Why anticipate a decline in the Washington Wizards?
The three-headed monster of John Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr. is still trending upward. Each man is moving toward his athletic prime and building chemistry with the other members of this triumvirate while seeking to maintain himself as a highest talent in his respective place. Wall is already there, and another two are not far behind.
And if you're worried about the bench, don't be--not for the reason you may anticipate.
Last year's second-stringers were atrocious. They routinely wasted leads and dug inescapable holes for the starters. This year's bench collection shouldn't 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 poor. We are aware that much. However, the starters continue to be in place, and the Wizards published an 8.1 net rating last year when Wall,'' Beal, Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat were around the ground together. Even with all the putridity supporting them, they pulled their troops to 49 wins.
So again, why should we expect anything else this year, especially when the team was better in the second half than during the season's opening salvo?
