Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum are currently both stars in the NBA, but their connection goes much deeper than that. They are longtime friends that went to the same high school.

For any player in the NBA, playing with their friends must be appealing. It makes sense that playing on the same team with people one has a close bond with can make a player perform better simply due to the comfort level.

Jayson Tatum was asked about the potential of him recruiting Bradley Beal by Abby Chin of NBC Sports. Tatum admitted that the pair have "talked about it plenty of times", and that they "both like the idea of it".
