Milwaukee has become a trendy city for the Wizards this season. Roger Mason, Jr can’t seem to catch a break there and the Wizards defense doesn’t seem to show up until the third quarter.

Wittman sent JaVale McGee, Nick Young and Trevor Booker to the time out corner, and the Wizards responded with one of their more successful third quarter outings, cutting the deficit to three.
While Young returned to the floor briefly before Wittman changed his mind again, McGee didn’...

The Wizards' JaVale McGee will never get confused for a Rhodes Scholar, but the guy is as freaky athletic as they come.

He was in Kareem Abdul Jabbar skyhook territory, but instead of pulling...

JaVale McGee and his antics are a favorite of this blog. But this time he makes an appearance for something good.

With Randy Wittman’s punishment still hovering over #TeamCinammon - Nick Young and JaVale McGee, it was up to John Wall pick up the pieces offensively for the Wizards.

The Wizards were M.I.A. from this weekend’s All-star festivities. Aside from John Wall, no Wizards were invited to participate in any of the weekend events.
I’m sure Andray Blatche went to an All-Star party or two. I kid.
There was no Nick ‘Swaggy P’ Young in the 3 point contest, even though he’s tailored made for the contest. There was no JaVale ‘Pierre’ McGee in...
