Beal is one of the best scorers in the NBA. He certainly had a strong case at receiving a higher rating.
The annual ratings in the video game always cause a bit of a stir, and players sometimes get added motivation if they aren’t satisfied with their grades.
In the 2020-21 season, Beal nearly won the scoring title. He ultimately fell short, but he still posted elite averages of 31.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. He made 48.5 percent of his shots from the field and 34.9 percent of his shots from deep.
Beal will play alongside Spencer Dinwiddie in the 2021-22 season. The two should form an exciting duo, and Dinwiddie’s playmaking abilities could elevate Beal’s game even further.
The Wizards are hoping for a solid upcoming campaign after undergoing some major roster changes this offseason.
