Jayson Tatum laments the demise of 2018-19 Celtics, says they were ‘most talented team in the NBA’

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

For me, the portion of the interview that stood out the most came at the 25:30 mark, where Redick asked Tatum about what went wrong with the 2018-19 Celtics, whom Tatum, earlier in the interview, called “The most talented team in the NBA” that season.

But Tatum admitted to his share of the blame, detailing all the necessary context to fully understand the unraveling, starting with the fact that Tatum and Brown had led the Celtics to Game 7 of the conference finals the previous season with Irving and Hayward out injured.

Had the Celtics played up to the peak of their potential, Tatum has every right to believe they would’ve won the Eastern Conference and faced an injured Warriors team in the Finals. Tatum surely wasn’t the only one to blame for that Celtics teams falling apart, but he didn’t point any fingers.
