John Wall, Bradley Beal’s ‘swaggy’ end-of-season interviews

Recently, John Wall and Bradley Beal had a conversation about who has more swag.

“He’s swaggin’ right here,” Beal said of Wall’s cover fashion. “I’m not gonna lie. He got his prep-boy look, but he’s swagging though. He got a lot of clothes on, though.”

The two, who have said they consider themselves brothers, can often be found debating their own “swagginess,” but they might not want to use today as an example. Beal and Wall both rocked some interesting looks during end-of-season interviews at Verizon Center.

Beal channeled Jordan Crawford with this pants style.

“Yeah,” Beal said, when I asked if he was stealing Crawford’s steez. “I’m the new J.C. on the team.”

Beal topped it off with a “Young & Reckless” T-shirt.

“Both,” said the 19-year old, when asked if he was more young or wreckless. “Well, more wreckless than young. I’m getting older.

“No, I’m still young,” he continued, reconsidering his answer. “Until I turn 20. Then I’ll feel older.”

Ah, youth.

Wall went with shorts, in a pattern he called “Summertime Fine,” paired with “I got game” socks. Swaggy.
