Considering how awful this team has been the past few years, I don't blame you. But the NBA is fickle- look how quickly the Clippers turned it around with the addition of Chris Paul. Indiana made some excellent under-the-radar moves to become a solid team, also.

I think if we get an Anthony Davis or a Bradley Beal, this team could definitely vie for a playoff spot as soon as next season. Of course, this all depends on Wall's on-court maturity over the next year.

I think the UNLV team that had Larry Johnson/Stacy Augmon and crew could have probably beat a few. Hell, they were paid professionals themselves...lol

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

That UNLV team was one of the best I ever saw.

However, Kentucky has 6 players projecting to be taken in rounds 1&2 of the upcoming draft, including a few ranked in the top 5 and possibly as many as 5 taken in the first round.

"Lining up for the Wildcats, we've got six future NBA players in the form of Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Marquis Teague, Doron Lamb and Darius Miller."

They're as scary as any team we've seen in a LONG time. I think they could give the Bobcats a run for their money.

True in football, but the difference between a top NCAA player and an NBA All Star is next to zero in many cases. They can stop on a campus for one season and then jump into the NBA to play at a high level or even dominate. Many of these top college programs are basically just temporary stops for legitimate NBA players who just need that year in college because there is a rule requiring it.

Recent examples are Blake Griffin and Chris Paul...going to All Star games by year 2 in the league.

to be fair griffin missed his entire first year with an injury so technically he made it his rookie year. just pointing this out because i completely agree with your point

you know what team griffin had his first triple double against? yup, the wizards

Anthony Davis would turn the Wizards around in his first year. Lob City East?

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

Insane all the Point Guard moves over the last couple days. I think Kyle Lowery to Toronto is the sleeper, best move of them. I love the Nash move, but he is going to have to adjust his game a lil...playing with Kobe is not easy. Really surprised NY is didnt match the Rockets offer. J Kidd doesnt have much left for the NY, but thats the Knicks.

I think the Wiz are set, just need that amnesty move to get rid of Blatche. I think a Vet combo guard maybe needed...Mo Williams was my choice, J Terry woulda never come here and Boston got him for cheap imo. Vet is needed in that back court.
