Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green agrees with Jayson Tatum's latest take: the Boston Celtics star could really win MVP in 2022-23.

As reported recently, Tatum apparently had a rather lighthearted conversation with Joel Embiid in which he said the Philadelphia 76ers big man should better win the MVP award this 2021-22. Why you ask? Well, the Celtics youngster is confident he will be running away with the honor next season.

“Let me in part a quick story about how much it means for Jayson Tatum to be MVP. I was speaking to Drew Hanlen, Tatum’s longtime trainer, the other day. He said he was with Joel Embiid when Tatum called him and before they got off the call Tatum said to Embiid, ‘You better win the MVP this year because I’m gonna get it next year,'” NBA insider Chris Mannix said, via NESN.

Now in his latest appearance on The Draymond Green Show, Jayson Tatum received big support from the Warriors' defensive guru. Green sees the Celtics leader winning the MVP honor, especially if he maintains and improves the level of play he is currently at.

“You should be the MVP of the NBA next year,” the Warriors star said, per The Volume.

Tatum has never been short in confidence, and his recent remarks certainly prove that. In fact, he recently shared his belief that he would have locked the highest individual honor this season had he not started slowly for Boston. If he played like he's doing now at the start of the season, chances are he's in the top of the conversation.

Of course that is something easier said than done. After all, it's not only Joel Embiid he has to think about, with several young players also showing up and leading their respective teams. The likes of Luka Doncic, Ja Morant and Devin Booker could well be MVP contenders next season.

Not to mention that there are still the other favorites like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic.

If there is one thing going right for Tatum and his MVP candidacy, though, the Celtics are piling up wins with his game getting elevated as well.

It remains to be seen if Tatum can actually win it, but one thing's for sure: he is ready to show everyone why he is one of the best players in the NBA today.
