“I beat you in the playoffs.”
“4-1 is all I know.”
God, I love this kid. The cockiness. The play to back it up. Oh ya, and the playoff victory. It is Jayson Tatum’s world and we are all just living in it. Not only is he matching up with Joel Embiid who has 4 inches on him, but he is taking Embiid to the shed with the trash talk. Joel, one of the biggest trash talkers in the league, has nothing to say to Tatum.
Joel can make fun of Aron Baynes and his man bun all he wants, but he can’t say shit to Jayson. Tatum not only diced up Embiid and the whole Philly defense, but the Celtics were just the better team. Oh ya, and that was WITHOUT Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. So I am happy that Joel seems to be getting some reps in with Tatum this summer; he and his whole team are going to need to pick it up if they are even going to think about competing with Boston for the foreseeable future.
But until then, here is a reminder for Joel if he somehow forgot what happened last time.
