I know its 6 games, but we currently have the worst offensive rating in NBA history.
DC Sports: The Curse Is Real
It's amazing that a team with no shooters, no one capable of getting their own shot, no low post game, and currently no playmaking point guard is havving trouble scoring. Who could have guessed?
I think Vessely may be one of the worst draft picks in the history of the NBA. Although the Mike Miller and Randy Foye debacle is right up there.
Soooo, we got the Mavs tonight. Mavs have lost three in a row and shot 36% in their last game.
How do you guys think we'll do?
Well, you can't lose them all, can you? CAN YOU?
The Wizards will probably go 2-80 and still get the number 4 draft pick.
Wall came into the league setting an Oscar and Magic pace. In his third game he probably had a better game than any other #1 pick would have their rookie year. Maybe ever... Something like 29 pts on 56% shooting, 13 dimes, 9 steals... In his sixth game he got his first triple double, 19 points, 10 boards, 13 assists, six steals, one turnover. His sixth game. Only Magic Johnson has matched that. And he played for the showtime Lakers of course.
He's basically a mini LeBron James at the PG position. He might be the second most physically gifted player in the NBA behind LeBron.
He could easily average 13+ dimes a game playing for the Celtics, Thunder, Spurs, or Heat while leading the league in FT attempts among perimeter players.
But of course we're ruining him and he's playing for the worst organization of any recent #1. By far.
Consider that John is currently our longest tenured player. Just think about that for a moment and let how awful that is truly settle in. Since the time Stern read Wall's name on draft night, no other Wizard from before remains.
John Wall has not played with a single other legit NBA player for any kind of extended period of time in his entire career. He hasn't enjoyed a single full season with one decent teammate. Not great like CP3. Not really really good like Joakim Noah or Luol Deng. Not even good, like Anderson Varejao or Carlos Boozer. Not even decent enough like Deandre Jordan. Not even passable like Alonzo Gee.
The second best player of the Wall era is probably Trevor Booker. Really let that sink in.
Wall has been surrounded by complete. utter. heaping. despicable. trash.
Hopefully that changes moving forward...

But the guy hurts himself as much as anyone else too.
He could have eventually become a slightly poor man's Tyson Chandler if he wasn't such a damn clown. With him, it'll always be two steps forward and then a step back.
I for one don't regret trading him for a minute.

I'm cooling on Harden. I drafted him after his first two games and the dude has been just complete **** since then. Shooting 33% with 18 assists against 23 turnovers. He's been awful so far.
On top of that Kyle Lowry seriously hurt his ankle--my PG. And Boogie Cousins got suspended for two games.
I've been relying on Joakim Noah, Monta Ellis, Steph Curry, and Tim Duncan to keep me afloat...

"John Wall will never be as good as Kyrie Irving was in his first week in the NBA" - David Falk, published February 14, 2013.
about 40 min from tip-off. We're already down 8.
Seriously, I think a fake funeral out in front of the arena would be awesome.
