Wizards at a glance
The Wiz nucleus (Gilbert Arenas, Larry Hughes, Antawn Jamison) played together in Golden State three years ago -- and went 21-61. Will they fare better in Washington? Much depends on whether Kwame Brown can reach his potential.
The Big Three have enough O to keep the Wizards in the playoff hunt, but only if they learn to focus on the other end of the floor.
