For legendary guard and current ESPN NBA analyst Vince Carter, no Boston Celtics player has stood out more in the team’s red-hot start to the 2022-23 season than superstar forward Jayson Tatum.

Taking note of how Tatum has helped his team exceed expectations after a turbulent end to its offseason, Carter recently explained why the former Duke standout stands out most among his Celtics peers on a recent episode of the popular “NBA Today” show.
Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what he had to say.
