The DC area is known for its sports teams. The city has everything to offer, football, baseball, hockey, soccer, and basketball. In recent years the high light of the town has been the Capitols and Nationals, both making runs into the post season. Starting to make a rise in recent years are the Washington Wizards, gaining more attention and brining bigger names to the city. The Washington Wizards will be the team to watch in 2016.

With recent additions to the team and a new mentality on the court the Wizards have been able to begin to make a name for themselves in the Eastern Conference. Returning star point guard, John Wall, has been taking the team in a new direction under the leadership of head coach, Randy Whitman. They have also added stability in the locker room with the presence of veteran players like Drew Gooden and Alan Anderson. The future is also looking bright with three good rookie draft picks including, Bradley Beal, Otto Potter, and most recently Kelly Oubre.

This season will be as competitive and exciting as DC basketball has seen in years. The Wizards have taken the steps needed and should be expected to be seen deep in the post season. The Wizards will soon be the next great team of DC.
