The annual NCAA tournament, known as March Madness, is underway and as always, it has been full of surprises. The tournament, which brings together the best college basketball teams from across the United States, is a breeding ground for some of the NBA’s most talented players.
This year, Duke University, one of the most prestigious basketball programs in college basketball, was a favorite to make it to the final rounds of the tournament. However, their hopes were dashed as they were knocked out in spectacular fashion by the University of Tennessee.
As Jayson Tatum watched the game closely, one of his teammates, Grant Williams, took great pleasure in taunting him. Tatum, a star player for the Boston Celtics and an alumnus of Duke’s basketball team, was no doubt disappointed by Duke’s early exit from the tournament.
Meanwhile, Williams seemed to be enjoying the moment as his own college basketball team, Tennessee and took the opportunity to tease Tatum about it.
Here are some of the best reactions from fans regarding Jayson’s reaction.
As the two teams were leaving the arena, Williams was heard shouting “F**k Duke!” in Tatum’s direction. The two players, who have a friendly relationship, were clearly enjoying the banter.
While Duke may have been knocked out of the tournament, Tatum’s attention has quickly turned back to the NBA. In a game against the Utah Jazz, he became the first player this season to cross the 2000 points mark, cementing his status as one of the league’s top players.
Tatum’s achievement of being the first player to cross the 2000 points mark this season is a testament to his skill and dedication as a basketball player. It is a milestone that few players reach, and he is only the fourth player in Celtics history to have multiple 2000-point seasons.
Tatum’s success on the court this season has been a bright spot for the Celtics, who have had an up-and-down season so far. The team has struggled with injuries and inconsistency, but Tatum has been a consistent force, averaging over 30 points per game. He has emerged as a leader on the team and is widely regarded as one of the best young players in the league.
Tatum’s success this season has not gone unnoticed. He was selected to play in the NBA All-Star game for the second year in a row and has been the subject of trade rumors as other teams look to acquire his talent. However, the Celtics have made it clear that Tatum is a vital part of their future and have no intention of letting him go.
As the NBA season enters its final stretch, Tatum’s success will be crucial for the Celtics as they look to make it to the NBA final. His ability to score at will and lead the team in clutch situations will be invaluable.
