A Few Choice Words and Skid has Wizards Growing Restless in Wednesday's Washington Post sports section both are about what wrong with the Wizards. The former attributes the wiz kids' troubles to a curse and the latter to a lack of on-court chemistry.
Truly there's no one thing that accounts for the Wizards 10-14 season (they won tonight!). We all expected great things after last year's season and winning a playoff series. Then the team teased us by starting this season 5-1. But this season's Wizards aren't last season's. We don't have Hughes, Dixon, and Blake. Post writer Ivan Carter is on to something by focusing of the need for the team to develop some on-court chemistry. And to Kornheiser, some of us just aren't buying the curse theory.
