Bradley Beal Goes Off In NSFW Rant On AAU Team: "F*ck Your Stats"

Bradley Beal Goes Off In NSFW Rant On AAU Team: "F*ck Your Stats"

When the offseason begins, NBA stars tend to get involved in different activities, whether it is traveling, training for the next season, linking up with other stars to work on certain aspects of their games, or just helping young players develop their talents. Many players have done different things this year and Bradley Beal isn't the exception. 

Beal is getting ready to face a new season with the Washington Wizards (at least for now), while also coaching an AAU team. The shooting guard is trying to give their best advice to these young players, and it's safe to say he's not holding anything back. 

In a recent clip, the All-Star was spotted giving a passionate speech to some players, telling them that once they reach a certain level, things will change for many of them. Not everybody will be an offensive superstar but will adopt a different role on a team, and Beal made sure that they understand that stats don't matter when you're playing high-level basketball.

“I got news for ya,“ Beal said in the video. “One you get to the next level, if you get there, you ain’t gonna be no offensive guy. That’s just real fellas… How many college guys you know averaging 20 a game? How many? None!”

He is indeed a scoring machine and one of the best finishers at the rim in the NBA today. It's been a while since he made it to the NBA, played alongside John Wall, and then had to take the reins of the Wizards to try to make them a competitive squad. 

Bradley knows that to be successful, you have to make sacrifices, and the NBA is the perfect example of that. Some of the players he's seeing on this AAU team won't make it to the league, others won't be under the spotlight while only one or two will be considered stars. 

It's good to see that he's sending the right message to these young men. People like Patrick Beverley were great in high school, scoring a lot of points every game, but things changed when they made it to college. The NBA is even harder than that and somebody like Beal, who has struggled to get things going despite being an offensive talent, knows that very well. 

This speech is something remarkable that will help these players from now on.
