It’s been three weeks since Stephen Curry beat the Celtics and won the 2022 NBA Finals, and fans are still not letting Jayson Tatum forget it.
The Boston Celtics had a great season. Despite 11th placeth in one place Jayson Tatum and Co. managed to end the regular season as 2nd best team in the east. Ime Udoka’s boys defeated Durant’s Nets, Giannis’ Bucks and Jimmy Butler’s Heat in the playoffs but ultimately fell to the Stephen Curry-led Golden State Warriors.
Chef Curry had one of the best endgame performances of all time. The 6-foot-3 sniper played against the best defensive team in the playoffs and went scoring. The baby-faced assassin averaged an excellent 31.2 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals over the 6 games and shot the ball with a highly efficient 48.2/43.7/85.7 split.
“He’s one of the greatest players this league has ever seen.”

During the Celtics Warriors series, Steph broke numerous records playing with the inexperienced Cs squad. No doubt some Boston players may still get nightmares of Curry forcing their defense to collapse.
And when players get over it, fans will make sure they never forget.
NBA Twitter reacts as fan trolls Jayson Tatum and calls Stephen Curry his ‘daddy’
Jayson Tatum had a good time which looked like a 4th the July celebration until a fan decided to address the traumatic experience JT faced while having to guard Steph.
A fan hilariously showed the former Duke Blue Devil his phone that read “Steph Curry is your daddy”. All Jayson Tatum could do was smile and nod.
As soon as this clip went viral on social media, NBA Twitter exploded with reactions.
And Tatum is like: yes 🌝😂

To be honest, Tatum had put on a pretty solid performance in his first appearance in the finals. The 24-year-old averaged a staggering 21.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, 7 assists and 1.2 blocks per game.
With the Cs already making some notable additions to their roster, we know for sure that JT and co have a high chance of repeating last season’s success or even bettering it by winning the 2023 championship.
