Let's first look at the guy making his 4th consecutive All-Star appearance, Jayson Tatum. JT has been on an absolute tear this season, averaging a career high in points, rebounds, and assists. The 24 year old Tatum continues to take huge steps forward every season and is looking to become the first Celtic to ever average 30 PPG in a season, sitting at 30.6 PPG as we pause action for the week. The most impressive thing about Jayson is that he never seems to be comfortable with good enough, every season he comes back showing vast improvements in his game. With a player of Tatum's caliber having that sort of mindset, the future is bright with JT in a Celtics uniform.
Most Points this season:— Hoop Muse (@HoopMuse) February 16, 2023
1,685 — Jayson Tatum

1,494 — Giannis Antetokounmpo
1,489 — Joel Embiid
Making his 2nd All-Star appearance in the last 3 seasons, is Jaylen Brown. The 26 year old Brown is also having a career year. Averaging a career high in points, rebounds, and field goal percentage, Jaylen is just entering into his prime. At 26.5 PPG, 7.0 REB, and shooting a super efficient 48.7% from the floor, JB has added even more fire to the Celtics deadly 1-2 punch. Getting some extra rest before the All-Star break as a result of an unfortunate injury against Philadelphia, look for Jaylen to come out of the break looking fresh and ready to play his best ball entering the most important time of the season.
