Jayson Tatum supposedly had his new JT1 signature sneaker leaked on Thursday, but the Boston Celtics superstar confirmed those weren’t the real shoe after getting absolutely blasted on social media.
The leaked image polarized fans online, with basketball fans roasting the plain look and color scheme. But Tatum cleared up the rumors ahead of Thursday night’s win over the Brooklyn Nets, assuring fans the real sneakers would look much different.
“Truthfully, that’s not the real picture,” Tatum said, per masslive.com. “I seen the not-real version come out today and the kid in me wanted to post the real picture. But I’m excited. I’m going to be wearing them very, very soon. But that’s not exactly how they look. But I’m excited. It’s been a long time coming.”
