    I never though I would see the day. How this man kept his job for 15 years is astounding.

    40 f**king years since the Wizards had a 50 win season. Their quest for mediocrity makes the Texans looks like amateurs.

    He traded Otto Porter (3rd overall pick), Oubre Jr (15th pick) for garbage.

    Signed Wall to a $40m a year contract (for the next 4 years) and then signed Dwight Howard for 2 years (player option for 2019-2020).

    He deserved to get fired.

    If they're keeping Brooks they better be tanking. If they don't plan on tanking, they are absolute morons for keeping Brooks.

    They need Hinkie more than anyone ever.

    With Walls dead money on the books even a franchise as dense as Washington can't expect to compete next season.

    If I were a GM I flat out wouldn't take the job if competing right away is the direction. I get that openings are rare but that's a dead end job.

    Beal is playing great since Walls injury. They could get a sexy return for him right now. To go with their own high picks they could load up on youth quick. And have cap space in 2 years.

    The league's IT clown notches another front office casualty!

    Seriously though, Grunfeld firing seven years late. Must've ran out of blackmail material.

    is their owner cheap and does he stick his nose in people's business? if not mauri could probably take over once commander sheppard is removed.

    the east isn't that hard right now and less pressure since it's the wizards

    If Daryl Morey had John Wall contract, I think he can trade him, unlike Ernie, when he comes back.

    They need a smart GM to rebuild and trade for picks.

    i think if the owner isn't cheap and doesn't get involved, moarley would be really enticed. but harden is still in his prime, he'd wanna see that out.
