After the monthly reward for Rookies, up for the NBA Players of the Month award. Devin Booker and Jayson Tatum are the first winners of the season, the Mamba Mentality team in the spotlight.
Difficult to find anything to complain about the selection of Jayson Tatum. On fire at the start of the season, in line with the last months of the previous year, the winger is carrying Boston to the heights, chaining the big cards. This night again, it was the Heat who got burned against the Jay Brother (49 points at 8/12 from the car park). The Celtics dominate the League, Tatum carbide balls, would we not have in front of us the first MVP of the greens since a certain Larry Bird, it was in… 1986. In any case, he gives himself the means to believe it with 31.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists on average. A monster.

On the other side of the country, it is Devin Booker who guards the cacti at the top. Chris Paul absent, “Armani” must go to the coal every night to guide Phoenix to victory. He too caught fire last night with… 51 points against the Bulls. To wonder if the two boys are not having a contest of who will explode his defender the most. With 29 points, 5.8 assists and 5.3 rebounds on average, the back is also a candidate of choice for the title of MVP, even if it seems a chouille in withdrawal compared to its colleague of Boston. Two scoring arsonists, two leaders of choice, two students of the late Kobe Bryant. From up there, the Mamba must surely appreciate the progress of his former proteges.

Devin Booker and Jayson Tatum made the show and it deserved to be rewarded as it should. The two stars collect the first monthly award of the season and we would bet a coin on the fact that it may not be the last.
