Day after thoughts

Posted on January 14, 2013 by SportzWiz

Well folks tough one last night for the Wiz Summer League Team, they seemed in control midway through the third and then really struggled offensively to close the game. Some positives from last night

  • Dee Brown's jumper: One reason Dee Brown said he went to Europe last year was to work on his "j". Well he buried two pull up jumpers (one from the three point line) in going 3 of 4 from the field.
  • Dom's offensive game: Another player who has talked about working on his jumper was Dominic McGuire. After showing a great attacking move to his left for a lay-up, Dom started filling it up from the outside by knocking in several jumpers on his way to 12 points.
  • Andray Blatche's Aggressiveness: With the Wizards starting off slowly yesterday Andray Blatche put it on himself to get the Wizards going by attacking on offense and scoring 18 points, 10 of which came very early in the game.
  • Javale McGee's Athleticism: We all heard how athletic the big man was but until you see him play you really dont have an idea. However watching him these last two games you can obviously see what he can bring to the table. The missed lay-up off the glass to himself for the Dunk is a play very few 7-footers can make.
  • Vladimir Veeremenko: I knew very little about VV before the summer league started and I have been very happy with what I have seen. He seems to possess a very strong basketball IQ, as he does a good job of moving the basketball, getting position down low and making plays within himself. Yesterday he had a few assists a couple rebounds and stepped into the passing lane to force a steal. On Monday he had a nice block and did a nice job making his mid range jumper and grabbing rebounds. What are some positives you have seen from the first two games?
