Wizards Insider: May 24, 2009 - May 30, 2009

A Time To Chill

I just finished my trek through four different time zones in four days, from Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago and back to Denver. So, I'm understandably exhausted and confused after waking up in Chicago on Friday, covering the NBA draft combine, writing a story, catching a flight to Denver and covering...

76ers to Hire Ex-Wizards Coach Jordan

Both the Philadelphia Daily News and the Associated Press are reporting that Eddie Jordan, fired in November as Wizards coach, will take over the 76ers. On first glance, it seems a good fit for a team which ended a first-round playoff loss against the Orlando Magic wondering if point guard...

Pre-draft Quotables Part II: DeRozan, Flynn, Lawson

I had a great time talking to DeRozan, who seemed more than open to joke about his hops and his famous, former AAU team backer, Master P. I didn't know he had so much personality. Flynn is slated to go later in the lottery, but the Wizards like him. Ty...

Pre-draft Quotables Part I: Evans, Harden

I decided to focus on the guards on Thursday, and I will spend some time with the big guys today. But here's what else Tyreke Evans and James Harden had to say. I'll come back with DeMar DeRozan, Jonny Flynn and even Maryland native Ty Lawson. Tyreke Evans, Memphis I'm...

Thoughts On Pre-Draft Camp, Cavaliers

If you happened to see my story on the first day of the pre-draft camp in Chicago, you're probably wondering why I wasn't able to inform you how the players looked. Well, reporters weren't allowed to view the workouts. And from what I could tell on ESPN -- the only...

Time Traveling

You can call me crazy or a bit too ambitious, but I find myself in my third different time zone in three days. I went from Denver to Los Angeles on Tuesday, then caught a red-eye flight after Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals last night (or this morning)...

BronSolo Facing Elimination

Not sure if you guys happened to catch LeBron James's interview after the Cleveland Cavaliers lost, 116-114, to the Orlando Magic last night. But I saw something that I've never seen before. James has lost playoff games and been on the verge of losing playoff series before, but the could-be...

Nuggets Applying Pressure on Kobe, Lakers

What else am I supposed to do? (Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via Getty Images) It would be easy to convince yourself that the Los Angeles Lakers should emerge victorious in the Western Conference Finals based on their 65-win season and the presence of the best closer in the game....

Cavs Searching For Magic Spell

LeBron, are you still growing or are you standing on your tippy-toes? (Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Getty Images) What does Mike Brown do now? That was the first question I asked when I watched the final seconds of Cleveland's 99-89 loss to the Orlando Magic last night. What...
