Turnovers, missed open threes, ridiculous defensive lapses, the writing is on the wall. Beal has all the power and knows it, so he's decided he's going to play how he sees fit. Nobody is denying his talent, but when you decide you are bigger than the team, that you don't hold yourself accountable, then things are going to turn south.
Agreed. Good points. Problem is Ted is not going to contemplate trading him…
What are the good points? If anyone in this organization deserves the benefit of the doubt when it comes to self-improvement it's Bradley Beal. Do you know how much the dude has improved??????? Like from where we drafted him to where he is now? When did Beal go from being the hard-working kid who has improved every year to
preening, half-assed ****. Turnovers, missed open threes, ridiculous defensive lapses,
It's just embarrassing. If Beal would have came in on day 1 and been this talented you'd have an argument. But he wasn't. He came in as a guy who was supposed to be a spot-up shooter. He literally worked hard and turned himself into one of the best scorers in the league. Why is it, that now we should tear him down? Could his defense be better? Yes. He needs to work on that. Like he worked on his ball-handling and finishing. There was a time when he couldn't even get to the rim, now he has to have a coming to Jesus moment? Are you serious? Like, at the very least, his constant improvement shows that he's very critical of himself and able to improve his game. Wizards fans show their true colors in losses. Always have and always will. That criticism went way beyond the pale imo.
Things like this make me embarassed to be a Wizards fan. I can count on one hand the amount of players that have improved as much during the course of their careers as Beal has. So to call him out like that is just ridiculous.
And for the record, Beal, like he has since we drafted him from Florida, is still trying to get better.
