Bradley Beal's First Statement After Missing Out on All-NBA Team Shows His Class and Maturity

The All-NBA teams are out for the 2019-20 season and fans are going mad over the Washington Wizards star being snubbed. Bradley Beal has been overlooked by the voters once again.

Earlier this season, Beal was snubbed from his third all-star selection even though he was averaging astronomical numbers. Brad finished the season averaging 30.5 points per game while shooting 45% from the field.

Although the Wizards missed the playoffs, it was not due to a lack of effort by the 27-year-old. In fact, Beal’s surge of offense was the only good thing for Wizard’s poor season. Being ignored by the voters for an All-NBA team would be very disheartening for any player.

But Beal proved that he is not only a great player but a human being as well. Beal showed off his class by congratulating his close friend Jayson Tatum. Tatum made the All-NBA 3rd team for his efforts in the regular season. He definitely deserves the accolade as he has been instrumental for the Celtics.

While Beal handled the snub valiantly, his wife Kamiah Adams-Beal ranted out following the event. Kamiah called out voters for their decision to left out Beal even after such an amazing season.

Kamiah lashed out and it was clear how upset she was by the decision. Honestly, this reaction was no surprise, considering Beal’s performances all year. Beal’s 30.5 ppg became the third most by a player in NBA history to miss an All-NBA selection, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Twitter Reacts to Bradley Beal missing All-NBA team selection

Apart from Beal’s wife, many fans and analysts felt the same emotion regarding the snub. Twitter was full of fans lashing out on the officials for ignoring Beal’s heroics.

Furthermore, the situation is pretty bad for Beal’s Wizards as a team. With superstar John Wall missing most of the last two seasons, the burden is on Beal’s shoulder. As a matter of fact, Beal welcomed the responsibility with open arms. But there’s only so much a single-player can do for a team.

If John Wall stays healthy in the next season may be the fortunes will turn around for the franchise. But Wall might take some time to get his touch back after missing so many games.

Till then, the Wizards will be Beal’s team unless he demands a trade and compete for a championship with a different team for the remainder of his prime.

Jets Noncompetitive Again feat. Gary Vee

Gang
Gang's All Here Episode 36 Jets podcast
N.Y. Post: Charles Wenzelberg

After falling 31-13 to the 49ers, the Jets look like the worst 0-2 team in the NFL right now. They are the only team in the NFL that has not been competitive in both games this season. To break down what has been a nightmare start to the season, Brian Costello and I bring you a brand new episode of the “Gang’s All Here” podcast. Diehard Jets fan, mogul, author (and his million other titles) Gary Vaynerchuk aka Gary Vee joined us.

I open up the show reacting to the awful football we are watching, where the Jets are getting beat in every facet of the game. Giving up a first down on third-and-31 is unacceptable and a move you couldn’t even pull off in a game of Madden. Coz responds jokingly saying they won the coin toss and Sam Ficken has been making field goals. Outside of that, this team has looked putrid. Their defense has been a trainwreck, quarterbacks have all day to throw the ball and they are giving up long runs left and right. It’s come to the point where you get excited over a 4-yard run. What we are seeing from Sam Darnold and his limited healthy receiving corps has been ugly. Coz says not re-signing Robby Anderson was a huge mistake and they could have had him. We express our concerns with Darnold, who has not progressed so far in his third season.

Entrepreneur, best-selling author, internet personality and rabid Jets fan Gary Vee then joins the show. Vee talks about the frustrations with the team, Darnold not looking any better and where the team is at right now. He talks about Sunday being Quinnen Williams’ best game as a pro, the team falling apart around Darnold and if the Jets should trade the No. 1 pick if they got it. Will Gase be the head coach next season? Vee says the team would have to go 7-9 for him to stick around. Vaynerchuk also gets into being built for this time with everything he does digitally and he gives us his Mount Rushmore of white wines. He also gets into the Jets franchise history and explains why he wants to be the owner of this team in 25 years. He looks at a diehard Jets fan being an owner and how great it would be for the franchise. If the Jets win a Super Bowl before that time though, he says he might shift his focus to owning the Knicks.

Catch up on all episodes of “Gang’s All Here,” a New York Jets podcast, by subscribing to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Follow Coz and Jake on Twitter @BrianCoz and @JakeBrownRadio for updates on the show. The next episode of the podcast drops Thursday.

Week 3 Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Week 3 Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

After last week, there should be some more confidence in projecting which running backs actually move up in PPR formats. As much as projections can be made about top receiving backs, it takes time to actually see who garners targets, especially when there isn’t a preseason. Additionally, injuries are having a major impact at the RB position, so our Week 3 fantasy RB PPR rankings will try to take that into account while balancing carries, targets, and touchdown chances.

