First of all, Who is Kevin Seraphin? Where did he come from? Both are legitimate questions, as he’s only played sparingly for a Washington Wizards team that’s gone 37-103 since his arrival. Although Seraphin, a native of French Guiana (South America, borders with Brazil), has been a Wizard for the duration of his young NBA career, he was actually handed a Chicago Bulls cap upon being selected 17th overall, between Luke Babbitt and Eric Bledsoe, in June of 2010. Content with their rotation at the center position and looking to clear cap space (remember, this was the summer of 2010), the Bulls quickly dealt Seraphin, along with Kirk Hinrich, to Washington in exchange for a second-round pick. At the time, Hinrich was owed about $17 million over two years. While Hinrich had been a quality role player known for his scrappy defense and outside shooting, his services were probably a tad overpriced at $8.5 million a season. Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld, in search of some i...

Trevor Booker first fell victim to plantar fasciitis and put pressure on the rest of the team to pick up the slack. Almost like a virus, Nene dropped to the same injury just days later. With Andray Blatche sidelined to improve his conditioning, the Wizards were left without a starting center.
This provided Kevin Seraphin with his spotlight sooner than most had expected.
Kevin Seraphin had a career night for Washington while taking advantage of Dwight Howard's absence from Orlando's lineup.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Kevin Seraphin took advantage of Dwight Howard's absence from Orlando's lineup, getting career highs of 24 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Washington Wizards to a 93-85 victory over the Magic on Tuesday night.
Jordan Crawford scored 21 points, John Wall had 15 and Cartier Martin and James Singleton -- both on 10-day contracts with the Wizards -- added...
As the last week unwound, it was a common occurrence for fans to see Wizards players strewn left and right, unable to move from sheer exhaustion. With nearly every forward getting injured, Washington started working with an incredibly limiting bench.
“It’s tough because we have Book and Nene, who’ve both got more than 10 point per game average,” Kevin Seraphin said. “So...
Through the transition from March to April, John Wall’s production had dropped off. It was not terrible, but the usual 15-20 points per game was disappearing. A 14-point ceiling seemed to emerge.
Randy Wittman was quick to point things out.
“He needs to take a step back and simplify things. He’s trying to do too much too fast right now. Sometimes it’s easier to take a step...

Journeyman forward James Singleton has been a Clipper and a Wizard. In other words, he knows what it’s like to lose basketball games. When made aware of Charlotte’s abysmal record, even he was taken aback.
“I looked at the board and saw 7-47 and I was like, ‘Errrr,’” said Singleton, via The Washington Post.

John Wall or Evan Turner, Kevin Durant or Greg Oden, Derrick Rose or Michael Beasley. Normally there is at least a semblance of a debate regarding who should be the number one overall pick in the NBA draft. This year there is no debate, anyone who knows anything about basketball is certain without a shadow of a doubt that Anthony Davis will be the first player selected in the draft...
For those wondering whether or not the Wizards will try to tank the rest of the season for a higher draft pick, wonder no more.
The Wizards pretty much summed up how they felt about that idea last night after they manhandled the Charlotte Bobcats by nearly 30 points and improved to 3-0 in their season series against the NBA’s worst team.
In a not-so-marquee game featuring the...
The Wizards played the Orlando Magic tonight and they finally did what they have wanted to do all season, the beat Orlando. The Wizrds have had a tough time facing the Magic this season. Losing all three of their first three meetings with the Magic, the Wizards knew it was going to have to happen tonight or wait until next season to get a win over the Magic. The Magic came out and...

1: The Celtics are back
A month ago, the Boston Celtics were considered a decent team that was going to float along the middle of the Eastern Conference pack and maybe take a playoff series before bowing out. Ten days ago, they became that "dangerous' team that you probably...
