BleacherReport's Howard Beck thinks maybe everybody just underestimated the Wizards.
"I don't think this is a matter, so much about what's gone wrong with the Bulls as it is a matter of what's gone right with the Wizards," Beck said on SportsNet Central Thursday.

Beck went on to talk about the impact Nene has on the Wizards and how he makes them a different team.
