I believe the Celtics are 25-6 in 2022 (including playoffs) when they start:
Rob Williams
Al Horford
Jayson Tatum
Jaylen Brown
Marcus Smart
In 443 regular season minutes, that group was +24.6 points per 100 possessions. – 7:06 PM

“Do I think I was one of the top 15 players last year? One thousand percent. But, that’s behind me now. I made it this year and now we’re trying to win a championship.” – Jayson Tatum. Read more about JT and the Celtics on fullcourtpress.bulletin.com.

Jayson Tatum on the Texas shooting: “In the times we are living in, school isn’t safe & that’s (scary) to think about. That was heavy on my mind last night…I’m sure for anyone with children, you want to hug them tighter & tell them you love them, because anything can happen.” – 12:28 PM

We talk about Joel Embiid taking ownership of the Sixers and using his equity to force change as he sees fit, but Bryce Harper absolutely needs to use his weight and demand change up top. – 11:23 PM

From NBA:
With the selection of Giannis Antetokounmpo (27 years old), Luka Dončić (23), Nikola Jokić (27), Devin Booker (25) and Jayson Tatum (24), the Kia All-NBA First Team is made up entirely of players age 27 or younger for the first time in 67 years (1954-55 season). – 8:50 PM

Jimmy Butler finished seventh among forwards in voting for All-NBA (six total make the three teams). Behind: Antetokounmpo, Tatum, Durant, DeRozan, James and Siakam. No Heat guards received votes. – 8:45 PM
Mike Bresnahan @Mike_Bresnahan
LeBron gets the nod for third-team All-NBA. He’s now been on 18 All-NBA teams, extending a record he already holds.
1st team: Giannis, Jokic, Tatum, Doncic + Booker.
2nd team: Embiid, Morant, Durant, Curry + DeRozan.
3rd team: LeBron, Trae Young, Siakam, Chris Paul, Towns. – 8:44 PM

Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
So based on the math here, it appears Embiid got 12 first-team votes at center, plus an additional 45 as a forward, unless I’m missing something. So there was definitely an attempt to get him on First Team. So, he got more points than Tatum (last forward in) but less as a forward pic.twitter.com/Afzlre6jd88:37 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
A year after Jayson Tatum didn’t make any of the All-NBA teams, and it cost him tens millions of dollars, Tatum was First, Second or Third team on all 100 ballots. – 8:36 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
First Team and Second Team All-NBA voting.
Embiid got more total points that Tatum, but Embiid must have gotten more votes at C than F, while Tatum got his votes as a Forward. So Embiid is classified as a C and moves to 2nd team. pic.twitter.com/EM4OcqYU3q8:35 PM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
No real surprises for All-NBA teams. Joker had 88 first team votes and 12 second team votes, assumably as the second team center behind Joel Embiid.
I wonder how many first team forward votes Embiid and Joker each received. – 8:33 PM

More on this storyline

Jay King: Jayson Tatum said he “kind of felt disrespected” when he didn’t make an all-NBA team last season. “Do I think I was one of the best 15 players last year? A thousand percent.” -via Twitter @ByJayKing / May 25, 2022
With the selection of Antetokounmpo (27 years old), Dončić (23), Jokić (27), Booker (25) and Tatum (24), the Kia All-NBA First Team is made up entirely of players age 27 or younger for the first time in 67 years (1954-55 season). Dončić is the fourth player in NBA history to be named to the All-NBA First Team three or more times before turning 24, joining Tim Duncan, Kevin Durant and Max Zaslofsky. -via NBA.com / May 24, 2022
