John Wall, Markieff Morris

Links.

The offensive set in the picture above, where Bradley Beal & John Wall end up in the corner next to each other while Markieff Morris shoots a mid-range jumper, should be called “less”. (Monumental Sports)

The Wizards and Hawks drew the short straw with Game Five starting at 6pm est on Wednesday night. (WaPo)

Albert Burneko unloads about Atlanta’s bigs outplaying Washington’s front line and how much Ian Mahinmi is missed. (Deadspin)

The 64 million dollar center from France could possibly be back at end of the series. (CSN)

All the poor shooting numbers are compiled quite well. (Hoopshabit)

Coverage from the Atlanta media on the Hawks tying up the series. (AJC)

Wall Compares Himself and Bradley Beal to Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars (Slam Online)

WaPo reporter on the Wizards beat, Candace Buckner received backlash from criticizing John Wall’s poor defense online. This is an excellent interview into journalistic practices and her professional relationship with Wall. (Wizards Xtra)

Similar to most NBA teams, the Wizards love PBJ sandies. (ESPN)

We have not focused enough on this website yet about the horrible decision by the Wizards and their TV business partners, CSNWashington, to demote legend Phil Chenier from his analyst gig to a more occasional, specialized role in the studio. The “fresh voice” rationale seems misguided and the fan base has been near universal against this move. Matt Terl solidly presents that Monumental and Comcast powers that be are committing an unforgivable sports sin. (Washington City Paper)

In 2011, I interviewed Phil Chenier about shaving off his mustache and also argued that the Wiz organization should retire his number for all he has done for the franchise. Instead, they are publicly shaming him during a successful season. Sad (TAI)

Social Media.
