Wizards’ Bradley Beal doesn’t regret naming his son Bradley Beal Jr.
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal has two kids and one of them is named Bradley Beal Jr.
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has talked about how he regrets naming his son LeBron James Jr. considering the challenges that come with it.
While Beal understands what James is talking about, the Wizards star doesn’t regret naming his son after him.
“I think about it now only because Deuce looks more like his mom versus me, so Braylon, the second born, looks more like me. So, I wish I could switch that,” Beal told Fred Katz of The Athletic.
“But at the end of the day, no. It’s like when you look at it, it’s like ah, I can understand where LeBron is coming from. It’s just automatic pressure of just knowing who your dad is and you have his name. It’s like, OK, you have big shoes to fill. But at the same time, as a dad, that’s a proud moment for you more or less of just knowing that your name carries on forever and that he has a legacy that he can now start as well and continue.”
The Wizards just signed Gary Payton II, the son of Hall of Famer Gary Payton. He played on Monday against the New York Knicks and finished with 10 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and six steals to help the Wizards defeat the Knicks by six points.
Beal, as usual, was stellar. He scored 30 points. The two-time All-Star is now averaging 28.3 points per game on the season for the Wizards, who are 9-20.
