Washington Wizards

  1. John Wall and the cupboard of Doritos

    Jan 31, 2011, 1:20 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    NBA players — even with all that money and all those professional trainers and nutritionists at their fingertips — fall into some bad eating habits like the rest of us. Coming out of college — where they had buffets of food in the dining hall and coaches trying to get them to bulk up for…

  2. Report: Javaris Crittenton to sign in D-League

    Jan 26, 2011, 6:30 PM EST

    D067483045.jpg

    Javaris Crittenton is getting another shot, this time in the D-League. He has to be approved by the league but that is expected to happen, followed by Crittenton being picked up by the Dakota Wizards, according to Scott Schroeder at FanHouse. It’s a road back to the league for a guy that showed a lot…

  3. Andray Blatche calls in to radio show to defend his defenseless play

    Jan 25, 2011, 3:18 PM EST

    Andray Blatche blocked

    We could tell you how bad Andray Blatche played last night (in PBT’s recaps we said he should have been benched) but we’ll let Wizards coach Flip Saunders tell you, courtesy our media brothers in arms at CSNWashington.com: “He was terrible, he was bad.  He was bad.  He didn’t look like he had energy or…

  4. D’Antoni not that worried about Knicks six-game losing streak

    Jan 24, 2011, 10:36 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    When a hitter is in a slump in July — let’s say, hypothetically the entire Dodgers roster — there seems to be a game or two where he starts hitting the ball hard but still can’t buy a hit. You can feel the slump’s about to end, it just won’t. Mike D’Antoni sounds that way…

  5. Wizards getting trade calls about Kirk Hinrich

    Jan 18, 2011, 6:49 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Around this time of year, a month before the trade deadline, you’d be hard pressed to find an NBA player who wasn’t asked about in trade talks. But some of those are more interesting, more likely to be moved than others. On of those is Kirk Hinrich — a quality guard owed $8 million next…

  6. John Wall asks coach to fine him when he sulks

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:24 AM EST

    John Wall, Deron Williams

    John Wall played maybe his best game of the season Monday. Matched up on the elite Deron Williams of Utah, Wall had 19 points (7-of-12 shooting) and a career high 15 assists — one of those a pass to Nick Young in the corner to seal the win with a three. Wall did a good…

  7. John Wall’s injuries holding him back

    Jan 17, 2011, 10:47 AM EST

    Kevin Love, John Wall

    John Wall has been solid — he’s averaging 15.3 points and 8.9 assists per game — but he has not been what everyone hoped. We expected a guy who was going to be the next great point guard in the league and to show that from day one, but he plays like a guy still…

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

    Jan 14, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 12, 2011, 8:11 AM EST

    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…

  10. JaVale McGee starts practicing for Dunk Contest

    Jan 7, 2011, 1:38 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 5, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 4, 2011, 5:09 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 4, 2011, 1:10 PM EST

    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…

  14. Report: Cavs have interest in Andray Blatche

    Jan 2, 2011, 12:05 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 31, 2010, 3:55 PM EST

    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…

  16. Flip Saunders will not coach Wizards Wednesday night

    Dec 29, 2010, 4:52 PM EST

    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…

  17. More Rashard Lewis means less Al Thornton in Washington

    Dec 29, 2010, 1:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 28, 2010, 7:55 PM EST

    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…

  19. Cavaliers sign Alonzo Gee

    Dec 28, 2010, 4:57 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 28, 2010, 1:46 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 25, 2010, 10:46 PM EST

    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’…

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

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:50 AM EST

    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…

  23. Gilbert Arenas happy coming off bench

    Dec 24, 2010, 11:23 AM EST

    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…

  24. Rashard Lewis dealing with being traded

    Dec 21, 2010, 3:23 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 20, 2010, 7:49 PM EST

    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…
