Wizards Insider: June 24, 2007 - June 30, 2007

Now it gets interesting

The thing I keep reminding myself about the draft is that the Wizards will essentially will be working with two first rounders this summer: Nick Young and the man called "Pesh." Nobody in the VC is saying that Oleksiy Pecherov is going to be an all star this season...

Thumbs Up To The NBA Draft

Yesterday afternoon, I skipped all of the chatter surrounding the NBA draft and went to the movies. I saw that horror film, "1408." I hadn't heard about it before I showed up at the theater but it was only matinee showing at the time I arrived, so I decided to...

Nick Young is the pick

Ernie Grunfeld was beaming when he met with us a short while ago in the VC media room to discuss the selection of USC SG Nick Young with the 16th pick. Obviously, the Wizards had Young rated high after he worked out for them here back on June but...

Draft Night blog

Is Julian Wright going to fall to the Wizards? That's the buzz here in the press room at VC. So far, no real shocks though that proposed Seattle/Boston trade is interesting. Clearly new Seattle GM Sam Presti wanted Ray Allen out of there to get a clean slate. Makes...

The day is here (finally)

Well, pretty soon all of the talk, the speculation, the spinning and the endless, mindless talk about trades that will never happen will be over and we'll all know how the 2007 NBA draft played out. For the Wizards, it's looking pretty simple: barring a trade that pops up...

Time For Rhetoric To Be Replaced With Results

This week has certainly provided more roller-coaster excitement and more over-the-top conjecture than the NBA Finals. Remember that? You know, the San Antonio Spurs. . .they won their fourth title. . .Tim Duncan. . .Eva. . .ah, forget about it. Superstar talents are coming in (Greg Oden and Kevin Durant),...

Oden Has The Goods To Be A Bonafide Star

Okay, so I'm not going out on a limb here, but Greg Oden is really going to be a star. I'm not saying that because he's been a winner his whole career, only losing just 16 games his entire life; Or because respected NBA personnel executives like Donnie Walsh are...
