  1. Video: Darko tips in two off a jump ball (for the other team)

    Jan 14, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    The consensus on this play: Nobody had ever seen it before. Not the NBA’s twitterverse. Not Chris Webber or Kenny Smith in the TNT studios. Not anybody. Darko Milicic wins a tip during the Timberwolves victory over the Wizards, but in doing so knocks it into his own net. Two points Wizards. Just watch. You…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The night of the living blowouts

    Jan 12, 2011, 8:11 AM EDT

    John Wall

    What you missed while planning to be one of the Joker’s henchmen… The Cavaliers historically bad performance against the Lakers is our Anti-Game of he Night. The Hawks hosting the Bucks was postponed due to snow and will be played on March 15. Wizards 136, Kings 133 (OT): This was more roller coaster than basketball…

  3. JaVale McGee starts practicing for Dunk Contest

    Jan 7, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Brand_McGee_Foul

    At last summer’s USA Basketball tryout and camp, some of the best players walking the planet were in awe of JaVale McGee’s pure athleticism. In a league filled with freak athletes, McGee stands out. Unfortunately, his mind and his game are a long ways from catching up with his body can do. But that athleticism…

  4. Memphis’ O.J.Mayo, Tony Allen fight on team plane

    Jan 5, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    Tuesday night, O.J. Mayo was out of the Memphis lineup with what was officially called a case of bronchitis, but a swollen face may be the real cause. Mayo and teammate Tony Allen got into a fight over a debt from a card game on the team’s Sunday night flight and had to be separated…

  5. Quote of the day: Gilbert Arenas cracks us up

    Jan 4, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Arenas magic jumper

    “We’re the two best white shooters in the NBA.” —Gilbert Arenas to J.J. Redick, via the twitter of Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel. For the record, the biggest mistake here is that Gilbert Arenas is not a great shooter. He ranks 143 in the league in eFG% (regular field goal percentage that accounts for…

  6. Andray Blatche admits trade rumors bother him “some”

    Jan 4, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Houston Rockets

    You’d like to think Andray Blatche has been inconsistent this season because of injuries and the weight of trade rumors, but that would assume some basis of consistent play from his past to serve as a baseline. And no, the last couple months of the failing Wizards last season when they had to feed him…

  7. Report: Cavs have interest in Andray Blatche

    Jan 2, 2011, 12:05 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Houston Rockets

    The News Herald reports that the Cleveland Cavaliers have made inquiries into trading for Wizards forward Andray Blatche. It’s an interesting approach if they go down that road. The Cavaliers have Anderson Varejao and J.J. Hickson, though Hickson has fallen back into the riff-raff of the roster. Blatche would give them a legit starting power…

  8. Gilbert Arenas says Mike D’Antoni didn’t want him; D’Antoni says “huh?”

    Dec 31, 2010, 3:55 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    During his “I’ll go anywhere to get out of Washington” campaign last summer, Arenas thought about the Knicks. Guard-friendly offense, big city that needs a star that can score… seemed like a fit in his head. Until he heard what D’Antoni said about him, Arenas told Newsday. “I heard he said I wasn’t his type…

  9. Flip Saunders will not coach Wizards Wednesday night

    Dec 29, 2010, 4:52 PM EDT

    Flip Saunders

    Wizards coach Flip Saunders had to leave the team Wednesday morning, missing shoot around due to a family emergency involving his mother. Now it has been announced he will not coach the Wizards against the Pacers on Wednesday night, according to the Washington Post. Assistant Coach Randy Wittman will sit in the big chair and…

  10. More Rashard Lewis means less Al Thornton in Washington

    Dec 29, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    Al Thornton

    We don’t know exactly how good the Wizards are going to be with Rashard Lewis as their fancy new stretch four — his first three games with the team have not impressed but there is an adjustment period. Plus, being shipped from a contender to one of the worst teams in the league takes some…

  11. In wake of fight, Wizards to gauge trade value of Blatche, McGee

    Dec 28, 2010, 7:55 PM EDT

    McGee Blatche

    Right now, if you are on the Washington Wizards roster and are not a point guard known for doing the dougie, you should know you could be traded. And if you embarrass a franchise that is still sore from the Gilbert Arenas gun foolishness, you can bet that you are being shopped immediately. Which explain…

  12. Cavaliers sign Alonzo Gee

    Dec 28, 2010, 4:57 PM EDT

    Alonzo Gee

    Everywhere he has landed in the NBA, Alonzo Gee has heard mostly good things about his skills. He has been told he belongs in the NBA. Then he has been cut. Gee was the D-League Rookie of the Year, was a favorite with the Washington Wizards, left for more guaranteed money in San Antonio and…

  13. Gilbert Arenas from 75 feet, off the shot clock, nothing but net

    Dec 28, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Arenas magic

    This is the shot of the year so far — even if it didn’t count. Yes, by the rulebook the refs got this one right. Shots that hit the shot clock are considered dead because the clock is out of play. So what? If you were going to break that rule once, this would be…

