Did him working out and gaining muscle over summer help here? He muscles his way down to get a closer shot.

Kid's got the closer gene.
This is all about money laundering.

A 20 year old 6'9" or so wing with a strong fade-away arsenal is crazy.

I am so proud that I kinda called for him in that draft after I saw his highlight.

I am delighted that he went on the strength program I suggested. He needs to get stronger and stronger.

He was great but I think sometimes he is more worried about a move than just taking the shot.   Of course, developing these moves tends to lead to good things down the road.   But sometimes he makes shots more complicated than they have to be at times.

He was an absolute assassin in that moment. Cold blooded shot. He’s got superstar written all over him

He does appear to make some shots more complicated than they need to be at times, but for him, I think he is doing what is comfortable. He seems to have certain moves - like the one-leg fall-away jumper, or the fake dribble side-step three - that are a little unorthodox, but where he seems to have quite a bit of success. His one on one ability is pretty incredible at his age and, with his apparent growth, will just make him more devastating.

He is quickly becoming the best player on the Cs (I know, stop biting on shot fakes on D) and we should all be extremely happy if that happens on a team full of stars.

He's been our best player in these first 3 games. Really encouraging.

He's not there yet but his development is something to behold.

Jayson has the ability to get defenders off balance with that herky-jerky rhythm he has.

His game is expanding more and more, he can take you off the dribble to the rim, he can shoot fall-away shots around the paint, or step back and shoot the three.

When the ball finds his hands I feel he can get a shot whenever he wants.

And this is only the very beginning of the story,

lol PP is already protecting his place. The studio crew was teasing Paul about Tatum having better handles than him when Paul defended his legacy by saying people who said he did not have tight handles or athleticism should visit youtube. LOL.

I had him #2 on my board: 1. Fultz 2. Tatum 3. Ball 4. Jackson

Thought Fultz had superstar potential and Tatum All-Star potential. Glad to be wrong  :)

No disrepect to Pierce to say Tatum’s potential is higher. It’s still mostly potential for now, but on a team that had enough shots to give him, I could see Tatum putting up a very efficient 30 and 10 in a few years. We may have to “settle” for about 22 and 10, plus all-NBA closing ability. The kid will be closing out big playoff games this year.

He’s right last year’s excellent TS% of .583, despite taking more shot creation responsibility. See if he isn’t north of 60% by next year.

Tatum looks like hes ready to be the 2nd best player on the team offensively....going to be scary when Hayward/Kyrie get into a rhythm

I love what Tatum showed so far.
Still, he has a long way to go;
- his defense is shaky, he bites on pump fakes regularly, and gets bumped of spots. Sometimes after a score, he forgets about the other end.
- if he doesn't shoot it, his creating and decision making leave a lot to be desired. As his usage% is rising his TO% is spiking.

Not saying these aren't fixable, just that we are treating him as an All-star and he is not that - yet.
