Bradley Beal says Raptors are best team in East
Bradley Beal has quite the hot take about the Eastern Conference.
Speaking with reporters on Thursday, the Washington Wizards guard said that he thinks the Toronto Raptors are the best team in the East right now, according to Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington.

The Raptors are currently second in the conference with a record of 34-15, 1.5 games behind the Boston Celtics for the No. 1 seed. They are also a full 6.5 games ahead of Beal and the Wizards, who are fifth in the East at the moment.
When you compare these latest comments to what Beal was saying earlier in the year, it is probably as much praise for the Raptors as it is an indictment of the Wizards for largely failing to meet expectations to this point of the season.
