The Washington Wizards have expectations for the first time in a long time.
The Wizards who have been laughing-stocks of the NBA for years, finally have a nucleus in place that can at least talk about the playoffs.
With a nucleus of Bradley Beal, Nene, Martell Webster, Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza, and rookie Otto Porter, The Wizard finally have reason to be optimistic.
Washington though, will only go as John Wall takes, and most importantly leads them. Wall has started asserting himself as a leader, and according to CSNWashington.com, Wall is organizing a minicamp for Wizards players.
“Working out with the coaches and stuff,” Wall said about his schedule since re-joining teammates for training sessions.” Getting everybody organized, to have like a mini-camp before we start training camp.”
Wall expects the entire roster together following Labor Day. He also anticipates training with former NBA All-Star point guard Gary Payton at some point before the start of camp on September 28.
The Wizards’ are Wall’s, and he must take that next step as a player for the franchise to meet those expectations.
