He looks like Raja Bell but plays like Jeremy Lin. Take that for what it's worth, good or bad.

If Wall comes back and they make the 8th seed, I'll be all in rooting for the Wizards.

At 4-22, in order for them to get to 40 wins, they would need to go 36-20. That would be the best basketball I've seen them play in the last 6-7 years, and a rate the Bullets last played at in the 80s.

Sure, make the 8th seed.

Yeah.

Not much point in talking championship, however when you know the owner is aspiring simply to make the playoffs.


Mediocrity and ticket sales may be the owner's motivators. I am sick of thinking of how badly things are messed up for Washington. What I want to see is SOMEHOW the Wizards do like the Redskins. When the Skins were 3-6, nobody saw six straight wins and the possibility of a 7th, with the playoffs the prize.

If I'm going to delude myself why not? It would be a wild fantasy, but it is possible that Nene's outburst can be the rallying cry and the team can go something like 38-18 from the time of his comments. I guess anything is possible.

Garrett comes from a good family. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he finds a niche and sticks in the NBA. Signing Webster and giving him a shot are the only things I've liked in the past 6 months from the FO. Everything else has been stuff I didn't like or care about.

Didn't see tonight's game, but nothing beats a hungry D-League player, there are guys like Temple playing overseas also.
Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.

As of right now? Yes. In 3 years? I certainly hope not.
Most SGs as of right now are better than Beal.

I have a really good feeling about this kid. I think we may have hit pay dirt. And for dirt cheap.

Really like his game. Like his confident. Great length. Good looking kid. Mature enough to play his game and realize his opportunity. He isn't phased. This kid has been around some good organizations. I think he stays and that is going to help a lot once Wall returns.

Better then Beal. Hell yeah he is right now.

And while I am very frustrated with Beals outside shooting, here is what he has that is impressive.

- He is much better at driving on the break then we thought he would be. He is actually good at it.
- That alley op last night showed some serious athleticism.
- He is great at defensive help and good at man on man. He has a nice block last night. Kid will hustle.

If he could find his shoot, he would be really good. But his shoot looks totally broken right now so there may be a ways to go. If it is just confidence, then he can turn it on at any time. If it is more then that, its going to take lots of work.

Kid just looks immature which he is. He is only 19. He keeps talking about how they need to have fun out there. Yeah. Ok. Go win. Winning in fun. What you need to do is perform out there. You need to execute. You need to win. Then it will be fun after the game. But he is young. He shouldn't be starting. He isn't ready.

Garrett Temple is as important a player as anybody in the current rotation. He's beginning to look like a real find with his ability to make life miserable for the other team's top player. One of the better perimeter defenders the Wizards have had in a very long time. I'm hoping he's signed for the remainder of the season. One of the best D-league signings by the Wizards ever.

His defense on Deron Williams last night left me more impressed than I've been from any Wizard this season

Over his last 4 games he is 4-29 from the field. His overall game looks decent but....

If you mean the Chris Wright from G'Town, I'm down with that...

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Bump for his recent stretch of good games with Beal out.

I'd like to see him retained next year as a 5th guard. He's probably not good enough to earn regular minutes, but he's nice to have around as a guy who can fill a hole at PG, SG or SF if there are injuries. You gotta love his attitude. He plays tough D when he is on the court, he executes the system well, and he doesn't complain if he doesn't get minutes.

If only he was a reliable shooter... he shoots just 16% from 3-point range.

I think he wouldn't even be relegated to 5th guard. He would be able to fill in 15-20 mpg at backup guard easily. What's the difference between someone like Dahntay Jones and Garrett Temple other than collegiate pedigree? Furthermore, if Temple is offered a 1 year deal with provisions for hitting 3p% goals, he would be highly incentivized to use the Verizon Center facilities in the off-season to improve his shooting.

Really hope they keep him. I just don't see why they wouldn't. Great fit.

Temple is better than Jones.

I guess it would be okay to bring him back as a 5th guard. Even after his recent spate of good games, he's still just a shade over replacement level.
