Re: ISH's FIVE QUESTIONS: Washington Wizards Edition
1. In March, John Wall averaged 22.4 points, 7.9 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.9 steals. Can John sustain that level of play? Or has he hit the preverbial "Wall"?
--He's not good enough and/or his first name isn't uncommon enough to call him John. You either need to have a name like Kobe and LeBron or be as good as Michael or Larry to be on a first name basis by the general NBA, imo.
2. "You can do it Otto, you can do it Otto! Help each other out, that'll be out motto. You can do it Otto! You can do it Otto!"Make this shot, I'll give you free gelato.""Get back to my place, where I will get you blotto! "Domo arigato, Mister roboto!"
I needed an excuse to post that Simpsons song, so tell me if you like the Porter pick.
--Long term, I think he was the best prospect in the draft. Maybe behind Noel (who I still think will become Noah-like), but I do like him above the other top wing prospects like Dipo and McLemore. It's difficult to judge a Georgetown non-big prospect because of their system. There's a good quote from an NBA scout back in the 80s or 90s who shared the same sentiment regarding these slow down, very restrained, systems. Wish I could remember it. Actually, it could be recent now that I think about it.
3. YOU BETTER CZECH YOURSELF, BEFORE YOU WRECK YOURSELF: Would you label Jan Vesely, the 6th pick in the 2011 draft, a bust?
--Up to this point, how could he not be labeled a bust? He was a high pick and his shitty team has still been unwilling to give him playing time. You have to really suck if that happens.
4. Al Buckets, Emekafor, Nene, Trevariza: Which veteran will have a great comeback year?
--I have always liked Nene. Other than health, I could never figure out why he wasn't better. I'll continue to ride the Nene bus until he retires.
5. The Washington Wizards will make the playoffs this season.
--I think so. I like them better than Cleveland for next season if Wall keeps up his play and Porter isn't complete garbage.
