I don't understand why you would draft a guard when you know you need help with your frontcourt. The backcourt is not a weakness of your team. You should of drafted Sean Williams with that pick. I know he had off the court problems ,but with that draft pick it's worth taking a risk.Williams is a defensive presence and god knows we need that. Instead we pick a player whose defensive skills are questionable.If you didn't want to pick Willliams , then you should of made that trade to get Zach Randolph. Instead i have to go another year of watching Brendan Haywoood and Etan Thomas as our big men and another quick departure out of the playoffs.

I JUST DON'T GET IT??? WE NEED AN AGGRESSIVE BIG MAN TO SCORE SOME PTS ON AVERAGE AND GO AFTER THE BALL. I LIKE ETAN BUT HE CAN'T HANDLE THE FINESSE BIG MEN AND HE DOESN'T DO WELL WITH BIGS WHO CAN POST UP. BRENDAN'S HEART MUST BE IN HIS PLODDING FEET. THIS DRAFT FOR THE WIZ MAKES NO SENSE. ANY FREE AGENTS OUT THERE? IS THAT WHATS UP?

It's not over yet. Trade time starts soon and we are not sure what EG has up his sleeves. We don't know if Brendan and Etan are going to be here or not. I think the Wiz did well with the picks they had. They got the best possible player at that pick. GO WIZ!! The season hasn't even started yet and you guys are ready to count them out. I am a die hard Wiz fan and want to see the middle taken care of and see them rise up defensively too. Let's wait and see what the trade/free agent market open up.

he is going to average about 12.0 points a game coming of the bench and he is going to be that scoring punch we needed of the bench.Then trade brendan haywood and navarro for someone and then find 1 person from the d-league for example lee humphrey who can flat out shoot the three to replace roger mason jr and we will be good to go.
