People were too high on him coming up to the draft and then were way too quick to throw him under the bus when he was struggling early in the season. I think he's a good player with a very bright future.
To me the criticism Beal's gotten has been unfair when you consider he's coming in a 19 year old rookie, been pretty much starting since day 1 with Wall and Nene being out to start the season. Doesn't help that the Wizards have had Jannero Pargo, AJPrice, and Jordan Crawford run the point in Wall's absence . Beal's finally looking confident out there and just in time for Wall's return, hopefully this week.
He's going to be good, but not the star or next Ray Allen that people expected.
He will still be a good player, he just needs time to develop. Two years ago he was playing HS ball, now he is playing against Kobe, Wade, Ray Allen, Joe Johnson, Rip Hamilton, Monta Ellis, Harden etc.
In his past 5 games he is averaging 18ppg, 42% fg, 56% 3's
