  1. Yi Jianlian signs deal to play in China during lockout

    Oct 10, 2011, 10:07 AM EST

    Jianlian

    Yi Jianlian, the second best player to come to the NBA out of China and who played last season for the Washington Wizards, is headed home. Yi has signed a deal to play in China during the lockout. That in and of itself is not a shock — he’s a star over there and had…

  2. Allan Houston Rule could become the Gilbert Arenas Rule

    Oct 9, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Chicago Bulls

    Rashard Lewis is talked about as the poster child for bad contracts. But Lewis is a willing defender, can hit from the outside, and was very productive for most of his contract. So when talk of the so-called amnesty clause came up recently in NBA discussions, it wasn’t Lewis whose name was linked. It was…

  3. John Wall drops moves on unsuspecting guys on the street

    Wall_celebrates

    You’re just walking down the street minding your own business, thinking about if you’d fire Hank Williams Jr. or maybe checking twitter out on your phone, then… BAM, John Wall drops a crossover on you. It happens. The Wizards’ point guard was speaking with ESPN’s high school site and talked about what could happen if…

  4. What the Wizards should do when the lockout ends…

    Sep 28, 2011, 7:37 PM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    We’re trying to be optimistic about the lockout here at PBT, and as part of that we are looking at what all 30 NBA teams should do when the lockout ends. And we’re sticking with when, not if, it ends. To see the full Western Conference list, click here. Last season in Washington D.C.: For…

  5. Murder suspect Crittenton out on bond, must wear ankle monitor

    Sep 27, 2011, 3:28 PM EST

    Javaris Crittenton, Brian Steel

    Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been released from jail on a $230,000 bond but must wear and ankle bracelet so that he will not try to skip out before a pending murder trial. That is the result of a hearing on Tuesday, one of the first steps in putting Crittenton on trial for the…

  6. Video: John Wall shines again in Indy vs. Goodman League exhibition

    Sep 25, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    walljohn_davidliamkyle_getty

    Perhaps you’re struggling to make any sense out of these exhibition games. Truth be told, there’s almost nothing to take away from them. They’re for the players to stay in playing shape, hang out, get taken care of by promoters, and make a few highlights. The trends we see with players shining can have vastly…

  7. Rashard Lewis says you can expect a whole new him next year

    Sep 18, 2011, 2:05 PM EST

    Rashard Lewis Wizards

    Rashard Lewis has become the  standard punchline for any joke about bad long-term contracts. He was paid back when he was an elite scorer in Seattle (you know, back when Seattle had a team), then was converted in the Magic system to be their perimeter trigger. He stopped working in the post or on the…

  8. Rashard Lewis: Don’t blame me for signing a huge contract

    Sep 13, 2011, 1:38 PM EST

    Rashard Lewis Wizards

    Massive guaranteed contracts are one of the real touch points of this lockout. Fans and owners can say it’s not fair their team has to pay Eddy Curry or Gilbert Arenas when they are not pulling their weight (or even playing at all). Rashard Lewis has one of those contracts. The Sonics signed him to…

  9. What if the Wizards threw a workout and nobody showed up?

    Sep 12, 2011, 10:01 PM EST

    Andray Blatche

    You keep hearing the buzz — teams are trying to get together, to work out together. Normally this is the pre-camp time when teammates workout and play pickup together at the team facilities, but thanks to the lockout there is none of that. So some team leaders are trying to organize workouts. Andray Blatche tried…

  10. Andray Blatche’s coloring book for children. It’s awesome.

    Sep 12, 2011, 4:17 PM EST

    Blatche coloring book

    When I think about who I want teaching my young daughters life lessons, the first name that comes to mind is Andray Blatche of the Washington Wizards. He of the Lapdance Tuesdays where there was no lapdancing. He of the ungodly natural talent but lacking the maturity and mental will to really exploit those gifts.…

  11. Andray Blatche says he’s totally matured

    Sep 11, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    Andray Blatche

    Andray Blatche has a world of talent. Long, with scoring versatility and an offensive viciousness, he’s not lacking for ability. But he’s never shown the mental component to cash in on the talent. Consider that as a stretch four in the first year after of his mega-extension, he shot 32% from the 16-23 range. He…

  12. Wall hoping for a breakout sophomore campaign

    Sep 6, 2011, 7:05 PM EST

    Wall_John

    John Wall‘s rookie-year numbers weren’t bad, and the Wizards point guard definitely showed flashes of stunning athleticism and amazing court vision during his first season in the NBA. Wall averaged 16 points and 8 assists last season, a feat only equaled by Russell Westbrook and Deron Williams, and showed that he has unlimited potential for…

  13. Gilbert Arenas shuts down is AgentZero twitter feed

    Aug 31, 2011, 9:33 AM EST

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Most NBA players twitter accounts — and there are hundreds now — are just plain dull. Details of where they are working out, where they are playing, some inside jokes of friends and retweets of people who ask for it because it’s their birthday. Not Gilbert Arenas’ agentzeroshow twitter feed. It was entertaining, funny, controversial,…

  14. Report: Crittenton shooting may have been revenge for robbery

    Aug 30, 2011, 11:09 PM EST

    Crittenton

    Javaris Crittenton is in custody for allegedly shooting and killing Julian Jones, a mother of four, at a drive-by in front of her Atlanta house. Crittenton claims innocence, saying he was not in the car. The question has been why would he do it? Atlanta police had always said the target was some men with…

  15. Gilbert Arenas says Crittenton became “more gangsta”

    Aug 30, 2011, 12:12 PM EST

    D067483045.jpg

    Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton are forever linked. When Gilbert Areas brought guns into the Washington Wizards locker room it was due to a dispute with Crittenton — and Crittenton said he had his own guns. Crittenton (a bit player on the Wizards) pled guilty to a misdemeanor, missed the entire rest of the season…

  16. Javaris Crittenton Update: Still at large, police performed search warrant last week

    Aug 27, 2011, 6:42 PM EST

    Javaris Crittenton

    More details are coming to light surrounding the fatal shooting in Atlanta for which police have issued an arrest warrant for former NBA player Javaris Crittenton. From the AP: A spokesman with the Atlanta police said Crittenton was not in custody. Calls to the FBI and U.S. Marshal’s office weren’t immediately returned. Three of Crittenton’s…

    Aug 26, 2011, 9:28 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 25, 2011, 10:16 AM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 23, 2011, 3:03 PM EST

    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…

  20. Video: The Nick and JaVale show

    Aug 12, 2011, 5:50 PM EST

    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…

    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…

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

    Jul 22, 2011, 12:28 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 15, 2011, 10:58 AM EST

    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,…

  24. Video: John Wall takes it to Julius Hodge

    Jul 13, 2011, 4:11 PM EST

    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…

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

    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…
