Celtics’ Jayson Tatum says MVP voters hold Boston’s 2022 NBA Finals loss against him

Star Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum recently shared that he believes that the people who vote for the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award are still holding his late collapse in the 2022 NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors against him.

Is the St. Louis native right about this? And if he is, is that out of line given the award is for how he is playing in this, the league’s 2023-24 season? Or is it fair to consider a player’s history in full, along with how they are playing in any given season? And what about the role of the team around an MVP candidate? Should not that count for something?

Chris Broussard and Rob Parker, the hosts of Fox Sports Radio’s “The Odd Couple” show, took some time to talk it over on a recent episode.
