Washington Wizards star shooting guard Bradley Beal responded to a story ripping Major League Baseball and one of the bidders looking to own the New York Mets, a race the NBA's leading scorer has entered recently.

The article from the New York Daily News described Steve Cohen, a notorious hedge fund manager, as a “deeply problematic character who should have every New Yorker concerned about the future of the Mets.”

Needless to say, the Wizards star agrees with this sentiment, pouring a little more salt in the wound:

“We finally have a society paying attention to race, discrimination and injustice. And now that there’s a chance to sell the Mets to bidders of color, MLB wants to give instead to Steve Cohen — a billionaire with a long track record of shady dealings?” asked Beal in a recent tweet.

The New York Daily News didn't go lightly on Cohen, who has  a long track record of misconduct and creating a hostile environment:

“A quick look at Mr. Cohen’s career raises red flag after red flag. In 2013, his firm, SAC Capital Advisors, pleaded guilty to multiple counts of insider trading and fraud before agreeing to pay $1.8 billion in fines for their malpractice. In the wake of that investigation, the world also learned of SAC’s toxic work culture amid reports of extremely disturbing workplace sexual harassment. Even his latest venture, Point72 Asset Management, has been accused of hostility to women.”

Beal was listed among a large group of athletes and celebrities headlined by Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez looking to buy the Mets. Others like former NFL linebacker Brian Urlacher and Nuggets center Mason Plumlee are among the mix.

Beal isn't the type to take down his opponents with hostility, but clearly Cohen's track record has struck a chord with him.
