Suprises Since Trade Deadline

Since the trade deadline one team has made a serious surprise, Since trading away 2 of their former All-Stars (Caron Butler and Antwan Jamison) the Washington Wizards have won 3 and lost 2. Andray Blatche is averaging 24.8p.p.g in those 5 games, as well as 9.8 rebounds and 2.8assists, Al Thornton is averaging 16p.p.g and 6 rebounds, James Singleton is averaging 8.4 rebounds per contest and scoring 7.4 points, JaVale McGee is has started the last 5 games after starting the season as a bench player has gone to average 9.6 points and 5.4 rebounds, I could go on for another 10 lines but basically what I'm trying to say is that these guys are stepping up, they have not seen their all stars leave and decided to give up, they have continued to fight, they have committed to make this team better by using the youth which is available to run and play with energy, They have beaten teams like Denver the night after it beat the Cavs, they beat the Bulls who were on a 4 game winning streak, last night they lost by 5 to the Memphis Grizzlies a team that has proven scorers in Marc Gasol, Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph and OJ Mayo, a team who earlier this season were in playoff contention in a competitive Western Conference, The Wizards don't want to wait until the Draft to get a starting block to build the franchise around they don't want one of the free agents available this summer, they want the building block to be what they have now a team with young, dependable scorers who have the will power to make this team better each and every game.
