Tough to reconcile a guy who was dunking on LeBron in an ECF Game 7 as a rookie to the guy who looked passive in the ECSF as a 2nd year player. I think it’s just normal growing pains combined with the Kyrie malaise. We all focus on Jaylen and Kyrie but I think Tatum may have been impacted just as much.This was easy six months ago, but in the playoffs Tatum really made me question where his lack of mental toughness puts his ceiling.
Tatum is a real basketball player. Brown is a real athlete.
This is a big summer for Tatum. He needs to keep building on his progress to-date and keep getting stronger.
