The Wizards Should Swing Forward!


Upon Seeing that Yi Jianlian had been traded to the Wizards and Seeing the players that they recently drafted, I begin to see the team as a team of many forwards.  Perhaps they can use this aspect of the shaping of their roster
to gain a competitive advantage.  Some of the forwards they have acquired need to learn how to swing between
small forward & power forward(Yi Jianlian & Trevor Booker), and Power Forward & Center(Blatche & Seraphin).
Then they can play lineups like Gil, Wall, Mcgee,Blatche, Yi, with Yi at the 3.  This makes the Wizards big and athletic.  I feel Yi's jumper is a weapon in this lineup.  This lineup features a lot of offensive capability.  I think of
The Wizard team that had Chris Webber & Juan Howard at the "Forwards" and think this team could be like that.
And if Yi encounters difficulty defensively at the 3, you can come in with Booker and run teams to death!  Plus
Booker's  an enforcer.  Hopefully Seraphin with his strength can develop into a post threat.  He seems to have the
ability to run as well, being a fine athlete.  Washington should fare better against teams like Atlanta with their two
6'9 forwards, and Orlando with their big frontcourt.  I admit it's not a perfect mix.  But at the 3 and the 4 they may be
able to overwhelm teams with a steady stream of players.  This should not be an end-all type of solution.  It's
more a look at the roster, with one aspect standing out.  If the roster stays this way, the team should capitalize on
that aspect.