  14. Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee suspended by Wizards for game due to fight

    Dec 25, 2010, 10:46 PM EDT

    McGee Blatche

    As if the Wizards were not going to face enough problems Sunday in San Antonio, now they are going ahead without their two centers. Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee have been suspended by the team for one game after an altercation between the two outside a Washington D.C. area bar turned physical and the Wizards’…

  15. Wizards JaVale McGee, Andray Blatche reportedly fight each other at club

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:50 AM EDT

    McGee Blatche

    Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee haven’t functioned too well together on the court as the “frontcourt of the future” in Washington. But apparently things are worse off it — the two reportedly exchanged punches outside a Washington club early Friday morning, according to Michael Lee at the Washington Post. The two both verbally abused each…

  16. Gilbert Arenas happy coming off bench

    Dec 24, 2010, 11:23 AM EDT

    Arenas magic jumper

    Gilbert Arenas looked settled into his new Magic role Thursday night — 14 points, 9 assists off the bench. Of course, everything with the Magic looked settled for one game — granted, one game against the team with the best record in the league, but one game. There still may be changes ahead. But Arenas…

  17. Rashard Lewis dealing with being traded

    Dec 21, 2010, 3:23 PM EDT

    rashardlewis

    For every Gilbert Arenas given a second chance on a contending team, there is a guy shipped from a contender to a rebuilding team who has to make the best of it. Meet Rashard Lewis. The veteran stretch four has gone from being a starter on a strong playoff team to the veteran on a…

  18. John Wall has bone bruise in knee, likely out at least a week

    Dec 20, 2010, 7:49 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Washington Wizards

    As of Monday night when the Wizards took on the Bobcats, rookie and franchise guy John Wall will have missed five of the last six for Washington. Don’t expect him back soon. What had been thought of as tendonitis (which coach Flip Saunders said could be chronic) he is also fighting through a bone bruise…

  19. Gilbert Arenas says goodbye to Washington

    Dec 20, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Gilbert Arenas was a dichotomy in Washington — for a while he rekindled interest in what seemed a long-dead franchise. He could ball and he was entertaining. On the other hand there was the juvenile idiocy that led to the gun charges and suspension. Now he is sent off to try and resurrect his career…

  20. Wizards to bring back Lester Hudson for point guard depth

    Dec 20, 2010, 1:53 PM EDT

    Lester Hudson

    Now that the Wizards have successfully ditched Gilbert Arenas’ massive contract for Rashard Lewis’ still-massive-but-not-quite-as-back-breaking deal, they’re in need of a little point guard help. John Wall is a stud and Kirk Hinrich a competent backup, but for games like tonight when Wall is out with injury and Hinrich is left to run the 1…

  21. Gilbert Arenas has one more chance to change his legacy

    Dec 19, 2010, 3:25 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Orien Greene did not get a second chance. Not yet, anyway. Len Bias did not get a second chance. Ron Artest did. Many players with mistakes worse than Gilbert Arenas have gotten second chances and many players with lighter misdeeds have not gotten such chances at redemption.  There’s no rhyme or reason to second chances…

  22. Wizards lose to Heat in impressive fashion even for Wizards

    Dec 19, 2010, 12:25 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Of course it had to happen this way. Without John Wall (injury), without Gilbert Arenas (traded), the Wizards used the energy of Josh Howard and the hot shooting of Nick Young to push the Heat to the very brink. The Heat seemed to have very little interest in taking this game. It seemed too difficult…

  23. Orlando makes trades: sends Vince Carter and others to Phoenix, get Arenas from Washington

    Dec 18, 2010, 3:31 PM EDT

    orlphxtrade

    Otis Smith just swung for the fences. We’ll see if he connects. The Orlando Magic have traded Vince Carter, Mikael Pietrus, and Marcin Gortat to the Phoenix Suns for Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu, a first-round pick and Earl Clark. The Magic have also traded Rashard Lewis to the Washington Wizards for Gilbert Arenas. ESPN, CBSSports.com,…

  24. Report: Suns brought into Magic trade talks about Hedo return

    Dec 18, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Phoenix Suns

    Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Magic have contacted the Phoenix Suns and are discussing a trade which would return Hedo Turkoglu to Orlando where he had his best years. Multiple reports have the Magic considering sending Vince Carter along with Marcin Gortat in exchange for Turkoglu, and potentially Jason Richardson. These talks are…

  25. Magic reportedly likely to make a move soon, could be targeting Gilbert Arenas

    UPDATE (10:14 PM EST): One more confirmation of the initial reports, courtesy of Michael Lee of the Washington Post: The rumor that will never die has regained new life, as Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Wizards are engaged in serious discussions with the Orlando Magic to acquire Gilbert Arenas. According to…
