  1. “Otto Porter is not a Big 3 guy . . .”

    Sounds like Tom Friend’s thinking is still stuck in the Capital Centre days. Here’s some more enlightened thinking: https://www.actionnetwork.com/nba/article/how-otto-porter-opens-up-all-sorts-of-possibilities-for-the-wizards

    Or he could just look at every advanced stat, or simply the fact that Otto has the highest Net Rating on the team by a country mile.

    Then he doubled down on the stupid by saying that the Wiz should’ve traded for yet another overpaid 30-year-old traditional big who doesn’t protect the rim, shoot, or play in crunch time. Wait, is Tom Friend actually Ernie Grunfeld’s burner?
