http://www.nba.com/2009/news/features/vince_thomas/08/05/wizclips/inde x.html Wiz, Clippers two teams poised for a breakout season By Vincent Thomas, for NBA.com Posted Aug 5 2009 10:28AM The NBA just released the schedule for the upcoming season and you know what game caught my attention? Not the Shaq-Kobe-LeBron hook up on Christmas, but Dec. 14, when the Wizards head to L.A. to play the Clippers. Only Sacramento had a worse record than the 19-win Wiz and Clips last season, but the Kings were supposed to be awful, with that basically D-League roster they trotted out every night. Washington and L.A. were supposed to be better than that. Yeah, both teams faced serious....

We have all the right pieces sonnie, but they are all too young. Most of these kids are barely throwing out their High School Musical posters and starting to grow into men. I believe if we keep all the guys we have right now we will be in the playoffs next year and give teams a run for their money. But for now its going to be fun watching them develop

I doubt we will have another season like that. For one, last year the injuries were prevalent (to Baron, Kaman...etc). Two, we had a lot of off the court incidents (think of Randolph getting a D.U.I). Three, players unhappy with being on the team (think of the whole Baron Davis incident where he allegedly told his former Golden State Warriors team mates that he wanted to go back to Golden State). Three, not starting Eric Gordon right away (think of how many more games we could have won if he had started, and also he was topping all rooks in scoring from the time he was given the starting role).

This year will be better. Gordon will start, so we will have that scoring threat (and think of how much more deadly he will be with one year expereince under his belt). We got rid of Randolph, so we shouldn't have any off court distraction, and we replaced him with the unanimous best player in the draft. We even got some good players to come off the bench (Telfair, Smith). This year will finally be the year that we dig ourselves from out of a hole.
