum is only 22 years old and he has become one of the NBA’s best players since Boston drafted him third overall in 2017. He made his first All-Star team last season and was named to the All-NBA Third-Team. “I am incredibly grateful to the Celtics organization, and the city of Boston for this opportunity,” Tatum said in a statement released by the team. “I love this city, this organization, and the best fans in the NBA. I plan on being here for a very long time.”
    The Boston Celtics cashed in big on their brightest player by offering Jayson Tatum a 5-year $195 million contract. Teams have been spending big during the offseason, and Tatum’s extension adds to the tally. After finalizing the deal, Tatum posted a message of gratitude which saw a reply from the Cs GM Danny Ainge. Tatum was delighted with signing the rookie max extension, and he has completely earned it. The 22-year-old has been brilliant in his first three years. After signing the deal, he wrote on Twitter, “Can’t do nothing but thank God.”  Tatum’s tweet was welcomed by warm messages from Celtics fans who valued his presence on the team. But Celtics’ GM and President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge stole the attention with his powerful 11-word message for the young superstar. “Stay humble, stay grateful, stay hungry. Let your light so shine,” Ainge replied on Twitter.  Stay humble,...
    Getty Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics The big story for the Celtics in this offseason has been the fact that they simply did not want to pay a massive amount of money to forward Gordon Hayward, who left Boston for Charlotte on a four-year, $120 million deal.  But the bigger story is that the Celtics have a guy on hand who is worthy of a record contract—Jayson Tatum, who agreed to an extension on his rookie deal that will be worth at least $163 million and could reach nearly $200 million.

    Jayson Tatum signed a huge contract extension with Gordon Hayward’s money. It was largely expected that Tatum, as well as Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell, would sign a five-year extension worth a lump sum, keeping him in Boston for the long-term. Tatum is just 22 years of age, having been selected third overall in the 2017 NBA Draft. The first pick of that draft, Markelle Fultz, is already on his second team after the 76ers dealt him to the Orlando Magic. The Celtics finessed the Sixers into trading for that No. 1 spot, and ended up getting the player they wanted as well in the then-former Duke star Tatum. Years later, and Tatum is an All-Star talent, and potentially has MVP potential.

    BOSTON (CBS) — A tough weekend for the Boston Celtics just got a bit better. Rising superstar Jayson Tatum isn’t going anywhere for a while. Tatum has reportedly agreed to a five-year, $195 million extension with the team, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Tatum was not a free agent, but he was eligible for his rookie scale extension this offseason. And the Celtics had no problem sending that extension Tatum’s way, as the 22-year-old has certainly earned the big-money payday. Tatum has become one of the NBA’s best players since Boston drafted him third overall in 2017. He took his game to new levels last season, averaging 23.4 points while shooting 45 percent from the floor and 40 percent from three-point range. He added a career-high seven rebounds and three assists per game as well. It all earned Tatum his first All-Star nod and All-NBA Third-Team honors. During Boston’s playoff...
    Getty Could Aron Baynes (left) and Jayson Tatum (right) team up for the Boston Celtics again? Of all the centers in all the NBA who have been linked to the Boston Celtics through free-agency musing, idle trade rumor, or legitimate past interest (just about every center, that is), the one who remains the simplest to acquire and most logical to wind up on the team next year has a familiar face: Australian big man Aron Baynes, who played for Boston in 2017-18 and 2018-19 before he was shipped to Phoenix to make room for the signing of Kemba Walker. That is why it was noteworthy that Celtics star Jayson Tatum posted a photo on Snapchat this week, showing him on a past team flight, with Baynes smilingly waving in the background. In some circles (starting with Barstool’s Dan Greenberg), there was speculation that perhaps Tatum could be recruiting...

    Jayson Tatum set goals for himself at the beginning of last season. He wanted to make the All-Star game, average 20 points a game, win an NBA title, and make the All-NBA team. All of these goals were to achieve his larger goal – get a 90 rating in NBA 2K21. And Tatum did most of the above. He made his first All-Star game, averaged close to 24 points-per-game in the regular season (26 in the playoffs), and the All-NBA third team. All of this, in Tatum’s mind, was enough to get him into the elusive ’90’s Club’ in 2K.

