This season has revealed two possible paths ahead for the Wizards. Over the past month, with Russell Westbrook piling up triple-doubles, Washington has looked capable of competing with anyone outside the East's top three. Before that, however, the Wizards were languishing outside the conference's top 10, with Westbrook's inefficiency an issue. As he ages, we fear more of Washington's first half, which would in turn lead to renewed questions about Bradley Beal's future in the District. The Wizards also suffer from a bottom-five management score with coach Scott Brooks in the final season of his contract.

Does this feel kind of low to y'all? I get what he's saying (how RW's game will age is a valid concern), but Beal's maintained that he's committed to DC and it's possible if not probable that they'll find an upgrade to Brooks if/when they move on from him. Plus you figure Rui will keep improving and Deni showed some flashes, especially right before he got hurt.

Obviously anything can change, but it seems the future might be at least a little brighter than being the 6th-worst team in the league.

People have been using how they think Russ' game will "age" against him for 13 seasons. He's still outrunning rookies and outrebounding bigs. He's 32. If he squeezes out another couple seasons at this level, he will have pushed himself further than most.
