Jayson has received accolades from “NBA” legend LeBron James, who stated that “he’s built for stardom.” He has a close friendship with former “Duke” teammate Harry Giles, an NBA player. Jayson has been openly dating Samie Amos for some time. Recently, though, there have been rumours that the pair was going to split up. Samie confirmed it by accusing Jayson of adultery in a social media post. He had been having an affair with Toriah Lachelle, it was later found. Toriah and him are apparently expecting a child.
Jayson enrolled at “Duke University” in 2016. He missed a few games in the beginning of his first college season (2016–2017) due to a foot issue. In the end, he debuted in December 2016. He scored 10 points in his first game, helping his club defeat “Maine” with a victory. He regularly delivered over the following few weeks, helping his squad defeat top opponents like “Florida,” “Georgia Tech,” and “Miami.” The ‘Duke Blue Devils,’ his group, made it to the ‘ACC Tournament Championship’ finals in March 2017. The ‘Notre Dame Fighting Irish’ were defeated in the championship game by Duke, who went on to win. Jayson was a key contributor to his team’s victory with 19 points and 8 rebounds during the game. Tatum scored 22.0 points on average each game throughout the competition. His selection to the “All-ACC Tournament Team” follows. Duke performed poorly at the NCAA Tournament despite winning the ACC Tournament.
Duke was banished just after the second round. Jayson’s individual performance, though, was noteworthy because he averaged 16.5 points per game. After a productive rookie campaign, Jayson made the decision to enter the ‘NBA Draught,’ where he was anticipated to be selected in the first round. The 2018 “NBA Playoffs” saw the entry of the “Celtics.” Jayson once more played a crucial part in many of his team’s triumphs during the tournament. The second round playoff game he played in against the “Philadelphia 76ers” saw him score 28 points, which is a rookie record for the “Celtics.” By scoring over 20 points in four consecutive “NBA Playoff” games at the age of 19, he also created history.

In May 2018, he was chosen for the “NBA All-Rookie First Team”. He has also represented his nation in a number of international competitions.
