WASHINGTON — Well this came out of nowhere.
Wizards stars John Wall and Bradley Beal reportedly aren’t on very good terms and have gotten into several heated disagreements recently.
The report in question comes from CSN Mid-Atlantic.
The big takeaways from the report are the following:
The big question is whether or not this is a serious issue, or simply a few throwaway lines that were taken out of context.
Simply written, the words signal trouble on the horizon. However, in the video posted by CSN Mid-Atlantic, neither Wall nor Beal appear especially angry or bitter when they discuss each other. In fact, Beal has a grin on his face as he speaks. And if the two players really didn’t like each other, would they really be interested in voluntarily, and publicly, talking about the “discord” between them?
The entire discussion is available below.
The main thing Grant and Danny agree on is Wall is certainly the alpha in the pairing. They concede Beal is a huge part of Wall’s success, but they definitely think Wall is more responsible for Beal’s success.
This will be a nonissue, unless the Wizards put up another disappointing, postseason-less campaign. If that’s the case, this could continue to be a thing.
