Would you be willing to stand pat just for one more chance at lEbron James and the Cavaliers?


For the past two months I have been in blow up the team, get whatever we can get, pray for John Wall, mode. 

Than, during the first half of last night's game, after wins against the Knicks and Nets, it occurred to me, that maybe, just maybe, making a run of at the playoffs is really what we should be striving for. Of course, the Wizards wound up playing dreadful in the 4th Quarter, so, it kind of knocked my enthusiasm down a peg. But, nevertheless, I have been thinking about it all day. 

What if we offered Mike James, Oberto and Stevenson expirings to New York in exchange for Danilo Galinari and Eddy Curry

And do nothing else. 

Instead of tanking, we make a run at getting the #8 seed in the playoffs. A chance at Lebron. A chance to crush that franchise. Pull the upset of all upsets. 

What would it take? 1) Foye would need to play better, 2) Butler would need to play better, 3) Jamison would need to regain his early-season form, 4) Haywood and Mike Miller would have to continue to play well, and 5) Blatche would need to be agressive. 

The worst case scenario is that we play hard, don't make any trades, and wind up in 9th place. 

Best case scenario is that we make the trade for Curry/Galinari, get the #8 seed, beat the Cavs, then lEbron signs with the Knicks in the offseason thanks to all the cap space we gave them, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are erased from existence. 

I hate to sound all William Wallace, but would you be willing to pass up all attempts to rebuild for just one more chance at lEbron James?
