Wall is straight up nasty. 1 turnover to boot.

Random NBA note, I found this picture a bit funny...


When did Jordan come out of retirement? LOL.

I enjoyed every minute of that game. Wall is fun to watch. Gil still looks hobbled and his defense has been depressing to watch, but if his shot starts to fall again, our offense could be decent. I liked Yi's and McGee's intensity tonight and Blatch looked good.

I'm most impressed with Thornton's improvement. He's been very aggressive on offense and our best rebounder. I never thought he'd put up a fight when Josh Howard returns, but it looks like we will have two solid small forwards on the team.

WE're still a 25-30 win team at best, likely a 20-25 win team, but I enjoy watching these guys.

Never underestimate the impact of a superstar PG that knows how to get others involved. As long as Wall's on the floor, Thornton can look like Shawn Marion. Without Wall, I think we'd be seeing a very inefficient scorer.

Re: Washington Wizards 2010-2011 Ongoing Thread

How is his court vision? I'm hoping that last night was an indication because that speed isn't going to always be there so it would be nice to know that he'll be able to carry this team for a while. Granted of course that he doesn't try to dip out like every other NBA player worth a damn.

He's definitely benefiting from Wall's assists, but I've actually been more impressed with his ability to create his own shot in the block and his willingness to fight for rebounds. He lost a bit of weight in the offseason and it shows in his speed and jumping. Very spry. He's dunking in situations where he would have floated a shot last year.

Good win against the Rockets. I was watching the game at a bar in Houston, and people were bewildered that I was rooting for the Wiz Kids.

He gets a lot of boards for a guard.

When Blache, McGee and YI toughen-up the Wizards will be both formidable and exciting. The Rockets are banged-up right now, but that can't devalue the Wizards effort last night. A triple double for the little big man.

Wall has been lights out so far but schooled here.

YouTube - Derrick Rose crosses John Wall and lays it in


I watched this game very entertaining!

Derrick has extreme talents and can school any p/g. Would like to see Wall slow down to the extent his thoughts catch-up to his speed. Sometimes he plays out of control .
