With the above tweet, Bradley Beal committed his first act of social media as member of the Washington Wizards. And social media reacted: Wizards fans, members of the Florida Gators basketball community, Beal’s family, and his new Wizards teammates — all more than happy with the outcome.

“Few of the guys have already reached out to me, so I’m starting to develop a relationship with the guys already,” Beal revealed at his press conference in Washington D.C. “Trevor Booker texted me. I talked to John last night. Chris Singleton texted me saying ‘FSU’, I told him like ‘no way.’  Trevor Ariza texted me as well. All these guys have reached out to me and I am glad that they all have did that. It shows me that they care, and they are ready to get going.”

To the Tweets…

Bradley’s family was with him in Newark, and his brothers used the Twitter machine to describe the experience:

Eldest brother Brandon teased Bradley’s high school basketball coach, Kelvin Lee of Chaminade, for getting emotional when the Wizards made their pick:

"brandon beal"  "florida gators" "washington wizards" "bradley beal" "nba draft" "truth about it" "adam mcginnis"

Bradley’s two older brothers, Brandon and Bruce, pictured below on draft night, will be moving to D.C. with him. After asking Bradley what his new future living arrangement would be like,  he shyly responded: “I just hope we can find a grocery store.”

To be a 19-year old NBA draft pick…

    I love the Booker/Seraphin exchange. It’s the most Booker/Seraphin thing ever.
