After abusing some kids at his hometown ProCamp in St. Louis, Jayson Tatum picked on a few ballers his own size and the results were pretty much the same.
Here’s the highlights from the 20-year-old Celtics star’s visit to the Patrick McCaw Pro-Am (yes, Patrick McCaw of the Golden State Warriors has a Pro-Am in St. Louis) on Saturday. Highlights from the visit include a few nice dunks (none as nice as his poster on King James during the NBA Playoffs) and step-back threes James Harden would approve of.
During his homecoming, the walking bucket also checked off a bullet on his bucket list by throwing out the first pitch during a Cardinals game.
“It went great,” Tatum said on TV. “It could have been better, but I wasn’t nervous. This has always been a dream of mine, to come out here and throw the first pitch, so I’m glad it was able to happen.”
