Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics wowed the crowd at the All-Star Game and scored a historic 55 points.
That helped carry his Team Giannis to a huge win over Team LeBron, 184-175.
But it also led Tatum to win his first All-Star MVP trophy.
According to recent NBA history, that triumphant achievement might lead to an even bigger victory in the next few months.
Will Jayson Tatum and the Celtics continue this recent trend?

As noted by ESPN, the 2021 All-Star MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo, wound up winning the Finals and Finals MVP just a few months later.
Additionally, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors did the same thing last season: winning the 2022 All-Star MVP and then the Finals MVP in June.
Does that mean that Tatum, who has a strong chance at returning to the championship this summer, is about to win the Finals and the coveted Finals MVP award?
Anyone paying attention to the NBA right now thinks there is a good chance of that happening.
The Celtics have had a stellar season so far and are the top team in the East right now with an impressive 41-17 record.
Tatum has been at the center of that great success.
His amazing game on Sunday wasn’t the first time that Tatum posted a lot of points and led his team.
He is putting up 30.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists on 46.4% from the floor.
As noted by many, he has become the best player on the best team in the league.
During last year’s Finals, Tatum was front-and-center during the entire championship run and was the most important part of his squad.
So there is a very good chance he would do the same thing this year.
And if that resulted in success, it could also lead to him winning one of the biggest trophies in the league.NEXT: Former Player Explains What The All-Star Game Meant For Celtics
