No doubt the NBA will consider it to be “tampering” and stick a fine on him, but Jayson Tatum is not afraid to say openly that he wants to play with Bradley Beal. Both from Saint Louis, he considers himself brothers, and the two dream of playing under the same jersey.

“We talked about it a lot of times. But above all, I think it would be really cool to play with him. We grew up together and we are very close. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of ” confirms the Celtics winger. “We didn’t have a chance to do it with the USA team, but we got to play the All-Star Game together last year, and it was a special moment. You see what I mean. It’s like playing in the NBA with your big brother. Who wouldn’t want to do that? “

The NBC reporter asks him for Beal’s perspective on this, and Tatum is more evasive. ” There are a lot of things that go into it. Obviously, there are decisions to be made, and he has to think about what is best for his family. What is certain is that we both love the idea of ​​doing it« .

Before withdrawing from the Olympics, Bradley Beal had also explained how much he dreamed of playing with his lifelong friend.

“We are both very impatient”, related the Wizards back already to NBC Sports. “We grew up five minutes apart. I don’t know if two players from the same high school have ever played together, in a group, in the history of Team USA (Editor’s note: Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant, teammates in 2012 and 2016, went through Oak Hill Academy, which saw a lot of NBA players pass). We are very excited. “

Unfortunately, the Covid prevented Beal from realizing this first dream.
