Jamison leaves the building


Nothing makes you appreciate TV news cameras more than scenes like this, the cameras and print folks following the departed star to his car, the star remaining mute in front of their shouted questions, and then an uncomfortable spell of silence.

And now, not counting suspended superstars, here are the players remaining from the 2006-2007 Washington Wizards:

Andray Blatche.

Hmmm.

Did he say "I loved them more than they loved me" in response to what he had to say to the fans? Couldn't quite catch it.

That car is DOPE, 'Twan.

Well done, sir!

he probably meant he loved the fans more than the team loved him, he better know that the fans appreciated his effort and the way he handled himself

Antwan will definitely be missed. He was a real part of the DC community, and he really had the respect of the fans. He knows it.

Antwan, I hope you know how much we respect the way you handled yourself here and the way you played ball here. Thanks for always giving it your all.

I actually am happy you're hitting the road. I think a new start will be a good for you. I hope the transition isn't too hard on your family.

Great Trade!!!!

Gotta admit the upside to the new look wizards is lookin pretty damn good. We gotta couple of 1st round picks coming to us, add that to thorton and the other young guys we already have, sign at least one major free agent this summer and maybe even resign miller, get gilbert back (yes I believe he can still perform at a very high level and we will never get equal value for him) and we should be set to at least get an eigth spot next season. This is of course if all goes to plan, we land a bosh or wade, gilbert plays way better, and pray for john wall...monroe wouldnt be half bad either.
How sick would it be to have a lineup of arenas
wade
miller
monroe/blatche
thorton/mcgee

Hey bbachrac! Are you that dumb?

1st. Looking good? The only thing lookin good is that we helped the Cavs practically to a championship. We shouldn't be helping that team at all.

2nd. Where are all these moves going to do for us as the fans? Nothing in the short term that's for sure. Long term? Well, you've seen how sorry this team has been since '78.

3rd. This team is just plain disgusting. The only reason they are doing this is not to start over. What Grunfeld is doing is just making this team more suitable for purchase to the new owner(s).

4th. Did I say this team is disgusting? Grunfled is now just running it like he was in charge of some fantasy team. We essentially GAVE AWAY FOR FREE, players that we should've traded when they had value, like maybe a couple of years ago.

Grunfeld is just using the Gilbert as an excuse to "blow" this team up to cover up his recent mismanagement of this team.

WaPo's player is a piece b/c you can't turn down the volume during commercials. And feel free to say it's not on your computer, but it isn't my programs or lack thereof. Weak.

If the Sea Dogs win there last 31 games, they will probably make the playoffs with 49 wins.

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING TWAN!! I will definitely be a Cavs fan the rest of the year. That guy was pure class and he deserves a championship as much as anyone in the league. And he certainly fits what the Cavs need: another rebounder who can take the ball outside and score reliably.

As for the Wiz, I hope this gives Andre, Randy, JeVale and Nick a chance to find out if one is a future superstar. Let's hope we don't trade whoever it turns out to be before they blossom. Although that would be par for the course...

@DaleGribble: Man wake up and smell the coffee. It's over. We tried it for 6 years and it didn't work. And now we have to rebuild. So what do you do? In the NFL, you tear up contracts, convert future money to guaranteed money and try to keep on. In the NBA, you trade your big money guys for expiring contracts so you can get salary cap relief.

So yeah it sucks they dealt him to the Cavs but at least they got a lot back: salary cap relief, draft pick and a good player.

Thanks for the memories, Drew Gooden! It was a great run while it lasted. One day your practice jersey will hang from the rafters to commemorate the jumpers you knocked down over Sam Cassell.
