While Washington Wizards star guard Bradley Beal won’t be in this year’s all-star contest, there’s plenty of good times to look back on.
There’s almost too much to say about how Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal won’t be playing in Sunday’s NBA all-star game. Like, how about for instance that he’s averaging 29.1 points, the most of a non all-star ever in the NBA.
Bradley Beal will officially head into the All-Star break averaging 29.1 points per game, the most ever for a non All-Star.

Or the fact that he’s averaging career highs in points, assists, free throw attempts, and free throw percentage. A guy that was named an all-star in 2018 and again in 2019. That same guy.
Or how about the fact that he’s playing on a team whose second best player has possibly been Davis Bertans or Ish Smith? Sure, their record hasn’t been great, but they’re out playing preseason expectations in many ways and they simply don’t have a lot of NBA-ready talent on the team.
And the injuries. Oh god, the injuries. But let’s let sleeping dogs lie, shall we?
The fact remains that he won’t be representing your Washington Wizards on Sunday at the United Center in Chicago, but we all know he deserves it. But the best we can do here at Wizard of Awes is give you the five best all-star moments from Bradley Beal’s career, because why should you be robbed of one of the league’s best players this weekend like everyone else?
Here they are, for the realest fans in the league to enjoy, in reverse order from his 5th best moment to his best moment at an all-star weekend ever.
