“The anonymous coach’s criticism is also overly harsh. Tatum defends well. He isn’t just preoccupied with scoring.

Tatum’s big problem: He doesn’t pass well enough for how much the ball is in his hands. But he’s just 23 and still learning. He can improve his skills and become more capable of winning on his terms. Or he can adjust his game to fit better into a team construct. Probably both.
