Boston’s Jayson Tatum says all the right stuff ahead of the 2023-24 NBA season

There is rarely much in the way of news in the months of August and September in the NBA season calendar, but All-NBA Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum threw Celtics fans a massive bone via a wide-ranging interview with The Messenger’s Jeff Goodman this week.

Tatum emphasized his commitment to Boston, discussed his growing comfort in a leadership role, and also spoke a bit about his offseason training regimen. Most importantly for fans of the Celtics, Tatum also made it clear that his ultimate goal is to bring an NBA championship back to Boston in his quest to become a Boston legend like those who have come before him.

Chris Forsberg, the host of the NBC Sports Boston “Celtics Talk” podcast, linked up with the Goodman author on the other side of that interview.

Check out the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
