After shutting off the Redskins debacle against the Eagles Monday night, I decided to check out ESPN’s NBA power rankings to see how the Wizards stack up to the rest of the league according to John Hollinger and Marc Stein. The results? Not too pretty.
Hollinger has the Wiz ranked dead last: http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/powerrankings/_/page/2
As does Marc Stein: http://espn.go.com/nba/powerrankings
As a tortured D.C. sports fan, these rankings only add insult to injury. The Redskins are terrible, the Wizards are awful, both the Orioles and Nationals are bottom feeders, and the Capitals will inevitably lose in the first round of the NHL playoffs.
Only a healthy John Wall leading the Wizards to a few wins this week can cheer D.C. fans up. Please, John?
