Jayson Tatum put in his best ever performance as an NBA player in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals against the Milwaukee Bucks to bring back memories of one of the greatest basketball players of all-time, Kobe Bryant.
The Boston Celtics star confessed on numerous occasions that Kobe was his idol and the fact that they look more and more like each other on the court has raised comparisons.
That’s fair, because scoring 46 points at the champion’s home court to force a seventh game in the NBA playoffs is a huge achievement.
Despite Milwaukee leading the series by 3-2 and playing on home soil, Tatum recorded an impressive 46 points with a complete performance in defence and attack.
The 2021/22 NBA Playoffs will be remembered as Tatum’s post-season due to his contribution, ‘clutch’ moments and numbers. Despite being dressed in green and white, the 24-year-old forward is Bryant’ reincarnation.
