"I've Been S----y All Year", Bradley Beal Speaks About Washington Wizards Season

The Washington Wizards were dismantled Saturday night by the Utah Jazz to the tune of a 123-98 loss on home court. After starting a scorching 10-3, the Washington Wizards have now dropped 9 of the last 14 games bringing their record to 15-12, good enough for 7th in the ultra-competitive Eastern Conference.

The team's recent struggles have brought into question several aspects of the team and a recent question to Wizards star Bradley Beal about the inconsistency of teammates Montrezl Harrell and Spencer Dinwiddie earned a blunt response from Beal. “In all fairness, I've been s----y all year. So, I'm not going to sit here and talk about two other guys who have really been helping our team out, I'll put that on me before them. I have to be better, I have to lead better, I have to produce and lead this team like I want to.”

Beal is currently shooting a career-worst 26.3% from three and his 22.5 points per game is his lowest total since the 2015-2016 season, a season where he only played 55 games and shared the floor with a prime John Wall. Beal’s 3.5 turnovers per game are also a cause for concern as the former league scoring champ currently ranks 10th worst in the league in turnover ratio.

Beal went on to say he was okay with committing turnovers as long as he is staying aggressive on the offensive end but Wizards Head Coach Wes Unseld Saw this situation a bit differently, “He's aware of it, we've talked about it. Some of is the pressure teams put on him, they double him, they hit and they blitz, but sometimes it's just I think careless. Sometimes it's playing in a crowd, trying to overdribble and do too much. It's not because he's selfish, he's trying to make a play.”

Here’s hoping for a return to form for Beal and the Wizards as the NBA season pushes through its third month and ever closer to the playoffs. Watch some of Beal’s best moments below.
