Why Hornets vs. Wizards Will Be a Marquee Matchup in Near Future

The Washington Wizards and New Orleans Hornets, who face off Friday, will be a solid matchup in the coming years.

When the New Orleans Hornets and Washington Wizards take the court Friday night in the Verizon Center, two of the worst teams in the NBA will be facing off.

Washington has 21 wins and the Hornets only have 22, although the Wizards are higher up in their division.

While this game won't be catching the attention of any fans outside of the DC or New Orleans area, in a few years that may not be the case.

Both teams are extremely young and have a collection of promising players who could make both of their teams contenders in a matter of years.

While most people will quickly flip through this game on Friday, there are a number of reasons why, in only two or three seasons, it will be a game that will have fans glued to their televisions.
