If worst comes to worst for them when they come to draft both Woods & Jeffries with both be gone. They will get crucified if that happens, I mean they lose two of the guys that it seems they really want. If that happens will they draft the best point guard left, to fill their needs. if so, the point guard taken will be way too high, in my opinion. They need to go to pick 7 or 8. Trade a Jahidi white and the #11 to the Clippers for #8 or something like that. I mean White could relieve Kandi at LA and also he does a good job against Shaq, with his strength and passion for rebounds. I feel they will do something, as if they miss out on Jeffries, or Woods, they lose a player that will help immediately!!

I would love to do that trade, #11 & jahidi (manos de piedra) white for the #8 pick, but unfortunately for us, the clipps probably are fielding better offers from other teams for that elusive 8th pick.
Sweeten the deal maybe? How about throwing in C.Whit as well.
Do you think that's too much to move up 3 spots, considering that
the players we need (sf) might be gone by then?:confused:

White

Look Jahidi White is a ready made player. Last year the Wizards received a lot of calls aboout trading him. He can relieve kandi, without the Clippers losing anything. I mean he is worth the difference between #8 & # 12, in my opinion. But as you said, the Clippers would be receiving better deals from other teams. But as i said white is a monster and has brute strength and the wizards in their own right are losing alot in dealing him anyway.

point well taken.........I do love the idea of jahidi white coming off the bench for some quality back minutes behind haywood. He would be a big loss considering the lack of big men (guys that like to bang ) around the league. With that said, I have a new proposal:
move kwame(but officer, didn't mean do go 120 mph) brown to the 3 spot, I think his game is more geared for the perimeter, and at the 11th pick

Strengths: Amazing run jump athlete with great work ethic. A workout junkie, bench presses 400 pounds. Might have one of the highest verticals in the NBA someday. Very good shotblocker. Offensive game doesn't always look pretty especially his post moves but the result is usually positive.

Weaknesses: Appears to still be learning the game. Doesn't always look like he knows what he's doing. Fundamentals can improve.

NBA Comparison: Ben Wallace

Strengths: Nasty! Unbelievable physical specimen with intense desire and aggressiveness. Shotblocker/rebounder extraordinaire Takes the ball to the basket with authority and tries to dunk EVERYTHING. Like a man amongst boys on the HS ALL-Star Camp level, against the cream of the prep crop, to the point where it becomes laughable. "Oh i'm sorry, we're you trying to defend me?" Strength of character, has persevered through tough times living with AAU coaches and friends while his mother was incarcerated.

Weaknesses: Offensive game is still very raw. Because he is able to overpower everyone he faces, developing any perimeter game has been pointless. His handle and jumpshot must improve. Developing better moves around the basket.

Notes: A freakish athlete with unbelievable strength.One of the most athletic big men in years. Unlike the big men of '01, there is no questioning his desire, a very fierce competitor. Outplayed the top big men of 2001 at the Nike Camp last year. Did not play HS basketball as a Junior due to eligibility reasons stemming from his season at Mount Zion Academy. Has lived the past year with his AAU coach and has persevered through tough times. Could have been a lottery pick as an 18 year old junior if the NBA didn't have a rule that a player can only be drafted after their class graduates.

In amare, kwame brown will have someone his age to grow up with and learn all the basics things in life, you know, like how to take your clothes to the dry cleaner, not crying at practice when the coach yells at you,avoiding speeding tickets, cleaning uour room......the basics. Myonly fear is that they might get caught up in the D.C. nightlife (remember C webb?) but that's another story.

Am really not sure about Kwame Brown. I do not know if he is a three or a four. However he just came out of high school and Curry, Chandler, etc did not do much better than him. I can see him as a poor mans Garnett in a few years time. if I was the Wizards the power forward that i would take is Melvin Ely, that is if Woods, Jeffries, etc is gone. This guy is a great solid player. he is not as athletic as the others but he can rebound with a passion and aslo is a solid shotblocker. However the Wizards are going to take a small forward regardless. Look they are stocked at the centre and P/Forward at the moment with White, Haywood, Jones, laettner, Brown, , etc they do not have a small forward apart from Jordan obviously, who can do all the little things, like defend, score, handle the ball, etc. That is what they need. However that is aslo what the Heat need who draft one spot ahead of the wizards!!!

GAWD THAT SUCKS...my worst fear is that the player we covet will go spot ahead of us.
Mr. Pat Riley if you are reading this post, I beseech you not to draft Qyntel Woods, Jeffries is a far superior defender and much more coachable and anything else good you want to here about him.
Q. Woods, how sweet would that be. We never have had a do it all player like that at the 3 for some time, actually I can't recall if we ever did.
As far as the Fresno State dude, he's good, but a little to conservative for the the 11th pick, espescially with all of the other
players out there (with much more potential: that's what the drafts about anyWAY)
I'd get him if we could acquire a lower round draft pick ( while retaining ours)
I'm sorry if I keep using references as "we" and "ours"
being that you're probably not even a Wiz fan.;)
