That's pretty remarkable.

Not just the message, though it is certainly the right message, but the man's ability to frame the message -- in words, in emphases, & in emotion -- & deliver it with real sincerity & authenticity. To deliver it in a way that has impact.

Nor is this message only, or even primarily, about basketball. Nor is it a message only, or even primarily, for young black men. I was given this message as a young writer, & I have given it to young writers many times. Only I don't do nearly as good a job as Brad does here. Not close.

I wish I knew Bradley Beal's parents, so I could tell them what a great job they did raising this outstanding human being.

Please tell me there's a good reason for Brad Beal to play 30 minutes for a team that is 18-32 playing an even worse team. Or is this just a clown organization?

Indeed...should Beal, Bertans and Rui remain healthish for the reminder of the season I predict the Wiz make the 11th or 12th seed (if Toronto helps and does not collapse). This means another year in the 7-9th spot in the draft, reducing our odds for a top 3 pick.

Beal is a competitive human being who doesn't want to quit.

Alright, contrarian. Otto Porter says hi. A lot of players want to play through injuries when the team has virtually no chance of making the playoffs in a normal season. The team can rest him. This isn't Garrison Matthews playing through an injury. But hey, he's courageous so let's play him.

I think this is definitely the right answer. It probably means nothing in terms of his next contract, but I'm sure it means something to him personally to win the scoring title.
Can't say I do.
