ProBasketballTalk reports that Wiz owner Ted Leonsis expected this, says they're growing. Does growth look this demoralizing? The Washington Wizards expressions are as flat as a line drive jumper. This team is practically unwatchable! Growth isn't really happening.
How is a team growing with the margin of defeat increasing? Before last nights 18 point loss to Orlando, they loss the two previous games by eight. Ted Leonsis needs to define what growth is!
This Wizards team is nice, despite this dreadful start. JaVale McGee is a gem, Blatche is a skillful (though occasionally disruptive) big and of course Wall is a cornerstone. What can get them to look like they're INTO games? What words will inspire them to get after it? What happened to effort? This Wizards team looks to be all about complacency.
Someone needs to be held accountable for this situation. Coaches aren't always at fault, but they usually take the blame. Just throwing it out there! Flip, or the players, or somebody, needs to be held accountable. If true growth and change are desired, something must change quickly.
Flip Saunders is a solid coach, but even the greatest get canned. It's not so much the firing that needs to happen, it's the accountability which isn't present. Maybe Leonsis is right and this is just the process to improvement. My only qualm is why must it be this painful to watch! Hopefully it gets better. Hopefully the Wizards get a win under their belts!
What do you think about the Wizards start to the season? Should Flip Saunders stay or should he go?
