Bradley Beal ‘pissed off’ at NBA All-Star snub

first_imgBradley Beal could not hide his anger over being snubbed in the NBA All-Star selection process.The two-time All-Star was overlooked as the reserve list was revealed Thursday. The Wizards guard joined Suns star Devin Booker as a notable absentee. When asked about the matter following the Wizards’ 121-107 win over the Hornets, Beal did not hold back.NBA ALL-STARS: Full list of starters, reserves for 2020 game”I’m a little pissed off about it,” he told NBC Sports Washington. “I know how I am, [so] I was kind of expecting it, honestly.”It’s disrespectful, but the real ones know [I’m an All-Star]. I’ll just keep competing. I’m going to try to get my team in the playoffs for sure.”Beal’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, jumped to Beal’s defense, citing the player’s loyalty to the Wizards after he signed a new deal before the season.”It’s just very frustrating and disappointing for a guy to put up historic numbers, and he made the conscious decision this summer to stay the course and to play his heart out with great leadership to build something in Washington, as opposed to jumping ship to take an easier path,” Bartelstein told ESPN. The statistics show Beal has a strong case to have been included, with his average of 28.7 points per game putting him sixth overall. He beat that average against the Hornets, putting up 34 points, with nine rebounds and nine assists. Beal’s fiancee, Kamiah Adams, cited those stats in an angry appearance on the Wizards’ postgame show Thursday. She also took offense at Hawks guard Trae Young being an All-Star selection.”It’s a joke to me. Not taking away from [Young’s] game. I’ve been watching him since he was in AAU when Brad’s AAU team used to play against him, but he’s playing cherry-picking basketball,” Adams said, per a transcript tweeted by The Athletic.last_img read more
