I disagree with your opinion of the Wizards outlook. While John Wall may not be Jordan or Lebron (no one is…) he is in my opinion on the very next level. His skill for generating open threes is best in the league and his speed and length on defense is a building block for the team. Having Wall is a great advantage, because his teammates thrive under his leadership and high IQ play. Look at contracts players like Ariza, Temple, Beal, Nene and more received — he is a major factor in the success of those players. Is John Wall a max contract player in any year? I think yes. If anything, this next season will determine if the Wizards should have walked way from Beal. Many other players could fill Beals shoes (Fournier, Batum, Lin, Afflalo, Jennings).
