Bradley Beal Says Washington Wizards Players are Depressed

They’ve started the season 0-11, and things don’t appear poised to get better anytime soon. So, it’s understandable that depression would be creeping into the Washington Wizards’ locker room (according to rookie Bradley Beal.) Per the WaPo: “The next six games are against San Antonio, Portland, New York, Miami, Atlanta and Golden State. None of those teams currently has a losing record and two of those games are on the road in arenas where the Wizards have had little success. Somehow, though, Beal believes the Wizards have what it takes for a turnaround. ‘We just lost. Everybody hates losing. You just see the guys faces, it’s like depression. We haven’t won a game yet,’ Beal said. ‘We still have [71] more games. It’s still a long season. We still have our opportunity to get over .500. Right now, it’s our goal we have to shoot for, is to probably get into the playoffs. We’re going to make it. I have faith in this team. I have confidence in us. I think we’re more than capable of doing it, with the assets that we have. As long as guys keep buying in and never give up, we’ll be fine.’ The Wizards are now the 12th team in NBA history to open a season with 11 straight losses, and they wasted their latest, best chance against a Bobcats team that was on the second end of back-to-back games and missing three of its best players in the final overtime period.”
