Dee Brown Finds a Home

Former Wizard Dee Brown, who was released to clear a roster spot for Javaris Crittenton and Mike James, has landed in Phoenix. The Suns worked out a bunch of veteran point guards and decide that Brown was the guy. Good for Dee. He worked hard when he was here, treated everyone with respect and was just a really good guy to have around.

Here's the story:

(This has nothing to do with Dee finding a new home) But why is it that when the Wiz only give up 80 points they can't score at least 82?? It's crazy!

I suggest everyone watch the Caps and Ovie, who came back from 4 goals down to win 5-4 in overtime last night.

Ivan,

Ask Dee if he would right something for your blog and let us fans know what it is like to play with a winning team.

Thanks,

How long before EG "blows up" the team, or gets blown up himself for this fiasco of a roster? Is there a market for Jameson?

I think they're waiting - and they should - to see what Arenas has before making any major decisions about pulling the plug.

If he's just a shell of himself, they have to re-think the entire plan. If he's still a solid guard even if not the previous version, I think the smart move is to try and build around that still pretty good nucleus of Arenas/Butler/Jamison.

EG's failure to find a big body inside was his major error. That and a backup point guard/playmaker.

Their big men are just horrendous. ET can't play. Pecherov can't (likely) play. AB is too weak. Songaila not athletic enough. Jamison too soft.

They don't have one complete big man - not a stud mind you, just a solid player - on this roster.

I am still waiting for Larry Hughes to appear. Where is he? We need help!

How psyched is Dee Brown to go from being *potentially* behind Mike James in the depth chart to being behind STEVE NASH in the depth chart. Like they say, one door closes often a better door opens.

Good news! Merry Christmas, Dee!

Even though he isn't likely to see much if any PT in Phoenix, at least he won't be around the 3 ring circus that is the Wizards these days. His sanity will be saved from this mess.

The Suns have been trying to find a decent backup for Nash since he got there. Brown will be given a shot to earn minutes. What he does with the chance is up to him.

Dee Brown never knew how to play slow ball. Logically, with his size, he had to be fast and quick to be successful.

Translate that to the current Wizards team and how it compares to the NBA. Any logical analysis would tell you that this team as configured has to be fast and quick too, in order to be successful.

So, why does not ETaps realize that he needs to coach this Team accordingly?

Big Ups to Dee Brown. When he plays, he always does his best.

He has no illusions about what his best is. It is just so bad that he was not allowed to bring out the best of this Wizards Team.

I Pray, and I Sincerely hope, we don't have to keep waiting on somebody to bring the best out of this Wizards Team.
