The Wizards are in the playoffs this season, in which both John Wall and Bradley Best stepped their games up by participating in the All Star weekend events. Wall took home Best Dunker honors. Beal shot his slot at a 3 point title but finished as the runner up.

This has been a standout season for both guards who were drafted to secure the team’s backcourt, and now that move is paying off in playoff experience. It’s taken John Wall four seasons to lead the Wiz to the playoffs, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo commented “For such a young guy to have so much pressure on him, having a franchise on his back and he’s finally able to get to the playoffs, I’m sure it’s kind of a like a burden lifted off of him.”
