For a while now, John Wall and Bradley Beal have maintained that they are the NBA’s premier backcourt duo.

When asked recently to rank themselves, to no one’s great shock, Wall and Beal re-iterated their shared belief that no other pair of guards in the L is better.

Wall appears to have reached perennial All-Star status, and Beal seems to be following in his teammate’s footsteps.

Per ESPN (via EOB):

Some people would say it’s (Stephen) Curry and (Klay) Thompson. How would you make that argument? […] Wall: “We are.” Beal: “We are.”

 

Because? […] Beal: “Both ends.” Wall: “Both ends. We play both ends of the court.”

 

Beal: “We’re just competitive.” […] Wall: “We take nothing away from them, but we just feel like we’re the best. I’m never going to say anybody’s better.”
