The fight for the NBA scoring championship is heating up. Steph Curry and Bradley Beal are both tossing haymakers on the court, and as of now, the Golden State Warriors’ star’s 31.9 points per game narrowly edge out the Washington Wizards’ ace’s 31.4 points per game. As we hit the final week of the regular season, it’s one of the most compelling reasons to watch football.
One of Curry’s teammates threw some shade at Beal off the court, which did not go down well. Warriors wing Kent Bazemore said during a press conference on Monday that Curry has been so strong that “we got guys hurting hamstrings to keep up,” referring to Bradley Beal, who is out for the next two games with a hamstring strain.
Beal, of course, missed Monday’s Wizards game against the Atlanta Hawks, and while he watched, he apparently learned about this and decided to call Bazemore out.
After asking Twitter how he should respond to this, Beal decided to go off, calling Bazemore a “straight lame” and tweeted a clown gif at him.
Beal isn’t normally someone to publicly go at someone quite like this, so we can assume that this didn’t sit well with him. Unfortunately, we don’t have a Warriors-Wizards game before the season ends, so we can’t see Beal and Curry (and also Bazemore) address this on the court.
