Wizards Insider: March 23, 2008 - March 29, 2008

Tough Juice Gets It Done (Songaila too)

My favorite Caron Butler dunk is still the one he threw down over Yao Ming last season because well, the guy is 7-7. Another was the one he pounded on Alonzo Mourning's head in Miami last year and of course, who can forget the one he hammered on Andris...

Wizards at Kings

After taking yesterday off and going through shootaround this morning, the Wizards should be fresh and ready to go tonight against Kings squad that is playing out the string but nonetheless has the ability to really hurt you on a given night. Consider that while the Kings have lost...

Wiz going global

I wrote about it a couple of weeks back when the word slipped out but today, the NBA confirmed and provided some details on the European tour the Wizards will make next October during the pre-season. They will play the Hornets in Berlin and Barcelona (now that's a road...

KG For MVP? Too Close To Call

Was in Boston last night to hear Kevin Garnett get serenaded with chants of "M-V-P! M-V-P!" throughout the second half of the Boston Celtics' 117-97 win against Phoenix last night. I heard that it was only the second time all season that it had happened at TD Banknorth Garden. You...

Wiz at Sonics (one last time?)

Here's hoping that this isn't my last NBA-related trip to this great city. I'm a big Seattle fan. All hands on deck for the Wizards tonight (except for Gilbert Arenas and Etan Thomas of course) while the SuperSonics will again be without former Maryland F Chris Wilcox (right pinkie...

Ugly in Portland

The Wizards can't blame tired legs because Portland played and lost Monday night at Seattle yet managed to play with a level of energy the men in blue just couldn't match. All you really need to know about Washington's 102-82 loss at the Rose Garden tonight is that two...

Wiz at Portland, Arenas opens up

Rookie G Nick Young, who has missed two straight games with a right thigh bruise - an injury he suffered in the win over Cleveland - went through shootaround this morning and will be a game-time decision. Basically, Nick is trying to fight through some stiffness and soreness in...

Who Is COTY? To The West, To The West

We just ran down the top candidates for Coach of the Year in the East. Here are the ones in the West: RICK ADELMAN, Houston Rockets: Twenty-two in a row! Adelman led his team to the second-longest winning streak in NBA history and propelled the Rockets from 10th to the...

Who Is Coach Of The Year? The East Coast Debate

After seeing Rick Adelman win his 800th career game and the Philadelphia 76ers go on a 19-0 run to defeat the Boston Celtics last night - in Boston, no less - I had to stop and ask myself, who is the Coach of the Year this season? It's a tough...

Monday update

The Wizards did not practice today and will fly to Portland this afternoon for tomorrow night's game against the Blazers. The contest opens a five-game trip that includes stops at Seattle, Sacramento, LA for the Lakers and concludes in Salt Lake City next Monday night. Can't speak for the...

'Sheed Was [Expletive] Mad, But Kept His [Expletive] Cool Afterward

You may have missed out on the Return of Gilbert yesterday at Verizon Center, but at least there was the Tantrum of Rasheed. In case you missed it: Early in the fourth quarter of the Washington Wizards' 95-83 win last night, Detroit Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace started roughhousing Andray Blatche....

Arenas update

I spoke with Gilbert Arenas not long after he stormed out of the locker room after being told by team medical staff that he couldn't play tonight. He was still frustrated but backed off of what he said when he walked out ("Ya'll don't have to write anymore. I'm...

Arenas out

Gilbert Arenas wanted to play tonight but the medical staff would not clear him. Arenas went through shootaround this morning and was preparing himself to play all day long and was obviously angry at the decision. When I approached him, he said something that I can't repeat hear but...

Arenas back tonight?

Gilbert Arenas participated in shootaround this morning and will meet with doctors before tonight's game against Detroit to determine whether he can be cleared to play. Arenas has been practicing and lately, he's really picked up the level of his activity. In Orlando Wednesday night, he said expected to...
