I was going to link to this but decided it needs its own post. Do the Wizards really think a 2-15 team deserves four All-Stars? Do the Wizards really think any of these four have played to the level of an All-Star?
I understand marketing, and engaging the fan base. I get that. BUT, I think the majority of fans and media think Nick Young and Andray Blatche need to be cut, dismissed, or bought out from the team. Immediately. Sentiment is split on JaVale McGee, but either way the guy isn’t an All-Star.
That’s right, most fans want those two gone, but the Wiz brass wants you to vote for them as All-Stars. I know because
of gumshoe reporting the image above was taken from the front page of the Wizards’ website.
John Wall is the only cornerstone this team has. He has been playing well of late. But with point guards like Deron Williams, Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo in the East, Wall isn’t an All-Star. Yet.
If I’m voting for anybody, it’s Jan Vesely. Just so he brings his girlfriend.
