of course I want to win, but it makes me feel good seeing interviews like this one because it shows we have a knuckle-head free squad. very good ambassadors of DC sports.

i'M GLAD THESE GUYUS ARE HOMIES.
but watch out, moron88 will come in to hate on them all.

Idot88 called the Wiz win last night a fluke.

I wish to Allah, moron88 gets run over by a bus.

Caron saying that he can hopefully retire here is the greatest news possible. Management needs to make sure that happens, he is the rock of the squad.

Caron can retire here if he keeps producing. Otherwise, he's an expendable chess piece.

As the cliche goes, "it's business, nothing personal."

I'd love to see CB retire here AS A GUARD.

Now for the bad....
For all of the good that CB did the other night, CJ Miles (who??) had 16 points in 18 minutes primarily while CB was in the game. Wilson Chandler was 8-12 against him. Jefferson dropped 32 on him. Same old story. He's constantly running out trying to cover his man who happens to be wide open an spotting up.

If CB is the heart and soul of this team, we'll never be any good defensively. Teams follow their leaders and our leader doesn't play good defense.

A simple solution: Start McGee and trust him to guard the post rather than doubling down every possession. 82games and other sites have stats that prove that we're getting killed in the paint.

Solution#2: Bring in AJ off the bench or move him to sf. He's the weak link defensively down low.

I'm sure people may see this comment and say that I'm being hyprocritical about Gil.

"Teams follow their leaders and our leader doesn't play good defense."

At least Gil outplayed his counterpart. Even if he was giving up 20 a game, he was scoring 28. The difference in PER proves it.

It's about wins and losses and playoff success, not individual scoring competitions.
