Wizards Insider: January 6, 2008 - January 12, 2008

Big one

The Wizards haven't beaten a team with a winning record since Dec. 1 when they topped Toronto at the VC. Think about that for a minute. It sort of tells you how big this game is tonight against the Celtics, who have won 10 straight on the road including...

Better Without All-Stars?

Do the Rockets really need Tracy McGrady? Do the Wizards really need Gilbert Arenas? Do teams even need their stars anymore? I thought I'd ponder those questions after I saw the Houston Rockets beat the New York Knicks to improve to 6-2 in their past eight games without McGrady. The...

Thursday update

Not a whole lot to update from today's practice. Everyone participated with the exception of forward Darius Songaila, who was excused to handle a "dental situation" in the words of Eddie Jordan. Songaila was expected to fly with the team to Atlanta and be available for tomorrow night's game...

Catching Up With Kevin Durant w/Sonics Side Dishes

For the second time in the past two years, Kevin Durant stepped into the Verizon Center hoping that the Washington Wizards, his hometown team, would lose. He didn't have much luck on Sunday, as the rookie and his Seattle SuperSonics were on the receiving end of a 22-point beatdown. But...
