Did he 'like it' or like just like it like it?

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal tapped the little heart silhouette on a tweet that linked the All-Star to the Miami Heat.

Is this silly? Is this relevant? Is this news?

Unfortunately for Wizards fans, in this era of the NBA, it is. Especially with Beal's future still up in the air: The Wizards offered Beal a three-year, $111.7 million extension. He still hasn't signed it.

Beal, who was linked with a move out of D.C. during parts of last season, has two years remaining on his deal with the Wizards. And the Heat were reportedly willing to make a big splash for the University of Florida product.

And Beal has said he hasn't given the extension much thought. 

"Honestly, this might sound funny, but I haven't really thought about it. Honestly, I've thought about it, but I have my boy, so my family is what's supporting me," Beal said in late September. "So I've been thinking about that and just honestly letting my agent and Ted (Leonsis) and Tommy (Sheppard) just kinda work through those details. The deal's on the table, but I'm definitely taking my time and just evaluating what's best for my family. I still have two years on my deal, so I'm not in no type of rush."

Of course, Heat Twitter took the news of Beal's twitter activity very well.

The Heat reloaded this offseason adding Jimmy Butler. The Wizards? Well, they underwent a massive amount of roster turnover, but they've got three players in the bottom of the NBA 2K20 ratings on their roster. That's not good.

Of course, this isn't the only activity on Twitter that will have some in the DMV a bit steamed up about Beal: He's been rooting for his hometown Cardinals over the Washington Nationals.

Shades of another former All-Star who played in these parts and rooted for his home team and didn't sign an extension to stay.

Teammate John Wall, who is in the first year of his four-year supermax extension this season, was supporting the Nationals at Game 3. Wall is expected to miss most of the season as he recovers from an Achilles injury, but believes Beal will ultimately sign the extension.
