The generation of social media we are living in today has bridged many connections between fans and the rest of the sports world, granting access to their favorite teams and athletes. The type of access our daddys would have only dreamed of attaining. So this year, WE are proud to offer Wizards fans a segment that will reveal the week’s top three Wizards-related tweets, Facebook statuses, Instagram uploads, perhaps an AIM away message even. Whether it’s posted by a Wizard or about a Wizard, we’ll be sure to find it, and expose it. Saam Bozorgmehr (@DJ_Saam) our weekly tradition with his own findings and posts..

As Wizards fan, the saying "there's always next year" has been embedded in to our brains since day one. Whether we're 0-7 with the likelihood of being 0-8 for the second straight season or 8-0 (which I don't think has ever happened while I have been alive). The truth of the matter is this: With 74 games left in the 2012-2013 season, The Wizards organization and brain trust has successfully found a way to turn over half this roster, draft the #3 overall pick and still find a way to become totally irrelevant in the NBA landscape. Based on the tweets I've read and specifically, this one from Mike Lee, the Wizards beat writer for the Washington Post, I see no real reason for any sort of optimism towards next year. Especially given the fact that Washington faces the very real possibility of not resigning John Wall. Cheers to the re-re-re-re-build of 2013.

If anyone watched the Wizards and Mavs game on Wednesday night, you witnessed the destruction and downfall of Janerro Pargo as an NBA player. Cartier Martin and other reserve players came in off the bench to help the Wizards crawl and fight their way back to cut the Dallas lead, which was at one point more than 20 points, to only three with a distinct and real potential for a win. Cartier was the key player in the Wizards failed comeback. He shot 4/4 from behind the arc and was 5/6 from the field overall in just under 10 minutes of play. Late in the game with the Wizards trailing by 3 and Cartier having hit consecutive 3 pointers, Janerro Pargo looks off a wide open Cartier Martin in the corner and decides to be the hero and chuck up the three. Brick city. Let's keep in mind Mr. Pargo has been shooting 15% from behind the arc up until this point. We could say "he was due", but in reality, that brick was the last memory Wizards fans will have of Janerro. The look of disappointment and disgust on Randy Wittman's face basically summed up the feeling of every Wizards fan who was watching that game. Needless to say, Mr. Pargo is now contributing to the 7.9% unemployment rate.

Allow me to leave you on a positive note...
WE might be 0-7.
WE might even end up being 0-8 after Saturday's night tilt against the Jazz.
WE might not be able to resign our first overall pick from 2 years.
WE face the real possibility of having to rebuild for the 2nd time in 4 season under the same general manager.
WE may be looking at firing our head coach again.
WE seem to be the only team in the NBA that hasn't improved in any aspect of our game.
But at least WE don't have to deal with looking at this guy while we lose games.Thank you Andrew Bynum for the comic relief in another comical, yet depressing season for Wizards Fans.
