A year that started out so promising... Thought that this year was finally OUR year. The year where we shock the world and prove to the doubters that we can do what we have failed at doing sooo many times before... Make it to the 2nd round of the playoffs, you say?? No, win the Lottery.
Gil was suspended for the forseeable future, Caron was playing poorly, and Jamison was giving up just as much as he was scoring... I was trying to decide between the red, white, and blue Wall throwback and the regular home white. As soon as I decide the throwback was the way to go, what does this team do?? Trade their veteran talent for a couple hungry yougsters and before you know it the team is on a winning streak. Our "chances" (in parethesis because we all know the curse of les bullez is much stronger than any ping pong ball machine) of winning the wall sweepstakes goes from 15-20% to 2%. cei la vie.
I was so caught up looking at the top of the draft, scouting out the Walls and the Turners I was caught completely off guard when I realized we were gonna be alot closer to the 10th pick than the 1st. Ive started to do some research but its been alot more reading and google searching than actual watching. Who do you guys see available between 6-10 that could be a target for the Wizards?? We all know how poor this class is at PG past Wall (though I would love to see them pick up Greivis later on), (as much as I hate to admit it) it looks like Gil is gonna be back next year at SG, and I love the potential of Blatche/McGee at the 4+5. Its taken so long to get them quality minutes the last thing I want to do is add in another young bigman they need to start sharing minutes with.
That leaves us with SF being my primary target. Al Farouq Aminu is a player I have known about for a while now and Devin Ebanks a player I am just now trying to find out more about. I have always loved the idea of a long, super athletic 3 on the team. Getting just a glimpse of what josh howard could do makes me want one that much more. What do you guys think of two?? Who else are you targeting?? Am I wrong in thinking that SF is going to be our #1 (if not only) target??
