John Wall returned to Washington's lineup almost two months ago, back in a January 12th win over the Hawks. Since then, the Wizards have shown some flashes of competence which have mostly been negated by baffling periods of completely inept basketball

John Wall vs Deron Williams is just about as good of a point guard matchup as is possible in the NBA right now. However, who wins tonight's game--and takes the lead in the season series between the Wizards and Nets--will probably be determined by what each team's non-point-guards do on the floor. Tonight's game will be decided in a battle of the benches/supporting starters, an area in which the Nets--boasting Brook Lopez, Joe Johnson, MarShon, C.J., among others--have a certain advantage in. Add in the fact that the Wizards are more than 20 games below .500 and Brooklyn should leave Barclays this evening...

In last summer’s NBA draft, the Washington Wizards used their number 32 overall pick to select Tomas Satoransky, a 6’7” point guard from the Czech Republic. At the time, the pick was somewhat of a head-scratcher. Satoransky was projected to be selected much lower in the second round and there were some noteworthy collegiate prospects still available, including Jae Crowder...
While I will probably never propose to a girl at a sporting event, some guys think it is the perfect place to the drop the question.
During a recent Brooklyn Nets game, one Nets fan got down on his knees to pop the question to his special someone and let's say that she was a little shocked:
Thankfully, she said yes and well, nothing says "Let's Get Married...
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Wizards, one of the few NBA teams who can actually call the Charlotte Bobcats a nemesis, did their bit to rectify that notion Saturday night, with Trevor Ariza scoring a season-high 26 points in a 104-87 victory.
The Wizards never trailed and shot 50 percent as they handed the league-worst Bobcats their 10th straight loss, most of which haven'...
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a post regarding a Foot Locker commercial starring James Harden and Kris Humphries called "Entourage".Well, the fine folks over at Foot Locker decided to release an alternate ending to that commercial which can be seen below:Huh, I wonder what Kris wanted to use the time machine for?

Deron Williams sensed the disappointment from the crowd, strange as it seemed given how well he played.
He gave the ball to the open man - just what a point guard is supposed to do.
''I thought they were going to boo me one time because I didn't shoot it,'' he said.
In one of the best 3-point shooting nights in NBA history, who wanted to see him pass?

After resigning with the Brooklyn Nets this offseason, Kris Humphries certainly expected to play a fairly large role this season. This hasn’t happened, as the team has turned to other options at power forward, such as Reggie Evans and Andray Blatche. Humphries has been in the news more...

The Brooklyn Nets entered this week in a slump before showing again how formidable they can be when Joe Johnson plays well. Strong performances from Johnson could be crucial as the Nets continue to vie for playoff position.
They'll look to avoid a fourth straight home loss Friday night when they meet the Washington Wizards, who could have a difficult time beating anyone without...
