John Wall Earns All-Defensive Second Team Honors. Here Are 10 Vines That Prove Why.

[Photo by Getty Images] Gary Payton called it a few years ago when he discussed the progression of John Wall as a then-soon-to-be elite defender in the NBA, relating it to his very own as a superstar for the Seattle Sonics. A man once coined "The Glove" for his superior defense, Payton gloated about Wall's development as a defender. GP mentioned that it took about five seasons for him to reach the stature of an elite defender and based on his observations of Wall's defense, he had assumed the same progression for Wall. Yesterday, John Wall earned All-Defensive Second Team honors for the 2014-1 ...

The Graceful Exit, Volume I: Marcin Gortat Reflects On The Season That Was, And the Future That Will Be

The Graceful Exit. Part of a quote by Ellen Goodman that I won't bother with making you read but if you click here and opt to read it for yourself, then you may understand its wisdom and how it pertains to the Washington Wizards. Being it my third time covering these exit interviews, I've noticed a transparent shift in the way players express themselves when reflecting on the season that was and discussing the future that will be. And they do so in the realist fashion. Back in the day, the last words of the season would come by way of some dead man walking like Chris Singleton, explaining some ...

Wizards vs. Hawks, Game 5: The Better Moments

*Sad Andray Blatche behind the back dribble* My co-worker – a guy who’s on the periphery of understanding the NBA – asks me before every game of the Wizards vs. Hawks series, “So what’s your prediction for tonight?” It’s not an earnest question. I always respond with “I don’t make predictions”, but he lobs the question at me each time with the same Cheshire cat grin. Yesterday, though, I admittedly told him I was doubtful. The Hawks shot extremely well in Game 4, and although Paul Pierce nearly forced overtime, Atlanta controlled most of the game. Now, Washington would be back on the road, nea ...

Curtain Closed: Teague Composes Hawks To Instrumental Win Over Wizards

(Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post) “Kill the head, and the body will die.” In three Hawk wins over the Wizards during the regular season, Jeff Teague averaged 21 points, seven assists, and attempted eight free throw attempts per game. Beyond the numbers, he controlled tempo and pace, and orchestrated the offense that was Atlanta’s multi-instrumental symphony. So coming into this Eastern Conference Semifinal Series, containing Jeff Teague was key. And through three playoff games, Teague had been more than contained. He had been thrown off the stage with his conducting baton stuck through his ...

With Paul Pierce, How Can You NOT Be Entertained?

ARE. YOU. NOT. ENTERTAINED!?! IS THIS WHY YOU ARE NOT HERE!? The Gladiator references never get old when using them to describe the existence and glory that is Paul Pierce in a Washington uniform. PAUL PIERCE JUST FLUNG HIS SWORD AT THE JEFF TEAGUE, KENT BAZEMORE, AND KYLE KORVER. pic.twitter.com/bdNW5pFoye— Hoop District (@HoopDistrictDC) May 9, 2015 For that is the exact kind of emanations Pierce has brought back to this city since the days of the Gilly and company, and Saturday night’s edition not only transformed those fond memories into real emotions, but it almost made up for the m ...
