Wiz star Bradley Beal just got removed from the U. S. Olympic team due to COVID-19.
So he has some extra time on his hands to throw shade at the Sixers Ben Simmons to CBS Sports.com:
“Obviously when Joel [Embiid] got hurt, that was the game that we ended up winning. And we felt like we should have won the next game, but they just wanted it a little bit more than we did. And Joel didn’t even play that game. But at the same time we kind of exposed the move of fouling Ben [Simmons], putting him on the line a few times,” Beal shared.
“Granted, I think in our series he actually made a few. So, we had to go away from that instead of just giving away free points.
“But they [the Wiz and Hawks] were two totally different series, two totally different teams. Ben was more or less aggressive in our series, the first couple games, and then it kind of died down and trickled down from there. Atlanta was a good team, too. They played hard. They have a lot of young pieces over there who are really versatile. They’re not just a one-dimensional team. It was very tough. Joel had to do a lot. “
