Wizards Insider: January 7, 2007 - January 13, 2007

More weather no Wiz for IC

The good news is that I won't be stuck in Oklahoma City the way I was stranded in Denver for a week. The bad news is that I never made it to Oky - my connection from St. Louis never got off the ground so I headed straight to...

Webber Isn't The Missing Piece

So, Chris Webber is done in Philadelphia. The 76ers officially bought him out yesterday and about a handful of teams, including his hometown Detroit Pistons, the Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat and possibly the Orlando Magic are reportedly clamoring for his services. The Pistons are said to...

Trading Steve Blake is Costly

Steve Blake earns a little more than $1 million this season. But the former Wizard and Maryland standout is clearly worth more than Steve Nash. Huh? You ask. How could a backup point guard with career averages of six points, three assists and 39 percent shooting be worth as much...

Winning the right way

Larry Brown became known for repeatedly urging that his teams play "the right way." Gilbert Arenas and the Wizards did that last night against the Chicago Bulls and the result was a 113-103 victory that extended Washington's home winning streak to seven games. Here's what I mean by "the...

No. 24 is No. 1

Okay, now it makes sense. We've been racking our brains for almost eight months trying to figure out why Kobe Bryant switched jerseys from No. 8 to No. 24. There was speculation over the throwback KB8 shoe that Adidas was about to release, which infuriated Bryant, now a Nike endorser....

Gotta Love 'Sheed

Drove up to Philadelphia yesterday to rap with a few of the Detroit Pistons for a couple of stories I'm working on and I thought I had just stepped into a major controversy. During the pre-game introductions, Jason Maxiell was announced as the starter instead of Rasheed Wallace, who got...

The Inactive All-Stars

Injuries are part of the game. You can't avoid them - most of the time - and teams just have to suck it up and keep playing, regardless. That doesn't make it any easier to stomach, especially for the Milwaukee Bucks, who lost Michael Redd, their franchise player -- okay,...

DeChanges With DeShawn

First, the hair. Now, the hand. It seems like every month, Wizards guard DeShawn Stevenson is changing something. Stevenson said he is done waving his right hand over his face after jumpers - and it has nothing to do with teammate Etan Thomas, his former brother in dreadlocks, informing him...

Day Game in Toronto

First of all, can there be any question about this global warming thing? It's January, I'm in Toronto and I had to rip my coat off on my short walk over to the arena for today's game because it's so warm outside. I hear folks back in DC were...
