Lots of fresh faces on the Wizards sideline--this year and next

As a sports fan, it's often hard to admit: my team is one of the worst in the league.

But I encourage fellow 'Zard heads to embrace it. Even say it out loud. It can be cathartic.

In all likelihood it will be 2013 before we see the makings of a competitive Wizards team. But there is hope, as the franchise has assembled a group of talented, young prospects to build upon and found direction under new ownership.

John Wall was a godsend, both talent-wise and because the Wizards desperately needed a fresh face to sell tickets after Gilbert Arenas' epic fall from grace. They've added some other pieces with potential, and can actually be fun to watch in stretches.

It's not going to be easy; Rome wasn't built in a day, etc.

I submit to you my 10-step (recovery) program for the Washington Wizards.
