  1. Arrest warrant issued for Javaris Crittenton in drive-by killing of mother of four

    Aug 26, 2011, 9:28 PM EDT

    Javaris Crittenton

    There are terrible stories every day. Stories that make you question how young lives go wrong, how people can commit terrible acts, how they can make decisions that end the lives of others, innocent or not, and ruin their own. Javaris Crittenton is currently sought by police in connection with one such story. WSB-TV in…

  2. One thing the owners really want — to get out of bad deals

    Aug 25, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Arenas_beardshot

    Next season, Kobe Bryant will be the highest paid player in the NBA. That seems fair. Rashard Lewis will be second at $22.1 million. Gilbert Arenas will be fifth at $19.2 million. Antawn Jamison will make $15 million. There are some terrible deals in the NBA landscape and one of the real sticking points in…

  3. Wall says “I’m back,” feeling ready for sophomore year

    Aug 23, 2011, 3:03 PM EDT

    walljohn_davidliamkyle_getty

    John Wall had a good rookie season — 16.4 points and 8.3 assists per game, and he assisted on 40 percent of his teammates buckets when he was on the floor. The big issue was that 40.9 percent shooting average. But Wall didn’t feel like himself. There were the usual challenging adjustments of a point…

  4. Video: The Nick and JaVale show

    Aug 12, 2011, 5:50 PM EDT

    Nick Young

    Nick Young was out getting some run in, and JaVale McGee joined him, a couple of Wizards preparing for the season we hope will come someday. Then a camera found them, and it became “The Nick and JaVale Show.” Complete with Young — the fashionable one — joking that the Wizards can win a title…

  5. Video: Nick Young drops 60 at the Drew League

    Aug 4, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Young_Nick

    While Kevin Durant is lighting up New York, Nick Young has been putting on a show out on the left coast. He was at the Drew League in Los Angeles on Sunday and dropped 60 points. Below we bring you the video proof — and you get to see is fantastic hair. That’s fashion model…

  6. Nick Young with the off-the-backboard, between-the-legs dunk

    Jul 22, 2011, 12:28 PM EDT

    Nick Young

    Lord knows when the next All-Star Weekend and NBA Dunk Contest will be, but I am starting the campaign now to have Washington’s Nick Young as part of it. As my first bit of evidence, I present this dunk from a little summer pickup fun. Off the backboard then between the legs. Damn. Someone doesn’t…

  7. Arenas tweets about gun incident, says he’s seen worse

    Jul 15, 2011, 10:58 AM EDT

    Arenas_beardshot

    The shackles are off Gilbert Arenas. He loves to tweet, but while he has an NBA contract he could get fined for putting up what he really was thinking — until the lockout. Now he can tweet whatever he wants without fear of reprisal. He was already a must follow before the shackles came off,…

  8. Video: John Wall takes it to Julius Hodge

    Jul 13, 2011, 4:11 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Since we’re not out sweltering in Vegas this week at the cancelled-and-missed Summer League — it was only 100 degrees there today — we’re monitoring all the fun leagues going on around the nation for some action. Like the North Carolina Pro-Am. That’s where John Wall is playing. Wall is coming off a good rookie…

  9. Roddy Beaubois not going to Europe, some players are

    Jul 13, 2011, 2:46 PM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    It’s time to play another round of everyone’s favorite game: “Who is going to Europe?” France’s own Roddy Beaubois — the player the Mavericks had high hopes for but who missed most of the season after a foot injury and even when he returned was not right — is one of the players who is…

  10. This is JaVale McGee planking in a freezer

    Jul 11, 2011, 5:45 PM EDT

    JaVale Planking Freezer

    The above picture depicts Wizards center JaVale McGee, who has an alter ego he calls “Pierre” and is apparently currently involved in a “planking” war with Magic guard Gilbert Arenas, lying face-down in a supermarket freezer after apparently clearing 7 feet and 2 inches of products out of it. Honestly, I’ve seen worse things stocked…

  11. Hilton Armstrong to sign with French team for next season

    Jun 30, 2011, 4:37 PM EDT

    Armstrong_Hilton

    This isn’t exactly the exodus of big name players to Europe because of the lockout we were all talking about, but we pass it along anyway. Hilton Armstrong has agreed to terms to play for ASVEL of the French league next season, according to Sportando. Armstrong played a limited role for the Wizards and Hawks…

  12. Wizards’ owner Leonsis confirms team lost money last year

    Jun 28, 2011, 1:39 PM EDT

    Ted Leonsis

    Not really shocking, especially considering Wizards owner Ted Leonsis has said he wants a hockey-like financial system for the NBA, but he admitted that his team was one of the challenged teams last season. “We lost money last year,” Leonsis told CSNWashington.com. After that, having learned the price of an owner speaking out of turn…

  13. Wizards should play even faster with Vesely in lineup

    Jun 27, 2011, 6:50 PM EDT

    Jan Vesely

    The Washington Wizards knew what they had — last year at Summer League Sam Cassell (coaching the team in Vegas) and Flip Saunders said the Wizards were going to run. They had John Wall, they were going to up the tempo and get in in the open court. And they did, they moved from 21st…

  14. Video: Jan Vesely is living the dream

    Jun 24, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Jan Vesely is my new hero. They guy is the second coming of AK-47 (well, that’s what the scouts say), got drafted into the NBA to play next to John Wall — and got the best welcome into the NBA we can remember. Damn. Impressive.

