Agree with Fish. I don't think we should be looking for Beal to score 30+ points. What I want to see is steady improvement, poise and the maturity/ability to deal with the frustration that comes from losing. I think we're seeing all three from Beal, which says an awful lot for a 19 year old who's being asked to do more for his team than most other rookies.

Not too shabby. Definitely not great shooting #s but he's getting better.

Not all star numbers, but he's put together some nice games.

His TS% is better than I thought. I'll take 53.1% from a rookie.

Ya he's getting to the line more and making his FTs. He's also only averaging 1.3 TOs

The game is finally slowing down for Beal. He seems to be a talented passer and rebounder. And I love his effort on defense, this pick is looking better and better.

I say Beal should be forced to take at least 20 shots per game, or be fined.

And Crawford should be forced to drive to the basket 10 times per game or be fined.

thats should develop those two into something that the Wizard's need.

Great to see the rook getting some love on ESPN as a potential fantasy pickup.


Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards (ATL, @ORL, @DET, DET): Thrown into major minutes after A.J. Price sustained a broken hand, the 19-year-old Beal now seems to be "getting it." He has been playing almost 40 minutes per night over his past three games and is averaging 17.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.8 3-pointers over his past four games. In that span, Beal is shooting 85 percent from the line (17-for-20) on 5.0 attempts per game. Beal's shooting is his one concern from a fantasy perspective. While he has been OK during this four-game surge (23-for-56, 41.1 percent), Beal is still shooting just 36.2 percent from the floor for the season.

Hey do Dleague players get practice time with the NBA teams?
if so, I wouldnt mind sending him and vesley to the Dleague, to get more mins of play time to improve, while keeping practice with the Wizards.
Especially Vesly. I am liking how Beal is turning out. Would like him to play more and shoot more.
And with Vesly, I feel that Wall's passing makes Vesly better player, and since Wall not there, Vesly's assist isnt showing. So best to develop him, and give him more play time.

The shots weren't falling v Miami tonight but I liked his aggressiveness. He was finding ways to get his shot off and was showing some variety...the shots will eventually drop more consistently...

+1 Take-away Jan's set-up dunks and you see exactly what's left of his game, not much.

Re: Beal, I have more confidence that Beal will be a better shooting guard than Wall will be an elite PG.
Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.

No. Our D-League affiliate is in Des Moines (or at least it was last year). You send a guy to D-League, and you're sending him to Iowa.

My first time to see Beal starting live was yesterday against the Lakers and he scores only 4 points then next game he scores 19 smh. Would've loved to see Beal play since I haven't watched too many Wiz games this season.

Hope Wall comes back in form and help out Beal in the backcourt soon.

If it was up to me, I'd have Bradley shoot as much as possible. Not that he's proven to be a great shooter or anything, but so he could get a feel for the game quicker and be more assertive. I think he needs to work on his handles more and develop a go to move where he can create enough space. And Just Drive man, Drive. He's the only one on the team that can get to the line consistently. I've always thought since Pre draft that his release was a little slow, but I know 2-3 yrs down the line, he's gonna be money. He's far from a finish product.

that would be pretty bad decision for a team thats trying to tank for rebuilding.

Wiggins is next season. you do know that right?

Wizards were one of the top teams in Fast Break Points.

And Those toss downs to Jan from Wall, was part of that.

Why break what you were good at if it was a good thing?

Perfect it.

Wiggins is in high school. yYu do know that, right? If he goes #1 in 2014, Wizards fans will have suffered through a sixth straight HORRIBLE season. The team will have at best a 25% chance of getting him, and even then, he'll be surrounded by the same crew of hobbled and/or overpaid and/or otherwise disappointing players, and the team will still be owned by Leonsis and run by Grunfeld. They're aren't losing in order to tank, they're losing because they're unable to do anything else. Unless Wiggins is Lebron, Kobe, or MJ good (and I have no reason yet to think he is) it'll barely put a dent in this team's problems. If he is that good, he'll still have a lot to overcome, and he may just take the first train out of town.

well he looking like it.

I dont care about 25%. its still a lotto Draft. that means a chance at top of the line talent.
Especially with the star talent of today aging every season. not long for the lower lotto teams to make a comeback.

You are too negative. Think about the positive for once. maybe it would be less stressful.

I would like to see the Wizards game be entertaining, if they going to lose. and right now, its not there yet.
But Wiggins is shaping up nicely so far.

Resignation, as opposed to despondency, is not particularly stressful, and it frees my mind from emotions that disrupt logical realism. The Wizards owner and GM are incompetent, dishonest, and dysfunctional. Why would I try to be positive about that? The Clippers went the lottery route for years, with little to show for it, and now you're calling for the 4th consecutive tank year?

Besides, five minutes ago you said everyone was a bust. Fan-based mood swings?
