Boston Celtics star forward Jayson Tatum recently made an appearance on the popular podcast “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” to talk all things basketball-related and then some, and got into his favorite players in the league right now with rapper Gillie Da King and social media influencer Wallo267, the hosts of the podcast.
