Despite being cut from Team USA this summer, Bradley Beal remains an extremely confident young player.
According to Beal, he and All-Star teammate John Wall give the Washington Wizards the L’s top backcourt tandem.
Per the WaPo:
“I think we’re definitely the best back court in the league,” Beal declared at his team’s Media Day at Verizon Center Monday. “Just in terms of what we’re capable of doing, the confidence that we have in that. At the same time we got to prove it.”
Wall, 24, enjoyed the breakout season many have been waiting for since he was drafted first over all in 2010, becoming an all-star for the first time and leading the NBA in total assists. Beal 21, averaged 17.1 points and shot 40.2 percent in 73 games in his second NBA season and is regarded as one of the sport’s up-and-coming stars.
Their emergence garnered the “House of Guards” nickname last spring, a play off the popular Netflix show “House of Cards.”
