Jayson Tatum is untouchable. I say we grow with what we have.
While I agree that Tatum should be untouchable, I'm surprised that most commenters make this point about Tatum, but not Brown. I'm pretty sure that Brown will end up being the more valuable player. I'd also argue that keeping them together makes both even more valuable.
I don't see it. Could you care to explain? Tatum does everything that Brown does, only better -- 1.5 years younger.
They are both exciting prospects. Tatum has been the better shooter, and Brown the better defender, but both guys have become quite good at both.
Both guys have a ways to go before they become dominant one on one players, but Brown is much better at finishing through contact, and can finish with either hand, while Tatum is still very right handed, and still has trouble with contact.
Both guys are athletic, hard working, have excellent poise, play with intelligence and are confident, but Jaylen has an advantage over Tatum in all those areas. There probably isn't anyone in the NBA that is both taller and either quicker or faster, and he's also one of the stronger young players in the league. He has Russell Westbrook level athleticism.
I'm very excited to see both guys in the playoffs. They both have stayed within their roles most of the year, and now they are being forced to carry the team. It will be fun to watch.
