With a 28-47 record, there are a number of reasons why Washington Wizards fans should be concerned about the coming years.
Washington started out the season with a 12-game losing streak, while numerous negative Twitter accounts popped up around social media mocking the team—for example "Wiz Win Last Night?" The team's poor record is due to of a number of glaring weaknesses, weaknesses that need to be addressed if the Wizards want to be successful in the NBA.
However, there are a number of reasons why Washington fans should be encouraged about their team. Youth is a considerable strength for Washington, and the roster is clearly built for the future.
Heading into the offseason, Washington would be wise to look at both the team's strengths and weaknesses in order to properly prepare for the future.
The strengths on this list are the true bright spots and deserve more respect than they are getting in the national media. These strengths also must be built around if Washington ever wants to break its streak of five straight losing seasons.
