A force where? Damn sure aint the NBA. Team many moves from being laughable to respectable. And even when they become respectable you gotta keep into consideration the East not being so strong. You can be 8 games under .500 and make the playoffs. So that aint saying much at all.

I don't think they will contend for a tittle or anything but they could be a decent to good team like make the playoffs 5 or more years possibly win 50 games maybe win pass the first round. They'll probably be like the Nuggets were with Melo or how the Hawks are right now. The Bulls had similar team to Washington when Rose was a rookie but they ended up trading there young players and rebuilding the team.

Yah, the Wizards are about to be sick if they get a legit scorer or 2. The thought of Mcgee,Vessely and Singleton all running the floor with Wall while using their length and athleticism to defend on the other end is just sick. They will be an absolutely elite defensive team sooner than later.

Young is not their 2 guard going forward though. He can be a J.R. Smith type who can drop some offense in spurts, but I don't think he's well rounded enough to start. He did improve his D this past year, but its still amongst the worst for starting 2s and his rebound and assist rates are also amongst the worst in basketball. Wall is a passer first and he needs an elite scorer in the backcourt with him. Or if they are going to start Young, they need a very good 2/3 or 1/2 type off the bench. A Jason Terry, Jamal Crawford or Wilson Chandler would be nice.

I'm hopeful for Vesely and Singleton, and Wall should become a great defensive guard, but I don't think any team with Javale in the middle can be close to an elite defensive team.

If Young stays they already have a Terry, Crawford type off the bench in Jordan Crawford. I don't think people who didn't watch the Wizards often at the end of the year realize how good he is. He's able to get into the lane, has a nice midrange game, is a good playmaker. My big complaint is he takes too many threes but hopefully that improves.

personally, I think all their young talent outside of wall and probably crawford is massively overrated. McGee is such a freaking dumbass and blatche has one of the worst, most selfish attitudes in the league. Those guys will not improve that much from where they are right now.

^^^This.

Was coming in to post something like that.

McGee has too low of basketball IQ to be an anchor in the middle. Yeah, he gets a lot of blocks but its because he jumps for every single pumpfake.

He was scored on 49% of the time when posted up down low, which puts him near the bottom in all of basketball. It just shows that your length doesnt mean much if you dont have the instincts/strength to defend down low.

Wizards would be smart not to match Nick Young getting a Full MLE offer for 5 years. That is the type of contract that hurts a bad team as they are attempting to rebuild. Young is very replacable for his shoot first mentality, and they seem to have a better SG prospect in Jordan Crawford.

True.

Blatche is a clown. Antawn Jamison did his best to take him under his wing and teach him what it takes to be a professional, and Blatche still doesnt have a work ethic or act in a professional manner. He took Jamison's absence to stat-pad and parlayed it into a new contract, then gets back to his lazy ways. Hes the type of guy who NBA owners get upset that they get fooled by for a lot of money.

He even got into a fight outside of Love nightclub in DC with Javale McGee. Now hes spending the offseason hosting Lapdance Tuesdays down in Miami.

JM getten some hate =/

He averaged 10/8 with 2+ blocks a game.55% shooting,you can do somthing with this kid.Yeah his game is super rough,but he's already one of the best shot blockers in the league.(had 12 blocks in 1 game last year,was second best overall)

i think he can be a poor mans ben wallace type,not as strong on D but better on O./flame shield

John Wall has many steps to take, it's going to take years, but he has all the tools to become a top 3 point in the league. If he puts in the work that is.

It's just too bad the Wizards have nothing else.
-Nick Young is a one dimensional ballhog who will never win you any games.
-Blatche is a low efficiency, low IQ scorer who is not going to get any better.
-Yi Jian Lian is past his prime already.
-Javale McGee will never be better than Samuel Dalembert.


John Wall better hope Big Pimpin' Vesely can play ball.

I don't know the perception of Blatche around the league but he's not overrated in DC, crowd groans when he touches the ball. It's a shame he has some ability but he doesn't bring it every game or all game. I preferred when Booker was playing for him even though he's undersized he goes all out.
