For the Washington Wizards The Pain Stops there…

The New Jersey Nets were looking forward to the 2010 lottery draft, they have every bit to be enthusiastic with a new owner and a 25% of landing the top pick in the lottery which means the fans and the people of New Jersey will be doing the famous wrist twisting “John Wall dance”. They were preparing to start with a clean slate and that means shopping Devin Harris elsewhere.
As each pingpong balls fell into place the Nets landed only third and the prospected top rookie for 2010, John Wall looks to play and do his dancing in Washington as Irene Pollin’s lucky championship ring from his late husband had done wonders. Hands down John Wall is definitely the only option the Wizards should think of and it was destiny calling that he plays on a Wizards uniform. John has the charisma and most of all he is a natural leader who could guide a losing franchise. Gilbert Arenas gun slinging days are over; the Wizards have a new Sheriff in town. It has been 9 years since the Wizards drafted the biggest bust in NBA draft history drafting a high school player, Kwame Brown ahead of Pau Gasol (3), Joe Johnson (10), Gerald Wallace (25) and Tony Parker (28). Fast forward the Washington Wizards should have learned their lesson well. Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, Brendan Haywood and Deshawn Stevenson have already been traded months ago and after landing the lottery sweepstakes, Arenas is next (if there would be takers to his fat contract).
The franchise needs to clear their name and since they are a rebuilding team might as well start from scratch and out goes the old in comes the new. I don’t know how much pain the city felt when Kwame Brown was basically doing nothing, the pain of frustration when Arenas decide to bring their war of words against Javaris Critenton to another level, the 25-56 record, the underachieving Mike Miller and Randy Foye, The 2009 number 5 pick that they could have use to draft Stephen Curry or Brandon Jennings but instead trade their pick to Minnesota for Miller and Foye. The Wizards needs a new game face, they need someone they can look forward to… The pain stops there.
Wizards here we go… one, two , three… now do the “John Wall dance”.
