Now I understand why John Wall doesn’t like Bradley Beal.

During a little ruckus in Friday’s game between the Wizards and the Magic, Beal grabbed Orlando guard Evan Fournier by the throat. And if you think the headline is overblown, think again. Beal grabbed Fournier hard enough to leave a clear mark on his neck.

In what clearly should have been a flagrant foul and probably an ejection for Beal, the refs instead handed out technicals to Beal, Fournier, Bismack Biyombo, and Kelly Oubre Jr.
