Bradley Beal is a certificate superstar and a bucket getter. There is no doubt when it comes to his skills as he has proven to the entire world that he can do everything. He has also been counted in during MVP conversations on several occasions but luck never seemed shed on his career.
Recently, he spoke about his team, the Washington Wizards potentially making a strong comeback and also sent out a brief warning to the rest of the league. The Wizards have been having it tough over the last few seasons. But with his level of confidence, the team has only gotten scarier.
“I’ve shown I can score with the best of them. I’ve shown I can be an All-Star. I’ve shown I can be an All-NBA player. I’ve checked every box. Now I have to win and be a winner. That’s my final box that I want to check and will check.”
The Washington Wizards attempt to make a resurgence
Two seasons ago, the Wizards tried their luck at achieving playoff success. This was when Russell Westbrook was traded to the team and paired up with Bradley Beal. Russ averaged 22.2 points, 11.5 rebounds, 11.7 assists per game and led them all the way throughthe play-in tournament eventually being eliminated by the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round.
Westbrook was traded next season in exchange of Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell and Kontavious Caldwell-Pope from the Los Angeles Lakers. Kuz averaged a great 17.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game while making a name for himself. Harrell would also help lead the Wizards to the top of the Eastern Conference during the start of the season.
Although Bradley Beal faced problems with injuries therefore only appearing for 40 games in total. He struggled to find his ability averaging only 23.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game. This was a huge step back from averaging 31.3 points per game last season which horribly ruined the Wizards chances of post-season success. Now with Kristaps Porzingis on the roster, things could work out well.
