Wizards forced to repair instead of renovate at 2017 trade deadline

If you watch HGTV, you know the biggest enemy of any home renovation is repairs. You see a couple kick off a renovation with big dreams of a fancy new kitchen, but once they start tearing down walls they run into plumbing issues and wiring problems and rotting wood. That full kitchen renovation winds up being new cabinets and one of those hypoallergenic, hands-free trash cans. At...

Bogdanovic, McCullough, the Wizards and the Trade Deadline

not only do the Wizards add some much-needed bench scoring, they also rid themselves of likely their worst contract. And while parting with a first-round pick isn’t ideal, Grunfeld has a cringe-worthy history when it comes to drafting outside of the top three; Kelly Oubre and Tomas Satoransky are the only two players Grunfeld has drafted after No. 3 overall that are still on the...

The Washington Wizards have a tough road ahead

The Washington Wizards are hoping that after the All-Star break, they are able to pick up where they left off.  Since Jan. 14, the Wizards have a record of 15-2 and their both losses could have been victories but a buzzer beater shot by Marcus Morris and the miraculous shot by LeBron James to send the game into overtime resulted in those losses. Their first game after the break...

Why the Washington Wizards are the biggest threat to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the East

When the Washington Wizards got off to a 6-11 start to the NBA season many of their pessimistic fans believed that this would be yet another season to throw into the garbage bin.  When you look at what the Wizards have been through the past few seasons it’s easy to see why their fans are perpetually concerned.  Can Bradley Beal stay healthy for a whole season?  Is Scott Brooks...

Wizards using strong scoring balance, better defense, to contend in NBA’s East

Over the last two Mondays, we’ve seen how good the Washington Wizards can truly be. After losing to Cleveland just over a week ago, 140-135, in an overtime classic that TNT’s Kevin Harlan deemed maybe the best regular season game he ever saw — if you haven’t seen LeBron’s buzzer-beating bank shot to force overtime, you must — Washington blew out Oklahoma City 120-98 on...

Is Bradley Beal finally good?

Remember when the Wizards were chronic underachievers because John Wall and Bradley Beal couldn’t get along? Neither do I, because that narrative wasn’t true. While Washington’s star-studded backcourt probably suffered from a lack of chemistry, they also suffered from Beal not actually being that good. To be sure, the 23-year-old was a solid NBA guard, but the comparisons...
