Florida guard Bradley Beal, who played one year with the Gators, will be a lottery pick later this month, but many evaluators think he can go as high as No. 2 overall to the Charlotte Bobcats.
If his actual game is anything like his self-evaluation, well, the Bobcats won’t cry about the NBA fixing the … er … losing the lottery to the New Orleans Hornets.
Check out Beal’s comments, according to a local CBS radio station in Charlotte. Click on the link below for the audio:
“I’m an all-around player. I love to get my teammates involved. Comparing myself to somebody else, the way I shoot, I shoot similarly to Ray Allen. And when I drive to the basket, I like to compare myself to Dwyane Wade because we have the same body type or whatever. I like to compare myself to those two guys.”
That’s right, Beal compared himself as a shooter to Allen, the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-pointers made, and as a driver to Wade, who is an all-time great whose strength is going to the bucket.
That’s high a pretty high bar to set for yourself. But even if it’s all true, New Orleans still is taking Anthony Davis.
