And still, this is extremely disheartening. Wall is the reason I am a wizards fan. What a terrible ending.
Really? Are you super young or did he rekindle your passion? I've been a fan/victim since the Jeff and Moses Malone days of being an 8 seed and being escorted to a quick vacation via the Pistons every spring (middle school mid to late eighties). I remember seeing the Tom Hammonds pick live in '89, and watching Kemp go off the board an hour or so later while on a trip in the midwest.
As for Wall, this is kind of pathetic. And Broken Trust? Please. There's never been trust or loyalty ever, players or ownership, and to believe different is to be stupid. It's power. You've got it, or you don't. He had it, and he doesn't anymore. Btw, this is a sneak preview of Beal's potential future. Those who hear an interview and are sold that he'll stick around no matter how much we suck are exceptionally naive. Every contender on earth is going to be trying to pry him off of us going forward, and why on earth would he say no if it's a legit contender? Maybe he's like Kawhi, and does his own thing, and doesn't play the game 95% of players with power do, but that's very rare, it's much more likely he's just biding his time and if something better comes along, he'll leave too. If we ever get that Godfather offer before his contract is up, we should 1000% take it. You do not want to be crying into your hands because you bought some sentiment that he was old school, only to have the rug pulled out as has happened to innumerable teams over the years for decades now.
