Beal sat down with Chris Haynes on Yahoo! Sports Posted Up and when asked about fan voting, Beal voiced his frustration, “Fan voting is absolutely horrendous man.”
Beal went on to explain why he believes that fans should have a smaller percentage of the overall vote.
“We respect fans and we love our fans you know but we also know there’s a lot of people out there who don’t know the game, we also know that there’s people who just have favorite players and don’t watch everybody else and we all know that there’s people who they’re going vote one guy because that’s their favorite guy, their favorite everything so I don’t have that. For me it’s an unfair in-advantage.”
“Honestly, it should be on players and coaches,” Beal continued.
Although Beal missed out as a starter he still has a chance to be selected by coaches as a reserve. The reserves will be announced Thursday, January 30th.
If we’re keeping it real the NBA should really reconsider the voting breakdown.

K.J. Hill overlapped with Haskins for two years with the Ohio State Buckeyes. During Haskins' final year in Columbus, Hill was the No. 2 receiver with 70 receptions for 885 yards and six touchdowns.
There was a small dip in production for Hill after Haskins left for the NFL, however, he became a bigger red zone target with 10 touchdowns.
If the Redskins decided to adhere to their QB's requests, he would not be the only former pass-catching Buckeye to wear the Burgandy and Gold. Third-round draft pick Terry McLaurin was also on the 2018 Ohio State squad before making the move to the NFL.
