Amid the trade rumors surrounding Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum stressed just how important team chemistry is to a team’s success.
Celtics star forward Jayson Tatum has found himself asked directly and indirectly about such a deal, and has been cautious of late with his words. But asked by a reporter at his annual pro camp how hard it was to find and keep the kind of chemistry that helped Boston get to within two wins of an NBA title, Tatum did not mince words.
“Chemistry is half the battle. You can have a great team with great talent, and not necessarily jell well together,” suggested the Duke product via NBC Sports Boston. “The guys … we figured it out in January, and never looked back.”
Tatum is saying all of the right things. If no trade is done making sure that Brown knows just how much he means to this team is important.
