Washington's Future Pushing Against Their Own Limitations

The Washington Wizards didn't have enough. That much was obvious at the outset, but to drive the point home, Jason Smith got fourth quarter minutes in a Game 7. (Jae Crowder, in a richly metaphorical drive to the basket, scored on Smith while sending him toppling toward the baseline cameras.)

Washington Wizards’ John Wall is finally getting recognition

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has been one of the league’s most underrated players for a while now.  For some odd reason he just does not get the love and recognition that many of the NBA’s other top point guards receive.  When I watch TV I see advertisements featuring Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, and Steph Curry but nothing about Wall.  Facing elimination with his...
