If there was anything that all those lockout pick-up games showed us, it is that John Wall's skills have improved over the course of a season. And now with the overly affection rookie Jan Vesely on his squad, Wall has their big man of the future. But let's put things into perspective, Washington isn't going far because besides Jan, Jimmy and Young, there are still too many holes in their team. But things are starting to look up for the Wizards. —Jose Martinez
