LOL At Jayson Tatum’s Nickname For Celtics Rookie Payton Pritchard

B-Rabbit would be proud


Are Payton Pritchard’s palms sweaty? Are his knees weak? Might his arms be heavy?

Is that… vomit on his sweater? Already?


The Celtics youngster looked anything but nervous Tuesday night in Indiana. Rather, Pritchard looked calm and ready in Boston’s win over the Pacers, scoring 10 points — despite dropping no bombs — as he kept on forgetting to look like a rookie in his 27 minutes.

There was no crowd to go so loud at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, but Pritchard still was able to relish in what fans, media and even his teammates wrote down after the game.

Will Pritchard snap back to reality when the Celtics host the Grizzlies, or will he continue to lose himself and stay hot?

We’ll find out Wednesday night when Boston and Memphis square off at a venue infinitely nicer than Salem’s Lot.
