BOSTON – Jayson Tatum is fresh off his best statistical season in a Celtics uniform, but he’s still disappointed that he did not make any All-NBA teams this year. He averaged a career-best 26.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists over 64 games, which were better numbers this season than in the 2019-20 season, when he was named to the All-NBA Third Team.
Along with not getting the recognition, the 23-year-old lost out on some extra money. The Celtics inked Tatum to a five-year extension worth $163 million, which would have bumped up $195.6 million had he earned an All-NBA spot this season.
“I know I should have made it, just, I guess, with the season I had,” he said to Nevel.