  15. Wizards may be looking to trade up to grab Kanter

    Jun 21, 2011, 5:02 PM EDT

    enes Kanter

    The Washington Wizards have apparently fallen in love with Enes Kanter’s combination of size and skill, and it appears as though they’re looking to move up in the draft in order to get him. According to Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony, the Wizards are discussing a trade that would involve them giving their #6 pick to…

  16. Wizards not trading JaVale McGee to move up in draft

    Jun 17, 2011, 1:26 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee block

    It probably went down something like this: The Washington Wizards called the Minnesota Timberwolves to inquire about what it would take to get the No. 2 pick (because likely No. 2 pick Derrick Williams would look good running on the break next to John Wall). The Timberwolves thought about it. Then they asked for JaVale…

  17. John Wall shows up at basketball clinic for kids with disabilities

    Jun 7, 2011, 5:15 PM EDT

    John Wall Fantasy Camp

    This is a pretty incredible story about the character of Wizards guard John Wall, courtesy of Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post: Figuring what the heck, [Andrew Horn, executive director of Dreams For Kids DC] told Wall that his group was about to host 40 children with disabilities for a basketball game, and invited the…

  18. Report: Wizards not among “active teams” in pursuit of Derrick Williams

    Jun 5, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    This is probably going to be a trade-heavy draft. The picks don’t have the value to make them invaluable. And with so many teams looking to improve, there’s going to be movement. But as of right now, a report says the Wizards moving up for Derrick Williams is not one of them. From the Washington…

  19. John Wall promises improvements

    May 19, 2011, 7:04 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    John Wall showed some serious flashes of brilliance over the course of his rookie campaign. Even though he was hampered by injuries for most of the year, Wall established himself as having one of the quickest first steps in the league, some of the best top-end speed in the league, and brilliant passing ability. However,…

  20. Not everybody would take Irving, Wizards favor Williams

    May 17, 2011, 7:23 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    The consensus is that Duke point guard Kyrie Irving will be the top pick in the draft. That is, unless lightning strikes twice for the Washington Wizards. Last season the Wizards won the lottery and drafted John Wall. Washington doesn’t need another point guard. So if lighting strikes twice the Wizards are going to go…

  21. What is old is new again with Wizards uniforms

    May 10, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT

    Wiz1

    There are things I feel comfortable doing as a blogger — breaking down plays, discussing strategy, talking trade rumors, divining grand meaning from simple statements that the speaker had no intention of becoming a big deal. Fashion… not in my wheelhouse. So I will reserve comments on the Washington Wizards’ new look. Maybe it will…

  22. You missed “Lap dance Tuesdays” hosted by Andray Blatche

    May 4, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    We’ve finally figured out why there were so many empty seats at American Airlines Arena in Miami at the start of Tuesday night’s game. Across town at a Miami club Andray Blatche was hosting “lap dance Tuesdays.” Not making that up. We couldn’t. We just wish we’d told you in time to get there yourself.…

  23. Nick Young says Wizards not getting home town discount

    Apr 28, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    When Gilbert Arenas was sent off to Orlando, Nick Young got thrust into a starting role. Young would have gotten his chance anyway, he was already looking better than Arenas in preseason. Young went on to average 17.4 points per game on 44.1 percent shooting, he got to the line and he shot 38.7 percent…

  24. Imagine how good John Wall will be when he is healthy

    Apr 22, 2011, 6:40 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Remember way back to the start of the season, when John Wall missed a handful of game due to a foot injury? Probably not, because when he came back he was pretty impressive. Good enough to be second in the Rookie of the Year balloting. Dude dropped 22 assists at the All-Star weekend Rookie Challenge…

  25. Wizards make it official: They will go red, white and blue next season

    Apr 21, 2011, 1:12 PM EDT

    Image (1) wizards_logo-thumb-250x183-16273.gif for post 3240

    Ted Leonsis wants his teams in the nation’s capital adorned in national colors — he did it to the NHL’s Capitals, and we knew it was going to happen with the Wizards. Thursday they made it official, according to CSN Washington. “The updating of the Wizards brand has been a priority we have focused on…
