Jayson Tatum is here to stay, and if you needed more validation, look no further than midway through the fourth quarter of Game 7 on Sunday. Tatum drove the lane midway through the fourth, rose up and absolutely stuffed it on LeBron James. It was one of the ugliest poster dunks James has been victim to in his career.
And he bumped him right after!

This game was incredible, and it came to a head when Tatum threw it down all over The King. But sadly for Tatum and the Celtics, LeBron exacted his revenge in the next few minutes to lead Cleveland to victory.
Still, what a performance by Tatum and what a moment.
