Just a few days ago, the shocking news came down that the Houston Rockets were trading Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for John Wall and a first-round pick.
On Friday afternoon, Bradley Beal shared his thoughts on the move.
While the Wizards did land themselves a former MVP in Westbrook, it sounds like Beal took a shot at the organization.
“It’s been an emotional week,” Beal told reporters. “Definitely been some tough 24, 48, 72 hours here, just kind of letting it all seep in and realizing that your brother is no longer here with you no more. He’s off to something better.”
It almost sounds as if Beal is saying Wall is better off with Houston than Washington.
The Wizards haven’t been out of the second round of the playoffs since the 1970’s. The franchise has been to the postseason just 4 times since 2008.
The Rockets, on the other hand, have been to the postseason the last eight years and to the Conference Finals twice.
