Why Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are the NBA’s Next Unstoppable Duo

Reading Time: 2 minutesJayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have officially arrived. The two third overall picks in their respective drafts have now solidified themselves as the next dynamic duo in the East, and it’s really showing off well so far this season.  The first reason why they’ve broken out is because both of these guys have improved every single season they have been in the league.
