BTW, all of the guys mentioned thus far are only marginally better than Shelvin Mack. I don't understand why EG found his play to be so egregious that we had to cut him in favor of... Pargo.


I dunno. . .Mack looked soooo bad in Vegas Summer League, I was rooting for an alternative b/u PG after that.

This may be one of the few highpick-busts still out there for the Wizards. I think we need him and bad. Today.

Dunno about his test-taking skills, however....


Payitforward. You are now, officially, my favorite poster.

Too funny.

I'm wondering, though, if maybe we are too locked into an old paradigm.

Do you think there is a way for the Wiz to identify and develop their own highpick busts/future veteran leaders?

Sounds crazy, but hear me out.

We'd have to look for the right combination of future attributes in a young man. He needs to be wholly unaccomplished as a basketball player. He must have some physical attribute that resembles something outstanding in some other player -- good leaping ability, long arms, a unibrow. He must have read Faust.

Let's say, he skates along with unimpressive stats (1.2 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 1.5 to, .3 blks) for a number of years BUT manages to stay out of jail, strip clubs, the Ponderosa Steak House all-you-can-eat buffet line.

He can be the Wizards own homegrown veteran presence. He could mentor the next generation of never going to be's and wouldn't cost the Wiz $40 million of cap space, a second round pick and a 2 for 1 coupon at Chipotle.

We could suck exactly as badly as we do now... but we wouldn't have to waste anyone's time contemplating and dissecting cr@p for cr@p moves like Lewis for Okariza.

Leonsis needs to get to work if he truly wants a culture change. Just keeping the watch going.

If he reads Faust *at the strip club* can he go? At least once in a while? As long as he uses that Chipotle 2fer coupon?

another week gone by and EG and the SAvior are still leaving our future BBIQ cornerstone up to chance.

Honestly i dont know who is worse livingston or pargo. Livingstons lack of ability to apply any pressure on the defense is amazing. The only thing he can do is post up smaller pg's, however, he never generates good looks. His shots are always 14 foot turn arounds. Very andray blatche. This thread is a joke.

you keep him for his bbiq and ability to diagnose defenses. He is a backup point guard if you haven't read the thread already. He compliments john wall's weaknesses, not duplicates john walls strengths, the most important weakness he compliments of john wall is john wall's lack of hi bbiq while actually being on the court. NO point in rehashing points that i have already developed. Livingston is a backup point guard, with off the chart bbiq and needs to the wizards longterm backup point guard because of hi BBIQ, not his defensive ability or ability to dominate of offense. If he was that good, he would be a starter. A career backup with outstanding basketball iq is a very rare commodity in the nba.

Pretty much every team except indiana has a better backup pg than washington. NOH has brian roberts, who's smoking livingston. Who is roberts?? Ive never heard of him before.

Next question, who's the wores 3 point shooter: wall or livingston?

Has Livingston hit more then one outside shot since he has been here. His two bucket tonight came on post up plays under the basket. Both looked easy. Maybe they should try that more.

Before that, he was 0-8 over four games :o

Dude is trash. Like the rest of this team. This team is made up of D League players and players other teams have repeatedly cut. One of the worst rosters of all time.

Once they get Wall back out there, this PG situation will get worked out.

I have no doubt about that. But what about the rest of the team?
Again, our roster is made up of players that other teams cut.
