Wizards-Knicks game still on

The Wizards' game tonight at 8 against the Knicks at Verizon Center is still on, according to the team. But because of the snowstorm, the Wizards will allow ticket holders to exchange tickets for tonight's game for the Feb. 6 game against the Atlanta Hawks. The exchange plan, according to an e-mail from the Wizards:

--Patrons can take their unused tickets for the Wizards vs. New York game (1/30/10) to Verizon Center Box Office beginning on Monday, February 1, 2010 starting at 10 a.m. and turn in for a ticket to the Wizards vs. Atlanta game on Saturday, Feb.6 (no additional service charge will apply).

--Wizards planholders can turn in their unused tickets at the Verizon Center Box Office for the Wizards vs. Atlanta game on Saturday, Feb.6 or redeem their unused tickets for one of the pre-selected exchange games listed in their planholder online guide (season ticket holders will not be required to pay an exchange fee).

Any chance of exchanging the Wizzies team for the Hawks?

this game showed you everything you needed to know about the wiz, the starters full of big dollar contracts were getting smashed and the bench who liked simply being on the floor brought us back, trade aj, haywood and caron and lets never speak of this jumpshooting, no ball movement, no defense squad ever again

Funny thing...I saw Tawn make at least 5 great passes to set guys up but no one could finish. 5 potential assists from the "greedy" player wasted because Haywood gets stripped or Caron overdribbles or whatever. if I was him, I would rarely pass also.

But he did take 13 shots, missed 10, and only took 2 FT's.

Figure that out.

He's not a 'greedy' player, and never has been. That's just propaganda.

nice work Earl, by 31mins? Is Boyks possibly in the plans for next season? Why'd Foye play so little?

NY contributing, hopefully we'll see him again in another month?

Shame Mcgee didnt get a few minutes on Lopez who has a nice set of moves, exactly the type of experience MCgee could use on the floor. Oh well, who knows whats up

so jamison made five great passes last night huh, maybe he should play point? jamison is a gunner, call it greedy or not, he likes to shoot because he understands his value as a player is points, he's a talented scorer who positions himself well for rebounds aside from that he is death to a basketball team, he is a power forward who shoots jumpshots and forces up runners and tends to forget his has teammates when he touches the ball, dallas got it right by making him a sixth man, and he wanted out so he could put up bigger numbers instead of hitting 55% again, a career best, and we need not even discuss his defense

Posted by: bford1kb | January 30, 2010 6:09 PM | Report abuse

Jamison is a team player in terms of leadership and example, but clearly a shoot-first player. He's a scorer and decent rebounder but doesn't "make people around him better." Other than Blatche, the interior passing of this team is horrible. Jamison only passes when he can't get a shot off. I agree with those who think he's a great sixth man on a championship team.

How many players on the Wiz "make others better"? Mike Miller? Maybe.

How many PFs make teamates better? Certainly not Dirk, he is all about pts/boards, playing soft, and ignoring D.

But you know what? Somebody's got score and rebound! Would anybody rather see Haywood or Stevenson shooting more? Thanks but no thanks, AJ can take all those shots

I wonder why is Lebron James is in Kentucky, to watch John Wall play. There are no NBA franchises there; I am wonder if LB is considering signing with Jay Z Brooklyn Nets and watching Wall play to make a final decision. I am one of those people who have a conspiracy theory about the NBA Draft.

Posted by: dsquare | January 30, 2010 6:29 PM | Report abuse

I guess I should really start looking at GT games to get a good look at Favors, because we are not getting Wall. I really dislike L. James

Posted by: dsquare | January 30, 2010 6:33 PM | Report abuse

Greg Monroe, perchance?

Posted by: creativefunk | January 30, 2010 6:43 PM | Report abuse

Favors would be a nice consolation prize for any team, but he's a project in NBA terms. Most of his points are coming on finishes rather than post moves, so it's hard to project how he'd stack up in an NBA offense. It's even harder to project somebody like DeMarcus Cousins of Kentucky, because he gets so much help from others on that team. He's looking great this afternoon against Andrew Ogilvy, but who wouldn't when the defense has to worry about Patrick Patterson, John Wall, and Eric Bledsoe?

I don't see anybody out there with the offensive skill set of, say, Kevin Durant when he came into the league. They're even more athletic than Durant, but ultimately basketball is about skills.

That's why I suspect the impact players from next year's rook class will come from the guards -- Wes Johnson, or Evan Turner, or of course Wall.

Maybe this 'making others better' stuff is confusing the issue. A player like Mike Miller is a 'glue guy', somebody who settles the team down, makes sure they're in the correct positions, circulates the ball in a motion offense. A spot shooter rather than a scorer like Arenas. You wouldn't give Miller the assignment of averaging 20 points a night, nor does he want it. Most teams in the NBA have designated anchors in terms of scoring, and those are the guys they rely on for productivity night in and night out. Coaches nag them to take shots even when they're not falling, in hopes that they'll get hot and ignite a run.

That's a word you hear a lot when coaches and GMs talk about Jamison: productive. He's not the tallest, strongest, quickest, or most skilled forward out there, and he doesn't have the most complete repertoire. Still, he shows up every night and over the course of a season, is right there in the neighborhood of that all-important 'twenty and ten'. You're right when you say he needs to play alongside a better scorer, because he doesn't really create his own opportunities. But it's wrong to disparage him for being selfish or greedy when he's essentially doing what the team wants him to.

If you want a defensive ace at that spot, sit Jamison and put one in.

Understood but what Wes & Evan bring to the table is easer to get from some other existing young player or players coming in from the draft. Favors,is a project but there is something that he has, as far as his mind set, that translate that he will be successful. As oppose to, let’s say, Kwame Brown. Physically and athletically you can’t compare. Words of wisdom (I think it was from Rick Pittino)
"Yea, Well I will go and pick a 6’10 dominate, athletic, post player from the big man tree" meaning they are rare. When he was up in Boston and the reporter ask him why they don’t get enough rebounds and post points.
We have to rebuild anyway, him and McGee can grow together.

Obviously you couldn't figure it out, so I'll enlighten you.

It's another night for MeTawn of taking J's and not going to the FT line (e.g. beging aggressive).

Just like tonight.

26 shots....3 FT shots.
