Jayson Tatum Takes Blame For The Boston Celtics' Loss To The New York Knicks While Praising Jaylen Brown: "He Carried Us Tonight... He Was Unbelievable. I Wish I Could've Done My Part."

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are both talented wings on the Boston Celtics, and both of them are quite clearly star-level players. While they are playing well individually, there has been some questioning from analysts on whether they can win together.

It is clear that Jayson Tatum has heard all the talk about himself and Jaylen Brown. When speaking to the media, Jayson Tatum provided some details on a talk that he had with Jaylen Brown, and he reiterated that both players want to be in Boston and want to figure out how to play together.

I mean, we obviously live in world where we're on our phones and on TV and we see all the things about we can't play together and everybody in the media is saying one of us gotta go, and we just had a talk about we both want to be here and we both want to figure it out.

Because there's not many players in the league like JB. The grass ain't always greener. And we've had some great stretches and I think just this year hasn't been what we expected, but I think in the long run it'll be good for us.

We got to figure some things out, but I think the most important thing is we both want it extremely bad, and we want to try to figure it out together, so for us to just be on the same page I think is extremely important, knowing we've got each other's backs and we're gonna give it all we got to try to figure this out, regardless of what people may say.

There's no question that the two have had "some great stretches" together. After all, the duo reached the Eastern Conference Finals together multiple times. Even if the team success hasn't been there this season, it could definitely come in the future. While a lot of people want one of the two traded, there have been people who have suggested that the Celtics shouldn't split the duo up, and it's clear that Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown want to figure things out as members of the Celtics.

Hopefully, we see Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown get back to the playoffs and show everyone that they can work together. While the Celtics have definitely had a disappointing year, there's still time to turn it around.
