Jayson Tatum is sorry, Ms. Jackson.
The Boston Celtics guard apologized to singer Janet Jackson after his team beat the Atlanta Hawks 128-120 to win their first-round NBA playoff series, 4-2. The Celtics had a chance to close things out in Boston on Tuesday, but the Hawks’ win meant Jackson’s show for her “Together Again” tour on Thursday night had to be pushed to Friday instead.
“I want to send an apology to the legend @JanetJackson ” 🤣

At least Tatum is giving Jackson her props as a true legend. The Celtics will now move on to face the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
