In recent days, following a debilitating loss to the Warriors, and an embarrassing loss to the lowly Timberwolves, the Wizards have suddenly become a center of national attention. Dan Steinberg covered some of the most high profile criticism for the DC Sports Bog. Everyone knows the saying: “Any press is good press.” But the reasons for the press have certainly been bad. Bad offense. Bad defense. Bad effort. Bad shooting. Bad shot selection. Bad coaching. Bad. Bad. Bad. Bad. But how much of the criticism is warranted?
