Wizards Insider: September 30, 2007 - October 6, 2007

Scrimmage ends camp

The Wizards put an end to a week of training camp with a scrimmage at VCU this evening. Coach Eddie Jordan missed the scrimmage to attend the funeral of a family member while Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison were held out so this one felt like Wizards light. A...

Friday update

Well, training camp is almost over and I can't wait to hop onto I-95 after tomorrow evening's scrimmage and head home. A few notes: -The scrimmage is at 5 p.m. at the Siegel Center on the campus of VCU. If you come down, you'll have no problem finding the...

The Decline In Great NBA Nicknames

I've been meaning to write about this for a few days, but I've been caught up with too much New York Knicks stuff lately. This is a silly thought, but one I still want want to share. When I was in Boston last weekend, Celtics Coach Doc Rivers said he...

Day 3 in Richmond

Haven't had much of a chance to get out and see Richmond but last night I poked my head into the rec center here on the campus of VCU and got in a game of pick-up basketball (the college kids had me panting like my dog after a long...

Day 2 in the books

One of the most interesting things I spotted during today's only practice was Eddie's use of Oleksiy Pecherov and Andray Blatche together in the front court. I say interesting because it's not hard to imagine the 7-foot-0 Pesh and 6-foot-11 Blatche as interchangable parts down the road. They are...

Richmond Day 2

There is nothing new to report about the status of center Etan Thomas, who was not cleared to come to camp after a routine physical revealed a cardiac irregularity. As I wrote today, the situation is potentially career threatening but we really won't know more until the results of...

How The Wizards Affected The Knicks

Where would Isiah Thomas and the New York Knicks be today if not for the Washington Wizards? It's the first question that came to mind after I finished writing about the sexual harassment verdict that worked out in favor of former Knicks executive Anucha Browne Sanders to the tune of...

The team just released a statement regarding the status of center Etan Thomas, who is not with the team today as training camp opens in Richmond. It reads: Washington Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld announced today that during a routine team physical, Wizards center Etan Thomas had a cardiac test...

Live from Richmond

Well, I just pulled into Richmond for the opening day of Wiz training camp and am sitting outside of the gym here at VCU's Siegel Center. Every player is here except for center Etan Thomas, who was excused from yesterday's media day for "personal reasons." I'm hearing today that...

Knicks Up To Old Tricks

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. - New York Knicks forward Malik Rose was asked how he was going to be able to focus on this season with so many distractions surrounding the team - especially the embarrassingly awful sexual harassment case against Madison Square Garden and Coach Isiah Thomas. Rose smiled and said,...

Going camping

The rest of the basketball world might be overlooking the Wizards in what should be a much improved Eastern Conference but the Wizards players seem to feel that they are going to pick right up where they left off before injuries struck last season. "I'm not scared of anyone,"...
