    WASHINGTON — Bradley Beal, Russell Westbrook and the rest of the Washington Wizards wore black T-shirts with one word in white capital letters on each — "accountability," "equality" or "justice" — for their annual team photo.

    "It's definitely a statement piece for us," Beal, who is second in the NBA in scoring average this season, said in a video posted on Tuesday by the Wizards on Twitter (Wednesday, Manila time).

    "This is us just kind of choosing a few words that we kind of live by and we kind of hold ourselves to as men and as teammates," Beal added.

    His shirt said "Justice." Westbrook's said "Accountability."

    "I think it's amazing how we are, as a team, doing something a little different ... having shirts that actually have some substantial meaning behind it," said Westbrook, who leads the league in assists and is assured of averaging a triple-double over the course of an entire season for the fourth time in his career.
