The Boston Celtics certainly have the best starting five in the NBA for the 2023-24 season.
While the roster features several elite players, Jayson Tatum is undoubtedly the nucleus of the group.
Over the years, Tatum has only added more milestones to his resume.
Tatum’s most recent achievement was crossing the 10,000-point mark in his NBA career.
Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla shared his reaction to the star player completing an important achievement in his career via Jared Weiss on Twitter.

Mazzulla praised Tatum’s dedication to the game of basketball and how he’s always available for the team.
The stats support Mazzulla’s comments, as Tatum has never played less than 64 games throughout his six-year-long NBA career.
Tatum reached the milestone at the age of 25, which doesn’t make him the youngest player ever to do so, but it’s still a great achievement.
In the 2023-24 season, Tatum is averaging 30.2 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game for the Celtics.
Thanks to Tatum’s great numbers, the Celtics are currently the number one seed in the Eastern Conference with a 5-0 record.
The Celtics are the only team that is currently undefeated this season.
