The Boston Celtics have one of the strongest rosters in the NBA for the 2023-24 season.
They have a starting five of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kristaps Porzingis, Jrue Holiday, and Derrick White.
While all five players are great, Tatum is undoubtedly the most talented player on the Celtics.
Tatum possesses a knack for scoring the basketball at will, which makes him a nightmare for opposing team defenders.
Speaking of Tatum, Jrue Holiday heaped huge praise on his teammate’s scoring ability via Jared Weiss on Twitter.
“I’m glad he’s on our side. I’m glad he’s on my team. A scorer like him makes it look so easy,” Holiday said of Tatum.

Holiday was traded to the Boston Celtics earlier this offseason.
The veteran star’s addition to the team makes them an elite defensive unit.
But when it comes to scoring, Jayson Tatum is undoubtedly a master of putting the ball through the basket.
Keeping that in mind, Jrue Holiday is thankful to share the court with Tatum as a teammate rather than defending him.
As for Tatum, he’s averaging 30.2 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game for the Celtics so far this season.
Considering his shooting averages of 55.0% from the field and 45.2% from downtown, Tatum is undoubtedly one of the most efficient scorers in the league.
As a result, the Celtics currently flaunt a perfect 5-0 start to the season.
They are the only team in the entire league that hasn’t lost even a single game during the 2023-24 season.
The Celtics currently sit comfortably as the top seed in the Eastern Conference.
