As has been the case for quite some time now, the Washington Wizards have long been considered the league clowns of the NBA. There’s really no need for clarification as the factors for the team’s prolonged suckassness has been on full display and well documented: slow starts, slow finishes, offensive ineptitude, defensive struggles, lack of talent, poor coaching, managerial mishaps, injuries, Jan Vesely.
It’s fairly evident that the Wizards have been the cause of several unfavorable headlines, covering almost every negative facet of the game. It’s a tolling, testing and trying experience for every Wizards fan and to be quite frank on behalf of all of us: it BLOWS.
But let’s actually fast forward past all the regurgitated rhetoric about how bad the team sucks, or has sucked until this past week.
Let’s actually talk about this past week.
The Wizards didn’t start fully shaping into the team they initially constructed until after the OKC game two Mondays ago, but it’s pr...

This is a two part highlight post. First up is Ish Smith jumping completely over John Wall when he stops and pump fakes on a layup: Apparently, Wall was none to please that Ish jumped over him, and decided he would get a little payback on the court.

I can confidently say that this is the first Ish Smith post that we've attempted on That NBA Lottery Pick and he had to do something pretty impressive to earn it.Earlier tonight, the Orlando Magic guard was playing some solid defense on Wizards guard John Wall.As he went up to attempt a block, Ish cleared Wall and leapt over him:
Yesterday, we posted a video of Orlando Magic guard Ish Smith leaping over Wizards guard John Wall and blocking his shot.Well, later in that game...Mr. Wall got revenge by dropping Ish with a pretty solid crossover that sent him to the ground and gave John the opportunity to find Kevin Seraphin for the easy bucket:
Wizards PG John Wall’s second game resulted in the another win. The team’s third straight win at home and second consecutive win over the Orlando Magic, a 120-91 win vs Magic. The Wizards are now 2-1 against the Magic this year but more importantly, they feel as though they’re beginning to gel. Wall’s return has given these [...]
The return of John Wall even in limited minutes has seemed to ignite the Washington Wizards, who are on the verge of a four-game winning streak that would double their previous win total.
