Brendan's Chat, Condensed
Brendan Haywood didn't say anything earth-shattering in his ESPN chat on Thursday. He didn't make any trade demands or predictions about winning a championship next season. For those of you who don't want to go through the entire thing -- and believe me, it wasn't that long -- I thought I'd pull out the more interesting Wizards related comments. Enjoy:
Shawn from New York asked Brendan what the Wizards biggest needs are this offseason.
BRENDAN: I think our biggest need is a backup power forward and a magic wand that will help everybody stay healthy.
Dolph from Arlington asked Brendan whom he would draft if he had the No. 1 overall pick.
BRENDAN: I think if your a GM for the Wizards, you would have to go with Blake Griffin. He's someone that can get physical and play hard. In the future he is somebody that can lead a team.
Hook from Southern Maryland asked Brendan about the young players on the Wizards and if the experience they got last season was helpful.
BRENDAN: I think the younger players playing on a regular basis will be good for us going into the future. But playing them all of the same time wasn't the best for us at all times because it left them on the court without any leadership. It's tough to play in this league as a youngster without leadership or guidance.
CL from Arlington asked Brendan about JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche.
BRENDAN: Both those guys have the skill but it come down to being in shape and wanting to do it. It's nothing I can do to help them, they have to what to do it on their own.
Justin Behling from Boyceville, WI, asked Brendan what the Wizards could do if healthy.
BRENDAN: If we're healthy then we will be one the top 4-5 teams in the East. It's not a question if we will make the playoffs, it's what seed we are going to be.
Also, Brendan picked the Lakers to win the NBA championship this season.
