How Ariza's situation is like Hughes' in '05


Nine years ago, the Wizards were outbid for an essential member of a second-round playoff team. It could happen again in 2014, and if so, they can recover like they did then.

Can Wiz really rest Wall and Beal more?


Washington will look to give Otto Porter and Glen Rice Jr more playing time, but at what cost? Can they follow through on their goal of giving John Wall and Bradley Beal more of a blow next season.

The many ripple effects of Webster's injury


Martell Webster's back injury puts a lot of pressure on management this offseason. We take a look at what this means for Trevor Ariza's free agency and Otto Porter's development.

How much would you pay Ariza and Gortat?


There's plenty of pros and cons tied to Marcin Gortat and Trevor Ariza's free agency. What is the absolute most you'd be willing to give them?

Top Ten Plays of 2013-14


In a season filled with plenty of memorable moments, we picked out our ten favorite highlights.

Wiz should be empowered to think big


Ernie Grunfeld may not be the GM many fans would choose, but he's the one the Ted Leonsis is going to war with. That's why he should be empowered to make a big move.

How to convert bandwagoners into fans


The Wizards had revived interest throughout the 2014 NBA Playoffs. How do they capitalize and convert those people into new fans?

Wizards carving out place in D.C. sports history


The 2014 Washington Wizards are four victories away from being the best D.C. professional sports franchise since the 90's. Really.

The agony of fandom and other things


If the end of Wizards-Bulls Game 3 hurt you in your feels, you aren't alone, Wizards fan. But in the end, this what the playoffs are.

Ain't no luck


Game 3 is coming up in the Wizards-Bulls first round match-up and 'Game 5, if necessary', doesn't mean what you thought it could. Luck has nothing to do with it.
