The NBA on Tuesday announced its reserves for the 2021 All-Star Game, revealing the full pools of players from the Eastern and Western Conferences.

And for the Boston Celtics, star wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both will represent the team in Atlanta on March 7.

Brown received the first All-Star selection of his career amid his best season yet, while Tatum earns the nod for the second time.

According to Celtics Stats, at 22-years and 357-days-old, Tatum now is the youngest player in franchise history to receive multiple All-Star honors.

Additionally, Tatum and Brown are second only to Bob Cousy and Ed Macauley (1953) as the only Celtics under the age of 25 to earn the honors in the same year.

We have a feeling the best is yet to come.
