FUTURE TOP DOG

NBA ROLE: OFFENSIVE STAR

 

Jayson Tatum is...just a pure hooper, plain & simple - body type, play style & confidence of someone who'll perform at a high level for a very long time; very polished offensive player - Tatum's development was aided by winning gold w/ Team USA (U19) & his lone season w/ Coach Mike Krzyzewski at Duke - comfortable going 1-on-1 & getting solo buckets; death by ISO: one-dribble pull-ups, one-dribble step backs, one-legged fadeaways, up & unders, leaners - (no question) J. Tatum will score a lot of points as a pro; developing playmaker, mainly looks to get his - narrative will eventually change as he gets more comfortable as a creator; solid rebounder, needs to bulk up & get even tougher on D (good tools, doesn't get bullied/succumb to physicality); decent athlete by NBA standards, though possesses many crafty "1st" steps/moves - must continue adding counters to get by/score over his matchup; 1-2 punch w/ Kemba?; emerging star - can J. Tatum (help) lead BOS back to the top?
