Houston Rockets 2017-18 Season Preview

On paper, Houston adding Chris Paul to pair with James Harden is a plus for their championship chances. But this is the same paper that also told us that Harden and Dwight Howard would work too, so… While Harden lead the NBA is assist last year, he did also fall finish in the top five in usage rate. Harden thrives... Read More

What did we Learn? 10 thoughts from the NBA’s Opening Night

The NBA season is back in action and can be difficult to keep up with. The waiting, suffering and tests of patience are finally over with. There is no more dealing with the grueling, slow, yet, knee-jerk pace of the NFL season. No more dealing with narratives week to week about which quarterback throws the most accurate passes or discussions... Read More

With Bradley Beal out, the Wizards face early test of depth

The Washington Wizards coaching staff and players boasted about how much better the team would be this season because of how much deeper they became in free agency. They were right to do so. The additions of two big men in Kris Humphries and Dejaun Blair strengthened the backcourt. Both are upgrades from Kevin Seraphin, who played big minutes early... Read More

Paul Pierce’s Addition Brings new Hall of Fame perspective to Washington Wizards

“Last one! Let’s go! Last question!” A voice yelled in the background as a media scrum surrounded Washington Wizards’ All-Star point guard John Wall. That voice was the voice of Paul Pierce, a 17-year veteran and surefire hall of famer, calling on his teammate to hurry up so they can get back to business. After media day was through, it...

Kevin Seraphin gets Qualifying Offer From Wizards

The Washington Wizards have formally extended a qualifying offer to Kevin Seraphin. Seraphin, drafted in 2010 along with John Wall, averaged 11 minutes per game last season and only played in 53 games while remaining relatively healthy. It’s interesting that the Wizards have extended a qualifying offer to Seraphin rather than Trevor Booker–who produced in a larger role and occasionally... Read More

Standing Pat? The Washington Wizards’ Draft and other notes

The reaction on Wizards twitter wasn’t great when the Washington Wizards ended up trading their lone draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for cash considerations. The cash fills out the bottom line of the roster. It essentially represents money that doesn’t count for or against the cap, but it gives the Wizards the freedom to spend a bit extra... Read More

So Where do the Wizards Go From Here?

And just like that, it’s over. No more electrifying John Wall darting down the court after snatching a rebound in midair. No more Bradley Beal stopping on a dime in transition and delivering a corner three point make. No more Nene in the high post. No more Gortat rolling in the lane and laying the ball up from 10 feet... Read More

Washington Wizards are sent Scrambling after Beatdown by Indiana Pacers

The Wizards are going to need to do some major regrouping after being trounced by the Indiana Pacers last night. There’s no way that they can employ the same strategy that they used throughout the first three games at this point. Things need to be done far differently than they were before if they want a chance to steal homecourt... Read More

Roy Hibbert gets back on track against Washington with pure hustle

In the sports world you hear a lot of cliches. There are a lot of hot takes about “who wants it more” or who has that “it” factor. Very rarely are we left with evidence of these intangibles actually existing. There are some cases where it’s made evident that not enough hard work is being put into the game, though.... Read More

Who would’ve Thunk it

If, before the season, you would’ve told me that the Washington Wizards would be the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference, I would’ve agreed with you. They were on fire during the second half of last season after John Wall’s return and had an elite defense to back him up. Bradley Beal didn’t get a chance to fully blossom, the... Read More
