As we play out the final month of the 2011-'12 NBA season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead. A look at post season chances, long term potential and upgrades possible in this summer's NBA draft. We continue in the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference with the Washington Wizards.
The 2011 NBA Draft was nothing short of the consensus sentiment of the experts – lackluster and filled with project picks, particularly from Europe up front. The one positive that came out of this draft was the lackluster names led to more teams picking defensively-focused players over erratic shooters with inflated offensive numbers.Overall, the draft was filled with a lot of young players in need of serious physical or mental development. Although the draft lacked anyone of the same caliber as LeBron James, Chris Paul, or Blake Griffin, it was certainly not without a good deal of players that could make an immediate impact.
