The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The BEAL & BRODIE ERA


Recommended Posts

Beal displaced Webster who displaced Ariza. We could have found minutes for Porter though. He needs to play.

He's a long way behind Ariza and Webster so he doesn't need to play. This is how good teams operate, if you're ready you play if you aren't you sit. The Wizards aren't a consistently good team yet but they are good at the 3 position and they want to win this season. Porter is going to sit until someone is hurt, traded, we are involved in a blow out, or he is good enough to steal minutes.

I think players like Otto can develop without playing too much early in the season. He's got some serious strength issues and he's not fast enough to compensate for them by simply using his quicks to avoid contact. He might actually be better off playing little in his first year.

Great game from Beal and Webster. Wall probably took a bit too long of a break, but Temple was playing efficiently.

Wall has shown a pattern of coming out of long breaks really cold. Yet you'll see him sitting on the bench for 8 minutes some quarters.

Whatever, if we are in position to win without him, it's best to get him rest where we can.

I don't buy that. Good teams develop their draft picks and in order to do that, they play them. OKC is playing Steven Adams 16 minutes a night and he's as raw as can be. Otto should be playing at least 15 or 16 minutes a game.

He isn't going to develop on the bench. Absolutely no one does. We're not contending for anything this year, there is no reason to let Porter rot on the bench.

It's very important that this FO develops Porter because they aren't getting another high pick to fall into their laps. If they can't find minutes for him, they need to trade Ariza. That's something they've always needed to do anyway. Ariza for a big so we can weather Nene's injuries better.
