Yea maybe in 1999. His purchasing of the Wizards was not for the team but to become the majority owner of the Capitals, Wizards, Mystics, Verizon Center, Patriot Center and creating Monumental Sports & Entertainment to basically be the BOSS. His influence on the Wizards team is NONEXISTENT.

My view of him and the Wizards is that of a bandwagon fan.. waiting patiently, with no influence on the team, then if we magically get good you'll start seeing him get more involved.

BUT YOU DONT HEAR ME THOUGH!

Keep Wall and see if they could add J.R. Smith as soon as China lets him go. Get a decent 3 and keep McGee. Add some rooks to the bench and let them play. The team is young and need to be together to jell and make some noise.

But we all know that most of these dudes will be gone next year.

Yes...that's EXACTLY the type of character we need to add to this current group.

That's not the impression I get. I don't know if he's as hands on basketball wise as Abe was but in the past couple of years he's done a good job at establishing a relationship between ownership and the fan base. He seems to be following this modern owner's model of establishing a presence in the public eye (like Cuban). With the open Q&A he did w/ the fans a couple years ago and other comments he's made since then...it certainly seems like he "cares". Whether all that was for show or not...I don't know, but he certainly hasn't come off as someone who doesn't care that much about the team. He seems intent on re-designing the team's identity the same way he did w/ the Caps and that would only add more $$$ to his pockets. Rome wasn't built in a day and considering the state of the team was in when he purchased it...I'm not sure what people are expecting from him this early on. I'd have like to see him clean house with the Front Office but I can't fault him for at least giving them a shot. They failed...so I'd like to see Grunfeld out next.

Leonsis cares a great deal for the team.... He is at every single home game... As minority owner, he convinced Abe Polin to get Jordan to be GM of the team.... thought it would be a good look for the city...On his blog teds take, he is always commenting on his teams... 

In my opinion, John Wall is a near bust for the Wizards... I feel like he did not work on his game over the summer and his shooting percentage is proof on that... What can improve his game? Maybe getting a better cast around him... Thats why Grunfeld needs to go....  I can't believe we have nothing to show for the 5th pick we had a couple years ago...

Blatche and Mcgee have so much potential...... sad thing is we will never see their upside as a wizard/bullet...

My idea is to get a veteran coach to teach this young group the basics... My preference would be Jerry Sloan (I know he's old)... we just need to find a malone for our wall/stockton... Lets get the pick and roll going...

Our city needs a winner.... tired of living in loserville.... smiley: roll

I don't know if it's just me, but Wall's shooting actually has been looking decent, and better than last season. He's been smart about his 3-point selection too; i.e. don't shoot it. smiley: laugh

The reason I say John Wall is a near bust for the Wizards is because if his production doesn't pick up and the team doesn't get better what makes us think John Wall would want to stay a Wizard?

IMO Wall not being a Wizard in the future = a bust pick.....

With the way the CBA is structured...Wall would be best served to maximize his earnings by re-upping. And even if he didn't for some reason...he'd still be restricted...meaning we could match whatever offers out there. At worst...he'd do a Kevin Love like deal and re-up for 3/4 years with an option to opt out if he doesn't like where the franchise is headed.

It's only year 2 under a new regime...as dismal as things have been...there is no need for Wizards fans to believe the sky is falling yet. History shows that when a team is in rebuilding mode...there is a usually a 3-5 year window until things are turned around. And that's IF it's done correctly.

Anyone who thought Leonsis was going to take over the franchise and have them competitive in year 2 got ahead of themselves.

I expected this season to go the way it has (I'm on record predicting them to be worst team in the league before the year started in the Sports Forum).

Young, dysfunctional team that had 2 weeks to prepare for a season with a locker room full of headcases.

Rome was NOT built in a day.

