On defense yeah but Kemba's numbers are down on offense cause he's surrounded by better players.
One would think Rudy Gay as the #1 option could at least put up more PPG than Tatum jeesh.
Tatum is taking more shots than Gay, so now you really look stupid.
Actually I think saying Tatum compares to Gay is pretty f'n stupid - considering their playing styles aren't even close and on the defensive side of the ball it's not even a comparison.
You said that Gay should be scoring more because he was the #1 option. I'm saying that Gay drew the opposing teams best defender because he was the best offensive option the team had. Tatum does not consistently draw the best defender because the Celtics have a lot more offensive weapons. This isn't that hard to understand nor is it a stretch that the Celtics are more talented as a 50+ win team than a 20 win team. Tatum is getting more shots per game, you thought that Gay was getting more shots per game but he wasn't. 20.1 points per game on 16.7 shots per game. 22.4 points per game on 18.3 shots per game. That means that per shot Gay averaged 1.2 points while Tatum per shot averages 1.2 points. LMAO
