I havent posted in a long time, mainly because watching / reading about the wizards these days just puts me in a bad mood. The lack of consistent effort, understanding basic defensive rotations, and selfish offensive possessions drives me nuts. This team needs a kick in the butt, show more dedication to rebounding and defense, and more discipline on offense. The clear leader and future of our team, Mr. Wall, wants hard coaching and is probably harder on himself than anyone else. Wall is trying to be a leader and wants to be a super star. Blatche needs somebody on him constantly and if he will not put in the effort needed to take the next step then we cant win with him. As talented as he is, without consistent effort, hustle, and dedication he will just put up solid numbers on bad teams. McGee still doesnt understand what a how to play defense or play with any dicipline.
Isnt Jerry Sloan the exactly what this team needs? We are extremely young and malleable, we have a leader who wants the hard coaching, and we have guys that need hard coaching. Wall and Blatche on the pick and roll could be deadly, just deadly. I think if nothing else, with Sloan we would know which of our young guys can be a part of a winner and who will not. It will prevent Wall from developing bad habbits, even if we stink, and no matter what we will play a brand of basketball that we can be proud of. I know its a long shot at best, but I would LOVE to have Sloan coach this team.
