    The Top 5 Wizards moments this century! Plus, the Donovan Mitchell and Collin Sexton rumors

    The Top 5 Wizards moments this century! Plus, the Donovan Mitchell and Collin Sexton rumors

    Osman Baig (@OBtoojiveforyou) of Bullets Forever joins Matt Modderno for a loaded offseason podcast. We open the show by comparing the situation and fan reaction to Juan Soto's trade with the Wizards re-signing of Bradley Beal. From there we discuss whether there's any realism to trade rumors involving Donovan Mitchell and Collin Sexton, and whether they actually make sense from a fit perspective. The addition of James Posey to the coaching staff was a smart choice and we tell you why. And then the real meat of the show is spent discussing the Top 5 Wizards' moments this century, plus some fan submissions on what should make the list. We closed the show by naming a few of our favorite unsung Wizards players from that same time period. Hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane!

    Learning about NBA Top Shot and the District of Collectors, a Wizards Top Shot Fan Group

    Alec Jenkins (@TopShotWizard) of the District of Collectors (@DCTopShot) joins Matt Modderno to talk about NBA Top Shot and the Wizards Top Shot community. Alec is one of two Wizards Captains for NBA Top Shot so he provided great background on what Top Shot is, how it works, and how people can get involved. He explains the benefits of being a member of the District of Collectors (everything from free "moments" to cool swag to members being sent to the NBA Draft and Summer League) and just how easy it is to join. If you're at all interested in joining a Wizards fan community that specializes in celebrating some of the Wizards' better moments, this might be for you! If you're at all unfamiliar with Top Shot, hopefully this helps get you up to speed!

    Do the Wizards target player archetypes that are actually valuable in today's NBA? Plus, some discussion on Deni Avdija's development

    Do the Wizards target player archetypes that are actually valuable in today's NBA? Plus, some discussion on Deni Avdija's development

    Kevin Broom of the #SoWizards Podcast (@So_Wizards) and Bullets Forever joined Matt Modderno to discuss the types of players the Wizards seem to value. Based on recent draft picks and the Wizards' Summer League additions, it's questionable whether the player archetypes they prioritize are actually all that valuable or effective in today's NBA. Based on that, we discuss how valuable Corey Kispert's skillset actually is and who are his closest statistical comps (aka dopplegangers). You might be surprised to find out whose statistical profile most closely mirrors his so far. We also make the case for why Corey Kispert and Deni Avdija should have played at Summer League. Plus, a discussion on Deni Avdija's development based on comments from NBA trainer Drew Hanlen and the chances of Kevin Durant ending up in DC.

    Is it too soon to hit the panic button on Johnny Davis and the Summer League team?

    Is it too soon to hit the panic button on Johnny Davis and the Summer League team?

    Dominique Nelson (@Domo8186) of the Wizards of Gallery Place podcast joins Matt Modderno to discuss the Wizards' first three Summer League games, the lackluster play of Johnny Davis thus far, and Tommy Sheppard's comments about the importance of filling the second two-way spot. What's wrong with Johnny Davis? What's the plan for Isaiah Todd? Is Devon Dotson too small to help an NBA team? Can Vernon Carey Jr.'s game translate for the Wizards? Does anyone else on this SL roster deserve a spot on the Wizards? They answer all these questions and more! Plus, Domo and Matt talk about their Summer League highlights so far. For a full Wizards' Summer League recap so far, make sure to tune in!

Thank you Matt Moderno

Far and away my favorite basketball pod. Matt offers refreshing, realistic and passionate perspective for a team where it’s designated local media coverage is tainted by team ownership. I found this podcast and listened because of Larry, I continue to listen because of Matt. Thank you for all the work you put in.
