Fire Ernie........ That is all
Archive for January 2013
Originally this post was called "John Wall: Delaying The Inevitable". After thinking about it if Ted Leonsis did not fire Ernie Grunfeld after "Gun Gate" or just decide not to extend his contract after the job he has done thus far I don't know what to expect anymore.
No one should doubt the impact of John Wall ever again. The past 5 games back resulted with a 3-2 record (I feel like its 4-2. The game before he came back the team played with a different energy when news got out he would be returning against the Hawks). The team looks like a legit NBA team with Wall on the floor averaging 15.6 points and 7.6 rebounds. I can't forget Bradley Beal looking like a Rookie of the Year candidate as well. These guys are making Ernie Grunfeld look good. Am I about to give him props on these guys? Nope. A 10 year old playing in a NBA 2k13 franchise mode would have done the same thing. Those picks were easy. Its what he does around these two is what hurts.We are bound for another top 10 lottery pick. Do you really want him in the Washington Wizards draft room choosing another Jan Vesely?
I previously wrote that I would only use big decisions he has made that has crippled this franchise. I changed my mind and now nothing is off limits. The list is larger so if I've missed anything I will gladly add to it just let me know. Follow the link at the top or just click here Ernie's Horrifically Bad Decisions
You know, I don’t see it, to be honest,” Van Gundy said. “I’d love to tell you you’re two years away; I really don’t [see it]. That roster doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. I know they’ll be better when John Wall comes back. He’s certainly got talent, but I don’t know that even John Wall is a great player to build your franchise around. I don’t know WHO you’re building around, so it’s tough to even think about what the construction of your team is. That’s just a bad basketball team.Stan Van Gundy: Wizards have no one to build around
It doesn't make a lot of sense to me either.
This page will list the bad decisions that has set back this franchise by Ernie Grunfeld. I try to leave out the smaller things that has hurt this franchise out and maybe make it its own separate page. If I am missing anything feel free to add it in the comments and I will add it. Credit will be given. Link can be found on top of the page or right here... Ernie's Horrifically Bad Decisions
