Bradley Beal is super excited to have Paul Pierce as a teammate with the Washington Wizards. Beal was in Las Vegas taking in some summer league action when he was asked about the brash veterans addition.
Beal didn’t mince any words when he stated that Pierce’s addition was something the Wizards needed.
Beal on Pierce: "He has that little cockiness & arrogance that we need, & that little smack-talking that I can probably learn from as well."

Beal elaborated more on the mentality that makes Pierce Special.
“I was actually in D.C.—I was in St. Louis and then I went to D.C. for a couple days to workout. It was unfortunate that we lost (Trevor) Ariza, but we got another great guy in Paul Pierce. He’s experienced, he’s won a championship before, so he has that mentality and that killer instinct that I think we need on our team. He has that little cockiness and arrogance that we need, and that little smack-talking that I can probably learn from as well. I’m definitely looking forward to playing with him and learning a lot of things.”
