The full rosters for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game were announced yesterday and the debates were on from that point of who was snubbed. Two of the popular choices were Suns Guard Devin Booker and Wizards Guard Bradley Beal.
Beal has had an amazing season for himself despite his Wizards’ 16-31 record. He’s averaging 28 points, four rebounds, and six assists per game. His fiancée, Kamiah Adams, appeared on the Wizards’ postgame show after their 121-107 win over the Hornets to rant about the snub. In the win, Beal posted 34 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists.
Adams brought up Beal’s averages and added how he’s sixth in scoring in the NBA and third in the East. She acknowledged that the Wizards haven’t been good but it shouldn’t take away how well he’s been playing. This is a great point considering the fact that people want to discredit the amazing year that Trae Young is having in Atlanta despite the Hawks being near the bottom of the East.
Speaking of Young, Adams wanted to try to throw shade at him getting in as an All-Star starter by saying she doesn’t take away anything from his game but he’s playing “cherry-picking basketball.” Young used to play against Beal’s AAU team.
Adams continued to rant on how the All-Star voting is skewed and that it’s all a joke, politics, and who has the most popularity on social media. She even thinks Beal has outplayed every reserve player on both the East and West. She makes a very great case for why Beal should be an all-star but the Trae Young comments were unnecessary. In what way is Beal not playing “cherry-picking basketball?”
