Jayson Tatum’s first TikTok shows he shouldn’t quit his day job

Celtics, Jayson Tatum

Several players around the NBA landscape are coming up with creative ways to utilize their down time in light of the league’s coronavirus suspension. For Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum, it’s TikTok — more specifically, his first TikTok.

With his camera rolling, Tatum danced to “Get Loose” by Kblast & Huncha Da Rocksta — a song that has become a popular choice for TikTok videos. In fact, Bronny James and Chance The Rapper have already released similar clips.

Tatum showed some nice moves in his first TikTok clip, but it’s probably safe to say that he should stick to his day job. Though, it’s not clear at this point when he and his teammates might be able to resume play.

Prior to the NBA’s decision to suspend this season, Tatum and the Celtics were on their way to a top spot in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. At 43-21 overall, the boys from Beantown are currently holding the No. 3 seed in the East — 9.5 games back from the 1st-ranked Milwaukee Bucks.

Tatum, now in his third season of NBA service, was playing well before the coronavirus suspension. In fact, the former No. 3 overall pick is posting career-highs across the board.

In 59 appearances with the Celtics this season, Jayson Tatum has racked up averages of 23.6 points on 44.8 percent shooting from the field (39.8 percent from beyond the arc), 7.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.4 steals in 34.6 minutes per outing.
