Tatum wins conference player of the week, but could not win a victory cigar on this forum.

Another poster pointed it out, it’s just everyone expects him to be elite, so him putting up great games is just what he’s supposed to be doing. Dude is averaging 27/7/4 on the best efficiency of his career despite facing never ending traps and defenses collapsing on him, has the lowest turnover percentage of his career, and has carried the bench lineup to a monster net rating.

To say he makes this team go is an understatement.

I’m pretty sure there is a thread or three on this over on the general board.

Dude is averaging 27/7/4 on the best efficiency since his rookie year, has the lowest turnover percentage of his career, and has carried the bench lineup to a monster net rating.

To say he makes this team go is an understatement.

Not to mention Brad Stevens holding him back. With another coach, he'd average 40/12/10 for sure on 70% TS% with zero losses.

Also, Tatum has 2 VC's and 3 Consolation Prizes.
He really does make the team Go.

Want to know what is super exciting about it all.

A: 26.9-ppg, 7.1-rpg, 3.8-apg, 1-spg, 0.8-bpg, 2.7-to, .474%-fg, .438-3fg%, .496-efg%, .588-TS%
B: 26.3-ppg, 6.2-rpg, 3.5-apg, 1.7-spg, 0.7-bpg, 2.9-tov, .539%-fg, .421-3fg%, .590-efg%, .626-TS%


And they are our duo of Tatum and Brown

Brown was in the running for Player of the Week, the week before.
It will be interesting to see who gets Player of the Month.

Doncic is a fair bit overrated a this point. I like the kid, but he's shooting .450 from the field, .230 from 3, averages about 5 TOs and can't play a lick of defense.

Anyways, I'll continue saying Tatum >>>> Doncic, yea I said it.
Good assessment:

This makes Tatum the first player since LeBron to earn two conference player of the week awards before turning 20.

wow, I thought I was alone with this.

I still feel Tatum has a ton more ceiling to grow, while baby boy Doncic is much closer to his ceiling.

3rd post in... expected better from you. It must be that Tatum is slipping as your favourite and Brown is overtaking.

It is somewhat funny; Tatum seems unstoppable one week, so Covid be like "well, guess I'll just stop you (well, whole team really) from playing next week". :P
