Leonsis: NHL in Better Shape than NBA

+

It seems to me that Ted Leonsis is VERY serious and sincere regarding his Go Young/Build Through the Draft strategy. Those fans hoping for a run at Lebron or Bosh should probably adjust your expectations and hopes. Those hoping for a more "Bring Out Your Dead" approach are more likely to get their wish. The other comment that I have about this story is that I am truly amazed that Leonsis seemed to be so little involved with the Wizards (after the Michael Jordan years) even though he owned 44% of the team. He is just now learning what dire straits teams are financially in the NBA? Minority owners do not get access to NBA financials? I did not realize that. Please comment as to if you believe this is just a smoke screen or under-promising exercise by our new owner.

Leonsis On The Wizards

You had me at "I'd like more first round picks". I am loving the things our very soon-to-be new owner is saying. Let's hope EG can show why Ted has faith and kept him. On getting more picks in the draft: "I'd like more first round picks. I wouldn't be surprised if you see us figure out a way to collect more, because I do think we are in a rebuilding mode. I don't think we need to be unabashed about that. We don't have a lot of players under contract, so we might as well try to create a system and a culture using young players, then using free agency and trades to augment those core young players. That's something that we've done fairly well with the Caps. We haven't had as much success yet in the playoffs, but we've built around the draft and we've used free agency and made trades, but you've got to have that young core that you believe in and the fans fall in love with."

Plead to Leonsis - Whatever It Takes, Get Kevin Pritchard

Is there anyone who agrees with me that, if the Paul Allen does not want Kevin Pritchard, we have to do ANYTHING within Ted Leonsis' power to get him?
