Did Jayson Tatum Suck All Season on Purpose?

Jayson Tatum had one of the best rookie shooting seasons in NBA history last season but went under the radar behind Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell arguing over the definition of the word ‘rookie’ and everyone over analyzing grainy footage of Markelle Fultz missing jump shots at practice.

Then Tatum emerged to the front of the NBA in the playoffs after Kyrie Irving went down with a knee injury. Tatum carried the Celtics to a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals against LeBron James.

“Hold my dick, Lebron” -Jayson.

Fast forward to the 2018-19 season and Tatum absolutely vanished. After spending the summer working out with Kobe Bryant, Tatum came back to the Celtics and turned into a garbage basketball player.

Lolololol. Thank you, Kobe. You know what Tatum’s game needed? A mid-range contested fadeaway jumper with 18 seconds left on the shot clock.

But that’s regular season Jayson. Playoff Jayson is a different breed of cat. Playoff Jayson just dropped 26 points on 11-of-20 shooting to get the Indiana Pacers the fuck out of here.

Tatum scored the last 5 points to seal the game for Boston. He’s back, bitches. Hey Indiana, don’t bother showing up to Games 3 and 4. You lost. It’s over. Jayson Tatum tricked the league into thinking he was a bum but he was saving his bullets for the postseason.

Pray for the Eastern Conference.

Created Deadseriousness after being fired from every job I've ever had. One faithful night I drew the conclusion that if I was going to be unemployed, I might as well write articles that will guarantee I am un-hireable going forward. This website is the equivalent to a face tattoo.

E-mail to talk directly about all Deadseriousness related stuff or if you just want to talk about like, the Yankees or Marvel comics or whatever.
