Pregame Notes

Wizards have no idea what a “team” consists of

He can do it all, but not all he can do. Bradley Beal has moved up from fifth in scoring to now second in scoring in the NBA (But he wasn’t an All-Star...yeah ok!). That’s partly due to the fact that since January 20, he’s been scoring 25-plus points each game. Not to mention he had a then career-high of 53 points on Sunday, followed by a current career-high of 55 points where in return the Wizards lost both games.

Granted the Wizards are playing the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night, who are without Kyrie Irving for the rest of the season. But Beal can’t keep being the only one consistently scoring. When a player scores even over 30 points, the team as a whole should back that player up and help win the game...AS A TEAM. And that’s not the Washington Wizards.

They aren’t a team right now and Beal has basically done all he can at this point. The rest of the team needs to figure out what they plan to do to step up and assist him on the floor or start packing their bags because they may not even be there next season.
