The three names that Washington knows very well, Leonard Hamilton and Jordan. No not Leonard Hamilton the coach that used to coach us for one year in 2000-2001. Hamilton actually lead us to a 19-63 record which is why he was only coaching us for a year, well that and he got a better job coaching a college team (ouch). And what about Rip Hamilton?
And what about Jordan? Well the Wizards and the world does not need an introduction to this guy. We are talking about the greatest player of all time. Eddie JORDAN anyone? He did take the Wizards to three straight playoff appearances so that's not so bad.
Anyways, back to the current Leonard, Hamilton, Jordan combo that were here in Washington not named Michael, Eddie, or any other names that has a bad taste in our mouth in Washington.
The Wizards were blessed by the presence of Kawhi Leonard of San Diego St., Jordan Hamilton of Texas and home town guy Jordan Williams of Maryland.
Kawhi Leonard could be there at #6 when the Wizards pick in the NBA Draft. He showed me that he has the height and even has a little baby jumper that he is developing. He told us media that he was working on his shot so he can improve in that field. He mentioned that his best asset is defense. That right there alone should be the sole reason for the Wizards to pick up Leonard. He plays the small forward position which is in need.
Jordan Williams, the local product out of the University of Maryland, was very talkative and talked about losing weight, as much as 18-19 lbs. Jordan is an interesting prospect who isn't the biggest, 6`9. He's listed at 6`9 actually but he's really like 6`8. The guy plays big but we already have an undersized power forward in Trevor Booker.
The other Jordan, Jordan Hamilton out of Texas, was pretty tall and athletic. He may be an option if the Wizards stay at #6. He's a pure scorer and that may help the Wizards offense but what bout their defense? To think about it, the Wizards have some enticing options at #6.
