"Let's allow for a moment that every one of the six is a good pick," he explains. "Let's say they were six for six. The mistake Ted Leonsis has made is he changed nothing else.You need to start building those guys. Every week you waste takes twice as long. Every week they're doing things the wrong way they groove bad behavior. If you want to get out of the hole you're in, stop digging. Now it's going to take twice as much energy to right the franchise. I'm not going to pass judgment on any of those players long term until there's a real culture change. [...] "The measuring stick every franchise should use is if we put a different head coach in there -- take your pick of Gregg Popovich, Tom Thibodeau, Doc Rivers -- how would they look? I'm arguing all six would play better. That doesn't mean Flip is a terrible coach. But he has been a bad coach in Washington. Big difference.

David Thorpe, talking about the Wizards' six draft picks in the last two years. Related: a bunch of agents tell Craig Stouffer that it's time for a coaching change. (UPDATE: Apologies, lsc had this first here)

Rashard Lewis denied spat with Sam Cassell. "No argument @ all. Maybe we because we haven’t won somebody is trying to make up stories." ... Flip Saunders said report of a Lewis-Cassell argument is "not true." Lewis added he wasn't on bench because he lacked sports coat #wizards ... Lewis "The only reason I didn’t play was because my knee was sore. Even if I did get into an argument with Sam, I still would have played."

I did not get a very nice birthday gift though from the Washington Wizards. I was up close and watched a very dispirited effort by our team yesterday afternoon; which really surprised me after such a strong effort against the Knicks.

Ted Leonsis is not happy.

According to sources close to the situation, they are: Boston, Detroit, Indiana, New Jersey and Washington. (Portland, Houston and Utah are the others.) The Wizards might rank as the most surprising team on that list, given their longstanding non-interest in Cousins and the number of hard-to-harness youngsters already playing in the nation's capital, but perhaps the Wiz couldn't resist exploring the possibility of reuniting John Wall with his college teammate.

Marc Stein. This is in the links, but breaking it out for further discussion.

After threatening change to #Wizards starting lineup, Flip said prior to shootaround, "more than likely we'll probably go the same way."

Craig Stouffer. I mean, come on. Really?

...this is a young group that is fragile in that it doesn’t have any success to point to and give itself confidence – they must figure out a way to win; amongst themselves and with the coaching staff.

Ted's comment from yesterday, on his blog. Doesn't sound happy here.

The Wizards are well aware of the Kings’ intentions to keep Cousins. According a source with knowledge of the Wizards’ thinking, the actually contacted Sacramento last season and inquired about the availability of Cousins. They were informed that Sacramento has no intention of moving him, though Cousins has displayed immature behavior since arriving with the Kings as the fifth overall pick in 2010 – he was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team after arguing with coaches and also had an altercation with Donte Greene.

Michael Lee. Good on the Wizards for at least asking and doing their due dilligence.

71 games into his pro career, it may already be time to worry about Wall.

from NESN's Ben Watanabe. Here is an outsider's perspective on our team's development and it only adds fuel to the fire about how good John Wall can be on our team.
