Updated on December 21, 2017

The Wizards

Yeah I used the picture for the article on John Wall, deal with it.
Yeah I used the picture for the article on John Wall, deal with it.

Their Best Players

The Wizards will probably have 3 all-stars in John Wall, Bradley Beal, and possibly Otto Porter Jr. with John Wall leading the way for the team. Wall is averaging 19.4 points, 3.7 rebounds, 8.5 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.2 blocks, and 42.2 percent field goal shooting. Wall is the second best point guard in the Eastern conference right now, behind Kyrie Irving, you could make a debate for Wall because of his amazing passing and defensive ability but I do believe his is number two right now. Of course that could change throughout the season, and I'm sure it will.

number two is Bradley Beal, their personal sharpshooter with averages of 23.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.5 blocks, 45.1 percent field goal shooting, and 35.4 three point percentage. Of course he isn't the best three point shooter in the league but he is pretty good, and probably the best in the East at least. With his all-star scoring and amazing shooting he is a valuable player to the Wizards and probably the best shooting guard in the eastern conference right now.

Number three is Otto Porter Jr., with 14.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 50% field goal shooting, of course Otto isn't amazing but in the East he is all-star level. He can provide valuable scoring and rebounding whenever the Wizards need it.

Their Stars

The Wizards started their season off strong with 3 wins but than went loss loss, win, loss loss, win. John Wall was out for 11 games of this season and in that span Bradley Beal had to step up, he did a good job considering no one player can carry a team leading the Wizards to a 5-6 record without John Wall. With John the Wizards went 12-8, his win shares on basketball reference show 1.7 although I think it should be around 3 or 4.

Bradley Beal has had to pickup the torch left by John Wall for some part of the season, and as I said, he did a relatively good job of it. He's been playing some of the best basketball of his career, he is obviously showing the all-star voters why they made a huge mistake last year by not picking him into the all-star game, where they obviously should have. But sadly he is injured but expected to suit up for their game against the Brooklyn Nets. The Wizards have two of the best players in the East right now, but than again it's the East. The Wizards are currently 17-14, their record does not do their team justice at all. Once Wall and Beal begin to click again on the court the Wizards will be a force in the NBA once again.


Their Best Shot

Once again, after starting the season 3-0 the Wizards slowed down and weren't able to get their chemistry ready to go up against their strongest opponents. But they are going up against one of the weakest strength of schedules in the NBA, 19th to be exact. Their team hasn't been able to size up the competition so far, which is a problem for them obviously. If I were the Wizards, I would try to get a top ten pick and see if I could get lucky and draft Marvin Bagley III, Trae Young, or Tra Holder. Yes I am suggesting they tank, until the Warriors Dynasty is over teams like the Timberwolves, the Suns, or even the Pelicans will come out and win immediately. So I'm not suggesting the Wizards try and get their ring immediately after the Warriors are done, they need to wait maybe another year or two and see if they can get some more all-star talent out of the draft. But at that point John Wall will be in his mid 30s and he knows better than to wait all that time just to win a ring for the Washington Wizards, if the Wizards cannot build a team around John Wall they need to trade him for young all-star level talent. Now 99% of Wizards will disagree with me but this is my opinion, the Wizards should trade John to the Sacramento Kings for their first round pick, Buddy Heild, and their 2019 and 2020 first round picks if they can. The Kings, let's be realistic here, are a horrible franchise and won't go anywhere anytime soon. So if the Wizards make this call and trade for their picks and Buddy Heild, who is a 24 year old guard who is averaging above 10 points per game coming off of the bench, or De'Aaron Fox who is also coming off the bench and averaging 9.4 points a game at the age of only 20 years old. All of the teams in this NBA right now, except the Warriors and the Thunder, have the option of rebuilding for the future as their best shot to make it to the finals. Now, Bradley Beal is currently 24 and could possibly still be in prime for when the Wizards are ready for their finals run if they trade John Wall.
