Solid deal. I like the touch of "EA Sports Analytics" as an in-universe measure of the player ratings, too.

Thanks! I traded based on ratings and didn't discover the mediocre 3PT% until after the trade, so I felt I had to justify the decision :lol:. I'm hoping it works out well because his FG, 3PT, and O Aware ratings are solid.

For those interested, here are ratings comparisons for Morris Peterson vs. Marko Jaric and Alton Murray vs. Jared Jeffries.

And here are the ratings for all the newcomers:

I'm very excited about this roster. I now have 3PT threats in the starting lineup and off the bench.

Damn, you really are going for all the marksman! I guess Jaric sucked that much. :lol:

Cavs spoil Wizards' season opener
By WashingtonWizards.com staff

vs. Cleveland | L 83-107 | Box Score

Ouch.

Larry Hughes apparently hasn't lost touch with the Verizon Center's rims since leaving the Wizards last year. He lit up the place for 27 points, hitting contested shot after contested shot. All of Washington and even LeBron (19 pts) paled in comparison.

I think we were trying to play show-and-tell with our new guys and neglected our gameplan. We know the newcomers can and will contribute, but we can't lose sight of what made us successful last season.
- Eddie Jordan


Indeed. Rookie Alton Murray jacked up 12 3s in his debut but managed to convert 50% of them for an impressive 18 points. 4 Wizards scored in double figures, but the real story was the astonishing 26 TOs and 24 fouls - uncharacteristic for a fundamentally-solid, veteran team. The turnovers will likely subside as the newcomers continue to meld, and the fouls were blatant frustration fouls as the Wizards frontcourt was dominated by Big Z and the Cavs.

It was a disappointing Eastern conference opener but will likely prove an anomaly as the Wizards figure things out.

Not the start you wanted, but at least Murray is knocking it down from range to start the year.

Yeah, it's always tough to integrate new guys and play your game instead of just trying to show off with them.
