Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal thinks he was snubbed from the NBA All-Star game. However, Hall of Famer Charles Barkley believes players such as Beal and Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine weren’t snubbed since their teams are terrible.
Well, Beal saw Barkley’s comment and responded with a pretty savage tweet:
But you made it and didn’t make the play…nvm 🤦🏽♂️ lol https://t.co/Gs5v9sPdKH

Last season, Beal became just the fourth player in NBA history to record at least 2,000 points, 400 rebounds and 400 assists in a season and not earn All-NBA honors. The bad luck for Beal has continued this season, as he’s the first player since 1985 to average over 28.0 points per game and not make the NBA All-Star team.
Interestingly, Beal said a few weeks ago coaches and players should have a higher percentage of NBA All-Star votes than the fans. The Wizards star finished second in the player vote.
Beal signed a two-year, $72 million contract extension with the Wizards before the season started, and he is now guaranteed $130 million over four seasons. The sharpshooter’s new deal with Washington contains a player option for the 2022-2023 season, and he would be eligible to sign a five-year, $266 million contract with the team in the summer of 2022 if he declines that option.
In 46 games this season, Bradley Beal is averaging 29.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists. However, the Wizards are only 20-33 on the campaign and are in the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
