Wizards star Bradley Beal speaks out on playing with John Wall again
Wall missed the entire 2019-20 season for the Wizards recovering from his Achilles tear. Multiple videos have shown the Wizards point guard dunking in workouts and looking really explosive, so Washington fans are looking forward to seeing Beal and Wall wreaking havoc together on the league again next season:
“Oh man, I’m beyond excited. I’m not going to lie,” Bradley Beal said Sunday afternoon on NBC Sports Washington about playing with John Wall again.
“I’m more happy for him than anything because he gets to get back on the floor. He hasn’t been on the floor in a long time. For him to be able to get his place of peace, his muse back and his love and joy back, I think that will be great. I’m definitely looking forward to just us together.
“With where I’ve taken my game to him being a five-time All-Star, we can really grow our team and our young stars that we have in the making. I’m excited and I know the fans are too. It can’t come any faster.”
Wall averaged 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game for the Wizards in 2018-19 while shooting 44.4 percent from the field, 30.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line. He underwent season-ending heel surgery and then tore his Achilles after falling at his house.
In 57 games in 2019-20 before the season was suspended, Beal put up 30.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game for the Wizards. He is one of the best shooting guards in the NBA, so no matter how rusty Wall is next season, the Wizards should at least be playoff contenders again with Beal and Wall leading the charge as a duo.
