This is great stuff from Wittman -

Quote from: Randy Wittman
“We just play, with no concept of rhyme or reason, understanding what’s going on, the concept of the game.”

Some of that seems to fit within a coach's job description

Phil Jackson and Red Auerbach couldn't win with this group.  I'm sure Witman did not tell AJ Price to try 7 three pointers and Trevor Ariza to try 8.  He doesn't tell Crawford to get a rebound, then keep dribbling until he turns the ball over or launches up some ridiculous shot.

The Wizards are, in fact, third in the NBA in 3-pointers attempted (25.7/match), trailing only Houston and New York...and they're also tied with Sacramento for dead-last in the league in 3-point percentage (.279) (full list: http://espn.go.com/nba/statistics/team/_/stat/offense-per-game/sort/avgThreePointFieldGoalsAttempted)

The other winless team, 0-8 Detroit, plays at Philly (4-3) tonight...will either they or the Wizards (at 4-4 Dallas tonight) get a win?

When was the last time the Wizards didn't look like a bad rec league team?

if the coach isn't responsible for imparting "concept of rhyme or reason, understanding what’s going on, the concept of the game" then what exactly is their job? The GM gave him crap, and he's getting terrible results. Unfortunately, Ted doesn't believe in cleaning house

Some players will never play with any concept of rhyme or reason or understand the game.  Like many of the current Wizards.  No coach could make Jordan Crawford share the ball.

I'm guessing that after the next gm cleans house, Crawford ends up as a 7th or 8th man not taking very many shots

Even during the Arenas years, it was basically the Arenas show.  Kind of rec league-like. 

Maybe when they had Rod Strickland with Webber and Howard?

Neither will win tonight, I'm guessing.

In all likelihood the 07-08 regular season - the final season of the Wizards era I call the False Spring (2004-08) with four playoff trips...a playoff series win in 2005 (over the Bulls, their only such series win in the last 30 years) followed by three straight playoffs serving as LeBron's first-round cannon fodder...since then it's been back to 1990s grimness.

Now getting blown out by 46 year old Vince Carter and the Mavs.  And this is without Nowitzki playing.

Quote from: Jordan Crawford
“We be forgetting plays that we be going over a lot and I think that’s hurting us,” Crawford said.


This was posted on twitter - it is a quote from Jordan Crawford.  That about sums up this year's Wizards.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wizards-insider/wp/2012/11/05/jordan-crawford-providing-offensive-boost-for-wizards/

What a crap show.  But I can't stop watching.  It's like the 08 or 09 Nats.  Just for 30 years in a row.  Plus, the Pistons won tonight so the Wiz stand alone as the sole winless team in teh NBA.

Feeling bad for these guys. They can't catch a break. That mayo roll was gross. Then the mavs had like three bricks but got a good bounce and the rebound

They are trying, at least in the second halves I have watched. Mavs didn't get many good looks in the second half. Twice they played good d for twenty two seconds only to have carter and some guy with long hair chuck a three over a defender.

It seems like some times seraphin is a fumbling spaz and other times he hits everything. people nag about crawford, but sometimes he is the only person on the floor with a prayer of scoring

It's true, at least they try.  It's better than watching Blatche and McGee and Young out there.  The guys currently on the Wiz just aren't good enough.  Can't shoot and can't rebound.  What exactly does Vesely do well?  Okafor and Booker had 15 points and 10 rebounds.  The starting big guys for the Mavs, Kaman and Brand, had 34 and 20.  So they cna't outscore them, outrebound them, or defend them - what exactly are they good for?  Seraphin is the only 4/5 with any hope of competing, even against guys that many consider to be washed up.

The two highest draft picks currently playing, Vesely and Beal, look terrible right now.  Beal at least has some hope.  The Mavs rookie 2nd round Jae Crowder had a much better game than the very highly paid Ariza who appears also to be good at something other than scoring, rebounding, or defending - what exactly, I'm not sure.

End rant.
