Boston Celtics guard Jayson Tatum put on a forgettable performance in Game 6 of the NBA Finals in Boston’s 103-90 loss to the Golden State Warriors, and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith , took note.

Following Thursday’s game, which saw the Warriors claim their first title since 2018, Smith tweeted a harsh criticism of Tatum.

“JT doesn’t have a dog in his mane…” Smith wrote.

Smith’s tweet went viral shortly after sending it. The second-year wide receiver took to Twitter again on Thursday to say fans were watching his comment on Tatum too much.

“You dig too deep, I love JT but the championship is on the line, we have to show up!” Smith wrote.

Smith knows a thing or two about winning championships, having won two national titles during his time in Alabama.

Tatum played well through the majority of the NBA Finals, but he struggled with Boston facing elimination in Game 6. After scoring 12 points in Game 1, the 24-year-old had 28 points in game 2; 26 in Game 3; 23 in Game 4; and 27 in Game 5. In Game 6, Tatum scored just 13 points and was 6 of 18 from the field. The three-time All-Star scored just two points in the fourth quarter.

Tatum finished the 2022 playoffs averaging 25.6 points and shooting 42.6 percent from the field in 24 games.
