Wizards Insider: December 2, 2007 - December 8, 2007

Wiz and Suns

Not much to update hoop wise as we get ready for Wizards/Suns here at VC tonight but I did catch Gilbert Arenas briefly in the lockeroom befor the game and the experience was, well, entertaining. Gilbert put some time in on a bike and had some fun with rookie...

Mavericks Need To Get Kidd

Sitting on my couch, watching the Dallas Mavericks' 122-109 loss to the Denver Nuggets on TNT last night, I realized two things. One, the Mavericks won't win a championship as currently constructed. And two, Dallas really, really needs to get Jason Kidd. Kidd has not asked for a trade (yet)....

Hot Suns next

I love the way my colleague, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic, began his game story from last night's Phoenix at Toronto game: "The last time that Suns point guard Steve Nash created offense like this, it began a run in which they won 27 of 29 games." It...

LeBron officially out

LeBron James and Larry Hughes were out on the Verizon Center floor getting some shots up a little while ago but both are out for tonight's game against the Wizards. It will be the fourth straight game missed by James (sprained left index finger) while Hughes has been out...

Varejao Gets His Dinheiro (Money), Wants More

Depending on whom you ask, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry either beat the stuffing out of Anderson Varejao and his agent Dan Fegan, or Varejao and Fegan suckered the Cavaliers into going way over the salary cap. No matter which side you choose, Varejao is a member of the...

Touching moment at Verizon Center today

I've been doing this sports reporter thing now for a decade. Other than a brief, post-college stint as a tutor/mentor in the Mpls. public school system and a night gig as a bartender, I've pretty much covered games, written stories and generally been around sports for the last 10...

Philadelphia Dethrones King

The Philadelphia 76ers fired team president Billy King today. They have hired New Jersey Nets general manager Ed Stefanski. Other than the team plucking somebody from a division rival, it might not seem like a strange move given the 76ers' 5-12 start. But the timing of this move is beyond...

Spinning (Yarn) With The Pearl

The best part of the Washington Wizards' long delay in retiring Earl Monroe's number was that it allowed a new generation of basketball fans - myself included - to put his career in proper perspective. I won't front. I'm way too young to have seen the man play. I was...
