Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal is the first player in franchise history to score at least 2,000 points, grab 4,000 rebounds and dish out 4,000 assists in a season.
Wizards All-Star point guard John Wall has been out since December, so Beal has been the No. 1 option on offense for Washington.
The sharpshooter has been playing at a superstar level all season and the numbers show it.

This is a tremendous accomplishment for Bradley Beal, who has firmly established himself as one of the top shooting guards in the NBA.
The Wizards may be missing the playoffs this season, but it doesn't take away from how special Beal has been all year.
Entering Wednesday, Beal was averaging 26.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game while shooting 47.6 percent from the field, 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free-throw line. The two-time All-Star came into Wednesday with 11 double-doubles and two triple-doubles.
It's a shame we won't get to see Beal play in the postseason. He did everything he could to lead the Wizards, but the Missouri native just didn't have enough help around him with Wall out.
Beal could make his first All-NBA team this season. He if he does, the Wizards can offer him the super-max extension.
