like what is the wizard's development doing so different?
As I've posted in other threads, I think the issue is actually less with what the Wizards do to develop players and has much more to do with player selection. Player development is far more about the work that the individual player does independently than it is about what the team can do. A coach can show a player how to do things, but the players still has to do it. The only way to develop a skill is practice -- constant repetition with focus on doing it properly each time.
Players that improve -- that add news skills -- rarely are doing it with a coach holding their hand every step of the way. Great ones often go off and work on something truly on their own during an offseason. Others might work with a coach periodically, but the skill itself is built by endless repetition on his own in the gym.
The Wizards have made a fetish of picking guys who MIGHT be good IF they add some skill or set of skills. But, they don't seem to have invested much effort in picking guys who are willing to do the kind of work necessary to add that skill.
