John Wall and Bradley Beal are trying to learn to like each other (Ball Don’t Lie)

John Wall and Bradley Beal feel the love. The Washington Wizards have been an excellent example of that difficulty. General manager Ernie Grunfeld opened this decade by selecting two very promising guards in John Wall (the first-overall pick in 2010) and Bradley Beal (third in 2012), and both have impressed enough to earn max-level contracts as the future leaders of the franchise.

After falling in Olympic play, Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic is A-OK (Ball Don’t Lie)

Mirotic averaged 11.8 points and 5.6 rebounds in eight Olympic games. Luckily for all involved, the 2016 Olympics passed without any major injuries in the Men’s Basketball realm. There will be a bit of fatigue – San Antonio Spurs fans were no doubt fretting over every bead of sweat Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and especially Pau Gasol dropped mid-August – but once again returning NBA players managed to escape the Olympic turn without a significant malady.

The Lakers and the NBA are taking another chance on Yi Jianlian (Ball Don’t Lie)

Yi hit for 25 points and six rebounds against Team USA. After a few frustrating free agent chase-downs with Kobe Bryant around, and a 2016 offseason without Bryant on board, the Los Angeles Lakers have mostly committed to the idea of a full-on rebuilding project. New, “rookie” head coach Luke Walton is the team’s biggest free agent signing, there won’t be any agent-favoring vet acquisitions like Carlos Boozer and Roy Hibbert to help fill out the roster, and the team seems fully bent on working with the young prospects it has alongside the 2017 NBA draft pick it will hopefully get to keep next spring.
