Rumors surrounding whether John Wall and Bradley Beal actually like each other have been prevalent for a very long time. However, after the two were separated in a trade that sent Wall (and a protected first-round pick) to Houston in exchange for Russell Westbrook, Beal took to social media to clear the air once and for all, while also thanking Wall for the time the two shared on and off the floor.
"To my bro @johnwall, Thank you!! Can’t say those two words enough. You accepted me as young pup in HS and then for 8 amazing years in DC! Wall/Beal hate each other was the biggest amount of BS we endured, but you and I both know the REAL!" Beal wrote Friday in the post. "You are my brother 4L and that bond is way bigger than this game we play! We had amazing memories that’ll always be cherished and never forgotten! The city of DC loves you and appreciates every ounce of the blood, sweat, and tears you gave to the game and the community."
He continued, "Your works and name will continue in the nations capital. H-Town, y’all are getting a real solid brother!! Love you 5! Peace and Blessings."
Wall responded in the comments section of the Instagram post saying: "Love Ya Brother, u know wat it is wit us...Keep doin ur thing."
