Great bounce-back win giving the Cavs their first L at home. 

 

Wall balled out, and although Bradley struggled, he confidence is coming along.

 

Hopefully this is a foreshadowing of what's to come, as opposed to the exception.

Pathetic performance taking care of the ball and no one helping Wall

Otto Porter should have stayed home if that's all he could produce

We lost to a team that is tanking by letting an all time player commit basketball harakiri this season...
Ahmed and another Spank source agree that Jordan especially had a soft spot for "chubby blond girls." "He got it bad, bad," Ahmed says of Jordan's taste in Lane Bryant models.

Jenks Calls Out D.C. Sports Fans

I've never been disgusted with an NBA crowd like I was with the "fans" at Verizon Center who were cheering for Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers instead of John Wall and the Washington Wizards. So I'm calling out sports fans in Washington, District of Columbia in my latest commentary on CSN Mid-Atlantic.

We live in a transplant city, with people from all over the country, not to mention the world.

 

Those weren't WIZARDS fans cheering KOBE, those were LAKERS fans that bought tickets to the game.

 

Only way we minimize that is for hometown fans to put there money where there mouth is and buy tickets.

 

We have a fickle sports base, and the poor performances by our local teams over the last couple of decades has steadily built an apathetic set of fans.

 

They watch on tv and cheer the team, but they dont support it FINANCIALLY. So the fans stay home or sell their tickets to opposing teams fans. It's the sad reality.

 

At least we're somewhat removed from the days when the Bullets would advertise games in the Post or TV with "a come see (Magic/Bird/Jordan/Hakeem/etc) play for only $20", smh.

I'm at the point where I save for the playoffs. Might catch a game or two during the regular season but any game with any marquee franchise feels like an away game. I remember the Lakers game back in 2012 when the Wiz came back from like 20 down to win it. Swear it was like 70% Lakers fans then. Made the victory exit that much sweeter though laugh.gif

If Wall misses any significant time, this could quickly become a traditional Wizards season thread very soon.  We're already dead last in the Southeast and can't afford to give up much more ground.  

 

At least it's not the worst year to have a lot of cap space and a lottery pick.  

 

 

I still don't understand why they didn't call time out immediately after it became clear that John was too injured to play.  Yes, he could've called time out himself, but you protect your players in that situation.  Don't let them tough it out just to save you a timeout.  The risk isn't worth it.  Instead, no timeout.  Wall goes down clutching his knee as soon as the whistle blows, and the Wizards don't even send a trainer over to examine him.  He has to wait for his teammates to carry him off.  Bad, BAD look from the bench.

Word is Wall's knee is fine, so that's a relief.  I really wasn't ready to start hearing the "tank for Ben" discussion.

Glad to hear that Wall is ok pimp.gif ....team is just off this year , got the 1st round exit type of vibe so far ...lottery pick wouldn't be the worst thing , would be like a back up for if the team misses on KD

This team had a tough stretch last season, too, after the All Star break, so it's possible that we're just getting the struggle out of the way early.  Unfortunately, I think the difference here is that we actually had a favorable early season schedule, just as last year, and it's not going to get any easier.

 

If you look at the standings, Cleveland, Indiana, Chicago, Atlanta, Toronto, and Miami are pretty safe bets to make the playoffs.  Charlotte's playing well right now, despite the MKG injury.  Boston has been KILLING us head to head and is currently in eighth.  

 

We're four wins back on Boston, five back on Charlotte with a LOT of basketball left to play.  We're also behind Detroit and Orlando right now, with the Knicks and Bucks right there.

 

 

It's too early to write the Wizards off, but it'll be an uphill struggle.  I don't think there's a move out there they can make that wouldn't bring back salary, so we'll just have to see who will win the stubbornness battle between the square peg of the roster and the round hole that is imitation small ball.  

 

Not all of the teams ahead of us will continue to win at the same rate, but you can't count on nine separate misfortunes befalling our Eastern Conference rivals.  If the Wizards are to make the playoffs, it'll have to be because they're playing well and not because every other team fell apart.  There's still talent on the roster.  They'll have a puncher's chance at it.  

 

 

I think most of us knew going in that we'd take a step back this season as that was the price fans paid for indulging in another year of KD fantasies, but I don't think anyone expected to miss the playoffs.  If that's what it takes to finally get a real coach in here, so be it.

 

On the plus side, maybe Beal won't command a max salary now...  Nobody wanted to max out Curry when he was struggling with ankle injuries.  (That said, who else wanted to max out Gilbert Arenas fresh off knee surgery?)

post #77 of 309

Blew a 21 point lead and blew a 10 point lead with around a minute left. Very fortunate to come out of it with a win with great games from Wall and Otto.

It's great to finally see this team playing well again.  The effort's been much better of late, especially from Gortat.  There's a tough stretch of games coming up after Brooklyn, so they need to stockpile all the wins they can to keep pace.

 

 

Not to nitpick, as he's leading the league in assists this month, but John Wall should donate $1,000 to charity every time he jumps to pass.  

post #82 of 309
The jump passing thing has been a problem forever, idk why he hasn't corrected it. Any team with half a brain can see it coming (Spurs)

I'm shocked this team has won 3 in a row with how crazily undermanned we are. Garrett Temple is playing out of his mind and Kelly Oubre has been a pleasant surprise. He can play. Now it's time for Nene to get his *** back on the court, I can't remember the last time he played

checking in with my fellow wiz fans. Surprised that Oubre is getting playing time given how Otto was treated his rookie year and he was a top 3 pick. But i guess that is what happens when you have injuries

It sickens me that Kyrie Irving is on pace to be named the starting point guard for the East.  Seriously?  He's played two games and he's averaging 13 and 3.  If a Pepsi campaign is THAT powerful, maybe Wall just needs new representation. 

 

Of course, with Kobe likely to start for the West the whole "merit" component was thrown out the window to begin with.  Still, you'd like to think there'd be some recognition there.  It's been a frustrating season, but there should be no denying Wall's talent at this point.

Truly frustrating. Wall even spoke on it. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nba/2015/12/27/john-wall-kyrie-irving-all-star-votes-joke/77954816/

Kyrie been the golden boy from day 1. He took Wall's All NBA Team last year as well laugh.gif.

Casuals, Scrimages, All Star Games and, Connections and Commercials really have given Kyrie the shine. Wall on Pace to average 20 & 10 and has the Wiz playing well right now when the Wiz are rolling out a starting lineup of

Wall
Temple
Oubre/Porter
Dudley
Gortat

The all NBA snub was sickening tho when Wall had better all around stats, less help and led the team the whole season

Yeah, the All NBA snub is especially irritating because you'd like to think that actual basketball people would know better.  

 

All Star voters would have Nash, Kobe, and Yao Ming out there next year if they could, so that's whatever.  And we all know why Kyrie was selected for Coach K's USA teams.  (Not that Wizards fans should especially want Wall logging heavy minutes during the offseason, but from a respect/experience standpoint I would hope he'd get the recognition he deserves from the superior Popovich staff set to inherit the program after this summer's games.  If there's one thing Team USA squads need more of, it's passing and defense.  If there's one thing they need LESS of, it's chucking and over-dribbling.)

 

Sometimes, players get selected to represent team success.  In other instances, the big name guys make it "just because."  Wall's always been caught in the middle.
