JaVale McGee wins best dressed Wizard

By Dan Steinberg


I actually like the way the Wizards are now openly flirting with the camera during their efforts to win the occasional Best Dressed contest. I mean, Andray Blatche is making eyes over his sunglasses, and JaVale McGee is sliding into the picture from off-camera and then adjusting his tie in an imaginary mirror. That's good work, there.

And just to save you the work, I know you want to make a comment about how maybe if the players spent more time lifting weights/studying film/praying to the basketball gods and less time attempting to win the Best Dressed Contest, the team would go from below average to the No. 2 seed in the East. I don't really think it works that way. I'm pretty sure spending 20 seconds preening for the camera does not prevent you from winning basketball games. But you can think whatever you want.

Your logic and reason have no place on the internet.

Dray's military-inspired jacket with the front pockets is fresh to def. Hamady is sporting something from the Paul Hogan collection. Gawdawful. Not a fan of JaVale's ovally jacket collar either, but he can steal all of the best-dressed Ws he wants if it leads to 17 boards. THESE KIDS NEED ENCOURAGEMENT!

All three need to take some fashion courses. Before that, learn to play defense for 48 minutes and play as a team so they can win some games. Wizards might have the worst chemistry in the league!!

I don't like any of those outfits. If you ask me they look like the 3 Stooges as refugees in Sudan fleeing authoritarian basketball rule.

Steinberg, let me know when the Spurs/Bulls/Lakers/Jazz/Thunder/etc. do the same. Then I will be okay with it.

It's not about attitude right? Just time spent? Hahahahahahahaha, you know nothing about being a competitive athlete.

Really, a fashion contest? Maybe McGee can find time for film study after shopping at Nordstrom and practicing for the dunk contest.

It's gotten embarrassing for this team. An actual quote from the Comcast postgame: "This Bucks team is only two games out of the playoffs, so it's a solid win for the Wizards."

This is like winning the tallest midget contest....These dudes dress TERRIBLY. Ughhhh....just awful. These are the three ugliest jackets I have ever seen.

they're allowed to fun. some of you are debbie downers. people forget that nick, mcgee, blatche, hamady...these guys weren't lottery picks...don't expect them to be all stars. however, i would go ahead and say mcgee and nick have turned into fairly solid picks, and blatche was a mid 2nd rounder...could be worse. the fact is that the wizards need another top 5 pick. they need stars. every great team has one.
