Hello everyone, and welcome to Week 12 of the NBA season. Let’s take a look at the Wizards’ fan confidence at this point as well as a national questions on players whom some would like to see traded.
Wizards results: Fan confidence remains stable
The Wizards entered Wednesday afternoon (the time I wrote this up) with a 13-26 record. And as you might expect, there hasn’t been much change week to week. In general, about 70 to 75 percent of fans were confident in the direction of the team barring a string of bad losses.
This week, we’ve seen Bradley Beal and Thomas Bryant return to the court before Washington’s loss to the Utah Jazz last Sunday. Though some of the core players have returned, we have yet to see how they will gel with the rest of the new additions like Gary Payton II and Johnathan Williams.
Anyway, I’m not sure if the Wizards’ wins are going to change fan confidence much. We shall see as the season goes on!
National Results: NBA fans want to see Kevin Love traded
With the NBA trade deadline quickly approaching, it’s natural for us to “want” players traded. On a national scale, fans wanted to see Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love traded somewhere else in a group of six players, including Wizards forward Davis Bertans, who didn’t make the Top-5!
If you didn’t see Bertans show up in the survey earlier, here’s the proof!

There is certainly a reason why people want to see someone like Love traded. He is a multi-time NBA All-Star and played on Cleveland’s championship team in the 2015-16 season. He is also still averaging 17 points and 10.4 rebounds per game, and could be a solid addition to a playoff contender, whether off the bench or as a starter.
And finally, Love said some comments about the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this week that will certainly fuel the trade rumor circuit.
As for Bertans, I’m happy he stayed under the radar among fans, but team executives are certainly ready to pounce if the Wizards truly have him on the trade block.
