John Wall, Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris called out teammates after Friday's loss to the Kings.
The Wizards are off to a 1-4 start and things are turning sour in the locker room. Wall and Beal mentioned that people are complaining about shots and playing time while coach Scott Brooks called out Otto Porter by name saying he, "can't worry about [his shots]." Earlier this season Brooks said Porter was one of the best shooters in the league and was begging him to shoot more but now he is playing less and shooting less than he was a year ago. He played only 22 minutes and took six shots against the King so it's difficult to see why the coach is singling him out after this loss. The Wizards went from 4th seed to 8th seed last year and are now struggling to start this season with the same core group. Usually if a core group stays together, they get progressively better so this is a bit strange but it is also still very early in the season.
