Jayson Tatum out $32 Million Because of a Technicality Involving Kyrie Irving
 

 
Although he’s not directly involved, Kyrie Irving is still affecting the Boston Celtics. The 2020-21 All-NBA teams were announced Tuesday, and Jayson Tatum was not selected for any of the three teams. That cost Tatum $32 million in future salary, and it boiled down to a technicality involving Irving.
Jayson Tatum misses out on $32 million and somehow Kyrie Irving is involved



One year ago, Tatum was named to the All-NBA Third Team after a stellar season that saw both personal and team success. He put up 23.4 points and 7.0 rebounds per game, guiding the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals. Last summer, Tatum signed a five-year max deal with the team. For max players such as Tatum who are about to enter their rookie extension deals, earning an All-NBA honor could be worth some serious cash.

In Tatum’s case, $32 million was on the line if he made any one of the three All-NBA teams. According to The Athletic, the NBA created the designated rookie extension rule to allow teams to exceed the 25% max with award-based incentives all the way up to 30% of the max. Tatum’s agent negotiated his deal to get 30% if he earned any All-NBA selection. That meant if Tatum repeated last year’s All-NBA Third Team selection, he would pocket the extra $32 million.

Tatum wasn’t selected for any team. The catch here is that he was eligible as either a guard or forward, according to Boston Globe Celtics writer Adam Himmelsbach. Irving, who had an ugly two-year stint with the Celtics before joining the Brooklyn Nets, made All-NBA Third Team and had fewer votes than Tatum.

When all was said and done, the NBA considered Tatum a forward because that was the position at which he received the most votes.

Did the Boston Celtics star get stiffed?

Even if Tatum was strictly considered a forward, he got a raw deal.

The two forwards on the All-NBA Third Team are Paul George and Jimmy Butler. Tatum outscored Butler 26.4 to 21.5 per game. He had more rebounds (7.4 to 6.9), while Butler had better a*sist numbers (7.1 to 4.3). Both teams were bounced in the first round, so team success doesn’t play a role. Butler also played in just 52 games.


Tatum also outscored and outrebounded George, who played in 54 games compared to Tatum’s 64. A case can certainly be made for Tatum being a third-teamer.

Nobody is going to feel sorry for a guy who signed an extension worth nearly $200 million, but a $32 million hit is still tough to swallow.

Did you not see their lack of interior presence this year? This shifts Smart and Pritchard into more prominent roles. Can't really say smart's role is more prominent but he can definitely play the pg position. Pritchard looks good.

This move actually gives the celtics more lineup flexibility

The rule is dumb and unfair.


Here's what's dumb.... if Tatum would have made an all-nba team in his 2nd AND 3rd seasons, he would be eligible for the extra money. If he was selected in only the 2nd season, or only the 3rd season, he doesn't get the extra money. However, if he was selected to an all-nba team in ONLY his 4th season, he WOULD have been eligible for the extra $32m.

So it made more sense for Tatum to kind of take it easy in seasons 2&3, and then go balls out for 1 season.


These guys losing out on sh*t they can't control. Most of the people that vote, don't even know sh*t about ball and don't even watch the games. That obese bi*ch Ramona Shelboure says she votes on awards by which storyline/narrative is best. She'd vote for lebron because of his age, rather than whoever actually did the most work and played the best. Plus, how many times recently have we heard people say they forgot to vote for someone... or they overlooked someone. These media hacks make these selections with the seriousness of choosing what toppings to put on a sundae... and it costs dudes tens of millions.
