With LeBron in Cleveland, The Wizards Are Now The Team To Beat in the East



Most true thing ever said. Wizards are now the team to beat in the East. The Heat are done. The Pacers can’t get their thumbs out of their asses and are losing Lance Stephenson. The Nets are old and lost their coach. So now it’s between the Bulls and the Wizards. And the Wizards donnybrooked the Bulls in the playoffs. Yes, it was without Rose. But who knows how he’ll be coming off his 10th knee surgery. If they get Melo, it’s a whole different story. But right now, the Wizards…yes…your Washington Wizards are the team to beat in the East. Top 5 point guard in the league in John Wall and a top 5 shooter in Bradley Beal. Two dominate bigs in Gortat and Nene. If Ariza resigns, they have the best starting 5 in the East.

As for Cleveland, well, they won’t be bad either. LeBron and Kyrie are lethal. They’ll compete with the Wizards for sure. But for now, it’s Washington’s time to shine.
