Last time the Wizards were at true inflection point they settled for good, not great. Will they aim higher now? It won’t come without significant risk.
Don’t let his 40-point performance against the Cavaliers fool you—D’Angelo Russell has been rather underwhelming thus far. Just how much, you ask? Well…
What does Wall, Butler, Hayward, Davis and Cousins have in common? They’re stars on under-performers. And only one team is trending in the right direction.
The year is 2010, and the Brooklyn Nets have won the NBA Draft lottery. Landing John Wall is no small feat, but then they screw it all up.
John Wall, this transcendent point guard, is still stuck on this no good, very boring Wizards team. One that had quite the forgettable offseason.

It’s Draft Night 2012, and the Washington Wizards ship just-drafted Bradley Beal along with Trevor Ariza to OKC for James Harden. What happens next?

The Raptors’ lack of defensive intensity earned them an early summer vacation.
The Wizards were fortunate to take Game 1, but they’ll have to handle Toronto’s double-teams better if they want to win the series.

Can’t have an All-Star game without a few snubs.
The Wizards are in the playoff hunt, but they’ve got plenty of room for improvement.
