Bradley Beal had a career-night against the Phoenix Suns last night and showed the world why he signed such a lucrative contract in the summer.
The shooting guard signed a five-year deal worth $127,171,313 earlier this year and many believed that whilst he is a talented player, he had done precious little to prove himself as a max-player.
Dropping a career-high 42 points last night will go some way to silencing those doubters.
Beal went 5-of-10 from three-point range but was most impressive with his two-point jumpers.
The former Florida standout shot 63.6 percent from the field with 14-of-22 shooting. The Suns had no answers for his drives to the basket and Beal was finishing at will.
And when Phoenix did foul the third overall draft pick back in 2012, Beal was an efficient 9-of-11 from the charity stripe.
Beal is no doubt a talented performer, but reports emerged over the summer that he and backcourt partner, John Wall, don't exactly see eye-to-eye.
Wall, himself a former number one overall draft pick, did very little to calm those rumours and many believe they may be stunting each others growth.
However, with performances like this, maybe the future is bright in Washington after all. On the court, anyway.
