Jayson Tatum continues to add to his trophy case as the 2021-22 season progresses. His latest award came after the Boston Celtics Game 7 win over the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.

Following the game, the first-ever Larry Bird trophy was given out to the Eastern Conference finals MVP by former Celtic two-time NBA champion Cedric Maxwell.

Tatum won the award after averaging 25 points, 8.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. The hardware was given just days after it was announced that the 24-year-old forward was named to First-Team All-NBA.

Tatum received eight of nine total votes to win the Larry Bird trophy, with Jimmy Butler receiving a single vote.
