Both stars held a joint conversation on Instagram Live in which they announced they've raised nearly $290,000 for St. Louis Area Foodbank and Feeding America. They also revealed additional plans to donate 1,000 pizzas to hospital workers in the city from Imo's Pizza.

"Imo's Pizza is the best pizza out there," Beal says, extremely incorrectly. But a wonderful deed, nonetheless.
Keep your incorrect Imo's takes to yourself, Fred.
Anytime Beal and Tatum get together the conversation is extremely entertaining, to say the least. One topic that came up Friday night was that of players skipping college to participate in the G-League, amid top high school recruits Jalen Green and Isaiah Todd choosing to do so.
Green's G-League contract will be "$500,000-plus and provide a one-year development program outside of the minor league's traditional team structure," according to ESPN's Jonathan Givony Adrian Wojnarowski.
The $500,000 is what got the guys going...
Tatum said he might've still gone to Duke instead of taking $500K in the G League.
Beal responded: "So Duke gave you $600K?"
Tatum: "Hey, Duke might be the only stand-up school in the country."
To which Beal responded:
Beal: "Listen man, I was born, but I wasn't born yesterday."
