 Cornell Haynes, better known as Nelly, was once a star athlete at University City High, in St. Louis. The gym teacher at that school was, Washington Wizard's guard, Bradley Beal's mother. Nelly used to walk Beal home on occasion, before he made it big as a rapper.

“I knew who we was, but I didn’t know,” Beal said of the now 39-year-old Nelly. “He used to walk me to school sometimes, when I was a little kid. He wasn’t as big as he is now, but he was an up-and-coming rapper and eventually ‘Country Grammar’ came out” in 2000.

On Tuesday night, Nelly was in the building to watch Beal's Wizards beat up on the Charlotte Bobcats, whom he is a part owner of.
