Wiz-Cavs III: More Trash Talk

Covering the Wiz-Cavs build-up from a Chicago hotel room....

LeBron James: "I wanted to play someone else, but if we have to play somebody, I'm glad it's Washington."

Comment: I do not understand this.

Gilbert Arenas "Last Blog of Season" Report: I think everybody wants Cleveland in that first round. They've been a .500 team ever since they made that trade and everybody wants a chance at that matchup. We want Cleveland for our own reasons, we don't think they can beat us in the playoffs three years straight. It's hard to beat a team three years straight. We want to try our luck."

Comment: So he won't talk to the media in order to keep the hype machine down, but then he'll blog this?

Gilbert Arenas "Another Last Blog of Season" Report: "I'm still not talking to the media. There's nothing we need to talk about. I mean, I might podium talk after I hit a couple game winners ... But locker room talk is off limits. I don't want to bring out the hype machine right now. I'm laying low. I'll let DeShawn hype everything up. I'll leave that to DeShawn and LeBron.

"It's funny, those two don't play the same position, but DeShawn told Caron that he'll guard LeBron (sounds like a children's nursery school rhyme) so that Caron can rest his legs. DeShawn was like, "I'll run him around and play D on him and get the fouls so you can just go off on the other end." So we have our own little gimmicks we're brewing. With a team like the Cavaliers and a player like LeBron, all you need is distractions. We got to be Bush. We got to be Bush-league. We're having everybody talking about the war, when we just want to get the oil. We're Bushing it. That's all we're doing. We're trying distract LeBron over here while we try to get some wins over there. That's all we're doing."

Comment: So now he's ripping LeBron James and the president. What, he's got nothing for Tiger Woods and the Pope? And yeah, I'm just bitter that he doesn't talk to us any more.

LeBron James: "James agreed that Stevenson's comments added to the rivalry and said he won't address those comments again."


Charles Barkley: "I think the Washington Wizards have got to be the dumbest team in the history of civilization."

Comment: Yeah, he's just bitter because Gilbert's taking on the Washington Times and the Prez.
