BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was a successful All-Star weekend for Celtics stars Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum.
Irving looked healthy in Team LeBron's win, and Tatum scored 30 in a Team U-S-A victory in the Rising Stars Challenge, plus he won the Skills competition.
But, there was still the Anthony Davis storyline—especially after the Pelicans superstar changed his tune about where he'd be open to playing when New Orleans trades him this summer.
"I never said Boston wasn't on my list, I never said it was not on my list," Davis said.
Most assume the C's would have to part with Tatum to get Davis, and he told ESPN he wants to spend his career in Boston, but he's not letting himself get distracted by the business side of the game.
"Can't worry about the future," Tatum said. "I only can control what I can do, and that's go out there and play basketball and compete for a championship this season, and that's all I'm really focused on right now. And after the season, sit back and see what happens."
Celts coach Brad Stevens stopped by Red Sox spring camp yesterday and said he's not worried about the rumors. That's Danny Ainge's territory.
There is one part of the future Tatum's focused on: Winning!
"We're gonna win the finals this year," he says.
That'd be nice.
