The Washington Wizards finished up the 2011-12 season with a 20-46 record (30.3%). On a bright note, they won six games in a row to finish the season. Here is a look at the players who made the biggest impacts this year:
Team MVP: John Wall - 21-year old point guard John Wall was the best player on the Wizards last year. He played in 66 games (all starts) for the Wizards last year and he averaged 36.2 minutes, 16.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 8.0 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Wall was the focal part of the defensive game plan for opposing teams and he still got his points and assists.
Biggest Surprise: Trevor Booker - 24-year old power forward Trevor Booker got his shot to show what he could really do in the middle of the 2011-12 season and he looked good before an injury ended his year early. Booker played in 50 games (32 starts) for the Wizards last year and he averaged 25.2 minutes, 8.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 1.0 steal per game on 53.1% shooting from the floor. He has a nice upside.
Biggest Disappointment: Andray Blatche - The Wizards gave 25-year old Andray Blatche a nice big contract and he paid them back with an utter lack of effort. Blatche played in 26 games (13 starts) for the Wizards last year and he avearaged 24.1 minutes, 8.5 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists on 38% shooting from the floor. He is going to have to come to training camp focused and motivated to get back into the good graces of Wizards’ management.
