Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

You know how fans come up with the most lopsided trades in favor of their team and then argue the exchange is fair. Yeah this is one of those trades.

David Stern & NBA Royally Mishandled Chris Paul Trade | Laker Nation

Quote:
So it is the norm that when a superstar does request a trade, the team does not get back “true value” for that player, because that would seemingly be impossible to do. But in the case of the Chris Paul trade, where the New Orleans Hornets would have acquired two good big men (Odom and Scola) a potential future all-star guard (Kevin Martin) as well as draft picks, i’d say the Hornets would have made out like bandits.
Yeah, Odom, Scola, and Martin for the best point guard in the game in a superstar driven league. Man the Hornets should jump on that trade as soon as possible. Especially since the desire to trade for Paul will fade fast. Also good for Stern for realizing the importance of small market teams and not just trading Paul so the LA's and New Yorks of the world can continue to collect superstar players.

My only problem with this is that CP3 walks away next season and New Orleans gets nothing in return.

I understand that but like I said they have time to get this trade done. The saddest thing is that Paul is the 6th or 7th Superstar by my count to hold a small/non-traditional market hostage in recent memory (Lebron, Wade, Bosh, Melo, D. Williams, Howard, and Paul). I'm tempted to include Stoudemire but I think that was a case of Phoenix being frugal. Either way guys like Dirk, Duncan, and Durant are to few and far between.

Anyway F the Lakers. They played in 80% and 70% of the finals during the 80's and 2000's respectively. They don't need to start another freaking dynasty.

Hated losing Chandler.

CP3 to the Clips. I think this makes it two teams worth watching in LA. Paul, Butler, Griffin, Jordan... Chauncey off the bench.

I think the Hornets made out like bandits, however. Gordon is nasty... plus you get the potential of Aminu and a solid center in Kaman. Not to mention that lottery-bound pick in 2012 from Minny.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

So far the Wizards shooting percentage in both preseason games: game 1: 32.9%, tonight game 2: 35%. This is not from 3 point land, but the entire floor. If Flip contines to coach a game plan of: go one on one and settle for a 20 footer again this year, he should be fired after this season. Pall Wall should be going to the basket, Andrea Blatch (my arch nemesis) should not be allowed to get the ball out high. Jordan Crawford took 21 shots tonite, Jordon Crawford missed 15 f*cking shots tonite. Can someone please f*cking tell me why the f*ck we dont have a proven PG playing behind Wall, helping him? And please tell me Roger Mason is not back on this team.

Between Mason, Crawford and Young, they will shoot 55 shots a game miss 60%.

Coming off another Redskins season of most likely double digits loses and no playoffs. The transition to another Wizards season may seem easy, but i cant watch this team again this year without improvement...I might have to do the Tony to Costanza and tell them to step off.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

And then of course, Blatche complains after the game about how he's being used. I can't believe he's a team captain

WTF? Captain? Dude looks out of shape and slow, and looks to be giving 60-70% effort. Watching him attempt to rebound will make you go mad. Cant believe his effort and performance 1st game out. R. Lewis is done too.

Hey at least Singleton looked decent.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

On Twitter, Andray Blatche of Washington Wizards tells people to 'shut up' - ESPN

LOL, SS your boy is a classic. I hope he never gives twitter up. My favorite quote of the article:

Before the lockout, Saunders gave Blatche a book titled "The 17 Essential Qualities Of A Team Player." Blatche has said he read about half of it.

LOL, damn at least lie.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

Well at least Saunders is rotating captains. I don't see how he could keep Blatche a team captain. Apparently he was only considered in the first place because of how long he's been here. And idk why Blatche is complaining about how he's being used. Bitch if you don't wanna take the jump shot, drive to the mothereffin hoop. It's like it was said in the article, nobody's twisting your arm to make you take the jump shot.

I see Andrea bounced back with a 2 for 13 shooting performance. Drea is ballin.

Didnt watch the game, did he get the ball inside last night like he wanted?

Jordan Crawford with a miserable night as well, 0-6 shooting.

If we start slow in our next game, Flip needs to shake up the line up...start Singleton at SF and Young in at SG.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

I watch the 1st quarter last night against Orlando. The was the worst team ive ever seen play basketball. They started 0-10 shooting the ball. Andrea and Lewis are horrible.
