Feeling very comfortable with my very rare positivity on something wizards, as in Beal, never lost the faith, figured he'd look a lot different once the team was starting it's first choice V, and sure enough, he looks like a different man w/Wall in there :). I'm shocked at how well they've been playing thus far, expected improvement, but not to this degree.

It's probably been brought up here, but I don't think it's got the attention it deserves: Beal has no left hand. Not only can he not dribble with his left hand at all--to the point that he'll do those one-handed crossovers rather than two-handed ones--but he doesn't shoot with his left hand, ever. Not on open layups, not on contested layups, now on short chip shots.

He's played this well without a left hand. I'm sure he can develop one if he sticks at it a few years. He has the chance to be a scary good player.

I wonder what can make a Beal-Wall on the floor together rotation better.

Interesting. You are right, but what's funny is that it's not very noticeable. Some one-handed guys are so obvious about it that it becomes easy to take their strong hand away. Calbert Cheaney was all left hand, for instance. Beal is so economical in his moves that you don't really notice that everything is with his right hand.

He'll get better at it though. I don't think it's all that uncommon for a non-PG 19-year-old to heavily favor the strong hand.

Beal has been awful....... for the tank.

Another stealth 20+ point game. He is averaging 19 for the month and on the season his 3 point percentage is up to 36.4%.

I would like to see more pick and rolls with Nene/Beal. They don't do it often but when they do it really makes it tough for the defense.

Beal and Wall have been excellently together. I'm pretty excited about this team, just wish we didn't blow our cap flexibility on Okafor/Ariza.

You both must have missed the end of the Denver game last night as Beal was dibbling around in the back court running off the clock and he transitioned onto his left hand effortlessly and continued dribbling around.

That is as much dribbling as I have seen Beal do in a while. He really doesn't dribble all that much now that the team has PGs out there. One or two dibbles to set up a shot or he passes. If you are thinking about dribble drive moves, then I would expect he finishes on his strong side. Specially if he is considering a dunk.

If the wiz gain some traction in the W column, we might see him in the 3 point contest. With the way Wall was dunking in the rookie v. sophmore game last year he coulda been in the dunk contest as well.

I dunno, Beal strikes me as an in game shooter. Not a stand alone.

His shot is a bit slow for the 3pt comp

Still i think he would have a chance if he gets hot

Can we still get the Beard for him?

I kid, I kid...
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

Nate - defintiely agree. I would also.

But here's the thing - would Ted (or Ernie)?

Yeah i've been watching him get at least one jumper blocked per game.

I dont want to sound like im knocking the guy or anything, he is playing great for a rook, its just something he needs to work on.

His release is a tad slow but he's doing a great job using pump fakes and step back moves to get separation.
