On Monday, there was plenty of coverage from around the sports world regarding the comments made by Washington Wizards’ rookie Bradley Beal about Derrick Rose.

CBS Sports published an article that was titled “Wizards’ Bradley Beal on Derrick Rose: ‘I Think He’s Scared’.”

In the article, Beal said:

I don’t know what was holding him back. I think he’s scared it’s probably going to happen again and he won’t be the same. But you’re never the same after an injury. But you just have to fight through it and do something else to be able to impact the game. I’m not sure what it is he has to do. I really can’t speak for him.

Mark Weber of The Onside Kick gives his thoughts about the article and Beal’s comments. He explains why Beal’s comments didn’t call D. Rose out for being scared, but instead shows understanding for why Rose decided to sit out rather than come back to play this season. Mark also discusses how this quote was most likely taken out of context.
