Video: Is Jayson Tatum already an NBA superstar?

Personally I'd argue that Jayson Tatum is already an NBA "superstar," based on all his 50 point games and performance so far. If you have a stricter definition of superstar where you require a player to have All-NBA 1st or 2nd team selections under their belt and more team success as the unquestioned star of your team, I can understand how you don't have him listed as a superstar right now.

Maybe your list is just LeBron, Curry, Giannis, and Durant for all I know, so it's open to interpretation. One thing I do know is that we need Tatum to make the jump to the "Practically everyone says he's a superstar" level for the Celtics to compete for a title.

With the lone exception of the 2004 Detroit Pistons that defeated the feuding, dysfunctional Kobe/Shaq Lakers that season, you need a bonafide superstar to win a title. Doesn't guarantee one, but it's pretty much a requirement.

So what say you? Is Tatum already an NBA superstar, and if not, what does he need to do this season to get to that level in your eyes?
