Ime Udoka asks Jayson Tatum to take a step back

He hadn’t spoken for a week, and the defeat of the Celtics in Game 6. The day after the Draft, Ime Udoka spoke about Boston’s defeat in the final against the Warriors, and like Brad Stevens, he first defended Jayson Tatumvery clumsy in these Finals, and dominated in the hot moments of Game 6.

« He’s had a really big year – with a spot on the All-NBA First Team, all the honors he’s won, and obviously he’s played a huge role in getting us this far. recalls Ime Udoka. ” The message I sent to him is the following: take a step back and rest physically first. You had a long season, a busy offseason with the Olympics last year, and you plunged straight into the season, with all the situations we went through like injuries. He’s been kind of a balancing force, he hasn’t missed a lot of games because of injuries or COVID. When the guys were away he had to shoulder a lot of the load. »

Jayson Tatum is only 24 years old, and the most important thing is to decompress. Other very great players have been there before him. Like LeBron James in 2007 and 2011, or Kevin Durant in 2012.

“He has to get back in shape physically, take a step back mentally, reflect and decompress in a way” insiste Ime Udoka. “He has to take stock of what he has in mind. Just take advantage of this time. We don’t want to bother the guys at the moment, but we want to send the message that there are still things to build and develop in certain areas. I think that above all, you have to take a step back and reflect on everything you have done, taking the time to look at the season as a whole and the individual successes. »
