  1. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    Wall is a turd. He legitimately may be the least liked player on the team. Maybe Kelly Wall Jr. likes him. Wall has zero leadership qualities. His basketball IQ is questionable at best. Like Oubre, he's athletically gifted but dumb as a stump. He dribbles the air out of the ball at the top of the key far too often, takes low percentage shots far too often, plays questionable defense far too often (his blocks are from behind... don't go there), he cries far too often, picks up techs far too often... I could go on and on. I've said it since last year, his supermax is gonna crush this team next year. His contract is the least tradeable on the team next to Mahimni's. Toss in the Rosebar to stir the drink.

    Two reasons 3pt shooting is down this year: 1) Wall and Oubre are shooting way too many; and 2) Wall, far too often, slows down the offense to a snail's pace. Couple that with a lack of ball movement and you have way too many contested 3s.

    Back to back games with guards beating up on our guards. Here's an accurate take IMO: https://twitter.com/KeithSmithNBA/status/1064555965301907456 Keith Smith‏Verified account @KeithSmithNBA 4h4 hours ago Talking to folks around the league it is very clear that the trade value of Washington's players goes: Bradley Beal Otto Porter Jr John Wall Teams are terrified of Wall's extension. One told me "$47M four years from now could cripple your team." -------- And at this point, I think you dump Wall's contract for limited talent but expiring money.

    That's the problem. There's an article linked at the bottom where a Suns pundit basically said NO THANK YOU.
  5. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    I wrote a Fan Post over at bulltsforever. Here you go. This is really a response to the NeverOtto fanclub. And that's my honest assessment on Wall and the Wizards' primary issues. In general, yes, I'd blow it up. Wall's supermax is a BIG issue... I've been saying that since last year. If they can find a trade partner, they should jump on it. Quite honestly, I'm fine with trading Otto too. There was some rumblings of the Wolves; and I think he'd be a great fit there. But Wall, and his contract, are what is and will hold this team back. https://www.bulletsforever.com/2018/11/1/18052898/otto-isn-t-the-issue-john-wall-is-here-s-why

    Mahimni lost a good amount of weight and looks MUCH more mobile. Also added a three to his repertoire. I'm digging it.

    Wall should pass a lot more than he shoots. I don't mind him shooting... he just needs to cut it down a few per game. You have to have that threat as it creates space for others. His best shot, of course, is a driving layup or dunk. I think he gasses in the fourth. That's understandable... he's using up that motor early on. SF is clogged a bit. Porter is the clear starter. But Oubre wants to play more and it's a contract year. I think he'll end up getting traded and Brown will fill his role eventually. It's early on of course... but I like Brown's potential more than I do Oubre's. Oubre's basketball IQ is low.

    Who's shooting less? Jamming a bunch of a me-first, ball-dominant, shoot-first players on a team doesn't always work. "Porters bad contract" won't be mentioned next year when Wall starts making that $42 million on average the next four years. Mahimni making 3Xs as much as Howard the next two years. How's that for bad? LOL. Excited to see Troy Brown develop. Between Porter, Oubre, and Brown it's clear the Wizards are building a team of versatile guys that can play and defend multiple positions.
  9. I know this is a funny topic. But I still have them at 7-9. We caught GB at a very optimal time... played a full OT the week before... Rodgers hobbled... at home... in the rain (limits passing game a bit). Not to take away from a win (a win is a win) or being 2-1, which is great. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer... years of losing, being incredibly intelligent and analytical, handsome... all of this makes it more difficult for me to get emotionally wrapped up in 2-1.
  10. Redskins bringing in Breshad Perriman

    I'm a big Kirk fan. Shyt, my youngest son still has a Cousins fathead on his burgundy and gold wall... yeah time to redecorate. But I also didn't like him at his eventual asking price. The Skins screwed up when they didn't get him on the cheap. They kept telling him to prove it, he would, then they would tell him to prove it again. He'd clear the hurdles each time. The expectation, from the Skins, was that his market value would stay the same or marginally increase. But Kirk got pissed, wouldn't take a discount, and asked them for market value. The traded him instead, all the while downgrading at QB. Kirk is in a better situation. The Skins, most likely are not. The only way they right the ship is spending their savings competently. Admittedly, I learned to appreciate DJAX when he was gone. The ability to create space is undervalued. You need a QB and a WR that can, and are willing to, go deep. Not sure we have that with Smith. He makes it easy on opposing defenses. I don't see him making us competitive in high scoring games or in games where we're behind and need a comeback. I hope I'm wrong.
  11. WRs, QB, scheme, or all three? Alex Smith is who he is. But, hey, he doesn't turn it over! Our organization is led by a pack of idiots.
  12. Redskins bringing in Breshad Perriman

    I (sarcastically) like that some of our fan base is blaming our WR corps for some of this. We failed to re-sign (multiple times) a competent, growing QB that broke numerous franchise passing records with a dumpster fire of an offense... both talent and the slew of injuries. Instead we bring in Alex Smith, the ultimate dinker and dunker... the guy who went a full season without throwing a TD pass to a receiver. The HC went crazy... said they upgraded... he's a leader... he's poised... he commands the offense... he'll take deep shots. The anti-Kirk fanbase agreed. Even read some Kirk-who comments last week. And now some are blaming our WR corps? We got what we paid for at QB. And Reid loves selling off his dirty laundry to the Skins. Opposing defenses will learn from this game. Stack the box... soft zone... dare Smith to beat them deep. 6-10.

    And here we go. Soto gone. Too Fing late Davey.
  14. Off-Topic: The Washington Nationals Thread

    Good Cop Davey just sitting on his hands as three of his guys disagree with HP ump about the strike zone.
  15. Off-Topic: The Washington Nationals Thread

    They blew it up. But to assert that they got nothing in value in return is absurd.