This week, Austin Ekeler will be a top-10 back in PPR, as his matchup with the Panthers is excellent, but after losing the carry battle (and, more important, the goal-line carry battle) to teammate Joshua Kelley last week, the rookie is also in play as an RB 2. Kareem Hunt will continue to be highly rated in PPR formats despite Nick Chubb also having plenty of value. The two have been splitting snaps, and the matchup against Washington and their tough defensive line figures to even out the values of the two.

WEEK 3 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Per usual, James White (vs. Raiders), Tarik Cohen (@ Falcons), and D’Andre Swift (@ Cardinals) all move up into flex range because of their pass-catching abilities. The rise of White and Swift push down Sony Michel and Adrian Peterson/Kerryon Johnson since they don’t soak up a lot of targets.

WEEK 3 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Wide receiver |Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

As for some of the injury-impacted backfields, it’s hard to know exactly how the pecking order will shake out. Wayne Gallman and Dion Lewis will battle for playing time, while the Rams, with Cam Akers ailing after a rib injury, could rely more on Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson. Each player could emerge as a decent flex, but knowing the potential carry split will be important as fantasy owners look to make key lineup decisions. The same is true in Buffalo, where Devin Singletary has a little more value than Zack Moss in PPR, but Moss might be more likely to score. 

Jerick McKinnon (@ Giants) is moving up regardless of Raheem Mostert’s status, but he will move up even more if Raheem Mostert (knee) is ruled out. Myles Gaskin (@ Jaguars) is also moving up, but with an unappealing three-headed “monster” in Miami, it’s tough to recommend starting him. The Bucs backfield is also a tough one for PPR owners to figure, as LeSean McCoy is the best pass-catcher, but it seems clear that Leonard Fournette, who was a big receiver last year in Jacksonville, is about to get more playing time. Fortunately, both Fournette and Ronald Jones II can be used against Denver this week.

Week 3 Fantasy RB Rankings: Must starts, sleepers, potential busts at running back

Week 3 Fantasy RB Rankings: Must starts, sleepers, potential busts at running back

