The romance between LeBron James and Jayson Tatum

Antagonism between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics dates back to 1948. Jayson Tatum and LeBron James are carrying on the long-lived rivalry as the franchise’s faces change.

On multiple occasions, Tatum has praised James for his performance and the value he adds to the team. In real life, aside from basketball, the two are great friends. As a child, Tatum admired James.

As terrific as he is, Tatum once stated, “He probably doesn’t get enough credit” (via Lakers Nation). But I have a close relationship with him and we’re really close. I’m grateful for the opportunity to play against a legend of the game. Going after someone is how you demonstrate respect. “That’s the way it’s done.”
