The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA in The Tailgate Posted 5 hours ago 17 minutes ago, stevemcqueen1 said: his relatively opened up era in the NBA isn't going to last for long either. Feels an awful lot like we missed our window. Why do you say that? It seems like the more NBA relies on analytics, the more likely it is that spacing and shooting become central to the game. Barring rule changes, I doubt we see an NBA that allows teams to feature someone like Ben Wallace. This team needs to start drafting well and getting value out of its draft picks. The biggest failure of the Wall/Beal era has been the downward spiral of poor FA signings patched through trading of draft picks. They need to first draft valuable role players and then use FA to patch in the holes or bring in complementary pieces.