The biggest question I have is whether Leonsis is going to trust Grunfeld to re-shape the team...because he has DONE nothing to prove that he's worthy of such. We have one bad contract on this team and that's Blatche...and the amount we still owe him is relatively low in comparison to some other dismal contracts out there around the league. Some dumb GM will bite on him and he'll be moved...I hope. Worst case scenario...we amnesty him after this year. And I use the term "worst" loosely because any scenario involving him not being on the team is a plus...but I'd still rather get him off the books completely. Rashard can be bought out after this year.

I'm prepared to deal w/ the ++@%%%@+ for the rest of this season. I'm already looking ahead to June. I need for Anthony Davis or MKG to be in a Wizard uniform.

You made my point. He cares about the brand, not the product. He put all his energy into making the new uniforms and bring back "new traditions" that relate to the old Bullets fans, which in turn made $$ for the Wizards. But the Wizards arent a profitable team and that goes back to the product on the court. Leonsis doesnt have an influence in that area and thats where we need help most.



@EZ Primo Leonsis is not at every home... his owner suite is always empty or used by his friends/family. In the past 7 home games, he only attended the Celtics and Heat games.

BUT YOU DONT HEAR ME THOUGH!

My dad has been a ticket holder since my inception. I might have been at more games at the cap center than you have. My point is...rebuilding a team doesnt take a year or two. Especially if you arent in some top tier market.

Well if that's the case and 100% truth then I don't see where your faithfulness is coming from.

(Just reading) you make it sound like we aint been in this position 26 of the last 30 years.

Given who's in power, and moves (and lack of moves) currently, "Rome wasn't built in a day" theory can't apply to this franchise.

But I guess you really gotta be a Skins or Bullets fan to "get it".

God bless your father. Real talk.

I dont know where to start but it just gets tiresome being a fan of local professional teams.-Wizs, Skins, Nats, Caps. I saw Sportscenter and the Wizards had two out of ten bad plays of the day/week and it was embarassing. Professional Sports in this area is at a all time low. You can not claim to rebuild a team for over a decade, after a while it seems like all excuses. My little girl watched the Superbowl and she said " When are the Redskins gonna start winning? I told her in three years. When I am watching the NBA finals I will have to tell the same white lie about the Wizards.
Just had to vent.

We need to give wall until trade deadline or summer 2013 before we trade him. After that he'll start to lose value blatche, young, mcgee (the holy trinity of potential that gets you fired) needs to be hung from the washington monument. Lewis is gone the day after the season ends. Grunfeld needs to be "fredo'd" and we need to pray we end up with anthony davis' "where the wild things are lookin self" maybe use our top 3 pick and young/blatche/mcgee to trade up if necessry and we need a. Locker room presence of kg or someone who will smack the bejeezus out of wall for goin 1-on-4. Out of the whole roster the only ones who should be kept are wall,singleton, vesely and maybe young or crawford but I think both should probably go

Count me as wizards fan number 12, 13, 14? I dont know.

Definitely disagree in trading wall and Mcgee. I have been disappointed that wall hasnt picked up his perimeter shooting but i just feel it has something to do with the coach. Randy definitely needs to go next year and we need someone like Doc rivers to scream at these dudes. I just feel there is no motivation in most of the team. What i do love about wall is he brings the energy every game and i can see he tries, we cannot lose this kid, he's an all star caliber player and a bright spot in what the franchise could become. Mcgee is also someone that has great potential, he needs to bulk up and start playing to his strengths versus as mentioned above, trying to make 10 foot dunks. He can become a nasty player in the paint if he hones in on what hes best at, blocking shots and rebounding. I believe we have a nice young foundation right now that could make us a playoff team. I truly believe wall, mcgee, young, booker, and vesely can be our future. I think Jan was a good pick and he definitely adds to the defense we have seen in flashes. As soon as we get some more continuity, we can be a defensive monster of a team. Again we need a coach that taps into them and for god sakes teach them some fundamentals, we look like chickens with are heads cut off sometimes. Other than that i agree with the other moves, cutting blatche, firing ernie. Its been another tough season to watch but i gotta say there's been a good amount of times during this season where i enjoy watching the players we have. Go wiz.
