Found January 30, 2013 on Blog So Hard Sports:
The Washington Wizards have finally started looking like a real NBA basketball team as of late. Many fans are starting to wonder if the playoffs are a real possibility. Although they are mathematically not out of the playoff run, realistically speaking it is more likely that the terrible start to the season will be too big of a hole to dig out of and the Wizards will find themselves in the lottery again come June. Earlier in the season, when things were looking very bad, we asked if Shabazz Muhammad was the prize at the end of all the losses. At that time, it was extremely early in the NCAA season, and things were still (and still are) working their way out on the prospect lists. It is still early, but Jonathan Tjarks of SB Nation put together his top 15 prospects for the 2013 draft. His top 5 prospects are Isaiah Austin, Ben McLemore, Marcus Smart, Anthony Bennett, and Alex Len. The big thing to note is that he has Shabazz dropped all the way down to 13 on his list with concerns about whether he can be an efficient scorer at the next level. Draft Express has a differing opinion of Muhammad, as they still have him ranked #1 overall: With what appears like no can’t miss, clear cut #1 overall pick, things will continue to shake up as the NCAA season rolls on and prospects will continue to move up and down on boards throughout various sites. So while there is still a lot of college basketball (and NBA for that matter) left to play, the purpose of this article is for you to play Wizards GM. Who would you take #1 overall if the Wizards won the lottery? Let us know in the comments section below. And if you have it narrowed down to a few, feel free to mention which players.   Related posts: Is Shabazz Muhammad The Prize at the End of All These Wizards Losses?
