Kent Bazemore tried to make a little joke on Monday and received a massive backlash for that. The Golden State Warriors player showed his support to teammate Stephen Curry, praising him for scoring 49 points in just 29 minutes of action. Moreover, he said other players are getting injured to try to keep up with the sharpshooter.
"49 points in 29 minutes, that’s unreal. We got guys hurting hamstrings to keep up."
As you can imagine, that didn't sit well with Beal, who replied to Bazemore in a big way, calling him 'lame' while seemingly taking a jab at Curry for checking out his numbers.
That wasn't the end of this story since Beal's wife, Kamiah Adams, showed her support for Beal, attacking Bazemore and his numbers, saying he would be tired after dropping all single digits for the Dubs.
"I wouldn’t hold my breath for a response. But hey, maybe after a long night of 8 points, 1 assist, 1 rebound, 6 turnovers and 6 fouls he will have some time."
Bazemore replied to all of this, simply saying he was joking, but it seems like people can't do it anymore.
"I guess you can't joke anymore. I don't know, I feel like I'm a pretty light-hearted guy. I stay on my own line," he said.
This situation escalated really quickly, and now the scoring title race is hotter than ever. Beal and Curry are going toe-to-toe for that honor. Now that Bazemore fueled this situation, we're ready to see these two stars going at it.
Both Warriors and Wizards are probably going to be apart of the play-in tournament, and their stars will try to do everything to lead them to the playoffs. It's tough to see them clashing in the Finals, but Beal and Curry's duel is very entertaining.
