Tatum beat Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young in the final of last season's Skills Challenge, making him the first Celtics player to win the event since it was introduced in 2003. Only three players -- Steve Nash, Dwyane Wade and Damian Lillard -- have won the competition multiple times. Lillard is the only player to win it in back-to-back years.
The Celtics star also will be in Sunday night's NBA All-Star Game as a member of Team LeBron. It's Tatum's first career All-Star appearance, and he'll actually be playing against Celtics teammate Kemba Walker, who is starting on Team Giannis.
