Boston Celtics stars Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum showed no mercy at a youth basketball camp recently, showing off their basketball mastery against some humbled pupils.
Hoopmixtape.com had the video of Irving showing off his trademark handles and finishing ability, and Tatum swatting a shot basically to halfcourt, among other highlights:

One of the young bloods actually played some solid defense on Tatum as he dribbled along the perimeter with little room to operate as a crowd gathered behind him.
However, in the end, he dished it to Irving, who threw an alley-oop that Tatum crushed down with authority. Two points the flashy way, indeed.
Tatum is coming off a breakout rookie season in which he averaged 13.9 points. The precocious Duke product upped his game for the playoffs, averaging 18.5 points to pick up the scoring slack as Irving sat out due to injury.
Irving sure looks healthy now, and Boston will welcome back Gordon Hayward next season as well after he missed all but one contest in 2017-18. Provided Tatum continues on his own promising trajectory, the Celtics are the favorite to come out of the East.
