Washington Wizards head coach Flip Saunders provided this explanation as to why the team is struggling so mightily: John Wall and other players played far too much in the summer leagues.
In this age of constant information and unparalleled hype of young people, we are often led to believe that every NBA team has something going for it.
The Washington Wizards are proof that such is not the case, and really, never has been.
But thats not what we were told. We were told that second-year point guard John Wall was going to be The Man to lead the Wizards to respectability...
Rashard Lewis and Nick Young each had 15 points to lead the Washington Wizards to their first win after eight consecutive losses, a 93-78 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night.
After the worst start in franchise history, coach Flip Saunders left Andray Blatche and Lewis on the bench to start the game. It was the first time this season Blatche didn't start. Before...
After the lockout, there was a lot of speculation about Nick Young and where he would land in the NBA as a free agent. Many members of the DC media were pleading for Washington to not overpay just to keep Young due to his inconsistency.
I was not one of them.
I’ve come to find that I’m in the minority of the people who believe that Young is our second greatest asset on this...
The Washington Wizards might be the NBA's most dysfunctional team but that doesn't mean they can provide the highlights courtesy of John Wall.
Wall's latest victim to make his highlight reel is Chicago Bulls' John Lucas III.
Lucas, who made his first start for the Bulls and played extremely well in the win (25 pts, 8 reb, 8 ast), had his personal moment ruined by...
The Washington Wizards are easily the NBA’s worst squad with a 1-9 record after last night’s loss to the Bulls. Naturally (some lockout, some with the increased number of home games per week, some suckitude), attendance has really fallen off for the Wiz. When I say falling off, I mean no one is showing.
The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg did a piece yesterday on ticket...
After nine long months, the Wizards finally delivered a victory on Tuesday. As Michael Lee wrote in an earlier blog post, Coach Flip Saunders made the necessary moves to get the desired results:
He benched banged up, high-price players with scorers’ mentalities in Andray Blatche and Rashard Lewis and decided to go with energetic, low-cost players more willing to do the dirty...

Just when things seemed like they were getting worse, the Wizards finally got their first win Tuesday night against the Raptors 93-78. Rashard Lewis and Nick Young led the Wizards in scoring with 15 points each.
Via Washington Post:
It felt good to get a win instead of getting booed,” Nick Young said after he and Rashard Lewis led the team with 15 points apiece...
Nick Young, Jan Vesely, Shelvin Mack, Chris Singleton and Jordan Crawford visited season ticket holders in the District, Maryland and Virginia on Monday afternoon, delivering those tickets in person and thanking the fans for their continued support of the team despite a dismal start.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall announced today that his eponymous dance will now conclude with silent weeping and a holding of the head.
“You always have to keep it fresh. I don’t want the kids to see the J...
Rashard Lewis and Nick Young each had 15 points to lead the Washington Wizards to their first win after eight straight losses, a 93-78 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night. After the worst start in franchise history, Coach Flip Saunders left Andray Blatche and Lewis on the bench to start the game.
Nine games into the season, the Wizards finally got their first win against Toronto. The win was much needed and the road to get there was pretty ugly.
There were cringe worthy airballs and alleged fights with coaches. There was Flip Saunders getting ejected and 30 cent tickets. Andray Blatche goaltending a free throw. JaVale campaigning for All-Star votes while his team sat...
