John Wall says he and Bradley Beal motivated by people wanting them to break up

There has been speculation for years about the relationship between John Wall and Bradley Beal, who have co-existed as the Wizards' two best players since they were high draft picks. They have made it work on the court well enough to reach the playoffs four times, but many have wondered whether their egos as All-Stars can mesh.

Both Wall and Beal have been insistent that there are no issues at all between them. According to Wall, it has actually played a role in motivating them to stick together and prove people wrong.

"I cant wait, man. I feel like a lot of people want us to break up and not be together," Wall said Friday during the Wizards-Pelicans broadcast on NBC Sports Washington.

"Thats the reason why I wanted to be able to be a Wizard for a long time, for my whole career, and thats the reason why Brad re-signed [last October]. Its because we feel like we have a lot more in store."

Wall has been out nearly two years with his injury and during that time Beal has blossomed into a two-time All-Star. He has thrived with more responsibility in the offense and Wall sees potential for them to be even better as a duo once they are reunited on the court.

"Tosee the level that hes playing at right now, I cant wait to be out there with a guy like that. Thats my brother, hes a superstar in this league," Wall said.

"If I can get back to the way I was playing in 16-17, or even better, its going to be a scary sight for the league."

Milwaukee Bucks starGiannis Antetokounmpo's headbutt of Wizards forward Moe Wagner led to an ejection, but also an explosion of reactions on Twitter.

Among the voices on social media was Wizards star guard Bradley Beal, who is not with the team in Orlando as he recovers from an injury.

Beal initially reacted to the moment with some choice words, saying that the move byAntetokounmpo was unacceptable. He, however, used an acronym that features words that cannot be written in this story.

Then, Beal elaborated on his feeling with some emojis that can be decoded to "angry."

Clearly, the guard was not pleased with what transpired, which is understandable. Not only did Beal watch his teammate be on the receiving end of the headbutt, but the action byAntetokounmpo is something that put both of them in danger, as any trauma to the head can be dangerous.

Beal may not be in Orlando to share withAntetokounmpo how he feels up close and personal, but NBA players have shown time and time again that they have no problem trading blows through Twitter. That means this may not be the last statement on the altercation in the bubble.
