We've heard plenty this year about Bradley Beal's potential with everything from rumors of a Harden-for-Beal swap being turned down by Washington to murmurs of "bust." Going into the summer, he was being compared to Eric Gordon while he preferred being placed in the same boat as Ray Allen.

We all know that Beal had a rough start to his season, but he's started to hit his stride lately (as well as a rash of injuries) and his numbers are coming in-line with those of Gordon and Allen as rookies:

So the question is: what is his career trajectory? Do you still feel the same about the 19 year old rookie or has he pushed away some doubt?

In February, he averaged 15.1pts on 44.7% from the field and 50.8% from 3.

In March, he boosted that to 17.5 on 48.1% and 42.4%

Felt the same way too. I always thought he was the best player not named Anthony Davis to come out of the draft at the time of the draft.

We could definitely see Beal start making ASG's 2 seasons from now. Hell, he could make it next season if he can carry this on until the beginning of next season.

Since I have a life I've never spent any time forming opinions on Bradley Beal, but thank you for asking.

i'm a bit of a florida homer, but he has great all-around potential. was a great rebounder in college, he'll grow into an adequate defender, he's a good slasher and his shot still has elite potential.

he started off a bit slow, but i think he's shown promising flashes of late

All he needs to do is stay healthy

I will never label a kid after his first year, let alone after 15 games in his first year. I'll tell you be looks like **** and get on his case but labeling a kid a bust so quickly is completely unfair

Honestly I'm completely shocked at the last month. I used to think he was going to be the 478th best player of all-time and now I'm seriously considering putting him in my top 460.

Played so much better with Wall. Wish he didn't sprain in ankle on Nene and then the same one again.

Him and Wall are going to be sick together. Wizards need a big guy

Wall and Beal, Irving and Waiters will be the two most fun backcourts to watch for years to come. both fit each other perfectly. Wall is more of a penetrator while Beal is more of a shooter. Irving is more of a shooter and waiters is better taking it to the rim.
