Default Washington Wizards. Worse FO of All Time

Think of the talent they discarded over the past 20 years.

Chris Webber
Rasheed Wallace
Rod Strickland
Andre Blatche
Shaqin a Fool
Nick Young
Gilbert Arenas
Juwuan Howard

All these cats left and balled somewhere else because management did not get the most out of these dudes. What other franchise can say this?

Wizards actually made some moves I thought were decent in the off-season. Brought in Nene, Okafor, and Ariza. Drafted Beal to play next to Wall. Obviously it hasn't worked out, but I think the new owner is at least trying.

They hardly got rid of Arenas. Keeping him and letting him be a PG was the mistake. Trading him when he was ass was hardly a mistake.


McGee is talented but they got back a talent that is ready to play now and to help change the locker room.


Blatche had to go.


Bringing in Nene was great...bringing in Okafor and Ariza was stupid.


Watching PTI yesterday, I really started to believe that the story had some truth to it (the Harden trade)...if accurate...huge facepalm.

they also traded the 5th pick in 09 which could have been rubio/steph curry for mike miller+randy foye . then they could have drafted Klay Thompson or Faried or Shumpert or Parsons, but no they drafted Jan Vesley which is arguably the worst player in the first round

Don't forget they had Ben Wallace also.

They traded Chris Webber away for an old Mitch Richmond.

They traded away Rip Hamilton for Jerry Stackhouse.

To be fair, Wallace was a nobody back then. He wasn't any good til he was in Detroit. He was in Washington for two years then Orlando before Detroit. I assume you were too young to have seen those games because if you had you wouldn't have made that comment.

He didn't get playing time back then.

Per 36 minutes, he avg avg 7 pts and 10.5 boards and 2.5 blocks in Washington.

Arenas at that point was declining - he needed to go.
Howard needed to go as well.

But you didn't mention Rip Hamilton for Jerry Stackhouse. Terrible.
And turning down sending Kwame Brown for Elton Brand, who at time was All-Star caliber.
Or how the Wizards could have drafted Pau Gasol, Joe Johnson or Tyson Chandler, Tony Parker, Zach Randolph over Kwame Brown.

But Wall and Beal could turn out to be special. Let's see.

Webber was disrespectful to the owner.
And Richmond at that time was one of the few players that Jordan respected.

Agreed.
Those three were brought in for veteran presence for Wall, Vesely, Beal, and to change the locker room culture.

Yeah, decent "looking" moves with fat contracts.

The Nene move was great tho. They screwed the rest up tho and now Nene is on the bench for the Wizards...if that doesn't bring the lol's then I don't know what does. Wall is going to request a trade and I think it's obvious.

You can take Arenas off the list.
