Default Watch the Wizards emerge as a playoff contender

1: Wall
2: Crawford
3: Young
4: Blatche
5: Mcgee

Bench: Evans, Lewis, Yi, Howard

All we do is draft a good big man and watch us make the playoffs next season. Believe.

Oh, and fire Flip Saunders. And sign Jerry Sloan lolololololol

If Wall, Young, Crawford and McGee keep developing its definitely possible, I don't think Yi and Howard and will be back next year though, I hope we do something in free agency.

You'll need more than that. Terrible defensive team right there and Crawford/Young are both going to end up as 6th man types at best IMO. They put up the stats on a crappy team, but I don't see them being starters on a winner. You need a true defensive C and a star SF or SG.

Harrison Barnes could fit that role hopefully and I like what I see out of Javale

Yeah if Barnes enters Id love him, he is what this team needs, I think we are good at pretty much every other position for the future, SF is the main question mark. If all of these guys like Wall, Crawford, Young, McGee and Blatche can live up to their potential this team could be really good in the next few years, especially if we get Barnes as well.

I also think Wizards have some cap space right? maybe we could sign some mid level free agents, although I'm not sure how much cap space we have because I know Lewis takes up a ton.

Someone on ESPN said it best. Javale is already teh best shot blocker in the league probably, but he has no BB IQ. I think he's a guy coming off a good team's bench. Blatche on the other hand, can be special if he gets his head on straight. Wall needs to stay on his case full time.

If they could add Nene or Chandler and a SF like Barnes or Derrick Williams, they'd be pretty sick.

they needa somehow acquire another great player to join with wall. my dream would be getting DMC since him and wall are already good together.

what if griffin came here when he becomes a free agent ? except thats not happening

Kanter would be perfect I think. He's big,strong and extremely skilled with a high BB IQ. Not an elite athlete and doesn't have elite length,but that probably just makes him a nice compliment to Mcgee at the C spot. Those 2 could lock it down.

You can do better than DMC. It'll take a little time though as the assets you have aren't great. Try to land a good draft pick and hope you can pull some stuff off by taking on salary OKC style.
