Washington Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld cautioned that the team's trade for veteran center Nene doesn't mean the team is abandoning its plan to build through the draft and develop their young players.
The Wizards are stuck in reverse with the pedal floored, collectively unable to comprehend the words "measured" or "smart."
Fresh off the red-eye from California, the day before the Washington Wizards officially began training camp, center JaVale McGee arrived at Verizon Center on Thursday for a light workout with teammates John Wall and Andray Blatche.
Isaiah Crowell carries the same primary goal as most high school football players into his senior season, just with a heightened sense of responsibility.
"The Wizards were definitely a good organization, but they haven't been in the playoffs since I've been there," McGee told reporters in Denver upon his arrival. "It's definitely a change of venue coming to a playoff team, and I'm really excited about it."
"Apparently, if you get a fast break and throw it off the backboard in the third quarter, and you're 1-11, you're not supposed to do stuff like that," said McGee, still not getting it. "I felt like I was trying to get the team hype and trying to make a good play. I felt like I did that and went on a run from there."
