Wizards Insider: October 8, 2006 - October 14, 2006

'Messiah' Leads Comeback Class of 2002

Jay Williams' attempt to comeback from a horrific motorcycle accident with the New Jersey Nets has captured most of the headlines this preseason, but as one of the commenters -- is that what these people are called? Or is it commentators? -- on this blog made clear to me yesterday,...

Going to Cleveland

Sorry I didn't post anything this morning. Had to take the dog for a walk, pick up the wife's car from the shop, hustle down to Verizon Center for practice and then rap out a story for tomorrow's paper before hitting the airport for a flight to Cleveland for...

Jackson Discourages, While Williams Encourages

Busy day in Indiana yesterday, with Pacers guard Stephen Jackson getting a felony charge of criminal recklessness and misdemeanor counts of battery and disorderly conduct and with Jay Williams returning to action more than three years after a motocycle accident nearly left him without a leg, let alone a career....

Can We Get the Regular Season Here?

Awoke to a coating of snow here in Chicago this morning if you can believe that. As for last night's preseason game between the Bulls and Wizards, I'll just say this: thank goodness it's over. Finally. I thought preseason football was unwatchable. The main problem was that the officials...

Courtside in Chicago

My plane finally made it out of Washington this afternoon and I was able to hustle my way to the United Center for tonight's game which tips off in about 45 minutes. I just spoke with coach Eddie Jordan and he said he will go with a starting lineup...

Going to Chi-town

My plan was to blog something once I got to Chicago, you know, maybe give you a feeling for how crazy the place is over the Bears right now by counting all of the Dick Butkus and Walter Payton jerseys on the street but my plane is delayed and...

Stoudemire Is Back! Sort Of

Took some time to check out the Philadelphia-Phoenix game on ESPN2 yesterday and watch Amare Stoudemire back on the floor, almost a year after he had microfracture surgery on his left knee, and all that I kept thinking was: Good thing he signed his $71 million extension last year. I...

Wiz Insider: Hayes update and more

Just returned from Verizon Center where the Wizards practiced before getting on plane to Chicago for tomorrow night's game against the Bulls. The good news for Wiz fans is that guard Jarvis Hayes practiced and is feeling "fine" following last night's game. If you read my blog from this...

Raptors' Bosh Part of NBA's Latest Trend

The biggest news during a mostly drab free agency signing period came when Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade shocked the NBA world and opted to sign three-year extensions with their teams, rather than jump at the security of maximum five-year, $80 million extensions. James...

Wizards Insider, heading for Chicago

I was standing in the Wizards lockeroom getting ready to talk with Jarvis Hayes after last night's preseason opener when I got a serious case of de ja vu. Hayes had just looked very impressive in a 93-88 loss to the Raptors and showed no signs of limping on...

Wiz get it started tonight, kind of

Man, it's good to be back in the district after a week in Richmond for training camp. The Wizards get the preseason started tonight with their only exhibition game at Verizon Center. OK, so it's only preseason but I'm thrilled to actually see some real basketball. After watching a...
