Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum took some late-night questions from fans on Twitter on Wednesday. Here are a few of the highlights:

That would be Nov. 3, 2017, when a "geeked" Tatum scored 13 points in the Celtics' 101-94 victory in Oklahoma City. Carmelo Anthony scored 10 and Paul George led the Thunder with 25.

Imo's, a Midwest pizza chain, is headquartered in Tatum's hometown on St. Louis. 

Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards is also from St. Louis and was four years ahead of Tatum in high school at Chaminade Prep. Tatum considers Beal a mentor, friend and big brother. 

Note: Tatum originally wore No. 11 with the Celtics in Summer League but switched to 0 after Avery Bradley was traded.

"Bean" is Tatum's boyhood idol, Kobe Bryant. 

The Celtics and their fans are no doubt pleased with Tatum's decision to enter the NBA Draft after one year at Duke.

Malik Monk, the guard for the Charlotte Hornets, starred at Bentonville (Ark.) High before playing in college at Kentucky. He was the 11th pick of the Hornets, eight spots after the Celtics took Tatum in the 2017 draft.
