Thank god! We won a damn game! And it was an impressive win despite Detroits massive comeback led by Spencer Dinwiddie of all people.. I hope now that we have Beal back some life will be injected into this squad. They looked really good today and Wall was great, it looked like the Wizards basketball we used to see! I still think we are a top 4 team despite everyone pretty much saying we are a joke, if we can play like we did today then im happy!
However one win doesn't make me forget about our Ernie/ Wittman rant, i still want them gone, the day they go it'll be like Christmas.. And yeah finding a coach out of the rough that no one has ever heard of, who is an assistant to Carlisle, Pop or someone would be awesome. Carlisle has had some gems of coaches come out from under him now; Dwayne Casey and Terry Stotts of Portland, and we all know about Pops crew..
Kevin Ollie would be ideal! I never thought about him, i always just think about actual NBA coaches, not college coaches. But yes, i'm all for Ollie, maybe put Malone as the assistant? Or the other way round, that would be perfect! Also, i've heard a lot of people saying Alvin Gentry, thoughts? I'm not sure..
Yeah thats good to hear Ted actually analyzing the Wizards, but i feel like he gets too attached to the management, he must, considering how long Wittman has been in Washington!
A new GM, preferably a new face, not someone who has been working under Grunfeld, someone like Ujiri would be perfect! Mike Malone or Mark Jackson would be also perfect, Malone single handedly turned around SAC before being relieved for some unknown reason!
Tough loss today, however we competed, and stuck with the best team in the NBA which is semi refreshing to see, and plus Gortat is playing better. We need to compete like that from now on in, because the whole league has the idea now that we are not contenders, and i agree. 2-11 is what we are now in the last stint of games!
But yeah i completely agree about the management change if we are serious about recruiting KD, maybe grab some management team that is close to KD? Put his shooting teacher in the coaching staff etc etc..
I still think we can compete and we can sneak back into 4th with Rose out, but they have to pull their heads in and work for it!
Sorry for the delay, my B/R home page has been down! Uh yeah so we got Sessions, i like this trade, he was really good for us in Charlotte and we all know hes an upgrade over Miller.. However, our season is crumbling, Wittman seems to be getting really frustrated with the team and i have a feeling he has lost his players.. I honestly can't see us getting back into the top 4 considering how those other teams are doing, maybe our season will turn around when Beal is back, and Gortat gets his groove but yeah! If we don't make top 4 i want to see Wittman and Grunfield sacked. Our bench is rubbish, Humphries, Seraphin and (can't comment on Sessions) are the only ones performing, the guards and wing players have given nothing..
Tough times being a Wizard fan at the moment!
Kevin Martin would be awesome, apparently MIN is wanting Kevin Seraphin though, is it worth it? I'm not sure.. I mean i remember Seraphin having seasons like he is right now and then the following season he takes a step back, so i'm not sure whether his progression is legit at this stage, but if it is then i want to keep him! But Martin would solve many of our problems, it would tie us up financially though entering next season..
Beal's out again tonight vs the Magic, but i do like seeing Porter start the games, he's been looking good the past few ones. Unlucky we lost to the Hornets again though, we have to start capitalizing on the teams below us we play, thats 5 game skid has put us behind Toronto a bit, especially considering they beat SAS also!
Things have changed since your last comment to me! haha now Washington has fallen two games behind Toronto and are on a bad slump, and the bench has disappeared! Butler has lost his touch, and no one is really stepping up and taking that 6th man role besides Humphries. We need to get another back up PG, it's ridiculous, Miller is done, he's best suited as a 3rd option mentor player, i see we are interested in Will Bynum? Why not Nate Rob? It doesn't make sense, Nate is the perfect guy who can light it up from time to time and is not afraid to take big shots. He's the perfect candidate for me!
Beal needs to step up more, i was reading something about his defense, and it has not been good! He's also shooting pretty poorly, theres definitely some areas he can improve on, and i have no doubt he'll be a top 5 top 3 SG one day, but i kind of expected a bit more from him. Gortat is struggling significantly too!
Would be awesome to see a win against ATL, it would put us back on notice and we better beat Charlotte next, even though they are my team, WAS needs the win more at this stage.
Hows it man?
I've been off B/R for quite some time now, haven't watched a full Wizard game in months! Been really busy away from home working, but always seeing the highlights.
Man Washington is playing really well, the bench has been superb! I want Nate in Washington though, while Miller understands the game so well, he's too slow! Washington's stats drop significantly when Wall leaves the game for Miller..
Really wanted Wiz to beat OKC today to prove something to the league, owell. Wizards have a legit shot at making ECF
Yeah bro that Miller drive was nifty haha it was so slow mo, but so good! Haha love seeing old guys such as Miller pull out those sort of tricks.
Wow, did not realize Rusual would be leading 3P%!
Man, with Derozan out we can really capitalize and take that number 1 spot! And when you look at our up coming schedule it's do able! We've got Lakers, Nuggets, Celtics x2, Magic, then Clippers, Jazz, Wolves!
Rasual Butler = Beast.
Lol, i can't even believe i'm saying this, but boy did Wittman make the right call opting to give Rasual a contract!
Yeah bro MIL have been balling man, they are playing exceptionally well! And when they do win against the bad teams, like Minnesota today, they thump them. Brandon Knight has been on form, so has Oj Mayo and maybe Jason Kidd is not that bad of a coach after all?
Sorry i've been extremely busy too, and where im working at the moment there is pretty bad internet! I don't know if you guys have Internet problems in US, but you sure do in NZ.
Washington have been playing really well despite their losses against CLE today and Dallas and who ever else they lost to recently. Rasual Butler has been a hidden gem! He scored 23 points today! Wall has been good too, and it's good to see Beal back, and now officially in the starting line up again! Kris Humphries has been terrific too, he's adding that big nuisance of a body Booker used to, although Booker has been great in Utah also.. Need more production from the back up guards though, will be good to see Webster back in Dec some time.. Overall i've been happy with the Wizards and John Wall is really starting to receive the credit he deserves. Finally people are admitting that Wall is better than Kyrie.
