Smooth. Subtle. Sincere. Bradley Beal made his initial stint in the All-Star limelight at the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge last night, coolly dropping buckets like leaking faucet drops en route to 21 points.
The game was your typical exhibition of NBA adolescence blessed with the privilege to freely showcase their skills on the open hardwood. Andre Drummond fancied all with a 30 point performance, earning him fumbling MVP honors.
For the night, Beal operated mostly from the 1 spot for #TeamHill but was also observed hanging out in his comfort zone on the perimeter where he knocked down most of his shots.
The highlight of the night came by way of a 1-on-1 shootout between Dion Waters and Tim Hardaway, Jr. For about two minutes in the 2nd half, the floor cleared away as Waters and Hardaway subsided into an ISO duel for long range supremacy, before it ended when Waiters decided to try beating Tim off the dribble and drew a foul.
As evidenced by his twerky booty strut, Kevin Durant was thoroughly impressed.
