Erik Spoelstra discusses Jayson Tatum’s evolution on offense
Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra says Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum has evolved a great deal as an offensive threat.
(via CLNS Media):
Reporter: “I know it’s positionless basketball now, but when you see Jayson [Tatum] running the point, is that something that you see — I know you guys scout inside out and back and forth, but is that something that alters the way you approach their offense?”
Spoelstra: “Look, at this point now, he’s evolved so much. He’s on the ball, he’s off the ball, his traditional position of 3, he also plays 4, plays at the point of attack. All the great players eventually get to that point, and you just have to figure out a way to overcome all of it.”
