Boston Celtics’ superstar Jayson Tatum is having yet another great season.
After coming short in the 2022 NBA Finals, Tatum vowed to keep getting better and he’s done that.
Following a terrific 2022-23 NBA season, where he led his team to the playoffs again, he achieved a big feat.
Besides becoming the first Boston Celtic to average 30 points per game in a season, Tatum has reached another feat.
First 30PPG season in Celtics history!!
Keep making history @jaytatum0

He finishes this season averaging 30.1 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists per outing in 74 games.
The Celtics went from nothing to something, starting this season amid huge controversy.
Over time, they turned things around, led by Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
The forward keeps making history for this team, as he tries to lead them to the promised land.
Added to these records, he also posted 18 30/10 games during the season.
The Celtics finish the 2022-23 NBA season as the 2nd best team in the Eastern Conference.
They know they have a big chance to return to the Finals and get what the Golden State Warriors got from them last season.
Tatum knows he must do a lot better this campaign to avoid all the criticism he received last season.
As things stand right now, only the Milwaukee Bucks can give the Celtics trouble, but anything can happen now.
The playoffs are the biggest platform for superstars and Tatum is well aware of that.
If he wants to cement his status as a Celtic great, he needs to get that championship this season.
