Jayson Tatum has been a star for the Boston Celtics ever since he has stepped foot in the league. Having led the team on the scoring board season after season, the 23-years-old failed to make it into the All-NBA team of the 2020-21 season. As a result of which, he lost a whopping $32.6 million in bonuses from his current contract. Probably a sum more than which most of us could ear in a lifetime. 

That being said after this loss, Jayson Tatum blames the NBA anomaly. To be precise, the Celtics star was more upset with how the All-NBA team gets voted. Ina recent appearance at JJ Redick’s The Old Man and The Three podcast, Tatum got absolutely honest upon how he believes the voting system is completely honest.

On one hand, where any individual would be super angry after losing such a massive amount, it has to be said that Jayson Tatum was relatively at ease. And pretty much handled the situation with utmost calm. 

“There’s no criteria set for the voters on who they should vote for,” Tatum said. “It’s all opinion-based. It’s all like, ‘Well, you know, I like this guy a little bit more.’” 

The Boston Celtics marquee player then went on to share how this issue really got to him last year. Tatum is not the type to let the outside noise affect him and what he does on the basketball court, but there was one particular instance last season that had him questioning everything.

“The only time I let it affect me, I remember last year when I was in the playoffs—or the playoffs might’ve been over—and everybody was coming out with their All-NBA ballots and podcasts and who they were voting for. I had $30 million on the line to make it. I specifically remember one person saying, “I’m not a fan of his shot selection, so I just couldn’t put him on my All-NBA ballot.’ And I was baffled.” 

He concluded, “You can’t really blame this unnamed individual for voting the way he did. After all, it’s his own choice.”