    Getty Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics The only time he was asked directly to address the topic of signing an extension to stay in Boston, as the Celtics’ time in the NBA bubble expired following their loss in the Eastern Conference finals, Jayson Tatum demurred, saying only that the Celtics “just lost,” indicating he was not prepared to talk about it. “I haven’t even thought about that yet,” he told reporters at his postgame press conference. “I was just focused on this season. The front office and my agent have got to talk about it. But I’m not thinking about that right now. We just lost a series. Just thinking about the guys in the locker room and the games. That’s what I’m thinking about. Stuff like that, going to happen, if it happens, it’s not really my concern. I’m not even thinking about that.” But Tatum is in...
    Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said that standout guard Kemba Walker was “definitely hot himself” during the restarted season in the NBA bubble near Orlando. The Celtics reached the Eastern Conference finals before losing to the Miami Heat in six games and Ainge indicated Walker’s health was an issue the entire time. The 30-year-old’s three-time surgically repaired left knee was hampering him throughout the 2 1/2 months the team spent at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. “I could see, even when he was (in Boston) before the bubble started, which is why he was shut down a little bit and doing strength training and trying to prepare himself for the playoff run and the intensity of the playoff run, but he was definitely not himself,” Ainge said during a season wrap-up conference call on Thursday. “In fairness to Kemba, he doesn’t want to say that. He doesn’t...
    After suffering another huge disappointment in the 2019-20 NBA season, rumors have once again started to swirl around All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns and his future with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Despite the addition of his close pal, D’Angelo Russell, before the 2020 February trade deadline, there are speculations that Towns may still consider following the footsteps of other superstars and start finding his way out of Minnesota this fall. The Timberwolves are yet to address the rumors surrounding the face of the franchise, but if he really demands a trade, they will be left with no choice but to entertain offers for him in the 2020 offseason. One of the teams that are expected to express a strong interest in acquiring Towns from the Timberwolves is the Boston Celtics. According to Eddie Bitar of Fadeaway World, the Celtics could form a “Big Three” of Towns, Jayson Tatum, and Kemba Walker in...

    ORLANDO, Fla. — Their season saved for at least two more days, Boston coach Brad Stevens offered the most succinct assessment of his Celtics. “We’re prideful,” Stevens said. Celtic Pride. It was on display Friday night — when Jayson Tatum and his teammates announced very loudly that they’re not ready to see the world that exists outside the NBA’s restart bubble quite yet. Tatum had 31 points and 10 rebounds, Jaylen Brown added 28 points and the Celtics shook off a slow first half to top the Miami Heat 121-108 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals and stave off elimination. “Our deal was to come out and play, come out and compete, give it our best shot and I thought we played pretty well in the second half,” Stevens said. “But we’re going to have to do it again and again because of the position we’re in.” The...
    Tyler Herro’s Game 4 explosion spawned a million terrible puns and moved the Heat one step closer to an NBA Finals berth. Tyler Herro is a wispy mustache and a bottomless fountain of swagger. He’s Scott Pilgrim breaking the fourth wall with a whimsical wink. He’s 20 years old and, apparently, an unstoppable offensive engine. He’s also the most visceral reason the Heat are one game away from an absurdly improbable NBA Finals appearance. The Heat’s zone flummoxed the Celtics again, helping keep Jayson Tatum scoreless in the first half and forcing double-digit turnovers. Goran Dragic, Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler each went for 20 points. But the key wasn’t strategy or offensive depth, it was a skinny-a** bolt of white lightning, burning the Celtics to the ground. Herro went for 37 points on 14-of-21 from the field and 5-of-10 from beyond the arc. He finished up-and-under reverse layups, drilled...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics finally got a win over the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night, and they did so with a well-balanced team effort. Four players scored 20 or more points for Boston, with Jaylen Brown leading the way with a team-high 26. Of course Jayson Tatum was among those four players, dropping 25 points of his own in Boston’s 117-106 win, because Jayson Tatum is usually at or near the top of Boston’s scoring when the game is over. It’s just kind of expected out of the 22-year-old, who has been making everything look so darn easy every night. Because Tatum puts up some absurd stat lines with relative ease, they can occasionally be overlooked. I know, Celtics fans aren’t ones to overlook the accomplishments of their young stars, but that has become the case with Tatum. When...

