Wednesday Wizards Report   Happy Hump Day Wiz fans! So far on our current 5 game road trip the Wiz are 2-2 and end out the trip in Utah tonight as they take on the Jazz at 9:00pm eastern time.  Washington is 4-2 since John Wall returned to the line-up and 5-2 in our last seven. This Wizards team has a different swagger about them since Wall has returned and it is surely the most exciting stretch of basketball us Wizards fans have watched all season. But there are rumblings that our winning ways could be a curse in disguise. What if the Wizards end up with 30 wins? Do they stay the course with this current team? That is the least of our worries as Wizards fans because this team has shown they can compete with anyone after beating the likes of the Heat, the Thunder, and beating the Nuggets at home where they only recorded 2 home losses up until we made it 3. How far will the Wiz drop in the draft as the wins keep piling up? This is also another concern that really isn’t a bad thing. This year’s draft is considered to be a weak one and when I look at the draft, drafting in the top 3 compared to the 6-12 range, there isn’t that much difference in talent. The real concern we as Wizards fans should have in the back of our mind is will Ernie Grunfeld be retained if we end out the season on a high note? That’s the real nightmare scenario. Yes Grunfeld has put together a pretty decent roster, but if it wasn’t for his TERRIBLE drafting and several other bone headed moves (re-signing Blatche, Gilbert’s extension, not just buying-out Rashard’s contract, the list goes on and on), the Wizards would probably be in a much better situation than they are now facing what is sure to be their 5th consecutive losing season. If I was the owner, or if anybody who really has a passion for the Wizards was the owner, Grunfeld would have been gone a long time ago. But he is still with our team and we are all wondering if we have to go through another lovely Grunfeld off-season. I never believe in tanking a season and I always want to see my team win as much as possible. Even knowing that Grunfeld could be retained if we have a strong second half of the season, I still want us to win as much as possible and develop some real team chemistry that we can build upon in the off-season. We just have to hope that Ted can see that Grunfeld has set the Wizards back over his tenure, not help guide them to greater things. But Ted has to know that the entire Wizards fan base wants Grunfeld gone with all the propaganda around the web right? And he has to look at his track record with the Wizards right? Since taking over the reins of the Wizards starting in the summer of 2003, Grunfeld has had only 3 winning seasons out of 10 (that’s assuming we don’t have a winning season this year). Over that span the Wizards have gone 291-468 or a winning percentage of .383. I mean a decade of that crap is enough right? Hopefully Ted see’s the light and relieves us of the pain and anger that Grunfeld causes us on a yearly basis. Even if the Wizards end up this season with 30 wins or more, it’s time for a change, and that change needs to start in the front office. Hopefully a strong 2nd half of the season will not blind the owner to the real problem. Wiz fans, let’s keep enjoying this exciting brand of basketball the boys are playing and hope the wins keep pouring in. Stay Steezy my friends.
