Familiarity doesn’t always breed friendship, and that’s something Washington Wizards stars John Wall and Bradley Beal are hoping to finally smooth over heading into this season. Though they’ve been paired together since Beal’s rookie season of 2012, Wall and Beal admit they haven’t exactly found common ground yet.
“I think a lot of times we have a tendency to dislike each other on the court. … We’ve got to be able to put that to the side,” Wall, the 2010 No. 1 overall pick, told Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic. “If you miss somebody on one play or don’t have something go right … as long as you come to each other and talk. If I start arguing with somebody I’m cool. I’m just playing basketball.” Beal agreed with the root of the pair’s problem.
