Will Jayson Tatum win MVP this season with the Boston Celtics?

Will Jayson Tatum win the NBA’s Kia Most Valuable Player award this season with the Boston Celtics? The St. Louis native jumped out to an early lead in the narrative-based regular season award but has since seen the pressure turned up by the likes of Denver Nuggets star center Nikola Jokic, Dallas Mavericks wunderkind Luka Doncic, and even a handful of other would-be challengers.

Other award races the Celtics have a solid shot at from Joe Mazzulla in the Coach of the Year race, Marcus Smart in the Defensive Player of the Year considerations, Brad Stevens in the Executive of the Year scrum, and Malcolm Brogdon in the Sixth Man of the Year race have seen their fortunes change of late, as has the probability of Jaylen Brown getting an All-NBA nod.

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast got together with Ethan Fuller of the Boston Globe and Basketball News to talk over the state of the ball club and the various hardware races noted above.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what they had to say.
