  1. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    What sucks is they gave this guy a supermax. What sucks is he showed up to camp fat with said injuries. What sucks is he spends too much time at the night clubs. What sucks is he flips gang signs during games. What sucks is he throws teammates under the bus. What sucks is he says he spoon-feeds players. But the Wiz find more space, and better shots, without him. What sucks is his mid-range game. What sucks is he constantly whines to the refs and is near the tops in the league in techs. What sucks is he constantly took plays off. What sucks is yelled FU at his coach during a practice when the coach challenged him. What sucks is he doesn't get a long with the better player on the team. What sucks is he declared he wanted to be an MVP when he should have been thinking about being a great teammate and winning more games. What sucks is his Instagram meltdowns. What sucks is his teammates go out for movie nights, while in the road, and he's never there. What sucks is he had great games, that he wanted to get up for (see Lakers), but sleepwalked against sub-.500 teams. That took about two minutes to write. John Wall sucks. And his contract may be the worst in all of sports.

    True. Unfortunately dominated by an overrated guard. Maarkanen is the #1 option in CHI. Lavine is up there too.

    Boom goes the dynamite.

    You may end up being right. What else would they have to move with Mahimni's expiring contract? Parker can walk (team won't take the $20M option) and then re-sign with Wiz. Portis could be had if they moved Mahimni. Still, what does that leave this team as? A fringe playoff team.

    How you gonna pull out that Otto blast from that past when Wall had A FEW of em THIS YEAR?

    It's funny because you're not able to send the end game in this. You just see two games. The Bulls are better positioned to compete, in the years ahead, before the Wiz. Wall's contract, as I've said for a few years now, is a cap killer. Right now, the Wiz are right at the $109M projected salary cap. Parker has a $20M team option for next year. He's gone. Players they could re-sign with that money: -Sato -Green -Ariza -Bryant -Portis -Decker -Randle Tell me who you're re-signing. It's widely reported Portis wants $16M. So how is that gonna work? Net game - both guys walk. The Wiz spend $20M re-signing Sato, Bryant, Ariza, Green, others. If they're lucky.

    Otto needed a change of scenery. And he's on a team that is positioned better than the Wiz to start to build up out the next few years. Oubre was ***. I know folks only like to chat about PPGs. But he's an awful defender. Last night he scored 25 points and was a -29. Some of that is who you play with. But he's consistently been a minus player. My conspiracy theory is the following - We've heard quite a few quotes from Ted and Beal about not tanking and trying to make the playoffs. I think Beal told Ernie/Ted that he'll stick with this team SO LONG AS THEY ARE COMPETITIVE. So that set Ernie's marching orders. And that's why we are where we are.

    Parker is definitely gone after this year. See his contract. Portis will want too much $$$... read $16M? This trade was to free up money to extend Sato and Bryant. So, ultimately, the Wiz lose Otto, Parker, and Portis.... all three.

    You damn well know what I mean. Showing up FAT to camp is a character issues, especially for a guy with bones spurs in his heal. Wall looked like he had just smoked a huge bowl, and spent three days at the Sizzler buffet, when he showed up to the USA camp.

    Now that Otto is gone, Brown is my guy. They're similar players. Brown appears to be more aggressive. And, yes, folks should simmer on the criticism... he's incredibly young.
  12. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    And now Ariza can walk for nothing after the year. Which means we got NOTHING back for Oubre. Which means we wasted, what, the 15th pick?
  13. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    Yes they should have. The Skins and Wiz love sitting on large, splintered fence poles.
  14. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    They need a sweetner to move Keef. Wiz don't value 2nd rounders... and they should.
  15. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    Came back to a blow up of posts. Otto was the casualty, which is just fine. Wall is untradebale. They want to build around Beal, even though he'll probably walk in two years if not demand a trade sooner. They needed cap room to re-sign guys like Sato and Bryant... plus some wiggle to keep a guy like Portis who will ask for too much. So next year will look somewhat like this year... - No Wall - possibly the worst contract in sports at this point - Beal being overused and probably become really frustrated at some point - Aging vets in Green and Ariza, the latter being on the decline All the Wiz did was remove Otto to create cap space to remain a fence-sitter. That's it. That's the plan. This team is royally screwed for the next FIVE years. But I've been saying that since that contract was signed.
