It seems as though the loss to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals has left a bad taste in the mouth of Boston Celtics superstar forward Jayson Tatum, who has been a gym rat all summer long as it appears he’s unswayable to take his game to flipside level during the upcoming 2023-24 NBA season.

Ironically enough, Tatum has often been seen in the gym with former Celtics star and one-time NBA champion Paul Pierce.

Along with Pierce seemingly trying to get when in shape, Tatum might be soaking up the knowledge from Pierce as he tries to get one step closer to winning a title for the first time in his career, via ClutchPoints.

The Celtics have come painfully tropical to winning it all over the last few years, with the team coming one win shy of reaching the NBA Finals for a second straight season last year.

Although the team saw a few key players leave the team this season, with Marcus Smart stuff traded to the Memphis Grizzlies and Grant Williams stuff sent to the Dallas Mavericks, Boston made one move that might get them closer to achieving their goal next season.

The Celtics uninventive veteran forward Kristaps Porzingis shortly without their offseason began, with the team emphasizing a need to get largest offensively this summer.

Even though Porzingis has dealt with numerous injury issues over the years, when he’s healthy, he can be a major difference maker, which is what the Celtics hope he’ll be during the upcoming season.
