Bradley Beal’s 2016-17 Season in Review

Bradley Beal worked tirelessly in the summer of 2016 to get his body and game ready for his fifth NBA season. After signing a long-term contract before the offseason, Beal knew expectations would be higher for him entering the 2016-17 season.

His preparation and his determination to stay healthy led to a career season. Beal scored 23.1 points per game, up 5.7 points per game from his previous career-high. He would end the season shooting career-highs 48.2% from the field and 82.5% from the free throw line, as well as 40.4% from 3-point, his second-best 3-point clip of his career. Beal joined Kevin Durant and Vince Carter to be one of three players in NBA history 23 years old or younger to average 23.0 points or better and shoot above 40 percent from 3-point range.

Beal also elevated his playmaking in 2016-17, increasing his assists per game to a career-high 3.5 while continuing to control the ball with only two turnovers per game. His 3-point shooting was still elite, as he set the franchise single-season 3-pointer record by making 223 triples in the season, passing Gilbert Arenas’ mark of 205 (done twice, 2004-05 and 2006-07). Beal was one of 11 Washington players in team history to have four 40+ point efforts in a season, the first since Arenas had nine in 2006-07. He was one of 12 players this season to have four 40+ point efforts (one of four in the East). He had 52 games of 20+ points this season, the most he has had in his career (22 in 2013-14 and 2015-16).

The Panda not only became an elite shooter but also one of the East’s top scorers, finishing tied for eighth with John Wall in the East at 23.1 points per game. Beal continued to grow his midrange and 3-point shooting game, but also demonstrated an impressive bounce when he put the ball on the floor. He became a solid finisher around the rim and a creative scorer when his team needed him most.

Obama’s return: Good or bad for Democrats?

Urban Marketing Group Staff

Published

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly two years out of the White House, former President Barack Obama is facing another political test.

To the delight of many Democrats, he’s stepped back into the fray that former presidents often try to avoid, campaigning for Democratic candidates ahead of the midterms and blasting the political culture of the Trump era. He attracted a large, adoring crowd this past week in Ohio and will be in Pennsylvania on Friday campaigning for Democratic Sen. Bob Casey.

But Obama’s return poses challenges for both the former president and his party. For one, Obama has struggled to turn admiration for him into votes when he’s not on the ballot. Democrats lost significant ground in the 2010 and 2014 midterms and his enthusiastic campaigning for Hillary Clinton didn’t carry her across the finish line in 2016. Perhaps more importantly, Obama’s public re-entry into politics could serve as a motivating factor for Republicans, potentially handing the GOP a gift at a time when they face an uphill battle to maintain their grip on Congress.

“This is perfect for us,” said Rep. Lou Barletta, the Republican challenging Casey for the Senate seat. “It will energize Republicans as a reminder.”

The former president will also “energize those blue-collar Democrats who worried about their jobs under Obama and went out to vote for Donald Trump,” Barletta added.
