I'm glad you all have started to come around to what I was saying last season about Avdija :ols: 

 

My ass is still chapped we didn't get Haliburton

 

 

 

I'm rehashing my takes on Otto back in his 2nd year. Porter did get a lot better in year 3 but has never turned into an impact NBA player...

 

I see Deni as being very much like the early Otto. If you're a special player, it shows right away. Not every night but we'd see certain plays or certain games where the NBA talent is immediately apparent. Deni's not showing me anything at all that tells me there's a future impact guy. I know he's got 79 more games to improve but on our current roster Wes can't afford to give Avdija the minutes to grow like that... and I'm not sure I'm seeing a player that would grow if he DID get those minutes.

I think it’s a little bit soon to put Deni on the scrap heap, y’all.  Dude has played a half-season and that was under Covid and a coaching transition.

 

Conversely, I’m not looking to give him the max extension because <insert McQueen quote here>.

For this team, I couldn't give less of a **** about his offense if his defense is good.

 

This team could get to 50 wins running four defensive specialists next to Beal.

 

I've missed your hot takes. Was all stressed this morning and needed a good laugh.

If Deni can improve offensively so he averages 10 pts  he becomes a solid rotation piece. The problem is the Wiz still lack a real 3&D type starting caliber SF that can also get to the rim occasionally. No KCP is not that answer.

Personally, I like the uniforms. Not too far off from the Bullets uniforms.

 

 

 

Im over them at this point.  Go to something modern.  I’d prefer even a simpler jersey like the mid 90’s Bullets.

Some defensive lapses early but not a whole quarter like against the nets.  As long as this team defends they’ll be ok.  
 

they’re going to need to play defense consistently too, because the East suddenly has more than eight teams that are good.

****...Gafford walked off court with apparent knee injury.  We jus gave him a contract, man, we are fn cursed, yo : /

Hopefully it’s just a contusion like Jokic got last night.  No lasting damage from those.  
 

We are paper thin at center right now though.  Bryant is still out.

Yep. Jus announced its a quad injury, dodged a bullet there, no pun intended...

They need to knock Schroeder on his ass. I like the individual effort on D by Deni and Kuzma.

 

Anyone else notice his bleach spot has spread to the back of his head now he looks like a bamma peppe le pew?

Bertans at the five is a disaster.  

 

Fixed that for you, hes the new Otto Porter, he has to go.

 

On the flip side, Harrell is slowing starting to replace Rui as my new favorite Wizard.

I agree with you, but…
 

I still say this team has to get their shooters open looks.  Every team in the association does this but us.  We cannot get Kispert or Bertans the ball with an open look at the line more than maybe twice a game.  They need to set off ball screens for their shooters and they aren’t doing it.  It’s more ball movement without screens, which doesn’t work against better defenses.  
 

im not sure how Beal could be worse offensively tonight.  Good grief, just horrible.
