The Scouting Report
Hopes are high in Washington for another successful season after last year’s trip to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, but preseason misfortunes look to test the Wizards’ depth right out of the gates. Last year’s top two shooting guards, Bradley Beal and Martell Webster, are sidelined with injuries, while other players such as Kris Humphries may see limited action as the season begins. Even so, these short-term matters can be seen as tests rather than setbacks for a team whose depth on the bench is strong enough to overcome a few injuries or complete a human pyramid. The electric John Wall and newly acquired Paul Pierce will lead the team into these early-season contests against a pair of veteran-laden rosters in the Pacers and Mavericks.
Although the Washington Wizards have changed monikers four times since their founding—they’ve previously played under the banner of the Packers, Zephyrs, and Bullets, the latter of which took home the 1978 NBA World Championship—the franchise has conjured slam dunks in Washington for more than three decades. Several former players have been named among the league’s 50 greatest, leaving a mark on the NBA as indelible as the fake beard superglued to Merlin’s face. Today, throngs of up to 22,000 fans gather at the Verizon Center to cheer on the team swathed in their iconic red, white, and blue uniforms.
