Martell Webster: Wizards expect to make playoffs, aim for 5 seed

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Wizards forward Martell Webster told CBS Sports Radio 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C., that the Wizards are absolutely making the playoffs next year.

“Expectation-wise, we expected to win 30-plus games last year. That was our goal,” Webster said.

“This season is like, our expectations are, we ARE getting to the playoffs,” he said, adding they've set their sights as high as the five-seed in the Eastern Conference.

Webster also said he felt last year was his breakout year, eight years into his career, which is pretty awesome. And he said he might play the four some next season, which would be bizarre.

Webster re-signed with the Wizards this month for four years at a reported $22 million.

He's legitimately a reason why his proclamation isn't nuts. He played very well and was a consistent shooter for the Wizards last season. The team now has young depth, star players and good veterans to surround John Wall. If they can stay healthy, and that's a huge concern with this team, they have every reason to think they can make the playoffs.

The 5- eed? Well, let's walk before we run, fellas.
