On Saturday night, Boston Celtics All-Star Jayson Tatum tweeted.
The post goes viral as it has over 23,000 likes in less than 24 hours.
Tatum: “SEATTLE!! I appreciate that the atmosphere of love is crazy!! I hate that it ended like this. I really appreciate you all! I’ll be back and make sure to bring Deuce with me!”
Saturday night, Tatum played in Jamal Crawford’s pro-am league The CrawsOver in Seattle, Washington.
The former Duke star is coming off a phenomenal year for the Celtics where he averaged 26.9 points per game and made his third straight trip to the All-Star Game.
He made the NBA playoffs in the five seasons he was in the NBA, and last year they made it all the way to the NBA Finals.
They beat Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat on the road in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to win the conference.
In the final, they faced Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors.
The series lasted six games, and although the Celtics won the first game on the road in San Francisco, they lost four of the next five games.
For the Warriors, it was their fourth title in the last eight seasons (and the sixth time in the NBA Finals during that span).
Even though the Celtics lost, it was still a big season for them.
Tatum is 24, while Jaylen Brown is 25, and the duo have already made the Conference Finals three times together (and now the NBA Finals).
