Ever since Jayson Tatum was drafted by the Boston Celtics in 2017, his son Deuce has been around for most of that same time. As Deuce has gotten older, he’s made more appearances at Celtics games, which has made him more of an internet sensation thanks to his public interactions with his dad. The latest video involving Jayson and Deuce is sure to do the same.
During a basketball camp that Tatum was hosting, Deuce was trying to score one-on-one against his dad. As Deuce got his shot up, Jayson blocked the show, shocking Deuce while mesmerizing all of the children watching in the process.
Some fans had some funny reactions to the video, including comparing Deuce’s scoring method of Giannis Antetokoumnpo’s.
Others included that the four-year-old could potentially get back at his dad on the court for the public humiliation.
Videos that show how Jayson Tatum interacts with his son like this one will only continue to make Deuce an internet sensation.
What’s also made Deuce so popular among Celtics fans is how cold he’s been to some of Tatum’s teammates in Boston.
Deuce Has ‘Beef’ With Other Celtics
Deuce has gained quite the attention for how he interacts with some of the other Celtics players. For example, when the Celtics beat the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the 2022 Eastern Conference Finals, Grant Williams was trying to either pound fists or get high fives from teammates. That was, of course, until he got to Deuce.
Once Grant tried to get a high five from Deuce, he coldly ignored Williams and later walked away with his dad.
As cold as that may have been, Grant is not the only Celtic Deuce has had beef with in the past. During a regular season game against the Utah Jazz, Deuce tried to punch Marcus Smart while Smart was inbounding the ball.
After the game, Smart was asked if he felt Deuce’s attempt to hit him, to which Smart confirmed while also elaborating on their relationship.
“I actually did. Deuce and I have a love-hate relationship… I was actually expecting it. Deuce is always trying to attack me any time I come around him. That’s just who he is. We all love Deuce, and he’s out guy so we’ll take it.”
Even though Deuce has established himself as an internet sensation for Celtics fans, he’s not the only child who has spent time with the Celtics after games.
Al Horford’s Son Made Appearances During Playoffs
Throughout the playoffs, Ean Horford, who is Al Horford’s oldest child, made appearances both in the Celtics locker room and during Al’s postgame press conferences. Ean sat right next to his dad after Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
Before that, Ean was sitting on his dad’s lap in the Celtics locker room when they defeated the reigning champion, Milwaukee Bucks, to get to the Eastern Conference room.
There was also a video of Ean and Deuce slapping each other five while celebrating the team’s playoff victory over the Bucks.
