Wizards Defense is effing horrible.....as usual. I've never seen a team give up so many uncontested shots. John Wall needs to shoot the open jumper. The Magic are daring him to.

Lol, we look like the Heat. And with that post I'm now a franchise player.

JJ Redick is already in the game and it's only the first quarter. Not a good sign for the Wizards (can we please change the name back to Bullets by the way?)

This Wizards team will be pretty lucky to get to 30 wins this year. My expectations are in check. It's such a young team, it seems like Grunfeld is building with the expectation of a work stoppage next year and a new league economic climate in 2012.

I was actually kind of worried that they would be mediocre and end up with a practically useless mid first round pick, but after seeing this they'll probably be back in the lottery giving them a chance to continue following the Oklahoma City model. Of course we have to remember that the Magic are a championship contender.

Only five more rebounds than Orlando assists... our trouble is going to be on the glass this year. I'd like to see more three guard sets when Gil gets back, with Hinrich at the 3.

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

Boy we need to be tougher around the rim, I can't remember the last time I saw so many uncontested layups. And they had a great strategy forcing Wall to take the uncontested jumper, because that was definitely a weak point. He's gotta continue to work on that to be effective because more teams will play him like that now.

My hype disappeared pretty quickly against the Magic tonight. Their defense did a great job of forcing lower percentage shots and the Wiz didn't convert many opportunities and could barely get an offensive rebound to save their life.

Well, it was the Magic so I'm not going to get all bent out of shape. I'm tired of Blatche though, I don't know why he keeps on insisting of floating outside the low post and taking these ridiculous shots that lead to easy rebounds and fast breaks for the Magic.

Now it was only one game, and the Magic play excellent defense. You combine that with our porous defense in the paint (50 in the paint? GD 'Zards) and how many excellent 3 point shooters they have and we could've seen it coming. They have the most suffocating defense I've seen in a while.

They're good but we don't have much this year. It was bad. Bad. It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if we got another #1 pick.

I think our ceiling is in the 32-35 win range. Worst case scenario our win total could be as bad as 15-20. Just my opinion. I like some of the young pieces on this team, but overall we're gonna suck pretty badly.

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

Let's see how they play when Gil and Josh Howard get back. We're a little shorthanded right now, I'm pretty sure the non-Wall starting lineup from last night (Hinrich, Thornton, Blache and McGee) doesn't scare anybody.
