Where does Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum rank in the NBA’s hierarchy of superstars?

Where does Boston Celtics small forward Jayson Tatum rank in the NBA’s hierarchy of superstars going into the 2022-23 NBA season? By most accounts, he is a top 15 player in the league after making first team All-NBA. In some analyses, the St. Louis native has cracked the shortlist of the 10-best players in the league.

Such is the case with the folks over at the “Hoops Tonight with Jason Timpf” show on The Volume YouTube channel. They made projections about the campaign to come, and Timpf took us through his personal top 10 of NBA players for this season. Boston’s Tatum is among them.

Watch the clip embedded below to see where the former Duke standout lands among Brooklyn Nets star swingman Kevin Durant. Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid and Los Angeles Clippers star forward Kawhi Leonard.
