John Wall’s absence has not helped Washington’s struggles.credit: washingtonpost.com It’s still early in the NBA season, yet far enough in where every team should have at least one win. Well, unless you’re the Washington Wizards. So far, the team is 0-11, making them the worst team in the league. A lot of people didn’t think they would be much of a threat in the East. But they also weren’t supposed to be this awful. Rookie Bradley Beal is taking it just as hard as anyone. Via The Washington Post: “We just lost. Everybody hates losing. You just see the guys faces, it’s like depression. We haven’t won a game yet,” Beal said. “We still have [71] more games. It’s still a long season. We still have our opportunity to get over .500. Right now, it’s our goal we have to shoot for, is to probably get into the playoffs. We’re going to make it. I have faith in this team. I have confidence in us. I think we’re more than capable of doing it, with the assets that we have. As long as guys keep buying in and never give up, we’ll be fine.” Yikes. To be fair, the team has been without it’s best player and former number one overall pick, John Wall, due to injury. Additionally, big man Nene has only played in two games, and has only played limited minutes in those two games. Bradley Beal has struggled as much as anyone, shooting only 33% from the field. This team isn’t stacked, but they’re talented enough when healthy that they shouldn’t be historically awful. The question now is this: Who will be the team to give the Wizards their first win? -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Bradley Beal On Team’s Struggles: “It’s Like Depression” appeared first on Pass The Pill.

Wizards Fans Have Had Enough, Ernie Grunfeld Needs to be Fired

Ted Leonsis continues to blog about sticking together and not making changes. Sometimes I see his blog posts as a slap to the fan, like we don’t know what the real problem with the organization is — the General Manager Ernie Grunfeld. The media knows it, the bloggers know it, and most importantly the fans know it. The only person at this time who doesn’t seem to know what needs...

Vesely struggling to improve

The Washington Wizards are finding it hard to get that first win of the season. Sitting at 0-12 has to be embarrassing enough. But for Wizards forward Jan Vesely, it gets even worse. To call Vesely a bust would be an understatement. Washington took him with the sixth overall pick in last year’s draft and he hasn’t even put up numbers that would be satisfactory for an undrafted...

Wizards rookie will finally get his chance at Ginobili

When I talked to Washington Wizards rookie Bradley Beal during preseason, he spoke very highly of fellow shooting guard Manu Ginobili, even calling him dynamic and dangerous. Beal had hoped to get the opportunity to play against Ginobili that night, but with the Spurs all-star guard sidelined with an injury, Beal instead faced and struggled against Danny Green, with the 19-year...

Andray Blatche blasts the Wizards, says it’s good to be with a winning organization

The seven seasons Andray Blatche spent with the Washington Wizards were erratic, to say the least.

Now with the Brooklyn Nets, Blatche seems overjoyed to be out of the nation’s capital. According to...

Andray Blatche: The Wizards Tried To End Me

Following last night’s 96-89 win over the Knicks, Andray Blatche took to twitter to write, “Feels good to be part of a winning organization” – a subtle shot at his former team, the 0-12 Washington Wizards. But it didn’t stop there. The Nets forward proceeded to do a radio interview with Holden Kushner and Danny Rouhier on 106.7 The Fan where he called out the Wizards for...

Spurs keep Wizards winless

WASHINGTON -- The Spurs are experienced and savvy and have good team chemistry. And, in terms of their record, win-heavy. In other words, everything the Washington Wizards are not. When the two met Monday, San Antonio went with a balanced approach in racking up its latest road victory. The winless Wizards' record remains decidedly tilted in the wrong direction. Boris...
