Verizon Center needs a new banner
Remember how long it took to take down Gilbert Arenas's image from the side of Verizon Center. Less than 24 hours, is the answer.
Well, it's been well more than 24 hours since the Wizards announced they were shipping off Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood, and yet the 6th street side of Verizon Center still celebrates the departed stars, as an e-mailer this afternoon pointed out.
You could fairly ask, What are they supposed to do at this point? Cut and paste Butler and Haywood out of the picture? Make a Nick Young/Dominic McGuire design? Print up a banner of G-Wiz and the Wizard Girls? Though I'm sure they'd get rid of G-Wiz for 10 cents of cap space. Still, after their haste to get rid of the 6th Street image of a guy still on their roster, this will get weird pretty quickly.
Meanwhile, Reader Adam checks in from Universal Studios in Orlando, where he found his way to the NBA City store. They never got the message from David Stern.
There was a rack where they were selling $180 jerseys for $100 and there were several Arenas jerseys mixed in. I thought, maybe it was all players who were traded or other jerseys that were obsolete, but I definitely saw a Tim Duncan Spurs jersey mixed in there.
Check back next week, Adam. I'm sure you'll be able to get a swell deal on an Arenas/Butler/Haywood trio.
