Just another reason why Wizards fans love their backcourt duo.
John Wall, who is still recovering from an Achilles tear, wasn’t going to let that stop him from making a difference in his community. Both Wall and Bradley Beal have kids and they don’t want them to grow up being afraid of police just because of the color of their skin.
Beal and the Wizards will be partaking in the “bubble” games in Orlando, Florida. Washington is in ninth place in the East and will battle it out with the Brooklyn Nets and Orlando Magic for the final two playoff spots.
Unfortunately, the Wizards will be playing without Wall since he wants to play it safe and return in 2020-21. The only way Washington will shock the world and reach the 2020 postseason is if Beal turns into Superman and goes nuclear down in Florida.
Before the season was suspended, Beal was averaging 30.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.1 assists for the Wizards. The two-time All-Star was also shooting 45.5 percent from the field, 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 84.2 percent from the free-throw line.
The “bubble” games will start on July 30. Until then, Wizards players will continue to use their platform to instill change in America.
