They are sitting out of the playoffs which is my point because they don't have this overwhelming team that will suffocate you defensively or out gun you offensively that people are trying to insinuate by saying it's not fair to compare. They have 5 or so wins, and the wizards have 1, which came from the raptors, and 12 losses. Wins DO matter because everything outside of stats, and wins and losses are merely opinion, and not facts. And the facts say the wizards were the better team than the wolves, pre-rubio. Ricky Rubio got anthony tolliver and randolph looking good, and john wall can't get it done with rashard lewis, and nick young? Cmon now I'm not hearing that. You say they have size and length? The wizards have javale mcgee who is a legit 7 footer and leads the league in blocks, versus the wolves having darco milic????? I'm not trying to hear that. Nick Young is a better offensive player than wesley johnson as well. The x factor the wolves have is kevin love and a new coach, from whom they've had to more or less relearn with in a shortened training camp, meanwhile the wizards should have already known the core plays and had them down pact to the point where they should have only had to come to camp to get in shape, and work on some new things. Rubio has more upside and more impact, and more willingness to defend it seems despite having a physically inferior frame. John Wall is an immature leader, and example for his teammates. You think nash, rondo, cp3, rose, or any point guard that leads their team would be dancing around when your down 20? Not putting people in place for doing off the back oops when your down 20? Picking up needless techs when your down 20? I aint hearing that sh*t you speaking bruh.
Spoken like a fan who doesn't have to suffer through Wizards games. Rashard Lewis is a shell of himself, beyond washed up and two steps slower than any of his opposing SFs and Nick Young is the type of player who will turn an easy spin-layup combo into a contested fadeaway by spinning the opposite direction - think Kobe without the basketball IQ or competitive fire. For every step McGee takes, his dumbass takes ten steps back, like with the off the backboard fiasco.
I do agree that Wall should be a better leader and shouldn't sulk so much on the court. There are some possessions he'll come down pass it to Blatche just to watch Blatche hold the ball for five seconds, do his horrible patented behind the back dribble into a bricked fadeaway.
Wall did get fed up two weeks ago and yelled at Flip to "Get him out the fcking game!!" in reference to Blatche. At this rate Wall will start going through the motions until his contract is up and he can get the hell outta DC. The owner wants Wall and the fans to be patient so he can build like the Thunder, as if Kevin Durants come out of college every year
Hell, Wall put up 38 points, 8 a.ssists, 6 boards, 4 steals and a block and the team STILL lost
