Wizards Insider: July 8, 2007 - July 14, 2007

Wiz win!

The final horn sounded and Oleksiy Pecherov threw his hands in the air and shouted. Okay, it's only summer league and I'm sure some of the cynical readers of this blog will write in ripping the kid for being happy over a meaningless victory but it's obvious that the...

The Most Baffling Summer Signing

General managers generally lose their minds this time of year. By now, everyone is aware that the Orlando Magic grossly overpaid for Rashard Lewis in a move that will scrutinized for the duration of his contract.

Introducing D McGuire

If you saw the game between the summer Wiz and summer Pistons tonight you already know that the bronze and blue may have themselves a little something, something in second-round pick Dominic McGuire. He backed up his strong effort in yesterday's loss to Sacramento with another one tonight. The...
