After the BIG win on Wednesday, Bradley Beal casually appeared on Instagram for Throwback Thursday. Beal posted a telling photo of himself, Wall and Pierce in a group hug, laughing and cracking jokes.
Beal, a man of few words most of time, asked his followers this one question: "#tbt Caption this...Lol" and they obliged.
Here are some of my favorite responses:
- gmoney___baggs You know Paul you barely gonna see the court if you go play in LA right?
- b_rad_z_23 "And after the swish you leave your hand in the air and CALL GAME!"
- kamalnightlife Were the three best friends that anyone could have!!
- Kentizzle Wall: "Yo truth teach this kid how to shoot haaa"
- scottyboomz "Y'all gonna rock the headband when I leave riiiight?"
It's probably not a coincidence Beal posted this a day after hitting a Pierce-esque game-winning shot to beat the Spurs, and leading the Washington Post to declare "Bradley Beal is Wizards’ new Mr. Big Shot."
I don't know about you but I love this pic. Paul Pierce may no longer be a Washington Wizard, but the impact he had on the young Wizards backcourt will last as long as Beal continues to embrace his new role.
