New, comments
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Bullets Forever's 2015-16 Wizards season preview. As we count down the days until their opener on October 28 against the Orlando Magic, we will go over some of the main questions that the Wizards face. If you missed it, here is Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of our preview. In the final part of our preview, we tackle THE MOST BURNING QUESTIONS OF THE SEASON.

Does Jared Dudley Like Pineapple Pizza?

by Akbar Naqvi

Ever since he has been traded to Washington, Wizards fans have mostly been focusing on how Jared Dudley helps the team in a basketball sense.

But, have we ever had a more active Twitter-user on the Wizards? I mean, think about it, even with Marcin Gortat’s situation with adult websites and Paul Pierce’s roasting Drake, we’ve never had a player who fully utilizes twitter quite like Dudley.

Whether it’s discussing hot topic issues, asking followers what restaurants to go to in the city, his opinion on rival football team QBs, or following stupid 19 year old Wizards bloggers writing about Jared Dudley’s Twitter accounts, there has never been a Wizard who has been so interactive on social media with fans. Perhaps we have our first actual Wizard on Wizards Twitter.

I’m just surprised that he hasn’t answered the ritual basketball twitter question about warm fruit on pizza.

How much will we miss the Wizard logo?

by Jon Munshaw

We won't. At all. Or at least I know I won't.

Though I will miss that giant metal Wizard that used to come down from the rafters in Verizon Center and shoot flames out of the ball.

Also, for the record, I've always been a proponent of officially changing the team name to the Monuments.

What coffee would you order from Marcin Gortat at Dunkin Donuts?

by Jake Whitacre

Whichever one I can pronounce the fastest. I don't want to waste the time of the 7-footer behind the counter taking my order.

What will be the most annoying debate this season?

by Jake Whitacre

Kelly Oubre vs. Bobby Portis is already going to a bad place.

Before the draft we knew Bobby Portis was better suited to help a team right away, and Kelly Oubre's best shot would come down the road. After the draft, we knew Oubre would have a very difficult time cracking the Wizards' rotation, even with the injuries that have popped up during the preseason. Meanwhile, Bobby Portis is in a great situation where he could be a difference-maker in Chicago.

Bobby Portis will probably look good this season. Kelly Oubre probably will not look as good. Everything will happen exactly the way we expected it to happen and we'll argue about it anyway for some reason. Why do we do this to ourselves?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how bad will the KD2DC hype get?

by Jake Whitacre

We're already at a 12, so probably 74 by November 10th, when the Thunder face the Wizards at the Verizon Center. It will be terrible. It will be great. Get ready.
