You can see Boston Celtics star forward Jayson Tatum‘s COVID-19-induced scoring dip as clear as day in his monthly scoring splits. Dropping from 28.8 points per game in January to just 24 a tilt once he’d gotten back on the floor in January, it jumped to 25.3 points per game in March, and his scoring exploded to a new high of 29.2 per game in April.

The Duke product is clearly on the upswing in his career again after a virus-induced blip, but has he arrived at superstar status yet after his historic, 53-point performance? Our friends over at the CLNS podcast “Celtics Beat” dive into this very question, joining famed Celtics broadcaster Sean Grande as they try to triangulate where the young swingman sits in the wider NBA pantheon.

Check out the video embedded above to hear this and other Celtics-related talk about a franchise slowly awakening — we think — from a deep winter slumber.
