Despite how the fans feel about it, Boston Celtics superstar Jayson Tatum is friends with Philadelphia 76ers superstar Joel Embiid, both on and off the court.
Both Tatum and Embiid are trained by Drew Hanlen through his Pure Sweat basketball training company. Hanlen has a catalog of stars he works with, including Bradley Beal, Zach LaVine, Tyler Hereo, Tyrese Haliburton, Kelly Oubre, Mo Bamba and many more.
On the first episode of The Unseen Hours, Tatum and Embiid are seen having a conversation during a shootaround about the pressure you feel leading up to the NBA Finals.
There’s nothing that matters more to Tatum than winning a championship. Now that he has a taste of almost winning a championship, he’s searching to hang a banner of his own in the crowded TD Garden rafters he plays under every home game.
