Morning Buzz

Yesterday's most interesting news from Richmond was the fact that Gilbert Arenas sat out scrimmages for two days, getting his left hand examined after jamming his middle finger before training camp. Michael Lee also said he moved gingerly during sprints. Truth About It asks: "Arenas Up to His Old Tricks?". Truth About it also offers some fashion commentary.

Continuing on the lighter side, Gilbert also engaged Randy Foye in a three-pointer contest after practice.

Lee and the Washington Times' Mike Jones note that Mike James should not be overlooked in the position battles.

Lastly, Washington Wizards individual regular season tickets are now on sale. And they are offering a special rate for one week only.

Elsewhere in the league, Michael Wilbon writes about the looming possibility of replacement referees during the regular season. In a preseason game last night in Salt Lake City, the Denver Nuggets tried to fool the replacement refs with a bit of trickery.

Delonte West (Eleanor Roosevelt), finally showed up at Cavaliers training camp after two unexcused absences.

And further out West, it appears that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's work with Andrew Bynum -- and possibly the Lakers -- will be scaled back this season.

Did West bring his guitar?

Mike,

Are you on the Wizards payroll or do you work on commission? I’ve never seen an advertisement within a report before!

Mike,

Could you imagine Woodward and Bernstein in the middle of an article about Watergate writing… for a limited time you can buy your autographed Richard Nixon t-shirts?

This country is doomed?

The so-called "ad" was from an official press release sent out by the Wizards.

Does it really affect anything that the message was passed on?

....Especially with people, perhaps, looking to save some money on tickets in this economy?

In today's world NO! There use to be something called reporter's integrity. It was the only way the reporter didn't seemed biased.

So, a blog devoted specifically to the Washington basketball team that's read almost exclusively by that team's fans notes that tickets to the team's games are on sale . . . and that's somehow indication of corruption and dirty dealing?

Good lord, pull the f&$%ing stick out, already.

(And that's not even mentioning the fact that, if you'd actually read the entire thing before spouting off you'd have noticed that Michael Lee didn't even write this entry.)

Reporter's integrity? It's a quick morning links post that wasn't even written by Michael Lee. Calm down.

discount tickets???? Sweet mother of Shaq!!!! I am certainly glad I got the message.

Mike,

I owe you an apology; I didn’t look at who made the post.

Thanks for pointing that out. It was directed more towards the Washington Post than any one reporter.

HA! Not unless "The Washington Post" is going by the name "Mike" these days it wasn't.

yo 78 you need to relax perhaps the writer felt people on wizards insider might be interested in buying tickets or even knowing they're cheaper right now seeing as how the average fan reading this probably actually likes basketball and the squad unlike yourself and dcman

So because WIZARDS FANS are given a heads-up about WIZARDS DISCOUNTED TICKETS on a WIZARDS BLOG...the world is about to doomed? I'm starting to see 78 and 88 as entertainment and can't wait for the pessimistic low self-esteem child 98 to start coming around.
