John Wall didn’t have a single pass in the NBA’s list of the Top 50 assists of the 2016 season

This time of year can be a bit of a dry time for NBA content, so usually the league fills the void by releasing highlight reels of the best moments from the past season to get people excited for the one to come. Recently, they came out with a video showing off the top 50 assists of last season. If you’ve got 10 minutes, check it out because passing is fun: Remarkably, not one of John Wall’s 789 assists from last season was good enough to crack the top 50 here. The easy thing to do here would be to accuse the NBA of bias towards promoting guys like Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook,...

The five most memorable moments of the John Wall Era so far

The John Wall Era started with so much promise as the franchise looked to move on from the decline of Gilbert Arenas’ time as the Wizards franchise player. With Wall as the new face of the franchise, and Ted Leonsis taking over as the new owner, it looked like the tide was turning for the Wizards. Though there have been some bumps in Wall’s first six years, Wizards fans have also gotten to see the team reach highs the franchise hadn’t reached in decades. Here’s a look at the five best moments of the Wall era to date: 5. Wizards sweep the Raptors out of the first round of the 2015...

Ranking the remaining free agent small forward options for the Washington Wizards

Earlier this summer, after the Wizards had made most of their key free agent decisions, John Wall was asked what he thought the Wizards needed to do to fill the last few remaining spots on the roster, and his answer focused on addressing the lack of depth at small forward: I think in the Eastern Conference you need three or four 3 men in order to defend LeBron. I know you’re not going to be able to stop him, but just a lot of different bodies just try to wear him down, and then if you get in foul trouble you have multiple guys that can guard him. That’s what you really need to go...

Top Stories of the Week: Fighting the Summer Doldrums at the start of August

The month of August has finally arrived. That means that we have also hit those “Dog Days of Summer.” With the Olympics going on next week, there isn’t much going on with the Wizards or Mystics.

John Wall and Bradley Beal’s early MVP odds for next season are quite low

The Wizards are coming off a 41-41 season, so you wouldn’t expect John Wall and Bradley Beal to factor heavily into the MVP discussion before we’ve gotten a chance to see if they’ve taken a step forward from last season. That said, the early odds for John Wall and Bradley Beal are ... not great. John Wall currently has 50/1 odds of winning MVP next season, according to Bovada. That puts him at the same odds as Draymond Green and last year’s Rookie of the Year, Karl-Anthony Towns. It puts him behind Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, and Kyrie Irving among...

It would nearly impossible for the Wizards to pull off a DeMarcus Cousins trade this summer

Now that the KD2DC dream is dead and gone, there’s been a lot of chatter about the next way for the Wizards to acquire a superstar to pair with John Wall. The name that seems to keep coming up the most is DeMarcus Cousins. Regardless of how you feel about his antics or some of his shortcomings on the floor, there’s no question he would add to the Wizards’ overall talent and address the team’s need for an efficient scorer. You could also argue that Washington might be one of the best landing spots for Cousins. He would get to reunite with John Wall, his good friend and former...
