Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards feel that this is their time.

Beal and his backcourt mate John Wall appeared on ESPN's "The Jump" Friday afternoon ahead of a marquee matchup with the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers, and host Paul Pierce asked about where the team stands in the Eastern Conference.

A confident Beal responded, "I feel like we're the best team."

"I always stand by it," Beal said of the statement, which he has made before. "Why would I sit here and say another team is better than my team. I'm not gonna sit here and do that."

That makes sense. Beal and Wall are one of the best backcourt duos in the league, and the Wizards are a very good team. And they should be confident in their abilities.
