  1. The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Looks like he'll be a top five pick. He's got a Rudy Gobert-like body. I don't think teams will fall asleep on this kind of player a second time, given how great Gobert has been since he was drafted. 6'9, but take a look at that arm length and standing reach 😲. Watching the video that Brave posted, he is a little plodding in the half court. Takes a minute to gather himself up and the CoD to guard perimeter players isn't there. He's definitely a C rather than a forward IMO. But he can really run in the open court and his rim runs are ferocious. This is the kid for us. But I think we're going to have to move up three spaces or so in order to get him.
  2. The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA has Miles Bridges mocked to us. I had the chance to watch him a few times and he reminds me of a southpaw Mike Scott. He's a better dribbler though. He's got a mid range game. Two dribble pull ups like step backs and stuff like that. But you don't pass it to him at the top of the key against a set defense and expect a good shot to come from it. He's also more explosive than Mike Scott. Bridges can really throw it down and looks like a dunk contest kind of guy. I see the same core playing style though. Instinctive scorer with a gunner's mentality. Array of inside and outside skills. Doesn't have a good NBA body, but compensates for the lack of height and length by being such a good leaper. I would rather have Robert Williams, but I'd settle for Bridges. I think he'll be a productive bench scorer early in his career. I wish he was a better ball handler and passer and defender though. He will never be an Iguodala type role player. You can find bench gunners, but it's hard to find guys like Iggy.

    This feels like a particularly good class. Good role players abound. Guys who could go #1 in normal years like Bagley and Porter are pushed down by Doncic and Ayton. They in turn push down some of the other blue chip talent into the mid-lottery like Jackson Jr and Bamba and Carter. And those guys push the good role players like Williams and Sexton and Knox and the Bridges kids into the 9-15 range. This is going to be a good crop of players, and I actually think that most of the guys in the lottery are going to pan out. And I think Ayton and Doncic will be transcendent players and there will be at least five All Stars who come out of this lottery.

    Robert Williams is the guy I want from this class but I bet we have to move up to get him.

    That was some good golfing today. Looked like they fixed the cup placement. This was a fun event, I liked this course. Nice change of pace seeing guys have to put thought into their tee shots beyond "hit ball far." I like Tommy Fleetwood, I was pulling for him to steal this one. What a round. If only he'd birdied the 18 too. Impressive achievement by Koepka. Such a different course and style of play from last year.

    God. Why do people think we're trying to rebuild? We need guys who can play now and we're not just going to give away Beal.

    I'm weird. I've really enjoyed watching the tour crash and burn against this terrible course. It's absurd and extreme and it's fun because the stakes are so high on every single tee shot.

    We're at a weird moment in the NBA game where wings are a lot more valuable than bigs, but also a lot more common and available than bigs.

    I wouldn't want to commit a max salary to DeMarcus Cousins coming off the Achilles injury. I think he needs to prove he can get healthy and play at a high level again before anyone commits that kind of money to him.
  10. ***2018-19 NBA Offseason Thread***

    We'll take Kawhi, LeBron, and Paul George if you don't want them.
  11. The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Agreed. I wouldn't give up Porter for him. If he wants to be here, then let him sign a one year prove it deal.

    If they have a chance at LeBron, they have to take it. They don't need to get precious about their own guys. None of them are in LeBron's universe. Getting LeBron guarantees they'll be in the Finals next year, and every year after that they keep him. The alternative is probably watching a super team form up in Laker-land and having them bring home another banner.
  13. The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    DeMarcus Cousins is the forgotten man. I could see us getting him. Not as good as LeBron or Kawhi, but it'd still be a good get.

    So um... the DPVE isn't working. Kyrie Irving and Kawhi Leonard were willing to forgo it to get away from teams they won championships with.

    If Kawhi forces a trade, he'll give up like 60 million dollars.