Rank Player 1 Derrick Henry, TEN @ MIN 2 Dalvin Cook, MIN vs. TEN 3 Ezekiel Elliott, DAL @ SEA 4 Kenyan Drake, ARZ vs. DET.  The Lions were absolutely gashed by the Packers running backs last week to the tune of 8.0 yards per carry and 72 yards and a TD through the air. They simply don’t stop the run well, and only the Bengals have allowed more than the Lions’ 353 rushing yards. Drake logged 95 total yards against a tough Washington front seven, so he can be trusted as an RB1 in a much more favorable matchup. 5 Jonathan Taylor, IND vs. NYJ.  So much for Taylor and Nyheim Hines splitting touches in Marlon Mack’s absence. Taylor handled 26 carries for the Colts and turned them into 101 yards and a TD against Minnesota’s defensive front. Now, he’ll get to take on a Jets defense that allows 24.7 FPPG to RBs and just let Raheem Mostert scamper untouched for an 80-yard TD on the first play of their Week 2 game. 6 Alvin Kamara, NO vs. GB 7 Austin Ekeler, LAC vs. CAR.  Ekeler has a juicy matchup against a Panthers defense that has allowed three rushing TDs to RBs in each of their first two games of the season after allowing a league-high 27 rushing TDs to the position last year. Ekeler may be splitting carries with Joshua Kelley, who got 23 carries compared to Ekeler’s 16 against the Chiefs, but Ekeler was more efficient (5.8 yards per carry to Kelley’s 2.8) and offers more as a receiver.  8 Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC @ BAL.  Can you trust Edwards-Helaire to bounce back after a middling outing against the Chargers? It won’t be easy against the Ravens, who are tied with the Chargers for the league’s best FPPG to RBs at 9.1, but he should get plenty of opportunities to produce once again. And if the Chiefs can avoid falling behind and give him more than the 10 carries he saw on Sunday, he should be positioned to rack up some yardage. 9 David Montgomery, CHI @ ATL. Atlanta’s defense is allowing an average of 39 points per game to opposing offenses and has allowed the fourth-most catches to RBs (15) and the most receiving TDs (2). Some may think this sounds like a smash spot for Tarik Cohen, but after Montgomery caught three passes for 45 yards and a TD, he may be in for a big game in Week 3. 10 Miles Sanders, PHI vs. CIN.  The Bengals have allowed the most rushing yards to RBs this season (358) and the second-most total TDs (5). Start Sanders, who just racked up 131 total yards and a TD against the Rams, with confidence. 11 Aaron Jones, GB @ NO 12 Josh Jacobs, LV @ NE 13 Nick Chubb, CLE vs. WAS.  Chubb just had a huge game against the Bengals, but two things keep him from being an RB1 against Washington. First, Washington has been great against RBs so far this year and is one of four teams yet to surrender a touchdown to the position as of this writing (the Ravens, Chargers, and Saints are the other three). Second, Kareem Hunt is still the preferred receiving back, so he may see more action in a game where Cleveland could struggle to find running room against Washington’s top-tier defensive line. You can still start Chubb with confidence, just don’t expect another massive game. 14 Joe Mixon, CIN @ PHI.  Mixon is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry and the Eagles are allowing just 3.9 yards per carry. His value will likely depend on scoring a touchdown, but luckily, the Eagles have surrendered three to the RB position, good for third-most in the NFL. 15 James Conner, PIT vs. HOU.  So much for the Benny Snell takeover that looked imminent after Week 1. Conner bounced back against a solid Denver defense and posted 106 yards and a score. He can be trusted against a Houston defense that has allowed 339 rushing yards and the seventh-most RB FPPG (25.1) through two weeks, good for the third-most in the NFL. 16 Melvin Gordon, DEN vs. TB.  The Bucs have allowed the most receiving yards to opposing RBs (168) and the second-most receptions (18). Gordon should continue to serve as the Broncos’ top backfield option with Phillip Lindsay likely out another week, so he can be trusted in a matchup that suits his receiving skills well. 17 Chris Carson, SEA vs. DAL.  Carson continues to be the lead back for the Seahawks and has already racked up three receiving TDs on the year. He can be trusted against a porous Dallas defense that has allowed an average of 110.5 rushing yards and a rushing TD per game. 18 Raheem Mostert, SF @ NYG.  If Mostert plays, he’ll get a chance to take on a Giants defense that is allowing 4.6 yards per carry to opposing RBs. Mostert is averaging 6.4 ypc, so expect him to rip off some more chunk plays depending on his injured knee. 19 Todd Gurley, ATL vs. CHI.  Gurley hasn’t done much yardage-wise through two games, as he has just 117 rushing yards and a single receiving yard. However, he is a TD threat for a very good Falcons offense that should see some red-zone opportunities against a Bears defense that has allowed 4.0 red-zone trips per game to start the season. 20 James Robinson, JAX vs. MIA 21 Mark Ingram, BAL vs. KC 22 Joshua Kelley, LAC vs. CAR 23 David Johnson, HOU @ PIT 24 Kareem Hunt, CLE vs. WAS 25 Antonio Gibson, WAS @ CLE 26 JK Dobbins, BAL vs. KC 27 Leonard Fournette, TB @ DEN 28 Sony Michel, NE vs. LV 29 Dion Lewis, NYG vs. SF 30 Mike Davis, CAR @ LAC. Davis seems like the top candidate to replace Christian McCaffrey who is expected to miss multiple weeks with an ankle injury. This isn’t a good matchup for him, however, as the Chargers have been one of the best defenses against the run and have allowed a league-best 9.1 FPPG to RBs. They have allowed 12 receptions, good for sixth-most in the league, but it’s unclear if Davis will be able to take advantage of that. 31 Cam Akers, LAR @ BUF 32 Zack Moss, BUF vs. LAR 33 Malcolm Brown, LAR @ BUF 34 Frank Gore, NYJ @ IND 35 Ronald Jones II, TB @ DEN 36 Devin Singletary, BUF vs. LAR 37 D’Andre Swift, DET @ ARZ 38 Tarik Cohen, CHI @ ATL 39 Myles Gaskin, MIA @ JAX 40 James White, NE vs. LV 41 Gus Edwards, BAL vs. KC 42 Darrell Henderson, LAR @ BUF 43 Jerick McKinnon, SF @ NYG 44 Jordan Howard, MIA @ JAX 45 Kerryon Johnson, DET @ ARZ 46 Adrian Peterson, DET @ ARZ 47 Wayne Gallman, NYG vs. SF 48 Matt Breida, MIA @ JAX 49 Nyheim Hines, IND vs. NYJ 50 Latavius Murray, NO vs. GB 51 Jamaal Williams, GB @ NO 52 Tevin Coleman, SF @ NYG 53 Carlos Hyde, SEA vs. DAL 54 Chris Thompson, JAX vs. MIA 55 LeSean McCoy, TB @ DEN 56 Boston Scott, PHI vs. CIN 57 Alexander Mattison, MIN vs. TEN 58 Royce Freeman, DEN vs. TB 59 Chase Edmonds, ARZ vs. DET 60 Benny Snell Jr., PIT vs. HOU 61 Darwin Thompson, KC @ BAL 62 Giovani Bernard, CIN @ PHI 63 Tony Pollard, DAL @ SEA 64 Peyton Barber, WAS @ CLE 65 Trenton Cannon, CAR @ LAC 66 Brian Hill, ATL vs. CHI 67 Rex Burkhead, NE vs. LV 68 Corey Clement, PHI vs. CIN 69 La’Mical Perine NYJ @ IND 70 J.D. McKissic, WAS @ CLE 71 Devontae Booker, LV @ NE 72 AJ Dillon, GB @ NO 73 Jalen Richard, LV @ NE
