Jayson Tatum wasn’t afraid to call out a special guest prior to Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Micah Parsons of the Dallas Cowboys attended Game 1 between Tatum’s Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat of the conference finals at TD Garden on Wednesday night. Prior to the game, there was a friendly exchange between Parsons and Tatum.
During the brief interaction, Tatum called out Parsons for being a bandwagon fan — noting that he previously saw Parsons wearing a Philadelphia 76ers jersey. Tatum’s Celtics eliminated Philly in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Sunday.
Here’s the clip of Tatum’s conversation with Parsons ahead of Game 1 on Wednesday night:
