Wizards Insider Archive: JaVale McGee

Another wild night in Philadelphia for Wizards

I don't think I can come to Philadelphia without something crazy happening anymore. I missed the Wizards' game at Wells Fargo Center in Jan. 5, which was only amusing in that it added another double-digit road loss to the ledger. Is this why you're mad? (AP Photo/Matt Slocum) But the...

Wizards could be quiet at trade deadline

The Wizards may not be silent at the trade deadline, but they aren't aggressively looking to make deals, based on some conversations that I've had with front office executives and agents. An Eastern Conference general manager who recently spoke with the Wizards said the team didn't appear open to making...

Wizards react to JaVale McGee in dunk contest

JaVale McGee dunked three balls at one time and two balls on two baskets, but even those feats weren't enough to lift the Wizards center to victory in the NBA dunk contest on Saturday night at Staples Center. Clippers rookie Blake Griffin instead claimed the first-place trophy. His winning dunk...

JaVale McGee never had a shot against Blake Griffin, but still put on a show

And a one, and a two. (AP Photo/Mark Ralston) Blake Griffin certainly had the most choir-singing, scene-stealing, crowd-screaming, show-stopping, car-hopping dunk of the night. But overall, he was probably the third-best dunker in Staples Center on Saturday. Griffin was the most entertaining -- which is what the dunk contest...

JaVale McGee wants to "represent for the big guys"

Your Browser DoesNot Support IFrames. It might not seem like it, given the presence of Blake Griffin and the typical disadvantages of tall competitors, but Saturday's Slam Dunk contest may be the perfect convergence for JaVale McGee to burst on the national scene. No other place will allow McGee to...

Short-handed Wizards go into all-star break with a whimper

I don't need this now. (AP Photo/ Reinhold Matay) The concern for the Wizards entering their last game before the all-star break was not necessarily if they would be able to defeat the Orlando Magic; it really was if they were going to have enough offense to keep the...
