Ted Leonsis IMO is targeting the 2014-15 season as the real turn around year. Grunfeld and Wittman expire. Most of the team will be up for new contracts, most notably Okariza. Beal will be in year three. If Wall is still around maybe the team will be good. Until then this team is bag of crap unless the plan changes.
We don't know what we think, we don't know what we know. All we have to go on, is what we say and what we show...
I hate how Beal is playing, but I'd still pick him 10 times out of 10. The only other player you could make an argument for would be Barnes (without the benefit of hindsight), and while he's playing well, I wouldn't change my mind just yet.
That said, it is alarming the lack of skill Beal has offensively. If his shot isn't falling he doesn't have the handles nor quickness to get by his defender and when he does get to the basket, he doesn't finish. Moral of the story, he needs to start hitting shots.

in fact the surprise with Waiters is that he a really good shooter, but struggles a bit finishing around the basket.
Drummond playing well too
its still early days, but some of these other rookies are playing better.

"John Wall will never be as good as Kyrie Irving was in his first week in the NBA" - David Falk, published February 14, 2013.
Beal better become a lights-out shooter because all he does is camp out behind the 3 pt line and wait for someone to feed him the ball.
I think when Wall gets back, this team can start winning games. They may still not be playoff material but they will be able to handle some of the weaker teams.
The only choices were Beal, Barnes and MAYBE Drummond at 3 for our team.
Again, I don't think anyone is making excuses for Beal. His play has been woeful and, yes, many rookies are playing better than he is. It's tremendously disappointing.
People questioned me when I said the Wizards would win 18 games. At this point, I think 14 wins is more like it. Matter of fact, if this team gets double digits in wins I'd be surprised.
This team won't make the playoffs until 2015 at least. And that's being generous. Worst eye for talent ever. We draft like dog feces and make horrible trades and signings.
