Bradley Beal on Wizards: ‘It’s Going to be Scary’

After trading Russell Westbrook to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, the Washington Wizards became a much deeper team. While they lost a superstar level player, they added a handful of quality players that could truly impact winning.  

It’s early in the season, but Washington is tied for the best record in the NBA at 5-1. However, they’re just scratching the surface of their potential. 

With so many new faces, Bradley Beal thinks the Wizards are going to get even better as the season goes on and the team builds more chemistry. 

“Just imagine when everything starts clicking, when everybody’s gelling, when everybody’s healthy. It’s going to be scary,” said Beal

It’s started with defense for Washington, with their 102.5 defensive rating that’s good for tenth in the NBA. That end of the floor should only get better as the team continues to mesh. 

Beal is the clear leader of this Wizards team, with an opportunity to help them make a splash in the East this season.
