Flip Saunders, Wizards. Chance at succeeding: Excellent. Saunders is a gifted offensive coach who is well-known for his extensive, creative playbook. That will fit well with the high-scoring Wizards, assuming they are healthy (Gilbert Arenas especially) and productive. Saunders has a wide array of weapons at his disposal and should be able to push the team’s offense near the top of the league. But one thing Saunders does especially well—and he doesn’t get much credit for it—is formulate defensive schemes that can hide his team’s weaknesses. He has long been on the forefront of employing zones in the NBA, and should be able to come up with something that bolsters what has been a shoddy Wizards defense.The Baseline. Sean Deveney gets it. He might be overstating the defensive thing a bit, but credit should go to him for recognizing that Flip will actually help the team's defense on some level.
