Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-02-23

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-02-23
One question that has come up as a result of the Wizards' awful play is how could the team have two legitimate All-Stars on the roster and still manage to be as bad as it is?

Perhaps Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler really just aren't that good.

"I don't think that's the case," said one Eastern Conference scout speaking anonymously. "They are All-Stars; I don't think anyone should question that. I think the real reason they are struggling as badly as they are is because the rest of the team around them really just isn't that good. If you have to start guys like Mike James, Dom McGuire and Darius Songaila on a regular basis, that says more about the overall talent level on the team than it does about those guys."

Butler and Jamison have put up solid numbers again. Jamison is averaging 21.9 points and more than nine rebounds per game, and Butler is averaging 20.4 points and more than six rebounds. But those stats have not translated into victories this season.

"Maybe not," the scout said, "but those guys aren't the reason why."

SAN ANTONIO 98, WASHINGTON 67: All year long, one of the biggest questions surrounding the Wizards was how much do they miss backup guard Roger Mason Jr.?

Mason scored a game-high 27 points Saturday, and the Spurs defense held the Wizards to just 10 points in the fourth quarter to seal an easy victory for the visitors.
