Jayson Tatum gets trolled heavily over new haircut

Boston Celtics small forward Jayson Tatum got a new haircut.

But instead of getting compliments, the Celtics All-Star got trolled on Twitter. Being a good sport, Tatum isn’t upset and joined in on the fun as well.

Tatum has the right attitude here. After all, if you can’t laugh at yourself sometimes, you are taking life way too seriously.

Tatum and the Celtics will be among the 22 teams partaking in the “bubble” games down in Orlando, Florida. Boston has already clinched a spot in the 2020 playoffs.

The Celtics’ seeding games will have them face the Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers, Miami Heat, Brooklyn Nets, Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, Memphis Grizzlies, and Washington Wizards.

Before the 2019-20 season was suspended in March, Tatum was averaging 23.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists for the Celtics in 59 games. The 22-year-old St. Louis native, who has established himself as one of the best young scorers in the NBA, was also shooting 44.8 percent from the field, 39.8 percent from beyond the arc, and 80.6 percent from the free-throw line.

Once the 2020 offseason period begins, the Celtics are expected to sign Tatum to a max contract extension. The former Duke Blue Devil is eligible for a rookie-scale extension and all signs point toward the Celtics giving him the max.

Since getting drafted by Boston in 2017 with the third overall pick, Jayson Tatum has averaged 17.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 218 regular-season games.
