As bad as the offseason was for Washington Wizards players, the regular season promises to be much worse.

Despite several straight offseasons in the NBA lottery, the Washington Wizards are a long ways away from being a credible playoff team.  

Point guard John Wall has shown occasional flashes of brilliance but still needs to make significant improvements to his game before he can pencil his name on the list of top NBA point guards.  

Shooting guard Nick Young has, at times, displayed a strong ability to score the basketball, but he too has lacked consistency.
