In this his 8th season in the NBA, 26-year old Martell Webster is finally getting a prolonged opportunity to strut his stuff. It’s fair to say playing alongside John Wall has opened up all kinds of new doors for his career. Since entering the Wizards starting lineup on December 7th, Webster ranks ninth in the league in three-point makes (109) and 8th in three-point accuracy (45.6%). In 15 games post All-Star Break he’s averaging 14.8 points in 34 minutes, connecting on 46.8% of his treys for 2.9 makes per game (3.3 in March). On March 16th versus Phoenix, he set a career-high with 34 points and tied a career-high with seven three-pointers (previously set in 2010). Despite his 6’7 235 pound stature, Webster has been labeled as a “specialist” since being drafted out of high school in 2006. Washington has unleashed his unique dead-eye range rather than nitpicking his shortcomings (e.g. he’s making 39.2% of his layups) and questioning h...

Martell Webster has been arguably the Wizards’ most pleasant surprise this season. Failing to live up to his lottery pick billing with the Portland Trailblazers, Webster was traded to Minnesota in June 2010, and later waived by the team this past July.
Webster worked out for several teams before signing with the Wizards. In Washington, he’s regained his form, registering...
John Wall has been playing some inspired basketball lately Ever since the 2010 NBA Draft, the Wizards have been for the most part, blessed by the presence of a Johnathan Hildred Wall Jr. on their team. Not only for the 16 points and eight assists he brings to the court on a nightly basis, but also for the cost of said production. Even though Wall was the top pick in the draft, he...
I’ll totally break this out next time I hit a jumper in a pickup game, even if it breaks all the rules. Martell Webster, by the way, is having a remarkable year with career highs across the board. He’s even shooting 45 percent from three, which is just off the NBA lead. Didn’t see that one coming.

Don’t act like you’re surprised the Washington Wizards would do something like this. Just a week ago, we reported that Wizards point guard John Wall, believes that he deserved to be a max player. Well, it appears that the folks at the top of the hierarchy in the organization agrees with him. In a [...]

The post John Wall expects a max deal from the Washington Wizards appeared first on Players View.
When the Wizards made the late addition of Martell Webster to the 2012-13 roster, there was no big press conference, no fanfare, and to be quite honest, the reception amongst media and bloggers was fairly subdued. The good news is that Martell has shown to be more than just a one dimensional player as some alluded to.
Seven months later, the Wizards now find themselves with a...
The Wizards are ready to offer a max deal to prized point guard, John Wall
If John Wall didn’t miss the first 33 games of the season, could the Washington Wizards have been a fringe playoff team? The Wiz are 18-15 with Wall in the starting lineup. Wall also is shooting a career high 44.4% from the field. In just his third season, the 22 year-old Wall is the face of a struggling...

Riding on the success of a 3-game win streak, you would think the Wizards have enough momentum going into a 4-game road trip. Well, after some delightful news coming from the NBA today, you may want to think again.
As WaPo's Michael Lee reported, John Wall earned a bit of a boost this afternoon when he was named the Eastern...
The Phoenix Suns and Washington Wizards haven’t exactly been lighting the world on fire this season. Maybe this is why this fan had a hard time staying awake during last night’s third quarter. After John Wall hit a long jumper, the camera zoomed into this Suns fan that had seen enough. I guess I can’t blame him, the Suns have been one of the worst NBA teams this season.

In 2010 we saw John Wall lead Kentucky to blowouts over East Tennessee State, and Wake Forest before killing the Cinderella story of the Cornell Big Red and finally ending their run at the hands of the West Virginia Mountaneers. In 2012 Bradley Beal earned a spot on the regional all-tournament team leading his team to victories over Virginia, Norfolk State and Marquette before losing...
The Washington Wizards have rolled to a winning streak on their home floor, but they haven't been able to match that success on the road.
If history is any indication, they might have a difficult time putting an end to those woes Wednesday night.
Washington looks to stop a five-game skid in Phoenix and four-game road losing streak overall as it tries to beat the Suns for the...
