Found October 31, 2012 on Mr. Irrelevant:
John Wall, Nene and Kevin Seraphin are supposed to return sometime soon, and it was just one game, but here are eight reasons the 2012-13 Wizards are already such a sad, sad group: 1. The starting lineup: A.J. Price, Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza, Trevor Booker and Emeka Okafor. Woof. 2. The bench lineup: Jannero Pargo, Jordan Crawford, Martell Webster, Chris Singleton and Jan Vesely. Oof. 3. Crawford led all Wizards scorers with 11 points (on 13 shots). 4. Crawford and Price were a combined 2-15 from three (neither has a career percentage above 30.7). Suggested 2012-13 Wiz motto: Jackin’ it! 5. Beal’s debut was not good. 6. Anderson Varejoa pulled down a career-high 23 boards, and the Wizards were outrebounded by 15. 7. The lone bright spot was 11th man Earl Barron, whom I’ve never heard of. 8. They lost by 10 to Cleveland, which was the third-worst NBA team last year.

Game Recap: Washington vs Cleveland

Basketball is back! While people prepared to watch Miami and Boston on TNT, The Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards took center-stage. The result was Cleveland defeating Washington in a 94-84 final, and I must say both teams looked decent. Cleveland was active on the boards, and when they needed him most, Kyrie Irving stepped up. Washington on the other hand, looked very...

Cleveland Cavaliers Welcome Old Friends Washington Wizards For Season Opener

I love opening day of any sport. I’ve discussed this point ad nauseam, but there’s nothing like that feeling of the unknown. Staring at a blank canvas, and yeah, you’re limited to the colors in your palette, but the possibilities are endless. The season could be anything. Basketball, of course, is a bit of a different animal though. In baseball, you have a 162 game marathon...

Six Questions From Opening Night

Are the Lakers in trouble? Jacob Noble No, the Lakers are not in trouble.  They will make the playoffs but their playoff success is in question with the fact, they have not won a single game in 11 tries.  Even great teams who are trying to get comfortable with each other will win an ugly game or two.  Mike Brown is the one in trouble in this situation.  He appears...
