I really think Brad Beal is going to be a superstar. He's has great potential even though he was injured most of the season i really like what i've seen from him. here's some of his game highlights
His shooting stroke is like perfect and he's a good rebounder he needs to work on his defense but i really like his future and playing with John Wall who i also think could be a top 5 pg in a few years helps too
I'm a HUGE fan of Beal's game too! The initial Ray Allen comparisons weren't far off, and I think as early as 2014-15 he will be a 20ppg + scorer. I think his basement is Eric Gordon (Very nice basement to have), and his ceiling is Allen in the Bucks-Sonics days.
So his basement is a top 5 SG in the league? Gordon had a bad year this year, but, when healthy is far better than Beal. Sure, Beal will certainly improve as his career goes on, but to say his basement is a Eric Gordon is way premature.
I think actually Gordon is worst case scenario (not a knock on Gordon by any means) and actually the most likely scenario. I think they both will have very similar careers.
I don't see the superstar potential. There are only a handful of superstars in the league. They're the players who can carry a franchise. Beal has all the makings of a very solid player, but I think he's too reliant on others creating opportunities for him and he's not good enough at creating to be considered someone with superstar potential. 3/4 of his made buckets were assisted.
I don't know about superstar, but him and John Wall are an incredibly promising young backcourt. Really like the way they play together, Washington's future looks bright if they can draft a good big man this year (which there are plenty off in their range)
He actually kind of reminds me of McLemore a little bit, as far as having a beautiful shot, athleticism, but not great at being able to create their own shot. I think they'll both be really good players, not superstars but potential all-stars.
of Beal, he may be a good athlete but he isn't nearly as athletic Mclemore. Ben can throw down an alley oop receiving the ball from an inbound pass. As nice as Beal is he can't do that, especially not as effortlessly as Mclemore can.
That's a good point. McLemore is more athletic and bigger.
John Wall makes him look better, no knock to Beal at all, but if he has a good PG he will flourish.
