The 0-5 Wizards have been the league’s worst team through the season’s first 10 days, and their No. 1 pick, NBA Draft star Jan Vesely is not enjoying riding the bench. Here is perhaps the best quote from a rookie so far this season:
“It’s tough to sit on the bench and see the players, they are playing and they are playing bad. Of course, I want to try to help the team.”
Love the candor, Jan. I also wonder who he’s talking about. Maybe … everyone? Four of five starters are shooting under 39 percent (JaVale McGee, who tries to exclusively dunk the ball, is at 51 percent). The Wizards are one of the worst teams in the NBA in scoring, shooting, rebounding and assists. Yes, these are the losers I picked to make the playoffs.
The winless Wizards are in Orlando tonight. They’re 12-point underdogs. [Post]
