Jayson Tatum focuses on leadership, mental toughness, and consistency: “My presence is felt.”

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/ Jayson Tatum is ready to embrace his role as a leader. Last season, Jayson Tatum came of age. Stepping into a lead role for the Boston Celtics, shouldering an additional playmaking burden, and adapting his game to be more of a downhill threat — Tatum took a leap.

However, the run was cut just short of their ultimate goal, as they lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games. Since then, Tatum has commented...

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown receive all the hype, but can key role players step up? We hear the term “glue guy” quite a bit as sports fans.
