It's time for the Washington Wizards to earn some respect. Owner Ted Leonsis certainly thinks so. "I think that all of our focus, all of our attention, is to make the playoffs this year," said Leonsis at a preseason press conference.

It's been a painful rebuild, with the team going 72-158 since they drafted John Wall in 2010. In fact, the formerly-known-as-the-Bullets squad has the longest active drought of a 50-plus win season at 34 seasons and counting. Yep, 34. But with Wall having just signed a new five-year extension, and remembering that the team went on a 20-15 tear last year after Wall's return, there are finally real reasons for optimism in Washington.
