Randy Foye is out, Alonzo Gee is gone

Morning brew

The Wizards suffered two more losses yesterday, although they haven't played a game since Saturday. Randy Foye is likely done for the season with an injured left wrist, and Alonzo Gee left the team to sign with the San Antonio Spurs.

A source told Michael Lee that the team plans to replace Gee with Cartier Martin of the D-League's Iowa Energy.

Bullets Forever's Mike Prada sees Gee leaving as an example of a larger problem within the front office and a sign that the entire culture there really needs to change.

Meanwhile, Truth About It's Kyle Weidie analyzes a few recent quotes from Wizards players, including Nick Young saying: "We ain't trying to be like a New Jersey Net."

Weidie concludes:

... being a Washington Wizard and saying that you're not trying to be a like a New Jersey Net is like saying you're not trying to trade in one type of life-threatening cancer for another. Ain't no one trying to be like either.

Finally, the New York Post's Pete Vescey takes yet another slap at Gilbert Arenas.

Around the league ...

The Miami Heat's Dorell Wright became the latest pro athlete to apologize for an explicit picture of himself surfacing on the Internet.

There were 5 games last night. Highlights are below, courtesy of NBA.com.

"I am betting that Ted Leonsis would not suffer a self-centered cancer on his team for too long atall.

If Gilbert is truly back next year, we will know all too well and by the Allstar break whether or not he is a self-centered cancer.

I am betting he isn't, I think the Judge did too."

I'm hoping too LARRY, not betting. More wait and see. We certainly don't need a self-centered cancer on the team. That's why I said "used to call that Cancer." emphasis on the "USED TO."

If that young man hasn't begun to adapt his style by now God help him. He'll never learn.

"So in other words, why win now, when it will only jeopordize the value of the pick. There is simply no value in winning at the moment."

We said the same thing last year and one more win would have gotten us the Clipper's lottery balls and first pick in the draft. Also how do you develop young players and teach them how to win in clutch situations without teaching them to win. Steve and Phil said losing seasons make players develop bad habits and a losing culture in the locker room? Also what about the kid seeing his first wizards game looking for a win, the wizards are professionals and won't throw away games on purpose, except for game 82 of the regular season.

They use to talk about AI the same way in Philly every year and he still hasn't changed?

Well, I'm giving GIL the benefit of the doubt, and keeping my fingers crossed at the samer time.

If Gil can adapt to age in the second half of his career he can be the next Jason Kidd, Steve Nash or Chauncey Billups but those guys didn't have three knee surgeries in two years either.

"Bullets Forever's Mike Prada sees Gee leaving as an example of a larger problem within the front office and a sign that the entire culture there really needs to change." I couldn't agree more, I was hoping we'd offer him a min contract for next year because I figured he'd surely take it and that he was well worth it, but guess what, a better organization got him, is anyone surprised?

I keep hearing salary cap. Does Ernie think that a superstar is going to sign with the Wizards?
