  1. 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…

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

    Jul 13, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    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…

  3. This is JaVale McGee planking in a freezer

    Jul 11, 2011, 5:45 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 30, 2011, 4:37 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 28, 2011, 1:39 PM EST

    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…

  6. Wizards should play even faster with Vesely in lineup

    Jun 27, 2011, 6:50 PM EST

    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…

  7. Video: Jan Vesely is living the dream

    Jun 24, 2011, 8:20 AM EST

    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.

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

    Jun 21, 2011, 5:02 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 17, 2011, 1:26 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 7, 2011, 5:15 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 5, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    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…

  12. John Wall promises improvements

    May 19, 2011, 7:04 PM EST

    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,…

  13. Not everybody would take Irving, Wizards favor Williams

    May 17, 2011, 7:23 PM EST

    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…

  14. What is old is new again with Wizards uniforms

    May 10, 2011, 12:08 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 4, 2011, 2:14 PM EST

    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.…

  16. Nick Young says Wizards not getting home town discount

    Apr 28, 2011, 11:26 AM EST

    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…

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

    Apr 22, 2011, 6:40 PM EST

    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…

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

    Apr 21, 2011, 1:12 PM EST

    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…

  19. Shorthanded Wizards bringing in Larry Owens from D-League

    larry-owens

    Remember yesterday when we told you that five key Washington Wizards were done for the rest of the season? (Of course you do, you commit every story here to memory. What else have you got to do?) That leaves nine guys on the Wizards roster — a roster that has won three in a row…

  20. Young, Howard among five Wizards shut down for season

    Apr 5, 2011, 12:49 PM EST

    Nick Young

    Well, this is really shutting it down. From our man Frank Hanrahan at CSN Washington: Wizards coach Flip Saunders has just announced that leading scorer Nick Young, forward Josh Howard, forward Rashard Lewis, guard Cartier Martin and center Hamidy N’Diaye are all done for the season, with each of them nursing knee injuries. Forward Trevor…

  21. Wall suspended one game for Ilgauskas altercation

    Mar 31, 2011, 7:10 PM EST

    278-Heat_Wizards_Basketball.sff.embedded.prod_affiliate.81

    The league has announced that Wizards guard John Wall will be suspended one game for his role in an altercation that caused Wall, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Juwan Howard to all be ejected from Wednesday’s Wizards-Heat game. Here is the league’s statement on the matter: Wall has been suspended for his Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two, whichincluded…

  22. Video: JaVale McGee swats away Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade

    Mar 31, 2011, 9:13 AM EST

    JaVale McGee block

    This is how you defend the rim. We keep telling you that in today’s NBA — with no handchecking on the perimeter — you have to have a guy who can protect the rim. Exactly like this. JaVale McGee is textbook on Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Not that it helped the Wizards in this…

  23. Video: John Wall throws punch at Big Z, leads to ejections

    Mar 30, 2011, 10:52 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    We already told you what happened, but you should see it for yourself (via our friends at CSNWashington.com) Zydrunas Ilgauskas had the ball in the high post guarded by John Wall (on a little scramble play, obviously that was not the regular matchup). Ilgauskas used his elbow to create a little space, Wall was trying…

  24. John Wall, Juwan Howard, Zydrunas Ilgauskas all ejected

    Mar 30, 2011, 8:07 PM EST

    Wall_John

    John Wall, Juwan Howard, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas have all just been ejected from the Heat-Wizards game. The initial incident occurred when Ilgauskas was holding the ball in the high post. Wall was attempting to swipe at the ball, and Ilgauskas gave Wall two quick elbows to the face for his trouble. In retaliation, Wall fired…

  25. Wizards’ rookie Booker done for season with crack in foot

    Mar 30, 2011, 11:38 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Washington Wizards

    Trevor Booker had developed into a fun little surprise in Washington. The rookie out of Clemson dropped 26 and 13 on Toronto a couple weeks ago and had a double-double against Denver earlier in the week. Plus he was just fun pounding away inside, which seemed a good balance with John Wall. And it looks…