The series stands at 2-1 and Celtics have brought their star player, Gordon Hayward back after a month of injury.

On the contrary, Heat collapsed with a disappointing performance on the court. Jayson Tatum put up an impressive show with 25 points, 14 rebounds, and eight assists, nearly making it to the triple-double.

    The Miami Heat have already taken a 2-0 lead in the Boston Celtics. After eliminating the Bucks in the Conference Semi-Finals, the confidence of this Heat team is at an all-time high. And it’s none other than Jimmy Butler who has made this possible. When Butler signed a deal with the Heat, many were skeptical of Butler’s decision. Honestly, at that time leaving Philly seemed like a bad decision. However, Butler proved his critics wrong and the Heat are just two games away from making a finals appearance in six years. Although Butler is the glue that holds together this team, the pieces around him suit Butler perfectly. Bam Adebayo has taken one of the biggest jumps of the season. Not only did he became a first-time All-Star, but he has also carried that form into the postseason. In Game 1 of the ECF, the Heat completed a huge comeback...

The series extended to seven games, but Jayson Tatum carried the team on his back and led the team like a veteran. Tatum earned his reward for his second-round heroics as he is reunited with his son, Deuce, in almost two months. Following the five-month hiatus, the league’s biggest concern was ensuring the safety of players and staff. And it’s safe to say they took care of that department pretty well.

The other two? Larry Bird and LeBron James.  The 22-year-old Tatum also became the second-youngest player ever with a 25-10-5 line in a Game 7. The youngest? Some guy named Kobe Bryant. It wasn’t easy for Tatum and the Celtics to rid themselves of the Raptors, because nothing ever is with this Toronto group. The...

    BOSTON (CBS) — It certainly seemed like Raptors head coach Nick Nurse, who was essentially standing on the court, caused Celtics forward Jayson Tatum to make a costly turnover at the end of regulation in Game 6. Tatum wouldn’t blame Nurse after the game, but one of his teammates had no problem calling out the NBA’s Coach of the Year. The play came in the final minute of regulation of Wednesday night’s double overtime thriller. With the score knotted at 98-98, Tatum drove to the basket and kicked the ball to Daniel Theis in the corner. The only issue was he didn’t throw it to Theis, but to Nurse, who was standing in the corner of the court with one foot on the line. Nurse jumped out of the way of Tatum’s pass, and the Raptors took over. A lot happened after that play, but Toronto went on to win...
    NBA coaches can guide their teams through crunch-time possessions with play designs and lineup adjustments, but they are typically limited in how much they are able to directly impact games. Then there’s Raptors coach Nick Nurse, who may have caused a turnover in his team’s Game 6 win over the Celtics on Wednesday night. With less than a minute to go in regulation and the game tied at 98, Celtics forward Jayson Tatum drove past Pascal Siakam and encountered OG Anunoby helping off his man. That opened a clear passing lane to Daniel Theis. MORE: Kyle Lowry pens masterpiece in Raptors’ Game 6 win Unfortunately for Boston, Tatum’s pass flew right by Theis.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Jayson Tatum never saw Lou Brock play baseball, but as a proud St. Louis native, he knew what “The Franchise” meant to his home city. So when the Celtics forward took the court for Game 5 against the Raptors on Monday night, he wanted to honor his hometown legend. Brock passed away at the age of 81 on Sunday, and to honor him, Tatum had “R.I.P. Lou Brock” written on his sneakers for Monday night’s game. Tatum spoke of Brock’s legacy after Boston’s blowout win over Toronto, and what he meant to him growing up in St. Louis. “One of the best players ever, one of the best players to play for the Cardinals. I never got to see him play but I know what he meant to the organization and to the city,” said Tatum. “I just wanted to shed some light on that for the...

    IBy Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Jayson Tatum has never really received much love from the refs. The Celtics rising star could get bullied on the way to the basket, and usually, he wouldn’t get the benefit of the doubt from the zebras. That was a little different in Tuesday night’s Game 2 win over the Raptors, as Tatum took — and made — 14 free throws en route to a 34-point outburst. All those freebies contributed to the 22-year-old setting a new playoff career-high for himself and the Celtics earning a 102-99 victory. Raptors head coach Nick Nurse took umbrage to that, voicing his displeasure with the officiating crew after Boston’s win. “The only frustrating part about it is this: he shoots 14 free throws, which is as much as our whole team shoots,” said Nurse, whose Raptors now trail the Celtics 2-0 in the series. “That’s...
    Raptors coach Nick Nurse criticized the officiating in their Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics, saying the referees “took very good care” of Jayson Tatum. The Celtics moved 2-0 up in the Eastern Conference semi-final series with a 102-99 victory over reigning champions the Raptors on Tuesday. Tatum scored 34 points and Marcus Smart hit five three-pointers in the space of just over three minutes in the fourth quarter to propel Boston to success. Tatum hit all 14 of his free throws – two shy of the makes from the line by Toronto as a whole and just five fewer than the amount they were awarded. In his postgame news conference, Nurse said: “The only frustrating part about it is this. He shoots 14 free throws, which is as much as our whole team shoots. That’s the frustrating part. “I think our guys were working hard on him...
    Jayson Tatum has the chance to take the Boston Celtics to the promised land if he can fill out his scoring ability in the postseason. With the Bucks looking fallible in the Bubble and other Eastern Conference contenders either faltering or unable to stack up to the Celtics’ star power, Boston certainly seems a candidate to bust through to the Conference Finals and potentially further this season. That’s the result of many things, including great coaching, depth at the most important position in the NBA, and the rejuvenation of Kemba Walker. But it’s mostly because Jayson Tatum has the chance to be the best player in any series the Celtics face. Boston this season boasted the fourth-best offensive and fourth-best defensive efficiency, typically a clear sign of a championship contender. While they have holes (such as size down low), they have looked the part of a title-chaser in Orlando, thanks...

    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Heading into the Celtics-76ers playoff series, the consensus was that Boston was the better team but Philadelphia had the best player in the series. People should stop saying that. Joel Embiid has been great to start games, but Jayson Tatum has been downright dominant throughout. The Celtics forward has found some sort of cheat code in the Orlando bubble, thrusting himself into “superstar” status in the process. Tatum once again made Philadelphia regret not taking him in the 2017 NBA Draft (you know, after trading with Boston for the first overall pick), torching the 76ers for 33 points in his 31 minutes in Wednesday night’s Game 2 victory. Tatum had his usual moves going but he was even more lethal from downtown, draining eight of his 12 triples.

The result was a collective victory over Goliath, as Boston now leads this first-round playoff series 2-0.

    The Celtics suffered an injury setback in Game 1, with Gordon Hayward suffering an ankle sprain Hayward’s injury history is long and slightly complicated, but any setback is a severe one for a player that means so much to the Boston Celtics’ offensive execution.

The former Butler Bulldog landed awkwardly on teammate Daniel Theis’ foot, and had to leave the game with the assistance of the Celtics training staff.

    Jayson Tatum is one of the most exciting young stars in the league. He has emerged as a high-level contributor to a playoff team. That team is the Boston Celtics, who drafted Tatum with the third pick in the 2017 Draft. The Celtics traded down from the first pick to get Tatum. However, JT never wanted to go to Boston as he told J.J. Redick on his podcast. “Phoenix had the fourth pick so I was in Phoenix. I went to go meet with the coach and see the facility and see the players and all that and I remember my agent called me. I think I had a flight that night to go back home.” Tatum went on to talk about this call he had with his agent. His agent informed him of the Boston situation, but Tatum still wasn’t too sure of making the shift. “‘He’s like ‘It’s not...
    Jayson Tatum has emerged as a young superstar in the modern NBA. One of the reasons for this success according to Tatum was the relationship he shared with the great Kobe Bryant. Tatum worked with Bryant in the summer of 2018 after his rookie season. He shared how that experience was like on the JJ Redick podcast. “It started when we were back in the playoffs. Kobe was doing the detailed documentary thing on ESPN. We were playing Cleveland in the ECF and we just played game 1. “We had practice the next day and were getting ready for game 2… I saw Kobe tweeted about me.
