The Boston Celtics are no stranger to debates surrounding their two best players, star wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
Can they play together? Do they even like each other? Are both All-Stars? Can both make All-NBA teams? And, of course, the most recent debate they have found themselves sucked into: Are they the best duo in the NBA?
For some time, that was clearly not the case, even if the two oozed potential suggesting they might one day wear that mantle. But with the Celtics playing like one of the best ball clubs in the league thanks to Brown and Tatum’s play, there is a very good case they are now.
Former Boston Celtics big man and ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins recently made such a case on the popular ESPN show “NBA Today.”
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear why Big Perk believes this to be true.
