im pretty sure Celtics defense with Avery has been better than the Wiz's defense with Wall.
Celtics with Bradley on court: 103.0 points per 100 possessions
Wizards with Wall on court: 97.6 points per 100 possessions
The Wizards as a team since Wall has returned are averaging 95.1 points per 100 possessions, which would rank 1st in the NBA. The Pacers have the #1 defense normally, allowing 100.3 points per 100 possessions.
The Wizards were playing good defense before Wall returned, were in the lower half of the top 10 rankings IIRC. Wall is a pretty underrated defender so them improving with his return doesn't surprise me, however I wouldn't attribute their stellar defensive numbers strictly to his return. It's been a team effort.

"#herewebuy" night in sacramento. they came up about a thousand short of selling out but they chanted Here we stay! the kings got the win also. the fans in sacramento genuinely seem like they want the kings to stay. i know it would be cool to get a team back in seattle and all but it would suck for the kings. the fans really are good even if they might not sell out every game.
and at dwight howards dad. these titles just keep getting better and better.
#1 Kofi Fan!

Yeah, LA's effort on D is pretty suspect especially in transition.
I know it doesn't need to be said but LeBron is scary good at this point, pretty clearly the best in the league. I have a feeling he won't get MVP and suffer from the same shit Jordan did where they just gave the award to someone new just for the sake of it. Probably why KD will win it this year.
Wade usually picks his game up around this time of the year, don't think he's quite done yet but he has declined from his 2011 self. I like Wade but his style of play with the way he leans into the defender and just tries to create contact out of nothing pisses me off.
