As the NBA All-Star Weekend approaches, marking the mid-point of the NBA season, the Wizards have yet to win a game on the road. The Wizards will eventually get their first road victory, but it is hard to determine when being that they play so inconsistently.
John Wall has been active for the past couple of weeks but has admitted to not being able to play at 100 percent like he would like.
On a good note, the Washington Wizards have found that they are more than half-way done with developing players that would probably be with the Wizards in the future; that being about 4-7 years. There is a lot of praise going toward the general manager Ernie Grunsfeld for getting rid of Gilbert Arenas because of the improved basketball the Wizards have been playing.
But many think that Ernie Grunsfeld could have done a lot better considering the many teams in the NBA that have valuable players to trade that could possibly fit the Wizards slightly better than Lewis is.
Then again, Ernie doesn't have a time machine and has expressed that the move had to be made or else they wouldn't have the deal still up for grabs.
The goal from the start of the season and even the goal of Rashard Lewis after his trade was to make the playoffs, that would be fitting in possibly with a 7th or 8th seed.
