The Boston Celtics have built their team around Jayson Tatum.
His future with the team has never been put into question.
And fortunately for the fans, he’s not looking to leave TD Garden any time soon, either.
Following his historic performance in Game 7, the former No. 3 pick raved about how much he loves it there and how much love he feels from the fans, whether it’s before, during, or after the games.

Tatum has already entered the Celtics’ history books despite not being in the league for long.
It didn’t take long before he took a step forward as the leader of the team, proving that he could be a generational scorer and one of the greatest players in their historied franchise.
However, as great as he’s been for the most part — especially in the regular season — some have often questioned his character and determination when the game and the season are on the line.
Tatum’s inconsistency is the only thing holding him back from achieving superstar status in the league.
Even so, he’s just 25 years old, so he has at least a decade of basketball ahead of him, so he still has plenty of time to keep growing and becoming mentally stronger to be at his best when it matters the most.
Whatever the case, it seems like he’s going to be a Celtic until the very end of his career.NEXT: Shannon Sharpe Reacts to Celtics Game 7 Win Over 76ers
