The Wizards are without question one of the worst teams in the NBA. Through 37 games this season, they have won back-to-back games only once. In order to have an 8-29 record, tons of things have to go wrong. After suffering a 20-point loss to the Warriors on Monday night, John Wall expressed his opinion about one of the reasons for the Wizards’ failure.

“We lost the game before we went on the court,” Wall told the Washington Times.  ”Too much joking in the locker room, too much joking through warm-ups.”

Washington coach Randy Wittman took the blame for the loss, saying that he had a sense before the game that his team wasn’t ready to play, which ultimately falls on the head coach.

This is the second time this season Wall has called out his teammates, with the first coming back in January when he said selfish play was plaguing the team. When you have guys like JaVale McGee who get benched for plays like this one and this one, it’s no surprise your team has the second-worst record in the NBA.

Wall could be one of the better point guards in the game if he had some pieces to work with, but at the moment he is stuck in a horrible situation. Guys are not taking the season seriously because it has turned into a joke. Considering it is only half over and the Wizards are showing absolutely zero signs of improvement, we can expect matters to get worse before the season ends.
