Tatum is the third player to publicly be reported as committing to the team following today’s announcement that Damian Lillard and Draymond Green will also play in Tokyo for Team USA.
Tatum hasn’t had much time to have a break since the long layoff the whole world had when COVID-19 first broke out, leading to the suspension of the 2019-20 season.
Jayson Tatum cemented himself as a top 15 player behind a rough season that featured him catching and fighting through COVID-19. Not even COVID stopped Tatum from dominating, even if the Celtics as a team played under expectations, losing in the first round to the Brooklyn Nets in 5 after facing multiple injuries.
It’s no surprise that Tatum was recruited to be one of the top players to play in the Olympics.
