    To beat this team you have to stop Wall! Everything they do starts with him

    I think JV has hit the wall. He has had hardly much rest since the end of last season plus the weight he has put on (adjustment). Hope he takes this summer off except for cardio training and tweaks to his game (foot work. positioning).
    Ya hes definitely hit the wall, and I dont think Big Cat is the right guy at all to be there helping JVs development, They are 2 completely different type of Centers. Big Cat however can teach him better positioning and defense hopefully. I agree however he needs a rest, and then search for a good mentor.

    Fun fact: Washington is a league-worst 0-4 when playing for the NBA championship belt.

    Maybe. He had a terrific stretch in late January through early February: From that Dallas game on January 22 through the Pelicans game on Feb 10th, he had 6 double-doubles and an 18 and 9 outing. He played very well in that 11-game stretch. It's only been the last couple of weeks where he has really struggled and, even then, he had 18 and 8 against the Cavs.

    Don't want to turn this into a JV thread but a couple of things stand out to me: in the last 6 games, he has had 4 games with 0 FTAs. His last really bad stretch was 3 games from Jan 17 - 20th where, in 3 games, he went to the line zero times. In that good 11 game stretch I mentioned above, 50 FTAs, so, over 4 per game.

    The other aspect that has been really noticable is the pick and roll defense.

    STill, the rebounding hasn't really fallen off so you can't say that he's not making effort plays. I don't know what the issue is but he's had these stretches before and he's always bounced back with a string of solid games. We'll see how the next week or so goes.

    The fact that i'm confident putting ross on him can do the trick makes me feel so much better about his development

    Since the Gay trade: Team outscores opponents by 4.0 points per 100 possessions with JV on court. They were outscored by 4.1 points per 100 possessions with JV before the trade.

    It is indeed a good thing Rudy isn't here anymore.

    Hoping for a playoff atmosphere tonight, two playoff bound teams ready to battle for positioning! (can't believe I just said that about Toronto and Washington)

    Wow. Many posters giving it to JV. Yes he needs to mature and grow but come on it seems like more and more people are turning on him. I want him to hustle be aggressive and not sulk too but he is a cornerstone of our franchise. Look at the big picture. I believe he needs more confidence and that will come as long as he keeps hustling and getting minutes.

    Downfall of high expectations he set in Summer League/his best games in the NBA. Nobody thinks he's the next AB bust, we just want to see him make use of the flashes he's shown and get to the level he can. It's frustrating seeing games where he deserves to get yanked.

    When I saw him play last year, he looked like an overgrown puppy. Little body control, little understanding of position, angles, movement, and minimal awareness of the ten players on the floor and their constantly moving positions. This year, he is playing more like his age. Next year or the year after, he will play like a man. All of those things will start to come together, along with a higher level of skill in footwork and shooting.
