Webster is a freaking 3 point machine.

About half Knicks supporters in there last night (they regularly generate among the biggest opposition turn-outs - used to be even bigger when Steve Francis was playing there), but that fourth quarter shut 'em up.

Also - at the last two home matches the security people didn't use the wands.

Bet it was fun to be there as a Wiz fan.   It was even fun to watch on TV.    TV shots clearly showed lots of NY fans.    I hope they get some more parts for Wall.   He's the crapz.

Wall still makes really dumb decisions sometimes and plays out of control too much.  He has so much potential - I don't know why he's basically the same player now that he was last year and the year before.

Webster is a good player.  Even Ariza has started showing up a bit more recently.

Ovie in sneakers.   :)    I like Wall's attitude as well.   He doesn't back down.   He'll get it right.

Not quite that good (12-23 since that first win over Portland) but here's something even nicer: starting with the upset of Oklahoma City on 7th January, the Wizards are 9-7 (http://espn.go.com/nba/team/schedule/_/name/wsh/washington-wizards).

They'll probably sell a lot more jerseys if they're actually wearable

Hopefully these guys dont play themselves out of the lottery because without another 'star,' the team isn't winning anything

They look a lot better since Wall has come back.  It looks like they'd be a playoff team, just as Ted said, if Wall had been healthy the whole year. 

Still not good enough to justify keeping Grunfeld on after his ten year reign of error, but definitely not the garbage team that they looked like they were in the early part of the season.  The Bulls have been missing Rose the whole year but they never looked like trash with him out of the lineup.

Beal looks solid.  Okafor and Ariza are solid.  Nene and Wall are good players - Wall needs to stop turning the ball over so much and Nene just needs to be more consistent.  Webster is a decent player.  They can make the playoffs next year and maybe make some noise if they bring in another good player to add to this group.

This is the thing I'm afraid of. But then again, I don't mind this team extending their winning streak. We definitely have great supporting pieces but we do need another 'star' pick.

Wall and Beal look like the two stud, backcourt pieces we've needed for awhile.

If wall and beal both pan out (I'm not sold on beal yet, and wall needs to get more consistent), then maybe they can lour a free agent front court player?

9-3 in games with Wall, Nene and Beal all playing.  There's a good team in there waiting to happen.  Wall is developing a better jumper which is going to help him get to the rim more consistently when defenses have to respect him.  Beal is Ray Allen all over again.  Nene is a couple of inches in height away from being a star.

Ideally, they play well down the stretch, still don't make the playoffs, and land someone with legit 7' size to develop behind Okafor/Nene for a couple of years.

Ideally they flame out, get the number 1 over all, it turns into someone the team can build around, and they compete for a title in a couple of years

This is a pretty weak draft overall so we would not be missing much by dropping in the lottery.  The three best players in the draft are 2 SG which we have no use for and nerlens noel who is crap offensively. 

What we need is to acquire an above average SF and we could get somewhere.
