Beal thinks fan All-Star vote is "terrible" and their share should be reduced


All-Star voting has ended, and we know our starters. Luka, Harden, Kawhi, AD, and LeBron are in from the Western Conference, while Kemba, Trae, Siakam, Giannis, and Embiid will be representing the Eastern Conference. Not everyone is happy with the result, and some of them see the problem in fans voting. When I say someone, I mean Bradley Beal. Let's see how the fans voted.


When Tacko Fall and Alex Caruso get more votes than you, I guess being a bit salty is OK. Beal has been playing tremendous basketball in the past few years and is one of the best guards in the East. His problem is, he's been doing it in a Washington Wizards jersey. That's where Bradley sees the cause of his 9th place. Tacko and Caruso play in Boston and LA, he doesn't.

“We respect our fans, but there are a lot of people out there that don't know the game. We also know there's a lot of people who have favorite players and don't watch everybody else. I don't have that. For me, it's kind of an unfair advantage.”

Beal signed a two-year extension with the Wizards making him unavailable for trades this season, so we know he won't be joining one of those markets any time soon. The All-Star Game is a fan event, so the fan vote has the most significant impact on the starting rosters - 50%. Beal thinks it's too much.

I feel like fans should have a smaller percentage of the vote. They have 50%, that's a bit much.
