Well the team is finally whole(ish) and they’re looking pretty solid so far. I have to say I’m irrationally stoked considering the team is 7-28. That’s probably because this iteration of the Wizards
is by far my favorite since moving here and adopting the team in 2000. As such, I’m hoping we can keep at least some of this core together and start to make something happen. I know some fans of the team have a championship-or-bust mentality, and are already talking about a reboot. Not me. I’d be excited about a team that could be competitive in a playoff series. I mere 46 wins would do it for me, because no Wizards or Bullets team has accomplished that since 1978-1979 (yes, really). You gotta crawl before you walk.
So, my hope is that some of these Wizards can truly become our
Wizards. That they’ll rewrite the identity of this team and become the players that come to mind when people think of the Wizards franchise. To do that, they’ll need to eclipse the parade of transient, mediocre and/or frustrating players we’ve seen over the years. That day can't come soon enough, so I thought it would be fun to start tracking these guys’ progress up the franchise record books.
