Jayson Tatum likely changing to No. 0

Jayson Tatum likely changing to No. 0

The 7-11 nickname wasn't that good anyway. 

Based on a tweet from Jayson Tatum (and that trade the Celtics made), it would appear the Celtics' first-round pick will switch from No. 11 to No. 0. 

Last week's trade of Avery Bradley to the Pistons freed up No. 0, which Tatum wore in college at Duke. Though Tatum has worn No. 11 in Summer League play, the Celtics' official team store is selling No. 0 Tatum jerseys.

The team had embraced the "7-11" nickname for Jaylen Brown and Tatum, but Tatum's quote of a Brown tweet suggested that's all over. 

So there you have it. The No. 1 player in the history of the world will wear No. 0.

Isaiah Thomas diligently studying film at midnight on Friday

Isaiah Thomas appears to be channeling the New England Patriots' "No days off" slogan.

The Boston Celtics guard spent Friday night, in the middle of the NBA offseason, studying film. He was up past midnight to take a look at Boston Celtics' game tape, according to ESPN.com's Chris Foresberg, who posted a picture on Twitter of Thomas hard at work.

Thomas finished the 2016-17 season with 28.9 points per game, 5.9 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 33.8 minutes. He helped the Celtics earn the NBA Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed, and contributed a handful of clutch performances as Boston charged to the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, who won the series, 4-1.
