Jayson Tatum Sets Another Celtics Record

After it was announced that Kevin Durant would be out through the NBA All-Star break with a left hamstring sprain, the NBA named Domantas Sabonis as his replacement on the roster and Jayson Tatum as his replacement in the starting lineup.

Tatum will become the youngest Celtic ever to start in an All-Star game. Tatum was already the youngest Celtic ever to be named a multiple time All-Star. The game will be played on Sunday, March 7th.

The All-Star draft will take place on March 4th at 8pm ET on TNT. The injured Durant will reportedly still serve as the team captain despite not playing in the game and will select the roster for his team as they go up against LeBron James, who was voted as the other captain.

Tatum is still deciding whether or not he will compete in this year’s NBA Skills Challenge or Three Point Contest. He has stated that he wants to participate in one, but not both. Tatum won the Skills Challenge in 2019 in very dramatic fashion…

Tatum also said he wouldn’t be entering the NBA Dunk Contest, but maybe he should reconsider after what he did to Robin Lopez on Sunday night…
