News from Bradley Beal
As its name suggests, the « Hoop For All » association, based in Washington, has set itself the goal of facilitating access to the practice of basketball for as many people as possible, in addition to organizing tournaments and trying to help people in medical need.
About a year ago, she proposed to Bradley Beal to accompany her financially to rejuvenate the grounds of the Banneker Community Center, located in Columbia Heights and visibly not spared by the wear and tear of time.
Time and money invested for the local community
The Wizards fullback has accepted the challenge and doesn’t regret it, as renovations come to an end and the complex will soon have brand new pitches. The ceremony is scheduled for June 18.
“It was obvious. I liked what “Hoop For All” was doing as an association, raising awareness of medical issues that particularly affect the black community”pointed out Bradley Beal. “I liked that they were young, they didn’t necessarily have a lot of members, and when I first saw the courts, it was exactly what the community needed. You have nice tennis courts, good university, playground, swimming pool. The only thing missing was nice basketball courts.”
We could almost make the same analogy with the Wizards and Bradley Beal: all the elements seem to be in place for a new start. The only thing missing is the extension of its « franchise player »!
A looming extension
Even if the time is still for the rehabilitation of his wrist, for which the rear was reassuring, it is his possible extension to the tune of 250 million dollars which is awaited by the entire Wizards community. Behind the scenes, the signals seem rather positive.
Beyond his work on his wrist, range of motion, shot imitation before moving on to reinforcement, he stayed in touch with GM Tommy Sheppard about preparing for the Draft.
The player is also preparing for the arrival of his third child, a detail not to be overlooked.
“The operation went well, the recovery went well. I had no problem. This injury also gave me a mental break, time to enjoy life, and I haven’t changed my mindset. I love being in DC, I love being on this team”he told the Washington Post.
There are still five long weeks to wait for Wizards fans before a possible deliverance.
