And there’s already some NBA drama surrounding Flagg, who is rumored to have faced off with Bradley Beal at Jayson Tatum Elite Camp.
According to Brian Scalabrine on SiriusXM NBA Radio, Flagg was busting Beal in a one-on-one matchup, and even trash talked Beal, leading to the NBA Star cussing him out.
“I heard a rumor that my boy Cooper Flagg was at Jayson Tatum’s camp and he was busting Brad Beal 1-on-1, and Brad Beal got mad at him. Started cussing him out…This dude is a major trash-talker. … So I guess the rumor is that Brad Beal and him were squaring off 1-on-1 and Brad Beal was taking it lightly. It’s a high school kid. Then Cooper started giving it to him. And I guess the rumor is, Cooper started talking trash and Bradley Beal got mad. Really mad.”
There is no doubt that Cooper Flagg is one of the most talented basketball players in the country. He has the potential to be a superstar at the college and professional levels. It will be exciting to watch him develop over the next few years.
