Jayson Tatum already is making NBA history just two games into the 2020-21 season, just not the type you necessarily want to see.
The Boston Celtics star has averaged 34.5 minutes played and 25 field goals attempted in both games. He has 50 points on 50 tries against the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets.
How is he doing from the line, you ask?
Well, we wouldn’t know, because the All-NBA forward has yet to take a single free throw attempt thus far. (Crazy, we know.)
According to Basketball Reference creator Justin Kubatko, Tatum is the first player in NBA history to start a season with two consecutive games with 20 or more points and no free throw attempts.
He’s only had three games like that in his career before this campaign.
Tatum can’t buy a trip to the charity stripe right now, but hopefully this changes soon.
