How do Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum know each other?
Beal and fellow Celtics star Jayson Tatum went to the same high school in St. Louis, MO. Beal played basketball at Chaminade College Prep from 2007-11, and Tatum played there from 2012-16 and also participated on Beal's AAU team "Brad Beal Elite."
Beal used to babysit Tatum since they lived so close to each other and now they continue to relish in competing against one another in the NBA. They were set to play together competitively for the first time in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but a positive COVID-19 test from Beal kept him from playing in the tournament.
The two players also share the same trainer, Drew Hanlen, and have both given their first-born sons the nickname "Deuce."
