NBA Champion, Nike's Top Boy, Olympic Gold again?

He is about the get the largest contract in NBA history. Can we just declare this the Summer of Tatum?

He should have been the MVP of The Finals. But other than that, yes, it's the Summer of Tatum.

I really fucking hate that this is a narrative among fans. Brown deserved that win. Maybe it should have been co-MVPs. Whatever. Don’t cheapen a legitimate win with all of this shit

Isn't this just celebrating the guy though? He's about to have a fucking run!
Sure, but talking about his summer less than 2 hours after banner 18 is insane. Just enjoy the win tonight, be gremlins tomorrow(and yes complaining about finals MVP right now is even more insane)

Oh for sure, I missed the MVP talk. My brain isn't processing that right now!

Fuck off. I know way more about the game than you and "fans." Don't insult me.

Totally normal response dude. I didn’t insult you either. I said your response fucking sucked. I will say it again. Your response fucking sucked. You have an incredibly inflated opinion about yourself. It’s cool that you coach but calm down.
And wasn’t your “coach” opinion that the Mavericks made a ton of adjustments that would help them win Game 5?
Gotta say man, it’s kinda weird that you’re celebrating the title by trying to restart Jaylen Brown fights. We don’t have to compare these two guys to each other. We won the title. It’s awesome. Enjoy it.

I agree with you

but you’re responding to me after I said its shitty to put them against each other and got a response of “fuck off, I know way more than you”?

I think you’re responding to the wrong person if your idea is that we don’t have to compare them.

EDIT: I specifically said in the post before “fuck off, I know way more than you” that maybe they should have won co-MVPs. I really think you’re posting towards the wrong poster.

I don’t have a problem with you but that response is so fucking shitty you deserve to be checked
Ok. If folks here want me to go away then fine. I will. Enjoy your forum. The Mavs made adjustments in game 4. I stand by that. I never said they were insurmountable. I saw some counters the Celtics made tonight. I'm not sure how I was wrong. Maybe no one cares to hear them. IDK. I was celebrating Tatum as in the Summer of Tatum. He should have the MVP. You can disagree and give a reasonable, substantive response but instead chose to insult me. Fine. I'll leave you to it.

dont leave because of me. You’re a valuable contributor. I apologize for my last post. We should be celebrating the Celtics.
That’s my bad

All of the hot takes about Tatum not being enough of a star to win a chamionship can now be officially tossed into the shredder. This isn't just the summer of Tatum (though it is that), but also Tarum taking that next step into elite status.

I can't imagine a summer like this as a 26-yo. Really any age, but especially when you're so young, rich, and at the pinnacle of an indescribably competitive industry...how do you even process this?

It’s basically Tay Tay and Ta-Tum’s world right now.

I came off too strongly. I don't think I understood your post. My bad. Let's move on.
