Why expect a drop from the Washington Wizards?
The three-headed monster of John Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr. continues to be trending upward. Each man is moving toward his athletic prime and building chemistry with the other members of this triumvirate whilst seeking to maintain himself as a premier talent at his respective place. Wall is currently there, and the other two are not far behind.
And if you are concerned about the seat, do not worry –just not for the reason you might anticipate.
Last year’s second-stringers were dreadful. They routinely wasted leads and dug inescapable holes for the starters. This season’s bench collection should not be much better, as Tim Frazier, Jodie Meeks and Mike Scott are not precisely marquee additions. And that is almost irrelevant.
The non-starters are bad. We know that much. On the other hand, the starters are still in place, along with the Wizards published an 8.1 internet rating annually when Wall, Beal, Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat were on the floor together. In spite of all the putridity behind them, they dragged their troops to 49 wins.
