Default Will Bradley Beal be anything more than a streak shooter in this league?

I hear people saying he's a great shooter but he's not. Reports out of Washington are already saying his shot isn't falling.

If you think he's a great shooter, what evidence do you have to back your point?

I think he's really overrated and has benefited greatly from being perceived as a "mild mannered, good kid with a good head on his shoulders." He'll probably be a career starter in the league, but I highly doubt you'll ever see him in an NBA all-star game.

I can't say for sure, tho he can obviously rebound.



But is the question genuine, or is this Dion Waiters related?

i put a lot of stock into looking the part, and i think bradley beal does look the part of a very good nba player




not to mention the fact that i just realized we have the same tattoo

the "family" tattoo you see above on his arm, flip it over and it turns into "forever."

(andy rautins also has this tattoo which is where i got the idea)

He played out of position a lot in college so it's kinda hard to predict how he'll play.

Coming from the same guy who thought Kyrie Irving would be a huge failure. Just because you're the one saying it I'll say Bradley Beal >>>> Dion Waiters

Dion waiters >>> bradley beal for me. Call it intuition. Or the fact that waiters game is more dynamic than beal's.

There's a 99.999% chance this is a Dion Waiters agenda driven thread.

tough to say anything about any of the rookies at this point. I think if Beal would have fallen to the cavs they still would have taken waiters because he is more dynamic, but its up in the air right now who is going to be the overall better pro.

beal seems to have a great bball iq, great looking shooting stroke, that hopefully actually translates better in the nba than it did in college.

he seems like a 20-5-5 good defenss kinda guy. hes just so under control when he plays.

Default Re: Will Bradley Beal be anything more than a streak shooter in this league?

Just stepping aside from the obvious REAL point of this thread... Which, as always, is to promote a Cavs' player (Waiters) through a weak diversion and, in the process, try to make people hate us...

I do think Beal will be a nice player in the league. Will he be an elite superstar on par with the best in the league? Sort of doubt that, but a really key piece on a really good team? Yeah, I think he could be that.

Whether he makes All-Star Games or All-Pro lists is immaterial, because a lot of that will depend on what other guards are doing around the league...

Since this was created really as a Beal vs. Waiters thing, I'll end with this...

I think Beal was the far safer pick of the two and I'm confident, at the very least, he will be a good starter in the NBA. I think Dion has a lower floor, but I also think he has a higher ceiling. I don't think there are a lot of 2s coming out of college every year with his first step and ability to finish at the basket.

So, I can't blame the Cavs for swinging for the fences. It looked all along as if the Cavs were trying to desperately get their hands on Beal, but all of the reporting since the draft says their big board actually went like this...

1. Davis
2. MKG/Waiters

...and that Byron Scott personally pleaded with management to get him this player. It would have been interesting to see what would have happened if both Waiters and MKG were on the board at 4. Something tells me they may have still gone with Waiters... Again, just based on the reporters, specifically Windy's article immediately following the draft when he was imbedded in their draft war room.


So, the Cavs liked Waiters better than Beal. The Wizards obviously fell in love with Beal during his workouts. We'll see which franchise was correct.
