Congrats Jayson Tatum NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Month (and Happy Birthday!)
Don't want to call it a birthday gift, since Tatum definitely earned it himself. Congrats Jayson on the first of what we expect to be many Player of the Month awards. And happy 22nd birthday!

This breaks Giannis' streak of five consecutive Eastern Conference Player of the Month awards dating back through last February.https://t.co/qKcwCJKM3t— Taylor Snow (@taylorcsnow) March 3, 2020
Pretty crazy how dominant Giannis has been. Wasn't aware he had won so many in a row. It's been more than three years since the Celtics had a Player of the Month winner. Isaiah Thomas won it last for the green back in January 2017. LeBron James to home the Player of the Month honors out west.
