A Shocking Fact Regrading Jayson Tatum And Tyronn Lue

As the Cavs and Celtics are preparing for the Eastern Conference Finals this upcoming week, they might find that they have very little in common. The Cavs are an older, more experienced veteran team being lead by, perhaps, the greatest player the world has ever known. On the other hand, the Celtics are a young, up-and-coming squad on the rise, playing (at least currently) without a true superstar on the floor.

To to everyone's surprise, they might have a little more in common than we think.

According to Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, Celtics' forward Jayson Tatum is actually his "distant cousin," and has been watching his development for years. It was nothing but love for Tatum, as Lue went on about how "crazy" it felt to watch him be so successful in his NBA journey so far. But with a Championship on the line, it will be interesting to see how this situation develops.
