Rudy Gay also didn't have multiple All-Star caliber running mates or a top 3 coach. His team won 22 games in 07-08 and 24 games in 08-09. Gay was the #1 option offensively.
So, having all star running mates makes you an all star, or not having them prevents you? You're also blowing your own argument with your own words. Saying Gay was a number one option and the fact he couldn't generate more PPG and make even one all star teams speaks volumes.
Again, I said Tatum is better than Gay. I said that Tatum's ceiling is the Jimmy Butler/Paul George type, you can quote me from October in this very thread stating that. So far, Tatum has not proven he is even on the Butler/PG13 level
Obviously having a better team makes it easier on you, don't be stupid.
Their advanced stats aren't even remotely close those, Tatum is like 5th in the league in rpm, +-, etc..... The "better team/teammates" arguement is also kind of weak too. He's a big part why their team is good and he also makes his teammates better(which stats prove).
