This is why I think both hands and millie are actually doclinkin.

I think this is a wonderful theory, particularly since I started it. Did you ever notice how doc has posted less and less over the past couple of years while the other two characters got more airtime?

You know, originally I thought Hands and Millie were separate people but has anyone looked into when Millie started posting versus when Hands started getting warnings about being banned? Maybe Hands created the Millie account around the same time so he could continue posting on this site and start establishing his new persona.

Not sure if this post has been flagged yet, but it is EXTREMELY handsy:

How about just supporting the team, sit back and watch a big part of this rebuild play out?

The time to get really pissed is in like 2 years from now if things don’t work out.

Right now, everything is still on course.

I appreciate for once this team is approaching things with a long term plan. Some see moves like Gortat or Morris as patch jobs. But they weren’t. Gortat has been our center for 3 years now and will be again next year. Morris is signed for multiple years and is a young big strong PF/S4 we needed with Nene’s contract expiring. We have Wall 25, Beal 22, Otto 22, Oubre 20. You have young talented pieces and we have cap.

That is a result of long term planning that we are here. This was not the case during the Pollin regime. So complaining that ownership is totally screwing up ? That really isn’t happening.

Ted plans to deliver on that long term vision. Does it take time? Yes. But now is not the time to revolt.

They fell short this one year. Things happen such as injuries that are out of everyone's control. But its not like that changes all the good stuff still in place.

If you are the type to get overly negative, then I guess this is a good time for you. But this off season is what they planned for. This was a bridge year. We knew that. An exciting summer of free agency is approaching. Lets see what they do with that before having a major owenership melt down.

Agree, this ^ post sounds exactly like Hands. I believe that Hands has some sort of high-functioning personality disorder.

This notion that Hands doesn't know what he's doing is just not true. Hands knows exactly what he's doing.

Yeah, the Wiz have no first or second round draft pick. We have no future because Ted "leadership guru" Leonsis demonstrates his leadership accumen by endorsing Ernie "freaking" Grunfeld.

But we do have to things two feel good about:

1. Urinal cakes at the Verizon Center.
2. This thread. This awesomely crazy thread which will probably keep all of us occupied throughout the entire off-season.

Go Wizards!

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Doc (milllieieeei, handsy) is one shrewd dude for keeping us going for so long.

Could it be that Doc was Wiz Nasty as well?

Perfect straw man for Doc's rapier-like retorts.
