Jayson Tatum is in awe of his new life coach.
NBA legend Kobe Bryant offered the Boston Celtics forward advice on improving his game Friday on ESPN’s “Details,” according to NBC Sports Boston. Bryant analyzed Game 2 of the Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Eastern Conference finals series in the episode, during which he instructed Tatum toÂ model one movement after former Detroit Pistons guard Richard Hamilton.
Upon receiving Bryant’s advice, Tatum responded via Twitter:
Tatum, 20, has shone in the NBA playoffs by setting a Celtics rookie record by scoring 20-plus points in seven consecutive games.Â The Cavs must be hoping Bryant’s advice won’t make Tatum even more effective.
