You don't need classy guys. Just get good players and win.
I feel like this whole cleaning house of bad attitudes and getting classy players was a way for Grunfeld to avoid taking responsibility for terrible results. 'O no Ernie has a good eye for talent, it's just that the players screwed up his master plan.'
It's also a way for Ted to market his pathetic team. Don't mind the Ls everyone, we have some really nice guys on our team.

Nice 3 JaVale (1st of his career)... Glad he's gone, but a shame he couldn't live up to his talent here.
I think it's kind of unrespectful- Ovie
Its a shame he won't live up to his talent anywhere
I just don't understand how a kid who grew up around basketball (elite level women's basketball no less) could have such disgustingly bad fundamentals. Not our problem anymore
Yeah, he is blessed with great athleticism and good height. He even has begun to fill out his frame more since his rookie days, but the mental side will probably always be a mystery to him.
I was thinking the other day how things COULD have gone.. Blatche as a 2nd rounder was a great pick back when you could grab HS players, and should have at least been a solid bench forward. Also had good glue guys like Dominic McGuire (2nd rounder), Steve Blake (2nd rounder), and even Nick Young is a good shooter. Throw on what McGee could be with some smarts in him, and that could have been a deep team. I guess we just never had the superstar player to put those guys around and asked them to do too much without properly developing them?
You never realized this while they were here? That team could have been really good. Its just a damn shame ALL of those guys were idiots. If just one or two were, it would've been manageable.
But I just don't understand how a guy with one of the better women's basketball players of all time as a mother couldn't have any semblance of a mind to go with his athleticism
With the Wizards luck, they will lose the lottery and finish 4th in the draft. According to Chad Ford's big board, Ben McLemore is the #4 prospect though I found it hilarious that his description said "McLemore getting some Ray Allen comps ." Shouldn't Beal's early play have retired anyone from ever getting Ray Allen comps?
btw, Len is #2 on Ford's big board.
Hansbrough breaking all the white boy stereotypes with that form.
Beal won rookie of the month.
Imagine if he had a point guard to pass to him.
He averaged 13.4 points on 13.6 shots a game in December. Thats not good. Though I agree that Wall, even if he does lose some of his explosiveness, will do wonders for Beal when he returns
He played a little better than he did in November, but he still looks like a good college player trying to adjust to the pros. He gets his jumper blocked once every 2 or 3 games (most players get a jumper blocked 2 or three times per year).
Waiters was hurt for part of that time. I have no idea how he beat out Lillard.
It goes by conference. Beal won Eastern conference, Lillard won Western.
Wall back to practicing on limited basis. 2nd half playoff run, here we come. A little off topic but it is amazing how much the Hornets fan base dislikes GV. Given what we know, would you contemplate a Wall for GV trade straight up?
Why would you ask that question, you ass
That's the kind of post we'd pull from Pack Pride and laugh at for 5 pages.
For those with Insider. It's long, so I'm not cutting and pasting the whole thing.
Good Fits: Alex Len, Shabazz Muhammad, Ben McLemore, Anthony Bennett
Questionable Fits: Nerlens Noel, Cody Zeller, Alex Poythress
Best Fit: If I was the Wizards GM and had the No. 1 pick and the draft was today, I'd probably have this narrowed down to Muhammad and Bennett. It's a tough call, but I'd give the edge to Muhammad right now. His great work ethic and competitive fire, combined with an improving jump shot is just what the Wizards need to start turning around this mess.
I tend to agree. Shabazz is quietly having a ridiculous year and Bennett is my top overall guy.

Love the name calling. The point was with the Wiz luck of players returning from major injuries, how much fear do they have with Wall's knee? By next season, they will have to make a decision to extend him or not.Of course I am hopeful he can return to form.
Yeah let's make roster moves based on luck!
Even though I like McLemore more than Beal, I don't think you can use back to back high picks on SG's.
Lunch Special: Each weekday near noontime, a Denver Post sports writer dares to dish. In this installment, Mark Kiszla touches on the performance this season of 7-footer JaVale McGee with the Nuggets.
It's only a matter of time before the Andray Blatche stuff starts happening in Brooklyn -- if it hasn't already.
