No. 20: The Washington Wizards

Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose are at odds about whether the Wizards will make the playoffs, but they agree that John Wall will have a bounce-back year and that first-round pick Otto Porter may not live up to expectations. Also, while reminiscing about his days champagning and campaigning with Chris Webber in Washington, a candid Rose reveals that he and his former Fab Five teammate are no longer on speaking terms.
