After losing Game 7 against the Celtics, the big question is whether or not we should consider the Wizards' season a success?
Wizards analyst Phil Chenier joined the Junkies just a few hours after the Wizards 115-105 loss in Boston, and after having some time to sleep on the question, he has changed his mind on his answer.
We had this question last night after the game, and after answering that we had a successful season, I started thinking about it more and more, Chenier said. I'd have to more change my assessment and say it was a good year for [them], but successful, I wouldn't say it was successful until you make that step forward and get further than you've been in the past.
Chenier highlighted several accomplishments the Wizards have had during his interview with the Sports Junkies. He mentioned John Wall being named Player of the Month in December and Coach Brooks being named Coach of the Month in January as high points of their season. Not to forget having the best record from January into February.
Chenier finished off his interview by talking about the young stars the Wizards have.
I will say this, based on what we've seen all year and even down the stretch with Bradley Beal and John Wall, I think the future is bright with those two. We clearly have young, bona fide stars. Now we just gotta improve some of the pieces, make sure we continue to get better.
Chenier also had high praises for Otto Porter bouncing back after Game 6, but said collectively the Wizards' defense has to get better.
