For whatever reason, there continues to linger a narrative that the Boston Celtics two All-Star forwards Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum need to be split up. The reasons are varied, ranging from duplicative play, to a stagnant offense, and a favorite that turned out to be complete rubbish was that they were not friends off of the court.
Yet the narrative continues to persist despite a growing body of evidence that there’s little to any truth to any of the takes that suggest splitting the duo up would make sense. On a recent episode of the Sports Illustrated “Crossover” podcast, Celtics Hall of Famer Paul Pierce shared his thoughts on the narrative.
“You know, I never believed that,” said The Truth.
