Scouting report
Last offseason, Banchero had some tough decisions to make as he was declaring for the 2022 NBA Draft. Once again, Tatum was there for him every step of the way. Looking back, Banchero says that Tatum was “the main guy” who helped him navigate the pre-draft process. “He’s helped me with a lot, mainly when I was coming into the league. Like during pre-draft, I asked him about signing with an agent, signing a shoe deal – and I ended up signing with Jordan Brand, where he’s at,” Banchero told Basketball News. “All of that stuff [you do] coming into the league is stuff that I ran by him and tried to get his opinion on, just because he was in a lot of these same positions that I’m in. I’ve definitely used him as a resource.
Tatum, who has referred to Banchero as his little brother in past interviews, believes it’s only right to pay it forward to the next generation. “I think that’s just our responsibility. Somebody helped me [when I was younger], and somebody helped the person that helped me,” Tatum told Basketball News. “[Paolo] is somebody that I was close to while he was in college. Amile Jefferson is one of my best friends and he’s an assistant coach at Duke, so all three of us kind of talked all the time while he was in college. “I’m a big fan of his; he loves the game and he works hard. And I know what it’s like to come from Duke and be a top lottery pick and have a lot of expectations, so anytime I can help, I feel like I’m obligated to do that.”

Daryl Morey on All-Star voting: The shameless Boston media is way overrepresented

During a Friday appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic’s Anthony Gargano Show, team president Daryl Morey focused his ire on one particular sect of voters. “Joel Embiid, completely hosed once again,” Morey said. “This time, the perpetrators of the crime were the shameless media, who, most of them have recused themselves because they don’t want to vote on something that affects players’ paychecks. But the shameless Boston media is way overrepresented. They haven’t recused themselves, and they shoved Joel low enough so that he isn’t an All-Star starter. It’s crazy.”
