As the NBA has shown this year, it is impossible to have one player carry your team the entire season.
The modern NBA requires a team to have a solid player at every position, as well as a bench that can produce on a nightly basis.
The Washington Wizards are slowly coming to realize that and are beginning to build their team around a young base, complete with proven veterans that have done their time in the league.
On a team that features 19-year-old Bradley Beal on the court at the same time as 30-year-old Emeka Okafor, Washington's front office is starting to build for the future.
However, the Wizards struggled once again this season, finishing with a 29-53 record, their fifth-straight losing season.
Now the time has come for fans in the nation's capital to start focusing on the offseason, which means deciding who should stay and who should go.
That means each player should be graded on their value to the team and how well they played in the 2012-13 season.
This grade is not only based upon the major statistical categories but also how valuable they were to the team and how healthy they were throughout the season.
Some players surprised fans by their performance, while some did just about exactly what they were expected to do this season.
What matters is keeping the players who can improve their grade in the future and dumping the ones who look to be on the decline.
