Wizards Insider: October 1, 2006 - October 7, 2006

Good Hoop today...

The Wiz won't officially scrimmage until tomorrow afternoon but Eddie Jordan divided his team up and let them run in an unofficial scrimmage today and the hoop was as real as I've seen all week. The fellas were really getting after it. A few highlights: -Jarvis Hayes looked great....

Les Wiz Day 4

If Team USA's experience at this summer's World Championships didn't serve as a lessson, then how about Philly losing to FC Barcelona? I know it's just preseason and the Sixers are hardly championship contenders but still, that's a bit shocking. The World is catching up. By the way, that was...

Abe Hits Camp

First, some housekeeping issues from the day's first practice: Darius Songaila (pinched nerve in back) missed practice again this morning and will continue to be out until he gets better. Caron Butler suited up and practiced and hurting his left foot at the end of practice yesterday. Jarvis Hayes and...

Jeffries 'Balancing' Out the Knicks

CHARLESTON -- Spoke briefly with Jared Jeffries today at New York Knicks' training camp at the College of Charleston, where the former Wizard is being looked upon to provide "balance" - the word used by President of Basketball Operations/Coach Isiah Thomas - to a team that won just 23 games...

Les Wiz, Day 3

The news of the day Wednesday was Ernie Grunfeld's contract extension but the move shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone who has spoken with owner Abe Pollin this summer. Pollin is thrilled with the job Grunfeld has done and wants to keep the momentum going. Abe is...

Ernie Is Extended

The Wizards just announced that they have reached terms of a multi-year contract extension with president of basketball operations Ernie Grunfeld. Don't know many details yet but I'll be talking to Ernie soon and will write on it in detail for tomorrow's paper. The move is somewhat of a...

More Les Wiz from Day 2

The Wizards did their first intensive scrimmaging this afternoon during the lone workout of the day. If you have NBA TV (it's on my comcast feed back in DC) you would have had a chance to see the fellas get up and down while actually playing some real basketball....

The Heat Is On Isiah, Knicks

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Just made it down here to check out the New York Knicks. . .I know, why them? They stink. But there isn't anyone in the NBA in a hotter seat than President of Basketball Operations/Coach Isiah Thomas, who admitted today -- as he has often since he...

Day 2 With Les Wiz

The Wiz are on the court once today after going twice yesterday so I thought I'd drop in and share a little info before today's workout. There has been a lot of talk about defense around this team all offseason and in the last few days and I think everyone...

Not a bog

The Redskins are rolling and the MLB playoffs are underway but as we all know, it's really basketball season. That's why I'm here in lovely Richmond (ridiculous construction and all) for the first day of Wizards training camp. I had a smooth drive down this morning and pulled onto the...

Garnett and Iverson, Committed or Crazy?

As training camp begins for most teams in the NBA today, the two most compelling figures are Kevin Garnett and Allen Iverson, the titleless superstars with the longest tenures with the same team in the NBA. I have to give Garnett and Iverson credit for constantly expressing their loyalties to...
