So far this season, the star player hasn’t had a single game when he’s scored less than double-digits.
And his current average is 31.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 4.5 assists, which clearly has him alongside Luka Doncic as a frontrunner for MVP this season.
Oh, and his Celtics are the best team in the East and have a great chance of making the Finals again.
The youngest player in NBA history to hit 900 threes 👌

Tatum was good for 49 points and 11 rebounds on Wednesday night, deftly putting the Miami Heat away.
Tatum was 8-of-12 from the three-point line, which was a huge accomplishment.
It’s even more impressive when you learn that Tatum is now the youngest player in NBA history to hit 900 three-pointers.
The Celtics are on a winning streak, Tatum isn’t slowing down, and the future is looking very bright for both.
Tatum’s Towering Achievement
Tatum was great last year and the Celtics wouldn’t have made the Finals without him.
But he’s doing even better in 2022-23, surpassing last season’s 26.9 points, 8 rebounds, and 4.4 assists.
Tatum was obviously very busy during the summer, and not satisfied with his performance in the Finals.
He spent a lot of time working on his physicality and his game-playing skills, intent on being an even better athlete on both ends of the court.
He has burst into the new season like a rocket and has been dominating again and again.
But his 49 points on Wednesday was a season high, surpassing his 43 from earlier in the month.
What’s next for Tatum and how long can he keep his amazing season going strong?
Don’t be shocked if he is still performing like this around April.
If that’s the case, his chances of winning MVP will be incredibly high.NEXT: The Celtics Stay Committed To A Beloved Big Man
