Next year will be make-or-break for the Wizards After last night’s 95-90 loss at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers that saw the Wizards score 33 first quarter points and jump out to a 13 point lead, then only 32 points over the next 24 minutes, I immediately starting thinking about the off-season.

Owner Ted Leonsis believes his Washington Wizards can become a ''destination'' - the sort of NBA team that top players strive to join, no matter what it takes.
