In Chicago, they love two things; sports and pizza. Washington Wizards star, Bradley Beal is ripping into both.

The Wizards stormed to an opening game 102-93 win at the United Center, which put the hometown Bulls on the back-foot in the seven game playoff series. 

However, now Beal has attacked something even stronger in Chicago-land, their deep-dish pizza.

From CSN Washington:
“I can’t eat the fat pie, whatever it’s called, the deep dish pizza,” he said before Tuesday’s shootaround going into Game 2 with the Chicago Bulls. “I can’t eat that. I had the regular thin one. I didn’t eat a lot (of the deep dish). It’ll just sit there (in your stomach) and you’ll be in the bathroom for hours.”

Beal definitely knows what to say to anger a fan base and Bulls fans are going to be after the Wizards' guard blood as this series continues.

The next game in the series will tip tonight, again at the United Center before the two teams head to Beal's turf in DC.

Beal had 13 points and seven assists in the opening game of the series and will certainly enjoy teaming up with John Wall to take on the lesser backcourt of the Bulls.

However, newly crowned defensive player of the year, Joakim Noah is set to up his game on the court in order to stop the Wizards onslaught.
