Jayson Tatum's numbers through the first three years of his promising career are beyond impressive.
But when you put those numbers into perspective and compare them with what some NBA legends did at such a young age, it's truly remarkable what he's accomplished already.
At 21, Tatum has joined elite company in several categories. While he enjoys an All-Star season in Year 3, the 2017 No. 3 overall pick is setting himself apart from other young Boston Celtics standouts who have preceded him.
Here are some of the craziest Tatum stats entering Friday night (courtesy of @BostonSportsInf on Twitter) as he continues to develop into a bonafide superstar.
