The Rafters Pod Ep. 81: Is Jayson Tatum The Worst Superstar Ever?

Must read

We are back with another episode of The Rafters Podcast! The Celtics keep winning and losing in ugly fashion and someone needs to take the blame. Is that blame going towards a dysfunctional organization or towards Jayson Tatum, the worst superstar?

The Celtics came out with a stressful one point win against the Philadelphia 76ers. Both teams played poorly and the low scoring 88-87 affair tells the tale. Star, Jaylen Brown was clearly playing through injury and looked almost unplayable come the end of the game. The team will likely be without Brown for a few matches as he recovers.

With Jaylen missing time, that leaves the door open to get younger guys like Langford and Pritchard to contribute. First year Coach Ime Udoka has been conservative when it comes to his developing players. Langford, Pritchard, and Nesmith were all held out of the game in Philly due to coaches decision. Liam finds this outrageous when he thinks about how they could have contributed more than an injured Jaylen Brown. The hosts acknowledge they are repetitive with their criticism, but NOTHING CHANGES. Udoka elects to play one or none of the younger developing guys in a strong majority of games. For a struggling team like the Celtics they need to take the help anywhere they can get it. Things are so bad, Justin suggests the idea of Brad Stevens coming down from the front office and forcing the coach’s hand. At some point Stevens can’t sit up there and be happy with the product the Celtics are putting out on the court.

Liam wonders if Jayson Tatum is the worst superstar ever? This seasons field goal percentages for the young star say it all. They are top five worst in history ever and the second Celtics on the list.
