The Celtics star became the second-youngest player ever to reach 1500 career playoff points. Tatum reached the milestone in 24 years and 83 days. Only Kobe Bryant was able to do it better. 

The Duke alumn was drafted by the Celtics in 2017 with the third pick overall and immediately became a huge factor for Boston. 

So far, he has been a three-time All-Star, an All-NBA First team member, and an All-NBA third team member. 

Tatum also won a gold medal with Team USA at the Tokyo Olimpic Games in 2021.
