For not only can the Washington Wizards superstar unleash thunderous slams, but he drops slick dimes like this with ease, too. Watch Wall turn on the jets and get ahead of the Utah Jazz before flipping a behind-head pass to Bradley Beal for a swished three-pointer. Read More »

Video: Dirk Nowitzki Rolls Ankle, Then Comes Back To Hit Clutch 3 In Mavs Win

Dirk Nowitzki

With a shade under eight minutes to play in last night’s Wizards-Mavericks game at the Verizon Center in DC, Bradley Beal — in his first game of the season, after returning from injury — knocked down another three-pointer to give the Wizards an 85-84 advantage. At the same time, Dirk Nowitzki rolled his ankle on the back of Kris Humphries‘ foot. Dirk would leave, but the all-time leader in points scored by a foreign-born player would return and show why he’s a champion and future Hall of Famer. Read More »

Report: Bradley Beal Could Play On Wednesday Versus Mavericks

Bradley Beal

If the season’s first three weeks of play has told us anything about the Washington Wizards, it’s that they can still be successful at less than full strength. Just imagine how good they could be, then, once star shooting guard Bradley Beal returns to the court. According to Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post, the 21 year-old could make his 2014-2015 debut on Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks. Read More »

The Top 20 Shooting Guards In The NBA Right Now

James Harden, Klay Thompson

The NBA is a point guard driven league. Look at personnel on the top teams in the Association. With just a couple exceptions, the best teams in the league have stellar point guard play. After the point guard position, the power forward position is emerging as the deepest talent pool in the league.

What’s been lost in the NBA is great play from the shooting guard position. Having a great shooting guard isn’t a necessity anymore. Just look at the San Antonio Spurs for proof. Gregg Popovich used a platoon of players at the shooting guard position last year, and none of them are superstars anymore. Danny Green is an elite three-point shooter, Manu Ginobili is past his prime but still a crafty offensive weapon, and Marco Belinelli can shoot it with the best of them, but struggles in other facets of the game. None of those guys – at least at this point in their careers – could carry the offense alone. Read More »

Dion Waiters, Bradley Beal

The rivalry for which we pined earlier today is already developing. Responding to Dion Waiters calling Bradley Beal’s boasts of the Washington Wizards having the league’s best backcourt “nonsense,” John Wall fired back with even greater aplomb. Read More »

Dion Waiters On Bradley Beal’s Best Backcourt Talk: “That’s Nonsense”

Dion Waiters

There’s a fine line between confidence and hubris. The great players routinely toe it, careful not to cross and fall victim to the pitfalls of brash and outright arrogance. Dion Waiters isn’t and he doesn’t, two realities that led to him butting heads with Kyrie Irving and the rest of his teammates in a toxic Cleveland Cavaliers locker room over the past two years. But Waiters maintains he has a new attitude this season, and is primed for big things on the court given that new maturation and a summer of diligent training. For his pointed dig at the Washington Wizards’ John Wall and Bradley Beal to hold weight, though, Waiters will need to do far more than say all of the right things. Read More »
