It has been a very strange season for the Washington Wizard's Bradley Beal. On one hand, the 27-year-old guard had a career year where he averaged a whopping 30.5 points per game with 6.1 assists. On the other hand, he was somehow not selected for the All-Star game this year, in what was a hugely perplexing decision made by the voters.

Now, it's gone from bad to worse for Beal as he has also been denied a spot in either of the three All-NBA teams of this season! His statistics are too good to be overlooked this easily, and Beal couldn't hide his discontent as he took to Twitter to subtly take a dig at the voters.
