The Wizards reject Harden trade


Well, don't know how much more I can take of this shitty organization. They've been a complete joke of a franchise for as long as I have lived and when they had a chance to really make this team competitive, they turned it down.

Wizards turned down an essentially Beal/Singleton for Harden trade this summer. Ted Leonsis was too cheap to pony up for Hardens contract. Had they not made that inexcusable Okafor/Ariza trade...

I could go on. You would be looking at a Wall/Harden/Nene/Seraphin core with a shite ton of cap room. And now Love is having difficulty with the FO in Minnesota? Ugh. What could've been. The Wizards also drafted some Euro dud over Jae Crowder. Its one thing to root for a team that sucks, but to root for a sucky team that is cheap as shite and doesn't seem to care about winninh? Geez. F U Ted Leonsis. No wonder AOL failed.

On phone but a quick Google of Harden Wizards will result in the Wash Post article.

re: The Wizards reject Harden trade


Same shitty owner owns them too. Lord knows what offers he has rejected. Caps should have at least one cup by now. Leonsis lucked into Ovechkin and never had McPhee pull the trigger on a legit shutdown Dman. Pronger etc. And what really irks me about the Wizards rejecting the Harden trade is that they told the fanbase after the Okfafor trade that there's basically no guarantee we can get a top tier FA to come here. Soooo you reject a trade involving one? GTFO Leonsis and Ernie.

At least I got the Skins RG3 will probably suffer multiple ACL tears in multiple NFC Championship games. People hate on Snyder alot but at least he tries. And he's learning from his mistakes.

How has Brad Beal looked so far this year?

The Wizards/Bullets are the worst NBA franchise since the merger. Just awful my entire life.

And Leonsis spends to the cap in the NHL. Hard to blame the owner there.

He's played better the past two games. He seems to do it all but I don't think he will ever be a lethal scorer. Could he be a top 7 or so SG? Sure. He's still so young, so its hard to say. But I do love the way he plays the game. He dishes and grabs boards. Jack of all trades is rare for a rookie.

Beal will develop nicely IMO.

I remember when the Sonics drafted Ibaka and I never thought I'd see him in the NBA and that it was a wasted pick.

He's pretty good now.

Does he now? They've had 6.5 mil in cap space since last trade deadline that they failed to use. They constantly choose players like Scott Hannan over the likes of players like Hamhuis. They never went for a game changer. Instead they went for wily old vets who were starting to lag in talent. But, but , they had leadership. I'm sorry Leonsis is a wolf in sheep's clothing. And calling him a wolf is giving him too much credit.

There's alot of rumors flowing around that Chicago is preparing for Love's FA in 2014. Love is supposedly very close with Rose.

Basically, Chicago would amnesty Boozer, and attempt to trade Deng sometime during the 2013/2014 season in the last year of his contract, and basically build the team around Rose, Love, and Noah.

Any trade involving Deng also probably involves Taj Gibson, despite the Bulls giving Gibson the 4 year extension after the season began.

Rip Hamilton is probably going to be traded this season sometime before the ASB.

And Love is pissed off at the TWolves Front Office yet again.

FWIW, I think Harden is way overrated. Nevertheless, he still would've improved the Wizards.

Seraphin is a guy that has had an awakening this year. I liked the original pick for him but was unsure if he would ever progress and adjust to the NBA game. He has definitely done that and become a great player. The Okafor/Ariza trade was a poor one that I guess he thought veteran leadership is what this team needed.

You could even go so far as to if he never makes that trade for Nene and holds onto McGee and later signs Love. Wall/Harden/Love/McGee core with a bench that includes Seraphin and Crawford. Singleton won't ever be more than a good hustle player and Beal won't ever reach Harden levels. No shot at Beal because I think he will become a good player, but Harden is a game changer

Until you see a billboard advertising a youth movement using a picture of a 30 tear old catcher, then no.

but the Wizards really are staggeringly incompetent.

I'd say he's better than "pretty good".

It's early but OKC definitely won the trade this far.

Martin has been ridiculously efficient for OKC thus far. Having him on the court as 3rd scoring option late in the 4th is scary.
