​Jayson Tatum has quickly become one of the brightest young stars in the ​NBA today. He put up terrific numbers ​in the postseason last year for Boston without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, and put on a show for team USA last night in the Rising Stars challenge.


A player like this definitely has to stay in peak physical condition throughout the course of the season, right?

Wrong. Very wrong. Three tacos is understandable, since it's how many you can get at Chipotle without paying extra, so that's a good barometer. An entire bag of cheese to go along with three tacos might sound crazy to some, but maybe it isn't crazy enough. 


The reporter didn't ask Tatum what else he gets on his tacos, and how much of everything else goes into them. 


If he's emptying out a pound of ground beef and a jar of sour cream on top of all this, then there is BIG cause for concern.

Appetites aside, All-Star weekend will soon be behind us and Tatum will have to shift his focus from hot salsa to hot 3-point shooting as​ he, Kyrie and the rest of the Celtics try to boost their standing in a very top-heavy Eastern Conference.
