ORLANDO, Fla. — During Wednesday night's game between the Sacramento and Washington, Kings center DeMarcus Cousins threw a laser of a cross-court pass — right to Wizards guard John Wall. For a moment, it was as if the pair forgot that they were no longer teammates at Kentucky. But despite ...

When the Detroit Pistons were at their best in the Eastern Conference a few years, they brought something to the All-Star game that usually didn’t exist. Defense. It was the trademark of the Ben Wallace led teams. In fact, when the Eastern Conference was trailing by 21pts a few years ago, Rip Hamilton, Chauncey Billups, Big Ben and Rasheed went onto the court at the same...
The first half of the season hasn’t been the best for Washington Wizards guard John Wall. Washington is 7-26 and next to last in the Eastern Conference standings. When the rosters were drafted for last night’s BBVA Rising Stars Challenge 11 players were selected before Wall, who appeared to view it as a [...]
Tonight the NBA will feature the Rising Star Challenge formerly known as the Rookie-Sophomore challenge. This year’s format won’t match up the rookies against the second year players instead it will be a mix of rookies and sophomores on each team. The twist is that Shaq and Charles Barkley drafted the teams last week, and one of those players is unhappy where he...
The team-produced Wizards Magazine show did a seven-minute segment on John Wall’s living quarters, which he evidently calls “The Launching Pad.” The 90-second promo is here, and it includes Wall rifling through his 19,000 t-shirts and displaying a pair of “I Love DC” shirts. That’s good propaganda.

So bust out the fireworks and pop some champagne...
