Jayson Tatum was viewed as one of the brightest young players in the NBA a couple of years ago.
Following the impressive 2022 NBA playoff run, Tatum has now become a true superstar in the league.
At 25 years old, Tatum already has a lot of postseason experience under his belt and remains a top candidate to win the MVP award in the 2023-24 season.
Despite his phenomenal success in the league, Tatum has never forgotten about his roots with the Duke Men’s Basketball team.
The Celtics star recently shared pictures of his workout at his college team’s facility via his official Twitter handle.

In the caption, Tatum called Duke his home.
Tatum may have played just a single season in college, but he impressed the NBA scouts with his talent.
He averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists over 29 games in a Duke jersey.
Tatum then declared for the 2017 NBA Draft.
Being one the top prospects in his class, Tatum was picked as the No. 3 overall pick by the Boston Celtics in the 2017 NBA Draft.
Since then, Tatum has only become better and is yet to miss the playoffs during his six-year career in the NBA.
Tatum’s biggest accomplishment was leading the Celtics to the 2022 NBA Finals.
Unfortunately, the Golden State Warriors proved to be too much for the inexperienced Celtics as the series was wrapped up in six games.
Can JT lead the Celtics back to the NBA Finals in the 2023-24 season?
It seems like a good prediction considering the Celtics have one of the best rosters in the NBA right now.
