BOSTON — Jayson Tatum arrived to TD Garden on Sunday sporting a hot pink button-down shirt with the number "7" circled on the back, then proceeded to score more than anyone ever in a do-or-die NBA game.
Jayson Christopher Tatum Sr. is an American professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. A McDonald's All-American in high school in Missouri, he played college basketball for the Duke Blue Devils.
As he got older, Jayson's father acted as his trainer and coach to help him achieve his dream of playing basketball professionally. The Celtics star has said that neither his mother nor his father "took it easy" and "were extremely tough" on him, especially his dad. Speaking to Graham Bensinger in October 2022, Jayson got candid about how his father's coaching "put a strain" on their relationship.
Brandy holds several different degrees, including a law degree, which she earned in 2010. When she was in law school, Jayson would often be by her side and would flip through some of her textbooks as she studied.
In addition to Jayson, Justin has two more children: a son, Jaycob, and a daughter, Kayden. Jaycob went to high school at his father's alma mater, Christian Brothers College, where he played football. During his time on the team, they won two state championships.
