Wizards’ Bradley Beal jokes about improving his ‘acting skills’ to sell fouls
Whether fans like it or not, flopping is a part of basketball in today’s modern NBA. Of course, the league has done what they can to curb the issue, but no matter what, players are going to sell fouls in any way they can.
After the game between the Wizards and the New York Knicks on Tuesday, Beal admitted that when he sprawls out on the court after being fouled, it’s half due to exhaustion and partly due to some theatrics.
“I definitely got to shore up my acting skills. I’m trying to look for some roles this summer. Any movies or shows you guys [know] – hit me,” Bradley Beal said per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.
A little bit of theatrics helped Washington pick up their second win in the last three games after they handled the Knicks, 122-115.
In the game, the 6-foot-3 shooting guard scored 40 points while adding seven assists and three rebounds to his stat line for the Wizards.
“At the end of the day, what helps me and what helps us as a team, is when we have fun. We enjoy each other. We play for one another. We hold each other accountable but we still enjoy the game,” Beal added.
Since the All-Star break, Beal has been one of the hottest players in the NBA as he tries to push the ninth-seeded Wizards to a playoff berth.
