It is the end of the season which marks the point where the Bullets Forever community get to weigh in on how well they think each Wizards player did over the course of the the abbreviated 2011-12 season. Each player is rated on the 1-10 scale. Next up: Cartier Martin

Feel good stories have been rare for the Washington Wizards during the past few years, so that Cartier Martin's triumphal return to the team was greeted with such enthusiasm should not surprise fans or critics of the team. Cartier Martin was one of the most liked individuals in the locker room last season, as his proximity next to John Wall had him at many times jokingly fighting his way around reporters to try and get dressed or deflecting attention after Wall had a particularly rough night. Martin was always unfailingly polite and well spoken and all were sad to see him let go last season due to roster constriction.

However, if this story was a simply about a nice guy returning to the team, it wouldn't have much legs. When Martin was brought back to the Wizards along with James Singleton, the improvement in his game was obvious for all to see. We all have fond memories of Martin's winning shot from last season, but during his other stints internationally he developed a tenacity for rebounding, court vision and headiness which had previously been lacking. Martin made the most of his second go around with the Wizards and I hope that the team recognizes his improvement and rewards him accordingly.
