Celtics’ Jayson Tatum trolls Al Horford with 10-year challenge
Circulating social media for the past week or so has been the 10-year challenge. It involves posting one picture of yourself 10 years ago and then one from this year. It’s sort of a “glow-up” post, but it’s more focused on the actual amount of years rather than the actual growth of the person
Jayson Tatum joked with Al Horford about the challenge, pointing out that Tatum 10 years ago was only 10 years old. Tatum is only a second-year player in the NBA and won’t turn 21 until the third of March. Tatum isn’t even old enough to drink:
Jayson Tatum to Al Horford on the 10-year challenge: “10 years ago you were still in the league. I was TEN.”

This season has been a bit of a struggle for the Boston Celtics. At first, their offense was completely at a stand-still. Other than what Kyrie Irving was creating on offense, the team didn’t have an identity. It has taken months for the team to jell together offensively. There’s so much firepower and depth on the roster that it has been difficult for Brad Stevens to corral his team in as one.
Tatum and Irving have been leading the way on offense all season long. Tatum is averaging 16.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists while shooting 45.1 from the field and 37.3 percent from beyond the arc. Irving has averaged 22.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 6.4 assists while shooting 48.9 percent from the field and 39.7 percent from beyond the arc. Without them, the Celtics’ offense would be in big trouble.
While the Celtics haven’t been as good as expected, they did just beat the mighty Toronto Raptors to move to 26-18 on the season, which is good for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. A date with the struggling Memphis Grizzlies is up next on Friday.
