Wizards Insider Archive: Training camp concerns 2010-11

Training camp concerns Part VII: Will the Wizards be any good?

Will I be the fifth No. 1 pick in the past 25 years to lead my team to the playoffs? Who knows? (Reuters Pictures) Fortunately for the Wizards, they won't enter this season with the unnecessary pressures that come from impulsive championship talk, or even playoff talk. Having hit...

Training camp concerns Part VI: Can Flip Saunders bring it all together?

Rock bottom, down there, was last year. (AP Photo) Flip Saunders's first season with the Wizards was summed up in one quote in late December after a horrific defensive performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder. "Don't ever think it can't get any worse," Saunders said, "because it can." Saunders...

Training camp concerns Part V: Is John Wall ready to lead?

I'll take you there. (Getty Images) Rookies are rarely given the keys to the franchise immediately, but as it relates to John Wall, the Wizards have handed him the keys, a spare pair of duplicates and the hidden location under the welcome mat in case he misplaces the others....

Training camp concerns Part IV: Who is the answer at small forward?

That's a silly question, it's me. (Ned Dishman/NBAE/Getty Images) The Wizards' strength heading into the season is their backcourt, where they have a three-time all-star (Gilbert Arenas), a former starting point guard for Team USA (Kirk Hinrich), and the No. 1 overall pick (John Wall). They have a relatively...

Training camp concerns Part III: Do the Wizards have enough size?

It's my turn now. (AP Photo) JaVale McGee believes that he is finally coming into his own. His body is filling out, as he's added about eight pounds of muscle since last season. His recent diagnosis with asthma and subsequent treatment has given him more endurance. And his confidence...

Training camp concerns Part II: What will Andray Blatche do for an encore?

I'm sorry, Darius. Were you trying to guard me? (Getty Images) It took Andray Blatche five years to become an overnight sensation. Despite being 6-feet-11 with considerable athleticism and a unique skill set, Blatche was little more than a tease in his first few seasons in Washington. But the...
