Jayson Tatum made sure to let the kids at a local basketball camp near Boston know that he wasn’t going easy on them.
On Saturday, the Celtics star helped out at a camp in Foxborough and went up against some brave kids. In one video, the 24-year-old was defending a young player and gave him a few chances to shoot the ball. However, after a while, Tatum began blocking the shots. At the end of the countdown, he even took the ball and made a layup of his own.
The same kid tried his best to block the 6’8” superstar, but had no luck.
