Future Celtics star, Jayson Tatum, dominates in Rising Stars Challenge

The Lakers Kyle Kuzma came away with the MVP award, as Team USA defeated Team World in the Rising Stars Challenge - but Jayson Tatum absolutely dominated - scoring 30 points, hauling down nine rebounds and handing off for three assists.


The final score was 161-144 in favor of Jayson's Team USA, and the score clearly indicates that defense was not a major priority in the game. Tatum was clearly having fun out there.



In his second year in the League, Jayson keeps improving his game. He has become a solid rebounder at the small forward position, and his drives to the hoop are stronger and more successful. He will be a true star in this League shortly.


From the above video, you can see this kid already has some swagger. And he backs it up nicely with his game. I see him as an All-Star at next years mid-season festivities.
