Jayson Tatum has had a busy offseason getting ready for another competitive year with the Boston Celtics.

From individual workouts to sessions with NBA champion Paul Pierce, Tatum is locked in to lead the Celtics through the Eastern Conference and back to the NBA Finals.

The All-NBA forward was back in the weight room, per a team-provided video on Wednesday. Tatum squatted four plates and one smaller bit of weight on each side of a deadlift.

Former Celtic-turned-Dallas Maverick Grant Williams saw the video and took his chance to have some fun with his old teammate. Tatum and Williams jokingly bantered throughout their Celtics tenure that continued on.

“That’s it? Add more plates,” Williams joked in a social media comment at Tatum.

It’s safe to say that Tatum looks physically ready to lead the Celtics on another deep playoff run.
