Keys to the Palace: Tweet Evaluations

New, comments

2-1 record for the week. Not bad. Then again, the Wizards' wins this week came against the Knicks and the Nets and their loss came against the defending champion Lakers.

In a week where the Wizards played opposite ends of the talent spectrum, it's hard to come to a fair grade on most of the players this week. To aid our efforts this week, we're using two new tools. First, we have a new grade for evaluation. Players who fall in the gap between receiving a golden key and a red lock of shame will be given the blue guest pass of indifference:

Additionally, this week we'll be relying on commentary from Twitter for each player. Enjoy!

Odd night in NJ. The Wiz have 41 of 71 pts from the bench. Andray Blatche has 14. He's bounced back from those terrible reverse layups.

Haven't seen that drop-step dunk from Brendan Haywood in some time. Then again, who actually watches DC play?

JaVale McGee, the human loss cigar checks in, looked "thrilled" on his way to scorer's table. Checks in w 30 secs. left, Wiz down 15.

DeShawn Stevenson

I'd like to make a joke about DeShawn Stevenson entering the game, but he does a pretty good job on his own. #wizards #nba

Nick Young

In case you're wondering, Nick Young is inactive tonight. I can't even see him on the bench at the moment.
