Jayson Tatum is one of the frontrunners for the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award this season. While he may not win it over Sixers star Ben Simmons, Tatum has been outstanding in Boston, giving the Celtics quite the scoring punch on the wing, averaging 13.9 points per game and connecting on 45.3 percent of his attempts from downtown.
On Saturday night, though, Tatum produced one heck of a highlight because of his ability to dunk. Tatum skied during Boston’s game against Brooklyn, throwing down a thunderous jam that made someone else on the floor look silly.
There was just one problem: Tatum did not dunk on a member of the Nets. Instead, the rookie sensation yammed all over one of his teammates: Celtics big man Aron Baynes.
