JaVale McGee or John Wall - more important for Wiz future?

With John Wall still seriously slumping and at time regressing, while McGee has shown signs of a potentially becoming a very dominant big, who is more important as a franchise player to the Wiz?

for this team to ever be

for this team to ever be successful both john wall, and mcgee need to grow up, and mature. then they need to draft either sulinger or barnes, who i believe both would fit in with the 2 guys. and both of those players are calm, and mature, with mature games which is what the wizards need.

...

Both hahah, i think they need to slide Harrison Barnes right in at the 3 for next year. young only signed one year and Book/Vessly is the future 4's. with Barnes maturity he will bring some focus to the wiz that they are lacking

Wall

Crawford

Barnes

Book/Vess

Mcgee

that starrting 5 looks pretty good

Are you serious? Wall,

Are you serious? Wall, despite his flaws is a potentially elite PG. EVERY year there is someone who can rival McGee's combination of length, athleticism and 'potential'. Not too recently people were calling this place BismackBiyomboDraft.net. Wall easily.

McGee

If your team is counting on McGee you might as well give up. John Wall has a future but do not stain him with McGee.

Every year theres an athletic

Every year theres an athletic 7'1 C/PF with a 7'6 wingspan and a 9'7 standing reach? McGee's length and coordination are absurd. And after tonight's game he should be averaging a double-double to go along with other 3 blocks a game and he's still 23. McGee should be in their future plans as he has arguably been the Wizards best player this year.

But let's be serious he is by no means John Wall. Wall is still a franchise talent. But don't sleep on how unique of a talent McGee is himself.

In my eyes Barnes is a floater who don't have that great gene. He's gonna be very good but today's game against FSU is just another example of him not being that dominant player he was hailed to be.

I think if the Wizards get Anthony Davis and start Singleton, Davis, and McGee is their frontcourt they would instantly have one of the most formidable frontcourts in the league. Imagine teams trying to score in the paint against that kind of length. And all of them blocks are going to ignite a ton of fastbreak opps for Wall to orchestrate.

Mr....

Throw in a geef and McGee puts the "pot" in Potential... thereby eliminating anything you might have argued previously. He's destined to disappoint.

Davis and mcgee could be a Duncan and David Robinson like duo...but better.
McGee is a top 3 centre in the nba right now and I'd say he's more important.

What a joke. Mcgee belongs in the D-League. Only reason he is in the NBA is because he is exciting to watch.

Imagine teams trying to score in the paint against that kind of length. And all of them blocks are going to ignite a ton of fastbreak opps for Wall to orchestrate.

My imagination fathomed an emberassing 40-point, 30-rebound massacre by Kevin Love against your "formidable frontcourt". Sure Davis and Mcgee will swat some shots out of bounds, but what happens on the next possession?Davis and Mcgee would be the weakest frontcourt in the NBA.

John Wall is on of the most

John Wall is on of the most promising young players in league,he got potential to be one of the best he just need right guys around him..his game last night wasn't so bad..he almost had a triple double..but also McGee can bee good player...if you watch wizards playing you will see how much he improve he got that Kareem sky hook shot and he can make him almost allways..

McGee is much better this year

Wall is more important, but I am not sure John Wall is a guy who gets you to 50 wins and NBA titles. I don't see the leadership or personality to influence the players on his team. Yes he is young, but how long are we going to say that? He shoots a low fg% like Brandon Jennings. If he does not get a dunk he does not finish in the paint like you would expect. He does not create scoring chances either. He gets assisst from always having the ball or making a basic pass to a jump shooter. I am not impressed with him and expected more from him by now. Wall is more important than McGee, but McGee has been the most consistent player for that team, and has really worked on his overall game.

LOL at the people saying

LOL at the people saying McGee sucks. You guys clearly haven't watched him play this year. He's been the Wizards best player so far.

i just dont

i just dont understand how u guys would want davis, he is a stud but he is rail thin and mcgee already needs weight. Harrison barnes would fit perfect with their team. they need a superstar who can be that go go guy. Barnes has shown that ability, who cares about the game vs FSU, it was a bad game, IMO John Henson is a better shot blocker than Ant Davis, IMO... Henson is prolly the best shot blocker i have seen in a long time.. But they already have Booker and Vess, u think Ted L will take another PF in the draft?? Blatche, Book, Vess... and Davis?? dont see it

I must admit, this question

I must admit, this question is a lot closer than it would have been just 2 months ago. Despite what someone said above, there is no center in the league that has the physical package Javale has to work with. Not a healthy Bynum, not a healthy Oden, not Dwight. His combination of quickness, agility, body control, explosion, length, and overall size is otherworldy. He offsets this with a basketball IQ that makes Beasley look downright Durant-like.

He still has no idea what the words "post game" mean, and is a virtual ballstopper on the offensive end. But any about-to-be 24 year old with the physical profile of McGee, who's giving you 12-10 with 3 blocks and 52% shooting is extremely valuable.

Wall still wins, but McGee's agressiveness is giving Washington 2 legit pieces to keep or trade for good draft considerations.

Now we just need someone to ACT like a leader.

Wall is the future of the

Wall is the future of the team and whilst McGee is a good prospect Wall always wins handsdown. Barnes would be a nice fit for the Wizards to draft as he'd bring a maturity beyond his years to the team.

To all the McGee lovers would you seriously pass on Andre Drummond if he was the consensus top pick and the Wizards landed first shot at him? As I sure enough would draft him in an instant!
