Watch: Jayson Tatum looks back at his ECF dunk on LeBron

If things keep going south at this speed for LeBron James, the impact of the dunk Jayson Tatum laid on James may not have the same gravity years from now as it did at the time.

But, as most of us who were watching the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals knew, yamming on the King was no small feat. In fact, it is much more likely to be remembered as the moment a burgeoning Boston Celtics warned LeBron the East was not long to be under his thumb, even if he did manage to steal the series in what might one day be seen as his swan song.

For a little more first-person accounting of how that play went down, and how Tatum feels a little less than a year removed from it, watch the video above. And try not to enjoy the schadenfreude too much - Boston still has plenty of work of its own to do.
