    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    I dunno. I don't see him as the guy to take the Wiz to the next level. On the other hand, I don't think it's going to matter with no change at the GM level.

    ABQ, that sounds a little like BSG. Only a few non-Borg remaining, fighting a guerrilla war.

    I liked that SG-1 was campy and didnt take itself seriously

    I can't imagine ST letting that happen, given how family friendly it has been, historically. I don't think giving it cursing or sex is going to work. ST is different. It's more cerebral. More based on morality. You're going to have to play that up along with the tech factor if you want to get the bulk of trekies to watch.

    Simple solution: Wait until next offseason when he's a free agent. Fire Whitman. Sign Love and a new head coach. One who's a good schemer.

    What could they do that would placate the "old" ST fans, but also gain the attention of "new" fans?

    Thats what we used to think and we ended up with Enterprise and the last two seasons of Voyager.

    It was a huge gamble and Battlestar didn't have nearly the following/history that Star Trek does. What do we base this new series on? Do we want it like TOS and/or TNG? Do we expect it to be more like the movies (more action oriented)? How much exploration vs continuing plots? I agree that the premise of Voyager was the most interesting of all the series. It was poorly written and executed, but the premise was great. The best star trek, IMO, is the last three season of DS9, but even they fell short of what I would have wanted. I don't know what I want so I don't have an answer.

    Sounds more like wishful thinking. Can't see how a new ST would get picked up on a legit network. Does UPN still exist?

    If they're not going to call fouls, the Wiz need to start committing hard fouls. Questionable fouls. Force the refs to call stuff.

    Honestly, if I didn't know better, I would have no idea the Wizards were playing a playoff game.

    Glad they won last night. Would have sucked to end the season on 4 straight losses like that.

    I don't understand why Wall wants to be a jump shooter. Speed and cutting is his game. He needs to get in the paint. The Wiz were quite successful when they put pressure on the paint. Hibbert should be getting in foul trouble all the time.

    It is what it is. Hopefully Wall and Beal learn and improve next season.

    You know what? The Wizards didn't have a great game, Nene got ejected, and it took a hall of fame type effort from Dunleavy. While I'm not happy with a loss, at least it wasn't a blow out. But that third quarter has to be cleaned up.

    Beal, you haven't made that shot all night. Stop it. Go work yourself in to the corner and sink threes. Nice defense.
