Yup. Good example. Winning cures all. And he shot 6-24 in the decisive Game 7. He is incredibly lucky that the refs stepped on the scale in the 4th and Ray Allen went ice cold or otherwise his legacy would he have included 2 L’s to the Celtics in the finals.Painful example, but Kobe shot 40.5% in the 2010 Finals and was of course the MVP
This proves that the book is yet to be written here. Tatum could shoot 6-24 in the next game but if he hits the critical shot, nobody will care about his shooting.
Or, he could shoot 12-25 but dribble the ball off his foot in the decisive possession and be labeled a “choker”. Sports legacies are fickle.
