Mia Khalifa shows support for Jayson Tatum
Tatum has had an impressive year, but it makes one wonder if maybe there is a little more going on behind the scenes, especially since Khalifa is complimenting a player on a rival team.
Tatum was named on Wednesday to the All-NBA Rookie First Team, but he wasn’t a unanimous selection like Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell because one voter left him off the ballot. When Brad Stevens found out the results, he wasn’t all too pleased.
“Somebody made a mistake,” Said Stevens via the Boston Globe.
The last Celtics rookie to be named to the All-Rookie team first team was Paul Pierce in the 1998-98 season. There has been some chatter if Tatum is going to be the next Pierce for the Celtics, so it’s only fitting that he was only the last one to be named on the list.
Tatum played in 80 games, averaging 13.9 points, and 5.0 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game. He shot 47.5 percent from the floor during the regular season. One of the big surprises for Tatum is how well he has been able to shoot the ball from deep, something he really struggled at during his days with the Duke Blue Devils. Maybe the next shot that Tatum needs to take is to try and get with Khalifa, as it seems she may be interested.
