    Ted Leonsis on the philosophical model the Wizards are using for building their team – “Signing three stars [like Miami or Boston] is a difficult task for the Wizards — and most other NBA teams. Look around the league and you can count on one hand the teams that have been successful and uniquely constructed that way.” … “If you would like to compare our strategy with another team, I would hope to say we are building like Oklahoma City. They have a great franchise and serve as a model for the draft-and-develop way to construct a team — they added vets via trades and retained their own players.”

    So being that emulating a model whose successes can be counted on one hand is too easy, The Wizards are playing the NBA on hard mode by going after a model whose successes can be counted on one finger!
