Wizards Wear Halloween Costumes

The Wizards returned from Barcelona and Berlin a few days ago, and, first things first, it was time for a charity event helping young D.C.-area boys and girls with the crucial task of selecting their Halloween costumes. Naturally, the costumes wound up on the wrong heads here and there.

"I got a costume yesterday," Nick Young told the media after practice today. "Come to Halloween practice, you might see me pop up in something."

As for the trip to Europe, let's go with a quick point-counterpoint.

DeShawn Stevenson: "I didn't like it, no. I couldn't eat my food. It was tiring. It was boring. (He said all he ate was "bread, water and Gatorade.")

Caron Butler: "I think it was something that brought us together. I think during the course of the season I think it'll be real beneficial, because that was a bonding process that we went through out there, all we had was each other over there. We went on a lot of dinners and gathered together a lot, our families bonded a lot, so I think that helped us as men."

As for the food, Caron said he "had a great time in Berlin. They had some great brats, so I was getting down and dirty with that. Once we got to Spain, I kept it simple, I tried a lot of different things, a lot of different meats. I don't know what it was, so don't ask me, but it was good, and I'm healthy. Still feel good and moving forward."

I couldn't make it to the Halloween event, which, considering Oleksiy Pecherov's attendance, was near tragic, but please make sure to check out this amazing photo gallery, which provides objective, comprehensive proof about the most bloggable team in this city.

Can somebody buy a brain for Mr. Stephenson? Berlin is kick-ass and Barcelona is certainly right now the best city in Europe to party and have fun...
