Lets make sure we make a halfhearted run in the standings now so that we can secure the 10th pick and avoid getting an impact player.
You can tank and still end up with the #5 pick. Or you can try to win games, boost vets' trade value, and keep trying to teach whatever players may stick around how to win in this system. Also, as someone who still half-watches the games, I'd rather see them win.
I want this one real bad.
Your Washington Wizards... The only team in the league that loses in the part of the season we're supposed to be winning, and win in the part of the season we're supposed to be losing.
My heart is still rooting for wins, even though the brain is saying tank.
The Monday game against the Celtics will likely be a real rude awakening.
Yeah we can often show our best against the best competition.
But right now I don't think our best is anywhere near good enough.
10 of Boston's 16 losses have been in back-to-back games; three times already they've lost both ends of a back-to-back. When the tail of a back-to-back is on the road, they are 3-3. I smell blood. Hope it's not a Jamison injury.
Everyone saw this coming, they mortgaged their future for a shot or two at the title. It worked, because they won (they were horrible) and now you see them really showing their age. They still (with some luck) have a shot at getting to the finals but I don't see it.
Trade Allen to a team looking for capspace. Heck, I proposed a Jamison/Stevenson for Allen/1st in the trade thread. We wouldn't even need to keep Ray and he could head back to Boston if he/they wanted. Sure, they wouldn't get noticeably younger but they'd certainly get better.
Miller. Sheed+Jamison+Scalabrine could be the most 3-pt chucking reserve frontline of all times. And Jamison doesn't help them matchup against the teams they are vulnerable against, either those with size (like Cleveland or LA if they make the Finals) or those with athletes (like Atlanta).
Allen+Scalabrine+picks for Iguodala and Dalembert? That's the kind of move that allows them to matchup with the other contenders in the East and also sets them up to matchup well with the Lakers should they reach the Finals.
If 76ers went for it, that would be much better for Boston. Boston's roster shows 14, so they could in theory sign Allen back without cutting anyone.
I hate Eddie House, he always comes off the bench and drops three's like isnt even trying. We need to keep him and Pierce in check otherwise it will be no contest
Up 4-0 We’re getting ready to blow these guys out…
That's one thing about the Cs when they foul you they do it hard you are hard pressed to even stay on your feet rather less get the ball off
I really don't like the Celtics. If anyone is at the game – please heckle the hell out of pierce about his wheelchair bullshit in the finals
This might be sacreligious, but I'm having more fun watching Rondo than the Wizards
miller fouled the crap out of tony allen it looked like
Yean, Doc was screaming at the ref
Ohhhhhhhhhh, Jamison broke the Truth.
get your wheelchair paul
That was pretty Wizards rotated well, but Boston kept passing to the open guy – Wiz rotated 5 times… but 6th pass found Wallace for a dunk.
Amazing... They’re making Boston look old and slow.
Fab can get under the skin of Wallace we can get him out of the game quick
Veal Scalabrine annoys me to no end.
Wizards look organized this game... And Boston looks vulnerable… I know they’re not playing well recently – but they just don’t look very good at all
Boston’s lost without Rondo in the game. He’s been on the bench this whole time. In the playoffs, if I’m Doc, I’m playing Rondo the full 48 whenever I can.
I hope jamison and butler play there ass off so we can trade them for good value
Wizards twice as mnay free throws
Wiz becnh outscoring Celtics bench 19-6
Perkins is a dirty player I see why DS hit him on that lay up last game
Boston's being really careless with the ball. Leading to fast-break opportunities. I don’t think there’s all that much the Wizards are doing, it’s a lot of Boston’s own doing.
Wow, the officiating is ATROCIOUS!!!!!!!! It's almost as if the refs have explicit instructions to hose the wiz. Nah, couldn't be. That NEVER happens.
All I want to know is who is this team and where did my lovable loser Wizards go?
You never see the Wiz going to a post-up game in the 4th quarter, like Boston is doing.
Who the hell are we going to post up against Sheed, Garnett and Perkins?
Forget Sheed, Garnett and Perkins, who the hell on this team qualifies as a post up player?
Boykins...he gets posted up all the time by the opposition.
The Refs are steping up in the 4th for the Cs
He had his arm in the area of garnett shooting, you have to move your arm to block the ball, not garnett’s arm It was a veteran move, and antawn got beat, it was a foul it wasn’t a lot of contact, but it was a “superstar call” and a veteran move
We were due for a dry spell and here it is, lets see if the Wiz give this game away as they usually do
This is a Celtics crowd... Huge roar here after Ray Allen's 3
Jamison is trying to operate against KG, and it ain’t working.
Looks like this game is over, better team finished the game out better
This game leaves me with a really irritated feeling to say the least.
The Wiz took 10 more shots than Celtics but Boston shot 54.8% as opposed to 38.9%. Defense matters and that’s why Boston is going to the ECF against Cleveland.
