Fox Sports analyst Nick Wright did not decline to comment when discussing Jayson Tatum’s poor performance in Game 3 of Saturday’s NBA Eastern Conference finals. The Miami Heat won 109-103 against the Boston Celtics.
Tatum scored 10 points, six rebounds and four assists while making six turns. He fired a small shot 3 out of 14 from the floor, including one out of 7 from a 3-point range.
The 3-time NBA All-Star, on the other hand, has had a solid run, as he averaged 28.2 points per game with 45% shooting ahead of Saturday’s game against the Heat.
Wright called Tatum for his inconsistent performance, tweet:
“Jayson Tatum substituted from trying to grab Gianni’s DJ privileges at #ClubSuperstar and was more outright disqualified than any other player in the tournament. Seems like a consensual Top 5 guy or just invincible. figure, not in the middle.”
Wright posted a ‘Club Superstar’ gimmick and listed players of this type in the NBA. The likes of LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo have cemented their place in his club.
However, there is another category of stars who regularly enter and exit the club. Wright included Jayson Tatum in that quote.
Tatum played as a top-year player in the NBA while he was in the region. However, he has struggled to make in-game adjustments whenever he has nights off.
