I am looking forward to the Big Guard battle between Bradley Beal and Jordan Crawford. In the end, Bradley Beal is going to be just too good and too much for Crawford. Opening night Bradley Beal's name will be called as a starter.
You cannot say that about the Starting Power Forward position. I would prefer that Nene and Okafor take all 48 minutes at the Center position. Just tell the 2 big fellas to take care of the position for the next 82 games and leave them alone.
That leaves the 2 players entering their 3rd season, Trevor Booker and Kevin Seraphin with an opportunity to make their mark in the NBA. It is also a chance for the 2nd year, 6th pick, athletic freak in Jan Vesely to take the reigns and prove his worth. I AM EXCITED about this battle. This is going to make following training camp and pre-season an enjoyable time.
It is going to be a battle. I expect blood and sweat. I expect no prisoners taken. I want the best of these 3 to grab the bull by the horns and EARN the Starting Power Forward position.
I am begging Ernie and Ted and Randy to not just give Okafor the starting Power Forward position because of his career. I think that would be so detrimental to the development of Vesely, Booker and Seraphin.
I hope the Wizards do the right thing.
