It is because we do not want a consistent good defender down low, and a player with a very High Basketball IQ on the court. We just don't want it. The away game at the Lakers where Trevor and Kevin Seraphin were absolutely spectacular (exaggeration- they played really good) against Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom in that great 4th quarter where we almost pulled it off was just too much for the Coaching Staff to handle. That was way too much success for two rookie big men with the Wizards. It is kinda amazing that our best quarter, in my opinion, in this whole season had 3 Rookie First Round Draft Picks on the court at the same time.battling Kobe, Pau and Lamar. Kevin had 4 blocks, Trevor was all over the court on offense and defense. Trevor also had the speed to run with John Wall.
Guess who was the fastest player in the NBA Draft Combine this past summer? If you said John Wall you were close but WRONG. Trevor Booker recorded the fastest time out of all the draft picks. GOOGLE IT! This draft class by the Wizards will prove to be one of the greatest in Wizards history 10 years from now (my humble opinion).
Why are Trevor and Kevin not playing? That is a very good question. That is one you will have to ask Flip Saunders, Ernie Grunfield and ultimately, our fearless leader Ted Leonsis. Ted has preached bulding through the draft, like the capitals. Well, it's one thing to draft the players and it's another thing to actually play the players.
It really is sad knowing that our Two First Round Draft Pick Rookies have shown that they can play and play well, yet even when the Veterans stink up the place down low that our organization does not even give these two young men a chance to develop and give us a chance to win.
