Celtics Star Jayson Tatum Wishes He Could Shoot Like Stephen Curry

Jayson Tatum

Jayson Tatum is one of the brightest talents in the NBA. The two-time all-star has been in fine form this season. While Tatum is having a phenomenal season, the Celtics are ranked 6th with a 32-29 record in the Eastern Conference.

At 23 years of age, he still has a lot of room to develop. The forward has averaged 25.7 points and 7.4 rebounds this season. Despite being a forward, Tatum uses his shooting ability to get the lion’s share of his points.

The Celtics star participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit. A fan asked Tatum what skill he would like to add to his arsenal from another NBA player. Tatum responded that he would love to be able to shoot the ball like Golden State Warriors guard, Stephen Curry.

There is no debate that Steph Curry is the greatest shooter of all time. Modern-day NBA is shaped by three-point shooting. Teams are stacking their rosters with shooters, stretching defenses, and tearing conventional basketball concepts apart.

Can Jayson Tatum become one of the best three-point shooters ever?

Jayson Tatum will be crucial to Celtics championship hopes

With a career average of 39.6% and 38.3% this season from behind the arc, Jayson Tatum is one of the best three-point shooters in the league today.

He may end up being one of the best shooters in the game but he is no Steph Curry. Subsequently, Curry has set innumerable three-point records throughout his career. After setting the record for most three’s in a month, it does not look like he is going to stop anytime soon.

The last time Tatum and Curry shared the court, the fans were treated with one of the best games this season. While the Celtics did come out as winners, Curry shot 11 threes for his 47 points, whereas Tatum also put in his best performance of the season with 44 points, shooting 5 threes.

Curry is a special talent, who changed the game. He is far ahead of any other shooter in the NBA today. While Tatum probably can’t get to his level, aiming that high can only be good for his development.
