  • Jayson Tatum famously idolizes the late Kobe Bryant.
  • Some NBA fans think he’s taking his love of Kobe too far.
  • Tatum was recently spotted dressing exactly like Kobe Bryant once did.

Last week, we brought you the story of the NBA world having a laugh at Jayson Tatum’s expense after the Celtics’ All-Star forward revealed that he texted the late Kobe Bryant’s phone prior to Boston’s Game 7 victory in the Eastern Conference Finals. Tatum had previously texted the late Bryant’s phone saying “I got you” prior to the Celtics’ win over the Miami Heat in Game 7 of the East Finals

Tatum obviously wasn’t deterred by being clowned on, though, as the 24-year-old was photographed dressing exactly like Kobe Bryant once did during the Celtics’ practice session on Saturday.

Tatum and the rest of the Boston Celtics will look to take a 2-0 advantage over the Golden State Warriors in the 2022 NBA Finals when the two teams face off tonight at 8 p.m. EST. He certainly better hope he plays more like Kobe Bryant in Game 2, as the Celtics star had just 12 points in Game 1 on 3/17 shooting.
