Bill Parcells does not agree with this.
He was a cool ass dude. Talked BS with us for most of the game. Felt bad for jan because he didn't play
I get that all fanbases get overexcited when their team wins a few in a row but my God, DC fans take it to another level. Redskins win a few games in a row..."we have the best QB ever and have a real shot at the Super Bowl!!" Awful NBA team inevitably wins a few in a row as nearly every team does annually, "John Wall makes this a .750 team and the playoffs are realistic."
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
Yeah, getting excited about teams that have been at best average for the past decade sure does suck!
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
If Rondo's ACL is torn, then .500 might no longer be necessary.
I know what the wiz need.
I don't think it'll be necessary nor do I think Bullets can get there.
Good lord you are insufferable.
The team is completely different than the one that started the season. I don't mean psychologically, but personnel wise. However, they aren't making up enough ground to get to the playoffs.
IIRC, the starting five was Okafor (not a good low post defender or low post scorer...not even a very good rebounder), Booker (undersized and foul prone), Ariza (looks very old and has no jumper), Beal and Price (shoot first and ask questions later).
Now Nene is a legit post defender and offensive player, Okafor can play weakside D and shoot midrange J's, Webster has replaced Ariza for shooting and slashing, Beal is a little more confident, and Wall is getting easy baskets for him and others. Some guys getting big minutes early for us are now either on the bench or out of the league.
.....but we're still not climbing out of this hole.
Rajon Rondo's ACL is torn, the Celtics are definitely going to finish below 500 now and it means the 8th spot Is now open for a 38-44(or even worse) type of team. It's not that much of a reach to think the Wizards can make the playoffs now because they are competing with the likes of Philadelphia, Detroit, Toronto and a depleted Celtics team for that last spot. The Wizards with John Wall are clearly better than all of those teams.
they may be better than those teams but the hole they dug themselves to start the year will probably be to much to overcome. I am going to say they come up just short. But all in all thats not horrific. Another lottery pick in a year with a lot of big men who will be available from picks 4-13. Its good they are finally going back in the right direction, people in this area love Basketball and will get behind that team in a heartbeat if they put forth a consistent winner.
Pic Sigs are for losers.
Rondo is out for the whole season. Celtics win a max 36 games.

for the record, I consider it 100% acceptable for Baltimore fans to consider the Bullets and the Caps their "local" teams. They market heavily in Baltimore, the Sun and local media cover them, and its a 45 minute drive. So your trolling here is uncalled for.
Except that what he said is completely true and something I've said many times before. I do not know what is in the water in DC, but their fans are the most delusional that I have ever encountered, and I know a lot of people from other cities who have spent time in the DC area and have, unprovoked, made the exact same comments.
I can only strive to be as even-handed and unbiased as you are about everything.
Coming from the guy who trolls Ravens threads 24-7, although you have been noticeably absent lately. Hmmm.........NO WEAPON!
As long as wall shoots less than 2 jumpers per game they will be fine. Just put up Stockton assist numbers
Thanks for coming and posting on a topic YOU REALLY CARE ABOUT. It is very interesting to have alternative points of view expressed so freely and in a douchey manner as you did. Your post has meant so much to me and has expressed what so many others probably think but are unable to articulate in the succinct manner you did. So hey, THANKS A LOT.
It takes a special kind of insufferable douche bag to to still be able to show off that patented inferiority complex in a thread about a sub .500 team in DC when your team is playing in the Super Bowl next week. Yet here we are with two such douche bags posting back to back. You guys never disappoint.
To put it simply, fuck that trash called Baltimore.
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
"No weapon" is partial birth abortion and it becoming the rallying cry of this team is simply embarrassing.
this is basically a comment they would make...
I'm going to create a computer program that whinily responds with a misplaced air of superiority anytime a Ravens fan posts and save you the time. Anytime a Ravens fan makes any comment about anything outside Baltimore, you automatically go to the stupid inferiority complex thing as if picking a team because of the cute dolphin logo when you were a kid somehow makes you superior.
And good job with the old how can you post about anything else other than your team currently playing well? No one should comment on topics other than their team during Super Bowl week! That minute could have been so much better spent! You never disappoint.
