Jayson Tatum Getting Snubbed From An All NBA Team Is A Giant Crock Of Shit

Now this is laughable for a few reasons. There are not two forwards on that third team that had a better season than Jayson Tatum. I can say that objectively. 

You want to make the case for one? Sure. But not both. So the fact that Tatum was just robbed of an extra $32M because of one of those guys is pretty bullshit. There were 3 players who hit the 60 point mark this season. Steph Curry, Bradley Beal, and Jayson Tatum. Notice a theme there? Did we see Jimmy Butler or Paul George do this?

I don't think so. 

Then we also see the part where LeBron makes 2nd team All NBA while playing 45 games. Pander more Adam Silver, jesus christ that's pathetic. Other than that, everybody else made sense. You just cannot sit here and tell me that Jayson Tatum did not have an All NBA season. We all saw it happen. It gets even crazier the as more details come out

The good news is, now we can add this to the fire for Tatum. I'll gladly sign up for a revenge tour next season. He's also about to get the Team USA bump you often see when a guy plays in the Olympics. Often times, the MVP comes from that group. Look it up. It also saves the team some luxury tax money but I don't really care about Wyc's wallet. I'd rather see Tatum get his rightful acknowledgment. 

On a separate note, I'd be just as bullshit if I was James Harden. He played 42 games to LeBron's 45. He was playing at a legit MVP level on a team that almost never lost. Somehow he's not on any All NBA team but LeBron is 2nd team? How the hell does that make any sense.

So while it sucks that Tatum that he got snubbed, I am very excited for what comes next.
