The Washington Wizards look to rebound after a disappointing 26-56 record last season, with the number one overall pick in the NBA draft, John Wall, leading the Beltway basketballers against a heap of hardwood opponents. Wall is joined on the floor by a crew of capable cagers, including three-time NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas and offseason acquisition Kirk Hinrich, the Chicago Bulls' all-time three-point leader, much to the chagrin of Steve Kerr fans everywhere. The Wizards cast a spell on hoopheads from inside the Verizon Center, an electrifying 20,000-seat arena sure to be booming with dazzling dunks, dishes, and gravity-defying fundamentals.
