How Jayson Tatum Feels Being Left Off Charles Barkley, Shaq’s All-Star Teams

'Naw, I didn’t see that'


February 19, 2021

Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal left Jayson Tatum off their respective NBA All-Star Game selections, which was a bit surprising.

Sure, the duo don’t get actual votes, but it still was a shock to see the Boston Celtics forward left off the list.

Tatum has been a stud for the Celtics this season, despite his battle with COVID-19. But Tatum wasn’t even aware of being left off the list, and doesn’t seem to mind all that much.

“Naw, I didn?t see that. I mean, I?m sure there?s some people last year that didn?t have me on there with who they thought they should have made it,” Tatum told reporters after Boston’s 121-109 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

“But I mean everyone has their own respective opinion. I mean, I didn?t see it. Everybody has their opinion on who they think should make it, there?s a lot of guys who deserve to make it. We?ll see.”

We’ll see indeed.

Tatum wasn’t named a starter, but still has a chance to be named as a reserve player.
