Jayson Tatum is a better player than Paul George, says a Western Conference executive.

Tatum and George are considered two of the best two-way players in the NBA, yet the Western Conference executive believes Tatum is already better than George.

“He’s a two-way player who’s better than Paul George. He can get to the basket, shoot three-pointers off the dribble, and he guards the best perimeter player,” the executive told HoopsHype.

Tatum has a career year with the Boston Celtics this season, averaging a career-high 23.4 points per game, seven rebounds and three assists on just his third season in the league.
