Being snubbed an All-Star appearance, Bradley Beal is one of the most underrated up-and-coming superstars in this game. The numbers that he puts up for the team that he’s on are just phenomenal.
This season has, by far, been Beal’s best. He’s averaging 30.5 points per game. The only player that notches more per game is James Harden. On top of that insane per game average, Beal also 4.2 rebounds and 6.1 assists.
It’s truly a mystery as to how he didn’t make that event. However, his performances on a team that’s consistently at the bottom of the Eastern Conference aren’t seen as impressive as if his Wizards would be at the top.
The Wizards, who have John Wall’s massive deal on the books, need to restart.
They need to get a top pick to go along with Wall and Rui Hachimura. Having two in this draft, Andrew Wiggins and then another future first could be enough to engage the franchise that’s struggled over the last few seasons in trade talks.
