University of Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal worked out with the Washington Wizards Thursday as the team prepares for the upcoming NBA Draft, where they will have the third overall pick.
On his way to D.C., Beal tweeted about his pretty famous seat neighbor:
Sitting next to Jesse Jackson on the plane ! Cool dude !

Jackson is definitely an interesting individual, so siting next to him on a flight might be entertaining. Yet, according to Beal, "cool" doesn't necessarily mean "quiet" as he explained after finishing his workout:
Bradley Beal sat next to Jesse Jackson on the plane ride over. "He talked A LOT. I put my headphones on. ... He didn't know who I was"

Hopefully, Jackson will not find out about this and make Beal apologize. He has to catch wind of it first.
