Nick Young Goes Home

What we learned about the Wizards during all-star break.

1) Brendan Haywood, who was astonished to learn how many calories are in Krispy Kremes, recently added orange roughy to his training table and particularly enjoys shrimp with saffron rice, while Caron Butler has never considered vegetarianism.

2) Antawn Jamison believes in angels, and got that large new tattoo on his left arm in memory of his grandmother.

3) Gilbert suggests that his absence from Team USA's mix might be because of his Adidas sponsorship, while Jerry Colangelo says it was because of his performance last time.

4) In a Canadian article that references both Gilbert and Clinton Portis, Chris Bosh, fresh off his entree into the world of weird NBA online videos, says he doesn't want to be all controversial (and honest) like Gil:

In Bosh's mind, there is a happy medium between the hyper-opinionated personality of a guy such as Arenas, and the stereotypical, cliché-spewing athlete.

Given the choice between the two, Bosh still leans toward the latter. At least on the court.

"You won't see those [characters] at the game or anything," Bosh said. "But I have some ideas that I think are pretty fresh."

5) Nick Young supports Ventura College women's hoops. He was a celebrity guest at UCLA-USC, listed alongside Tom Selleck and Al Cowlings and Matt Leinart, and received a nice new USC jacket from AD Mike Garrett, which can be seen here.

Hey, perhaps there is a chance his absence from the team has something to do with forces outside of the court. He mentioned his Adidas contract, but maybe his blog has something do with it as well. I think they may be afraid that Gilbert may something about the team on his blog whenever he feels slighted.

Brendan Haywood was also shocked to learn that he doesn't have to fill a quota for ill-fated hook shot attempts.

When we get Etan back, we'll be able to contrast Brendan's ill-advised hook shot attempts with Etan's always-disastrous habit of dribbling in the paint. It's like a revue of fundamentally poor big-man play with those two. Though I guess they do some good stuff as well.

Uzo Ometu, next you'll be saying Bobby Boswell was a better player when he wasn't blogging....
