Why The Wizards Should Hire John Thompson As Head Coach.

Ray Charles could look at this Wizards' roster and tell you what's wrong. The bigs are undisciplined and have a terrible professional attitude. The team couldn't spell "defense". And there's a culture of losing so engrained, you can't imagine it going away before John Wall demands a trade

I'm not saying John Thompson II (not JT3, relax Hoya fans) could fix all of these problems, but he sure couldn't do any worse than Flip.

Thompson knows how to develop guards, from Sleepy Floyd to Reggie Williams, to Allen Iverson. Imagine how this experience could benefit John Wall, especially with learning the nuances of defense and controlling the flow of a game.

Thompson has a track record for developing defensive bigs at the college level. Tell me he couldn't do something with JaVale McGee and Kevin Seraphin.

Thompson's Georgetown teams were infamous for their defense. I find it hard to believe he couldn't teach this squad to improve.

Thompson was always known as a player's coach, but he was also a stern disciplinarian who demanded the respect of his players. Either Andray Blatche gets with the program or finds himself playing for the Iowa Energy.

Yes, the man is advanced in age, and no, he isn't a longterm solution. But few people know basketball as well as he does. Once we finally fire Flip, Thompson could be a great interim coach.
