If empty seats are any indication, the Washington Wizards are just as big of a surprise in their own city as they are to the rest of the NBA.
Back in 2012, John Feinstein said the Wizards should trade John Wall for players and a lower pick in the draft and select Kendall Marshall over Bradley Beal. He revisits that moment.
John Wall says the Wizards were “trying to leave a statement” in taking a 2-0 series lead over the Bulls on Tuesday, and his message to skeptical fans: “Show us some support … we’re serious right now.”
John Wall talks as fast as he plays. That makes him entertaining to be around, even when the ball gets thrown out of bounds or when the sentences come out a bit funky.
Bradley Beal scored 27 points and Washington clinched the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 118-102 win over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
