Staff Reports NBA Latest News

Responding to reports of him and Bradley Beal not getting along, John Wall says he and his Wizards co-star make each other better.

While guesting on a recent episode of All The Smoke with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Wall explained that the two stars compliment each other on the court, and make the Wizards a better team.

“Ain’t no John Wall without Bradley Beal. Ain’t no Bradley Beal without John Wall,” Wall said. “We make each other better” (starting at 4:54):

“You got two talented young guys, man. One guy that’s been there before. The other one that’s the franchise guy. And another guy that come in that’s just as talented, just younger. We kind of already meshed like… We both want to be stars, we both want to take game-winning shots, we both want to be talked about in the media, we both want to be all this and all that.

“But at the end of the day, they always say, Well, they don’t like each other. They downgrading each other. Ain’t no John Wall without Bradley Beal. Ain’t no Bradley Beal without John Wall. We make each other better. We compliment each other so well on the court that it works easy for us.

“So when I see the media trying to say, They don’t like each other, or he playing better without him. The team’s eating, everybody’s moving the ball, all this. Well, at the end of the day, yeah, you’re going to play better when another star player’s not out there because you get more shots. Everybody’s going to give you the ball more. Everything’s predicated around you.

“We wasn’t winning games, so it wasn’t good for us. Brad was like, Yeah, I’m getting my numbers, I’m doing this, I’m doing that. But we’re not winning games.”
