Mitchell...Tatum is on a team loaded with studs, 2 deep maybe everywhere. Utah has Mitchell basically. Neither is falling off tho, no concern over either

They should of never got Hayward, should of just kept developing the young guys because they are stars in the making and have a higher ceiling than Hayward would ever have

I think they decline because I expected better from them especially Jayson Tatum I thought he would be averaging 22 points a game because of the stats they put up last year

i wouldn’t say donovan mitchell is having a bad season or in “decline” i would say that he is forced to take a lot of shots because of who he plays with, not saying that his teammates aren’t good, but he is probably the best offensive player and he’s only in his second season. He is probably gonna take some bad shots and make a few mistakes.
And with tatum, the celtics are still integrating hayward into the game and still experiencing more injuries to other players on top of that. That team is still really good, but haven’t gotten better since last year while other teams have acclimated to the play style of this era. Individually, the celtics players are great but they’re still trying to gel togather

Both are in their second year. Teams have had an entire season to play against them. The scouting reports are in the jury is back. Both players are guilty of being able to single handedly determine the out come of ball games. So,dont wage how good they are now compared to last year. They are both monsters and will be fine. The worst thing that can happen to a first year young player is to become solid during the regular season and raise havoc in the play offs. Simply,because the word is out. The lid is blown off the cover. Grown men with wives and kids to feed are going to take them serious. That's it and that's all. Stephen A,knows exactly what Im saying.

Funny how people was saying Tatum is the best player on the Celtics after one playoffs and it’s no longer Kyrie team, that’s why a lot of people don’t know sports you can’t judge a guy so early in his career you need Atleast 2 seasons.

Tatum game is declining because of Kyrie Irving because he needs the ball . Irving takes 20 to 24 shots and makes 7 to 9 .. I will take out Kyrie out for 5 games and see hot Boston Celtics play

older people have to understand that this younger generation is built differently mentally. We had decent upbringing from our parent and they werent hard on us because how our grandparents treated our parents. Id never treat my child the way my mother treated me. so the Mental toughness isnt there as it used to be for older players. So change your expectations because our generations results are corellated directly with our mentality and clout

Stephen A & Max both made good points...the Celtics may actually have "too much"...Tatum got used to being the go to guy with Kyrie out & now that he's back (not so much Heyward) he's not being depended on as much & him being as young as he is, is trying to find his way so far this season...Mitchell is a volume shooter who doesn't have anyone else on his team who can really create for themselves...hence the bad shot selection & low shooting wasn't great last year, but this year he's having a much harder time getting open looks...both will be the case of the Celtics, sometimes less is more...Rozier is a little lost too not playing as many minutes...Celtics can overcome, not sure about the Jazz

What the nba needs is NO soft tryna go the easy way to victory type of players... players who stick to their organisation no matter what. As no one talks about him...lets take for eg aldridge. If he hadnt went to the spurs how good wud the trail blazers be right now.. Would anyone rate dirk as high as he is now of he had switched teams? Lebron shud hav stayed cavs...kd shud hav stayed thunder. Its coz the best players are soft making the league predictable even before the season even starts...FACTSSSSSS

ESPN is getting weaker and weaker! It is a team game so one person is not solely responsible for the outcome of a game. And we are only around 15 games in to this season. Get a fucking grip! If you can not find things to talk about for 2 hours a day First Take, then cut the show to 1 hour a day, or 3, 2 hour shows a week. FFS. Weak as, soft, marshmallow type shit y'all putting out. Yet i still clicked on the video so the joke is on me i guess. Never the less, get your shit together, god damn!

A sophomore slump is very common for nba star rookies because teams have the whole summer and next year to focus more on the player and expose weaknesses they will be fine tho they just have to adjust and will back to allstar level
