Jayson Tatum participated in the Rumph Classic in Philly and looks ready for the upcoming season.
Jayson Tatum was able to get some summer work in at the Annual Rumph Classic at La Salle University in Philadelphia. The Classic is held to bring awareness to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a potentially-fatal condition that took the lives of former Celtics Reggie Lewis, Pete Maravich and Fab Melo, in addition to Daniel E. Rumph II, for whom the event is named.
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a condition in which a portion of the heart becomes thickened without an obvious cause. This results in the heart being less able to pump blood effectively. Symptoms vary from none to feeling tired, leg swelling, and shortness of breath. It may also result in chest pain or fainting.
Jayson looked like he had free rein to go to work against the competition. I am sure his presence at the Classic attracted a good crowd, and he looks well-prepared for the coming season.
