Of course they were. Lets not get it confused, Tommy loved Wall and knew he was back... Ted was the pearl clutching owner and told TS to trade him.
If we had Wall instead of Russ and an average coach we are a top 5 seed this year. But alas, we have the chuckster and the idiot dragging us into the bottom of the league. Beal should demand a trade if Brooks isnt fired.

Feel bad for Wall. Harden is such a joke. That has to be frustrating for everyone else on the team that actually cares about winning.

I feel bad for Wall, but at the same time he'll have a chance to be front and center of the Rockets once they move on from this foolishness.

Wall is a genuinely good guy with some questionable judgement at times but I still wish he was with the Wizards.

Interesting to see Shake Milton up there. So it wasn't just our bad defense against him - he's really good - if his 3 point shooting comes back to what it was last season.

My view hasn't changed:
payitforward wrote:I hated this trade when I heard about it. I still hate that we are giving up a R1 pick. We are a bad team trying to rebuild. Giving up a R1 pick ain't the way to do it.

OTOH, on their careers, Westbrook is a much, much better player than John Wall -- it isn't close.

He's 2 years older than John, of course. OTOH, he isn't coming off a major injury the way John is. Call that a wash...?

2 years ago, at the age John is now, Westbrook had a year better than any John Wall has ever had. Way better. He dropped off last year -- almost entirely b/c his defensive rebounding & assist numbers were significantly down. I expect his assists to pop back up to career average.

Several posters here have speculated about "flipping him" to the Knicks or Clippers. Depending on what we took back, obviously, that could turn out pretty well.

In the end, I guess, the only thing I feel sure of is that the Washington Wizards remain a pathetic franchise.

Huh! I think someone here has been saying that pretty regularly for a while now.... Hmmm, I wonder who that was?

I seem to recall me suggesting - when he was still a scrub last season - that if we make a trade with Philly, we should make sure to have them throw in Milton. I remember you were the only one who responded, but tbh - I can't remember what you said.

Assuming the 76ers aren't bluffing with Simmons and they're not going to make him available.

If I am the Rockets, I'll take Harris, but I'll dump Gordon on them and I'll want Maxey, Milton, and Thybulle along with all a cache of draft picks.

I could see the Rockets emerging much like the Nuggets did after they got rid of Melo.

Boogie is shooting 35% this year.....in the same amount of games played as Westbrook.

Its quite funny how people act like Harden hasn't been clearly the best player on the team and the Wall/Cousins combo have been good. Im glad Wall and Boogie are healthy, but outside of scoring at the basket they have both been inefficient and turnover prone...
Expectations I guess...

There was no time that Cousins was "available" that I would have been willing to pay the price to acquire him. He was always overrated.

Hopefully Westbrick fits well and Brooks improves as a coach...


Well... Westbrook has been a good teammate but absolutely horrible on the court and we all know what 99% of people think of Brooks.

Harden is talented but annoying. Now Rockets have Oladipo who's handsome, a good singer and pretty good at basketball too. Hopefully him, Wall, Cousins, Wood and others can now focus on playing some fun basketball and everybody just moves on.

****'s different in DC though... I still can't wait the day Westbrook & Brooks are gone and unfortunately that likely means Beal will be gone too. :( This franchise is so frustrating but at least I don't have to pay for season tickets and stuff like that.
