Bradley Beal has been considered one of the better guards in the game for years now. His shooting and scoring ability is elite, and he proved that this past season when he averaged 30.5 points, 6.1 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game on 45.5% shooting.
Unfortunately, Beal has nothing to show for his efforts. He was left off the All-Star roster and failed to make any of the All-NBA teams.
On Twitter, he expressed major disappointment...
Without John Wall, Beal was the main man in Washington this season, and he stepped up with career-highs across the board. As a result, the Wizards were 9th in the conference and received an invite to Orlando before being eliminated shortly after.
Considering everything, it's fair to say the Wizards overachieved this season, and Beal was a huge part of that.
But did he really get snubbed from the All-NBA rosters? The rosters have limited space for guards and guys like Damian Lillard, James Harden, Chris Paul, and Russell Westbrook were automatic locks to make it in.
Unfortunately for Beal, there were just too many star guards for him to make the cut.
But, with John Wall set to return next season, and Beal coming off his best stretch as a pro, there is no reason to think he won't be even better next year.
