It feels good to wake up this morning and see that the Bobcats lost to the Clippers. I want us to get within 5 games before our 3 game stretch were we play them twice in 3 days.

Really nice to see a team with speed, hustle, and enthusiasm. Wish we could have had this team the entire year. Hopefully Howard will not miss many games.

First, the video is not viewable. Says it's a "private video"

Second, nice to see a Wizards team playing this way. Question is, will it last?

Wonder when anyone is going to realize that Jamison was the real clubhouse cancer. Treating younger players like Jordan did to Kwame, playing selfish basketball, then turning on the charm when the media had its camera on. Face it, Jamison was a mediocre player with a superstars ego and did nothing for this team (especially on defense).

Jamison is a nice role player.

"Thank you Gilbert Arenas."

Lol, no kidding.

I hope Howard is ok and it's just a sprain, but I have bead knees myself and I am guessing cartlidge the way he fell.

Just keep playing hard guys, you have a chance to win your next 5 games. After that it's nothing but playoff teams so we'll see.

HATIN' on HAYWOOD:

Just a quick note to the BRENDA HAYWOOD post regulars on this blog. What do you think of MAVARICK HAYWOOD after his first four in DALLAS?

That was a very entertaining game...4 in a row now. Last week I was upset that I still had games remaining on my plan. Now I wish I'd backloaded it more.

It seemed like they brought the energy and hustle of a college game and combined it with their freakish atheltisism. I hope they can keep up the energy!

"What do you think of MAVARICK HAYWOOD after his first four in DALLAS?"

He is doing quite well.

"Haywood is a beast in there," Nowitzki said. "He gets every rebound and alters shots. He is always in there clogging stuff up. When we made the trade, we didn't know Damp was going to be hurt, so that really is a life-saver now."

Brendan had twenty rebounds last night?
Cuban's well-oiled bank vault door is swinging wide open for him this summer. My guess? $45-55 mil.

Not only are Blatche and McGee showing what more playing time does for your game, but it is also showing in Dallas for Brendan what real playing time does for your game.

"New Maverick Brendan Haywood(notes) not only contributed 13 points and 20 rebounds, but he made Pacer center Roy Hibbert(notes) look like a kid out there."

Haywood played the most minutes 33:21 for Dallas, shot 50% from the floor, 7-12 from the line, and he was a +14.

Seems like to me players get better with more playing and not with less playing time as is the Wizard's methodology.

You know, to beat a dead horse, I have been saying all season that we needed to move Jamison to the three so that Haywood, Blatche, and McGee got the most playing time at the 5 and the 4 and controlled the paint play better for us. Two bigs in the game mostly at all times.

Some of you understood that logic but apparently Flip never believed in it. I always got shot down by Kalo_rama for he felt that McGee and Blatche had not earned the right to be given such prominent roles in our gameplan. And we know how he feels about BH.

But the evidence since the trades seem to indicate that my assertions so far had some damn good merit.
