The new uniforms were not enough to change the shortened NBA season for the Washington Wizards in 2012. This was always going to be John Wall's second season, his season to further his development and perhaps add some distance or fluidity to his midrange jump shot. The rest of the roster is hardly void of talent. To begin with, shooting guard Jordan Crawford is a steal from the late first round. He is a pure scorer who has blossomed since the departure of Nick Young. He has dramatically raised both his scoring average and shooting percentage. Wall and Crawford appear to be a solid backcourt for the future.

Nene is a solid option at center. He arrived in the form of a midseason trade. He may not have the athleticism of JaVale McGee, but he is a better scoring option who can be something more than a weak side defender. The Wizards have to deal with Andray Blatche's injury, going with Trevor Booker in his absence. Chris Singleton is the current small forward, but he should expect to be replaced in the offseason (expect Rashard Lewis to be traded or amnestied in the offseason as well).

The Washington Wizards will have a few options thanks to the team's record and the upcoming Top 5 draft pick. Next season Wall, Crawford, Nene and company are going to have a starter level talent I the lineup for them next season.

Washington Wizards History

It may seem so long ago, but the modern day Washington Wizards had its beginnings in Chicago, where they played as the Packers and Zephers from 1961 to 19963 before moving to Baltimore and adopting the name the Bullets. Eleven seasons later, the Bullets arrived in their current city, Washington, D.C. The last change to the name came in 1997, when Abe Pollin changed the name of the NBA franchise to the Wizards following the assassination of his friend Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

As a franchise, the team arguably played its best basketball between the 1963-64 season and the 1979-80 season. The Wizards, as the Bullets, played in four NBA finals, winning one in 1978. It would be post players Elvin Hayes and Wes Unseld that led the 44-38 Bullets to an unlikely NBA Finals appearance and an even more unlikely series win. The next season the basketball team returned to the Finals with a 60-22 record. The rematch with the Sonics went the other way and the Wizards have yet to return.

There have been plenty of promising young prospects to enter the arena in Bullets and Wizards uniforms since, but Chris Webber, Juan Howard, Rod Strickland, and all the other lottery selections would fall short and be used as trade pieces to jumpstart another rebuilding period. TheSeats has the Washington Wizards tickets for the new season as the franchise appears to have finally found its savior in John Wall. Get great seats for cheap ticket prices and enjoy an NBA game at the Verizon Center to see just how far this team can get in the Southeast Division and the Eastern Conference.
