The Boston Celtics star forward Jayson Tatum addressed the perception that Boston is labeled a ‘super team’ by stating that it’s a narrative often seen on TV.

He pointed out that despite this label, the team didn’t have the Coach of the Year or MVP and only had two players selected for the All-Star game. He emphasized that while they’re called a super team, their accomplishments don’t necessarily support that designation.

“That’s the narrative you might see on TV, the idea that we have a super team,” Tatum said. “It’s twofold. We didn’t have the Coach of the Year or MVP. We only had two All-Stars. They say we’re a super team, but we didn’t get rewarded like we are.”
