The Washington Wizards’ abysmal season last year was overshadowed by an even worse one from the Charlotte Bobcats.
This year, they are taking center stage with only four wins so far. They have been playing without point guard John Wall, but you have to wonder how big of a difference he could possibly make.
The good news for the Wizards is that with all the bad seasons they have been having, they have built up some high draft picks. The bad news? Well, they have pretty much gone to waste.
Most notably Jan Vesely, who the Wizards took with the sixth overall pick in 2011.
Vesely STILL has more fouls than points on the year. (Don’t believe me? It’s 54-49, I promise)
Bradley Beal (third overall, 2012) is in his rookie season so it is too early to make a real judgment on him. Wall (first overall, 2010) is going to take a big step back in his development after sitting out an extended period of time.
But the point is that the Wizards are not a young team playing towards the futu...
