Bradley beal explains why kent bazemores comments angered him

    The raw beef between Warriors Wing Kent Bazemore and Washington Wizards Star Guard Bradley Beal continued into Tuesday morning when Beal joined ESPN’s “First Take.”

    “I didn’t like that. I didn’t like the last part of the comment,” Beal said. “The first half of what steph was doing was – i’m with you… 49 in 29 minutes is… i think everyone here can agree that it’s extraordinary and truly amazing. so no one argues with that. but i don’t i didnt mention you my hamstrings have nothing to do with the way i go out there and play the game for me to injure my hamstrings and for you to kind of make a joke about it i dont take it too fondly honestly. because I’m proud to be someone who for the first four years was always labeled as an injury-prone guy. I was labeled as someone who couldn’t stay on the ground.

    “Forty-nine points in 29 minutes, that’s unreal,” Bazemore said after the team’s shooting practice Monday morning. “We have guys who strain their hamstrings to keep up.”

    Bazemore was referring to Beal’s left hamstring injury during Washington’s overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday. Beal scored 50 points in the win, but left early due to injury.

    what bazemore felt was a good-natured joke resulted in a twitter storm from kamiah adams-beal, bradley’s wife, and later the wizards star.

    Following the Warriors’ win over the Utah Jazz on Monday night, Bazemore went to great lengths to tell his side of the story.

    “I guess you can’t joke around anymore,” Bazemore told reporters on a video conference call. “Whatever. I don’t know, man, I feel like I’m a pretty light-hearted guy. I stay in my own lane. I don’t say things to mess up. Hey, if you want to know where my allegiance is, it’s to [Steph Curry]. whoever goes after him, it’s going to be tough. whatever.

    when asked if he would approach beal, it seems that bazemore has no plans to do so.

    “There’s really nothing to explain,” Bazemore said. “I was laughing, joking, I half said it. It’s not like I said. I hope he does. It’s out now. I don’t wish him anything bad. It was just a comment. It’s the kind of world you’re living in right now, a little sensitive, sore little palm calling me.whatever.

    “keep up the punches, keep your head down, move on. it’ll probably happen tomorrow. I’ll wake up and everything will be the same again. I don’t have time for all that twitter crap.”
