Recently, I had two interesting guests on the Pixel-And-Roll podcast show to jam some pro hoops. Chris Thompson is a contributor at Deadspin, VICE Sports and here at TAI, and joined me to discuss Washington’s poor start to the NBA season. Our conversation lasted over two hours, so I broke it up into two segments.

Part 1 includes:
Overall assessment of the Wiz season, rundown of team issues, addressing the specific offensive woes, and investigating the defensive problems.

Part 2 includes:
We assess blame for the Wizards’ struggles, explore solutions, talk John Wall’s sensational play, team injury issues, Bradley Beal’s contract situation, Kevin Durant, and, finally: we forecast the Ghost of Wizards Fiture.

Curtis Harris, a local D.C. basketball historian, curates a fantastic website called Pro Hoops History. In our lengthy talk, we deliberated on the main storylines from the NBA season and went back—way back—into time on the Baltimore/Washington Bullets/Wizards franchise. This podcast was split into two sections as well.

Part 1 includes:
Golden State, Steph Curry’s place in NBA history, the 76ers mess, the Venn Diagram between Kobe and Lakers fans, and, of course: the current state of the Wizards.

Part 2 includes:
Defining the Bullets teams by decade, Earl Monroe, ’78 championship, ’70s rivalry with the Knicks, Gus Johnson, Earl Monroe, Bobby Dandridge, Jeff Ruland, Wes Unseld, Elvin Hayes, Elgin Baylor, Dave Bing, and Adrian Dantley.
