Wiz Insider: Will the Wizards and Cavaliers rekindle their rivalry?

When LeBron James’s open letter announcing his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers was published in early July, Wizards center Marcin Gortat shrugged it off. “My reaction was “This guy again,’” Gortat said Monday at Wizards media day. “Whatever it takes. I was just trying to find a funny photo to make sure I can post it on Instagram. Like a guy trying to find a Cleveland jersey in a dumpster. Stuff like that. I don’t care. Wherever he’s going to be you got to beat this guy at some point. So it’s not like I’m hating on him or loving this guy. I just don’t care. I look at...

Andre Miller should take more jumpers

Andre Miller should take more jumpers

The Professor has shown that he can take care of the ball and make the right passes, but as he ages, he should be more willing to do something he hasn't done much in his career. This is our tenth Summer Checklist piece where we break down an area of weakness each player on the roster can improve. Our previous Summer Checklist pieces: Bradley Beal John Wall Marcin Gortat Nene Otto Porter Paul Pierce Kris Humphries Glen Rice, Jr. Martell Webster. Andre Miller is at the twilight of his long NBA career. However, he has remained an effective ball handler, passer, and even a sometimes-solid...

Morning tip: Marcin Gortat shares prediction for this season

The Wizards won 44 games last season, which was their most in nine years, but based on their offseason moves, they should be able to easily exceed that number.

Wizards need midrange magic from Drew Gooden in postseason

Wizards need midrange magic from Drew Gooden in postseason

Drew Gooden was a force in the midrange for the Wizards during their run to the playoffs. Can he keep it for a full year (including the playoffs) this time around? This is our ninth Summer Checklist piece where we break down an area of weakness each player on the roster can improve. Previously: Bradley Beal | John Wall | Marcin Gortat | Nene | Otto Porter | Paul Pierce | Kris Humphries | Glen Rice Jr. | Martell Webster Drew Gooden arrived in D.C. last February with almost no expectations. The team took a flyer on him with a 10-day contract and he turned into a nice addition to the...

DC Sports Bog: Wizards’ Marcin Gortat has a mohawk now

Small break at work…. pic.twitter.com/TBJC1ZVrkb For a long time I figured Paul Pierce was easily the Wizards’s most important offseason acquisition, but now I’m not so sure. Marcin Gortat’s mohawk offers some pretty steep competition. Read full article >>

Kris Humphries must protect the basket on the second unit

Kris Humphries has been lumped into the big man archetype of being unable to protect the rim while being just so-so offensively. Will he be able to expand his abilities in Washington and anchor the second unit? This is our seventh Summer Checklist piece where we break down an area of weakness each player on the roster can improve. Previously: Bradley Beal | John Wall | Marcin Gortat | Nene | Otto Porter | Paul Pierce. The Wizards entered last season with a big man rotation of Trevor Booker, Jan Vesely, Kevin Seraphin and Al Harrington. Two of those players are washed out of the league...

Will Paul Pierce adapt to Washington's corner-centric offense?

The corners have never been a significant source of offense for Paul Pierce. Will that change playing alongside John Wall this season, or will he buck the trend of elite corner three-point shooters in Washington? This is our fifth Summer Checklist piece where we break down an area of weakness each player on the roster can improve. Previously: Bradley Beal | John Wall | Marcin Gortat | Nene | Otto Porter. By far the most interesting subplot heading into the season for Washington is their outlook on offense as Paul Pierce and Otto Porter take over on the wings. The Wizards just lost their...

Otto Porter's aggression can't have an on/off switch

Otto Porter's aggression can't have an on/off switch

The Wizards' second-year forward is being counted on for big minutes this year. To make the most of them, he has to be ready to attack at all times. This is our fifth Summer Checklist piece where we break down an area of weakness each player on the roster can improve. Previously: Bradley Beal | John Wall | Marcin Gortat | Nene. Everything that could have gone wrong for Otto Porter last year went wrong. From a lackluster summer league performance shortened by a hamstring injury to missing training camp and the beginning of the regular season with a right hip flexor injury, the Georgetown...

Is it possible for Marcin Gortat's encore to be even better?

The Wizards are surely hoping Marcin Gortat duplicates the year he had last year. Is there a world, though, where he could be even better? This is our third Summer Checklist piece where we break down an area of weakness each player on the roster can improve. Previously: Bradley Beal | John Wall. Marcin Gortat was tremendous last season to the point where it's scary to imagine a world with him injured. Nobody -- not John Wall, not Nene, not Trevor Ariza, not Bradley Beal -- had a higher adjusted plus minus on the Wizards (+5.3 on, -6.6 off) last season. Without him, the Wizards don't make...
