The Boston Celtics were finally able to get over the hump.

They had struggled to win another championship, and it had been 16 years since their last title.

They had been quite the competitive team over the past five years or so, with Jayson Tatum at the helm.

Nonetheless, that also meant he got most of the blame and the criticism for all of their shortcomings, which were many.

With that in mind, Zach Lowe of ESPN claimed that it’s about time people put an end to the Tatum criticism.

Talking on Get Up, he stated that people should only critique Tatum on the merits of his play instead of nitpicking about whether he’s won an MVP or was named Finals MVP or not.

"Criticize him on the merits of his play. Don't criticize him on what's in his soul and his guts and his ability to win big games because he's proven that already."

It’s not like the criticism wasn’t granted, as Tatum had terrible performances in key moments multiple times, and he failed to get the job done despite having an elite supporting cast by his side more often than not.

Still, he’s been one of the best players in the game for quite a while now, and not many young players have to deal with that kind of burden.

That’s the demand and burden that comes with playing for the Celtics, but at this point, the fans are running out of things to say.
