Washington Wizards Team Info
The Washington Wizards are part of the Southeast Division
in the Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association, and every year battle it out with divisional rivals like
the Orlando Magic, Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Bobcats. The Wizards finished last season strong, and are looking
to build on that momentum and make the postseason in the Eastern Conference in 2013-14. The Wizards appear to have a star
player on their hands in point guard John Wall, whom the team recently rewarded with a big contract extension. Wall was selected
by the Wizards as the number one overall pick in the NBA Draft just a few seasons ago with the hope that he could develop
into a franchise player, and it appears that this is occurring before the eyes of Washington hoops fans this season. Wall
has taken his game to the next level, improving on his weaknesses and learning how to use his many strengths to do damage
on the court. Wall has a young backcourt mate in former Florida Gator Bradley Beal, who was selected by Washington with the
third pick in the 2102 NBA Draft. Beal is a lights-out shooter that is a fantastic complement to Wall.
These two young
players should form the foundation of this Washington team for years to come, and their solid play already has the Wizards
contending got a playoff spot in the East. The team is not without its solid veterans, though, as players like Trevor Ariza
and Marcin Gortat serve in guiding the organization's young talent. This team has very well-rounded and looks like they have
a good chance of making the postseason, and perhaps even earning a seed high enough to gain home court advantage in the first
round. Road games will figure into just how high this team can climb in the conference ranks, and the Wizards are sure to
give everything they've got away from home this season in an effort to secure a top seed.

Washington Wizards Trivia
What sweet-shooting guard have some shots compared Washington Wizards
shooting guard Bradley Beal to?
The answer is the great Ray Allen, who is currently playing for the Miami Heat. Being
compared to Allen is the highest of compliments that can be paid to a shooter, and Beal's stroke has earned such praise. The
Wizards see Beal as a potential future All-Star next to point guard John Wall. Beal is already enjoying a fine career despite
being so young.
Washington Wizards History
The Washington Wizards first hit the court in 1961 as the Chicago
Packers. Eventually the team would move to the nation's capital and become the Washington Bullets, and remained so for more
than 20 years. In 1997, wanting to distance themselves from what could be construed as a violent name, the franchise was renamed
The Wizards. The Wizards were lucky enough to have all-time great giard Michael Jordan suit up for the team when he was a
part owner of the organization. The franchise has won four conference titles over the years and earned one NBA Championship.
