Left Behind

Gone in Sixty Seconds - The story of every lead the Wizards’ starters have built up this season.

Never on a Tuesday - Editor’s Note: The Wizards have not won a Tuesday this season. Or a Thursday. Or a Saturday. Or a Sunday.

It Could Happen to You - Have you ever seen something you predicted come true? I wrote this back on July 1, when it was first reported the Wizards had interest in Ian Mahinmi. Being right isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.

That said, there are some reasons for concern. He turns 30 in November, so he doesn’t really help the team get much younger at the center position. He also played through a bevy of injuries last season, as Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star detailed.

While it’s encouraging to see that he was able to play well through pain last season, the hard truth is it gets harder to keep doing that as you get older, and that’s exactly what the Wizards would be investing in if they signed him to a deal.

Ian Mahinmi would be great at filling an immediate area of need for the Wizards, and for that alone he’s worth a look. That said, hopefully the Wizards are also exploring some other options at center who could provide some more long-term value.
