Bradley Beal is currently a professional basketball player, but he was also one of the best high school players in the country. A new widening video shows the Washington Wizards star trying to cheer up a group of high school players, and Armchair Athlete Twitter dared to chastise Beal.

Washington-area filmmaker Jeff Garvin shared a video on social media of him talking to a group of young players who apparently lost a lead in the game. Beal, 28, gives youngsters solid advice on being a team player and playing together instead of seeking individual glory.

The refusal of some people online is laughable considering Beal’s resume. Beal was a 2011 McDonald’s All-American, First-Team Parade All-American, and was also Gatorade Player of the Year. During his year at the University of Florida, Beal was first-team All-SEC. Now scoring 22 points in the NBA, Beal tells the kids in the video that scoring isn’t the only way to impact the game. Solid advice from an offensive wizard, no pun intended.

Despite this, the criticism Beal has faced online is due to the fact that he is part of an NBA team that has not won a championship since 1978 and has won a division title for the last times in 2017. That said, few people go from high school to pros at any level. of the sport, so it’s fair to say that Beal knows what’s going on.

Beal is often the subject of frequent trade talks and almost any NBA team that needs a great scorer would love to have him on their team. All signs point to Beal re-signing with Washington, and he’s still in his prime. Based on the video below, Beal has a future as a man on the sidelines helping guide players.

Tribute to Bradley Beal for his service to the game. Presumably Beal was talking to his Brad Beal Elite AAU team in the clip.
