“I got weights and bands and a bike to do some cardio,” Tatum said Tuesday after informing Emoni Bates he became the first sophomore to win the Gatorade National Player of the Year award in basketball. “It’s tough, but on the other side, I know there are more important things going on in the world.”8

Tatum’s comments echo similar ones he made in an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols on The Jump Monday, referencing not being “able to touch a basketball” since the Celtics’ last game.

Since the NBA suspended its season because of the coronavirus pandemic, Tatum has tried to make the best of an extended stay at his home in the Boston area.nfl nike jersey cheap

“I’ve been taking time to relax and be at home with my son every day,” he said in a phone interview. “I am trying to enjoy this time and the things we usually take for granted.”
