BOSTON — The Boston Celtics are sending multiple representatives to Chicago next month.
It was a much-deserved honor for the third-year forward, who is averaging 21.5 points, 6.9 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game.
Enes Kanter was with Tatum when he found out, and it was a pretty cool moment.

?Definitely it is an honor,” Tatum said in a statement through the team. “I am extremely blessed and grateful. Third year to make the All-Star team it is a surreal feeling. I?m just very excited and it is a dream come true.?
The NBA All-Star Game will be played Feb. 16 at United Center.
