NEW YORK -- John Wall isn't hiding his ambition. The season is only three games old, but the fifth-year point guard for the Wizards has a goal to lead the NBA in assists for the first time.
Marcin Gortat has a simple answer for why he has been so dominant in the middle this season.
The best part of covering the Wizards is easily Marcin Gortat, the Polish center who has begun like he's worth every penny of the five-year, $60 million deal he signed going into the season.

The Wizards' toughest matchup for the last two seasons, and Southeast Division foe, already is facing adversity three games into the season.
