Washington-wizards-draft
The high ceiling on this Wiz team was in the 40-win range, and that was before John Wall and Nene got hurt. Now here they are at 0-7, the NBA’s last remaining winless team. Undefeated at losing! Without Wall and Nene, the Wizards are as bad as I can remember them being, which is really bad, you know. They’re bottom-five in shooting percentage, three-point shooting percentage and free throws attempted. The leading scorer, Bradley Beal, is averaging 11.3 points. That is not many points. The thing is, Wall and Nene’s return isn’t sure to turn it around. Washington started 0-8 last season. Wall played in those games. They’ve gone 43-105 the past two. Wall played in 135 of those.

The numbers told the whole story for Washington: 29.8 percent shooting from the field (25-for-84); 16.1 percent shooting from 3-point range (5-for- 31); 17 turnovers; outscored 46-24 in the paint...

WE Rant: Wizards Testing Our Hope, Optimism and Patience

“Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t” – Jay Z Jay was not lying (pun intended). 0-6. Ladies and gentlemen, that right there is the record for your Washington Wizards. You can’t make this up. Time and time again, I come up with excuses on why Wizards fans need more patience.  But it’s very hard when I’m trying to explain it year in and year out.  Excuses have ranged...
