Ignoring the positive words Hibbert claimed of his team, the real words of acknowledgment here are that of the Wizards. Hibbert says the Wizards “are a good team now, seriously”, which is a statement I feel a bit uneasy about. Why the Wizards were so bad at the beginning of the season still baffles me a bit. John Wall is a franchise point guard, Nick Young seemed to underachieve yet produce, and Javale Mcgee had his moments. Therefore, when they shipped Mcgee and Young and received Nene, I considered them to be better, yet unspectacular. Listen, I’m not an advocate of the Wizards, and I really don’t follow them quite much. But I’m curious, are the Wizards considerably better now with Nene, or about the same? Is this a team on the rise, or just trying to find it’s identity?
