Good for Bradley Beal

Although you may have missed it with all the attention directed at the seemingly out-of-nowhere Kevin Durant trade request but Bradley Beal agreed to remain with the Washington Wizards by agreeing to a 5-year, $251 million contract. Many in the professional peanut gallery , ask the mainstream sports media derided Beal’s decision, sting that the three-time All-Star should have bolted to a more ready-made contender, rather that opting to secure the bag. This sentiment once again puts the deranged, delusional mindset of not only the gasbags of the sports media…

As I said in one of our previous NBA articles, I set my expectations for the early part of this season as rather low. Expanding furthers on that point was not only that I anticipated a lower quality level of play due to the truncated off and preseason but also to not be surprised if several prominent players do not take the court for more than 60 or so games.

from Sam Quinn of cbssports.com: Russell Westbrook may want out of Houston, but his enormous contract has made finding a trade destination difficult. John Wall is in a similar situation.
