Former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins is impressed with the scoring ability of Jayson Tatum. According to him, the Boston Celtics forward is the best scorer in the NBA, just behind Kevin Durant.

This season, the 22-year-old is averaging 26.8 points, seven rebounds and 3.7 assists. Tatum’s most recent performance was against the Los Angeles Lakers as he scored 30 points and grabbed nine boards.

“Jayson Tatum is probably the best scorer in the game today right under Kevin Durant. Offensively, he has 0 flaws,” Perkins said as he proceeded to explain how Tatum is more versatile than James Harden. He went as far as to say Tatum will go down in history as one of the best scorer of all time.
