Bradley Beal is in Boston to attend Game 4 between Celtics-Warriors

Guard of the Washington Wizards Bradley Beal is present for Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors.

However, Beal is unlikely to be at the TD Garden just to watch a basketball game: the 28-year-old is in Boston to support fellow St. Louis native and friend Jayson Tatum, who is in his first NBA Finals.

The two players share a close bond, which is why the Guardian of Wizards is there as a support system for his friend. In April, Tatum opened up about the friendship the two share despite their four-year age difference.

“Brad is the big brother I didn’t have. I remember it was either my freshman year or my sophomore year [of high school]like one of my spring breaks,” Tatum said.

“Brad just texted me; He said, ‘Yo, ask your mom, can you come over here and just chill with me and come over for some games?’ I think alright, bet; I’m out. I went to DC; I spent about a week with him, he and his brothers went to a few games.”

Although Beal is a good friend through his presence, the Guardian will see two sides coming through a long season and grueling playoff matchups to reach the final stages. The Wizards star sees what it takes to play in the NBA Finals and he recently spoke out about his future Bleacher Reports Taylor Rooks.

“I know what my decision will be based on and that’s going to be the point where I feel like I can win,” Beal told Rooks.

“That will be my decision. If I feel like I can win in DC, I will, and I want people to respect that. You may, you may not, but I’ll work my ass off. I will compete and try to make this team better. If it’s somewhere else, it’ll be exactly the same commitment.”

Beal has a player option on his contract in 2022-23, but can either sign a five-year long-term contract with the Wizards for about $242 million or choose a four-year free agent deal for up to $179 million.
