Jalen Rose, on the Jalen and Jacoby podcast, expressed his sympathy for Pelicans’ Lonzo Ball and Magic’s Markelle Fultz. According to Rose, he feels sorry for the aforementioned pair, because they’ve improved quite a lot, but comparing to Jayson Tatum, who made an astronomical leap, they won’t get the deserved recognition.

“These young players are continuing the progress and I like their games. But they will always be compared to Jayson Tatum,” Rose said.
