Everyone loves the Beal pick now, but I bet in a few yrs, we're all going to be looking back on this draft and saying "Why did we pass on that guy for a role player?"
EG and Leonsis are running this franchise into the ground. Basically, their current strategy is to stock up on role players and try to make a playoff run, enough to get the 8th seed and get bounced out of the 1st round. We've traded for overpaid players and drafted a guy just because he "fits" so we can become marginally better than we were last yr.
And the worst thing about it is that we're banking on one guy becoming a franchise player. Do I think Wall has superstar potential? Yes, but he has shown minimal improvement from yr 1 to yr 2, and is still pretty raw compared to other PGs. You don't draft for need unless you already have an established superstar, which we don't.
Basically, I just don't think Leonsis and EG care about winning a championship. They're trying to make this team "mediocre" and keep the fans satisfied enough to not revolt. Unless you guys think Beal will be a star, we have not shot at winning a championship for the next 10 yrs at least.
