Boston Celtics All-Star wing Jayson Tatum has openly expressed his desire to participate in the 3-point shootout.

The 21-year-old already took home the Skills Competition in 2019, but he failed to repeat the feat in 2020 and fell in the first round to Indiana Pacers big man Damontas Sabonis (Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo won the event.)

Tatum is amidst the most prolific 3-point shooting season of his young career with the Celtics. He’s jacking nearly seven triples per game (up from 3.9 last season) at a 38.2% clip. (If he participates, maybe he can even shoot his threes off the dribble.)

Even if Tatum wins the 3-point shootout eventually, don’t except him to complete the All-Star Saturday night trifecta. He provided some very self-aware reasoning (that LeBron might agree with) as to why fans probably won’t be seeing him in the Dunk Contest.

Jayson Tatum will make his All Star Game debut on Sunday. In his third season, the Celtics wing is making a leap. He has become one of the finest two-way players in the game, which was on full display in the last game before break — an impressive 39 point showing on Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers in a double-overtime win on Thursday.
