Hollinger's Preview: Washington Wizards

13

Requires Insider. The main points: Biggest Strength: Creating Shots Biggest Weakness: Defense Prediction: 41-41, 3rd in SE, 6th in Eastern Conference Quote to justify prediction: "... it's time to pull back for a reality check. This team won 19 games a year ago, and even with the additions it doesn't appear to be any kind of threat to the conference's elite. Washington won in the low 40s the other four years they had the Arenas-Butler-Jamison nucleus together, and this time around Arenas may not score at such a prolific rate." My take: He's right about our offseason moves, our strength and weakness. However, I think he's off on his prediction. He underestimates the power of this deep team under a proven coach like Saunders. I think their defensive woes will come out most during the playoffs, but I still see them getting almost 50 wins, being 4th or 5th in the East.
