Beyond The Buzzer:
Derrick Rose’s teammates were nothing but supportive of his decision to sit out the entire season after suffering an ACL injury but Wizards rookie guard, Bradley Beal, admitted in an interview with LaVar and Dukes on 106.7 The Fan that he’d lose respect for one of his teammates if they made the same decision.
According to Sarah Kogod, The Washington Post (h/t Pro Basketball Talk):
When asked how he’d feel if a Wizards teammate made the same decision, Beal had to admit he’d lose some respect for that player.
“A little bit. Yeah, I would,” he said. “The type of player he is, and the mentality and competitiveness that he has, I think he would have gave it a go. I don’t know what was holding him back. I think he’s scared it’s probably going to happen again and he won’t be the same. But you’re never the same after an injury. But you just have to fight through it and do something else to be able to impact the game. I’m not sure what it is he has to do. I really can’t speak for him.”
