Today in #SoWizards: 20 games = infinite sadness

I didn’t expect the Wizards to be horrible this season. But they are off to a fairly horrible start. That might still change at some point. Until then, let’s peer at the misery. The Wizards have now played 20 games. They are 7-13. That doesn’t seem great (it isn’t great), but is it unusually bad? […]

The Washington Wizards are doomed and there’s nothing John Wall can do about it

The Washington Wizards suck and they’re not going to get better. That’s harsh, but, D.C.’s basketball team has been atrocious. The Wizards expected sunnier days after bringing in former Thunder bench boss Scott Brooks, re-signing Bradley Beal to an at-best, questionable max deal and using money allocated for Kevin Durant (who wanted nothing to do with the team) to improve...

The Washington Wizards are starting to look better

The Washington Wizards have so far, under-achieved this season. With the injury bug biting them early on, as it always seems to do, they have struggled to catch a groove with a new coach and completely new bench. Their current record stands at 6-12 which is good (or bad) enough for the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. Though they haven’t strung together wins like they are...

Bradley Beal chokes Evan Fournier and leaves handprint on throat, but refs rule double technical

Now I understand why John Wall doesn’t like Bradley Beal. During a little ruckus in Friday’s game between the Wizards and the Magic, Beal grabbed Orlando guard Evan Fournier by the throat. And if you think the headline is overblown, think again. Beal grabbed Fournier hard enough to leave a clear mark on his neck. Bradley Beal puts his hand around Evan Fournier's neck, gets...
