Raptors fans, however, should be well-aware that their basketball staff members Phil Handy (who posted the photo), John Corbacio and Jeremy Castleberry attended both workouts with Leonard. Also, Handy, a new Raptors assistant coach, previously worked with Bryant with the Lakers and James and Osman with the Cavaliers. Spurs assistant coach Chip Engelland also once helped Leonard improve his shooting form by using examples of Bryant, who has also worked out with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jayson Tatum, Kyle Kuzma and Candace Parker this offseason.
Well, fellow Duke basketball alumni and Hall of Famer Grant Hill thinks the young star is on track to end up where Hill will be enshrined Friday — the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. “I think he’s on his way,” Hill told MassLive’s Tom Westerholm. “… He’s in a great situation, which is really good. In some ways you could say it’s a blessing and a curse. Because (the Celtics) are so talented, he doesn’t have to do as much, which is great for a young player, and they have a chance to win a championship, and have a lot of runway for the next five, six, eight years. But also it doesn’t really allow us to see the full package. I think we did see that last year when injuries hit that team, and now it was like they needed him to show and prove, and he did. And he was just a rookie. 19 years old. I think time. Time is what he needs, and I can’t wait to watch and see what he ultimately becomes. It’s scary.”
There’s a notion that you and Gordon (Hayward), Kyrie (Irving), Jaylen (Brown) and Terry (Rozier) may struggle to share the ball this year. What’s your response to that thought by some people? Jayson Tatum: We’re all professionals. We’re gonna find a way to make it work. At the end of the day, we all want to win, so everybody has to sacrifice when you want to be a part of something special. It’s not gonna be any different for us.
Among the pairs that Tatum debuted were the extremely limited “Wheaties” colorway, “Green Lobster” inspired by Concepts’ 2009 SB Dunk Low collaboration, and the “Power Is Female” pair he laced up for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. “Me and Kyrie are really close. We’ve been close for awhile. We have the same agent. Since he was out and we were on the same team, there was no better person to debut the shoes and carry it on since, unfortunately, he was injured,” Tatum told Sole Collector. “[Kyrie] would have worn them during the playoffs, but he couldn’t play. It was kind of cool that he let me wear them.”
