SB Nation NBA Reacts: Wizards fans want Bradley Beal to start in the All-Star Game

Fan confidence was just 10 percent on the other hand.

Hi, this is the second part of SB Nation NBA Reacts weekly survey results. I just made this a separate post given that the national topic on the national anthems being played before games. The first part can be found here.

Before we get to the Wizards’ results, there were additional national questions, primarily on which teams will make the playoffs and which ones won’t. Darren Yuvan of The Dream Shake has the national results on those topics here. I didn’t elaborate on them given that those questions weren’t relevant to the Wizards at this time.

Now, back to the topic at hand:

Wizards fan confidence hits a new season-low of ten percent

The trend line is continuing to go down...

The Wizards remain the second worst team in the Eastern Conference and their losses are now looking worse than ever though they can still pull a thrilling win here and there.

It should be no surprise that most of us are not confident about how things are going. Matt Modderno gave his take on why ownership must take more responsibility with the Wizards’ current state, taking note that we often side with them as opposed to players during contract negotiations. It builds on another article that Marcus Atkinson wrote earlier this month.

Bradley Beal must start in the All-Star Game (if it happens)! Russell Westbrook can ... stay at home.

This week, I was able to get the SB Nation NBA Reacts crew to add some questions specifically relevant to the Wizards. Since Bradley Beal is leading all Eastern Conference guards for All-Star voting and Russell Westbrook remains in the Top 10.

As you might have expected the vast majority of Wizards fans believe Beal should start in the All-Star Game. I’m disappointed that this wasn’t 100 percent though.

And 81 percent don’t think Westbrook deserves to the be in the All-Star Game. Since he is a former NBA MVP and has more general appeal among fans nationwide than Beal, at least historically, you never know if the coaches give him an assist with an All-Star vote as a reserve.
