Is Beal for Real?
Bradley Beal has exploded since John Wall returned to the Washington Wizards leading many fantasy owners and fanalysts to ponder whether or not Beal can keep up his pace.
Yes, he can.
Beal was always destined to do better with a superior backcourt mate who could space the floor, command defensive attention and get Beal the ball where he needs it to be at his most effective.
Beal has averaged a whopping 19.6 points in the three games since John Wall has returned to the WIzards and 18.8 points in 8 january games.
Some will say that Jordan Crawford being hurt has led to his increased production but the truth is Beal has finally found his shot and the game appears to be slowing down for him as he is now shooting a respectable .463 from the field after going .250, .341, .368 over the first three months of the season.
Beal is currently available in only 34 percent of Yahoo! leagues but he is someone who should now be owned in every competitive league.
Jordan Crawford will eat some of his minutes when healthy but will be employed in a sixth man role.
Beal has all-star potential and John Wall is the perfect catalyst to bring that potential to bear.
Beal is for real!
