After a magical start to the season, the Washington Wizards are starting to fall apart. The team initially started off at the top of the Eastern Conference. However, a mid-season slump saw the team drop all the way to the 11th spot, well out of playoff contention at this point.

There are plenty of reasons why the once-strong Wizards are slumping. After another loss this season, another reason was potentially revealed: locker room troubles. Spencer Dinwiddie, one of the new acquisitions of the team, had a rather telling answer to the question about the Wizards' leadership issues. (via Chase Hughes)

“It's an interesting situation. I spoke up a little bit early on [this season]. It wasn't necessarily welcomed. And so, like I said, I try to do whatever's asked of me. At the end of the day, everybody has a role to play…

When Spencer Dinwiddie went to the Bradley Beal-led Wizards, things didn't go so well. The former Nets guard struggled mightily, averaging 13.3 points per game on sub-par shooting. Him speaking out about team issues likely didn't sit well with other players, knowing how he himself has been struggling on that end.

Russell Westbrook's departure from the team meant that the Wizards also lost a vocal leader on their team. The onus was on the organization and Bradley Beal to figure out the hierarchy of the team. Looking at Dinwiddie's comments, it's safe to say they're still a work in progress on that end. There's still plenty of time for them to turn this season around, though.
