Just when the Charlotte Bobcats thought it was safe to claim the NBA's worst record ever, the Washington Wizards rise up, and attempt to lay claim to the thrown. Here is the latest update for the NBA's worst teams, NBAwful 2012-13, Vol. II.Washington Wizards: Breaking news!! The Wizards won a game! The Wizards beat the Trailblazers Wednesday night to break into the win column for the first time this season. With a 1-12 record, the Wizards on pace to have (gasp) (maybe) six wins this season. Yo, Charlotte better look out!Toronto Raptors: Once again, NBA commissioner David Stern's attempt at putting a team in Oh, Canada is falling flat on it's face. The Raptors are 3-13, and losers of six straight. "Yo, I'm DeMarcus. Whatev, bro." Cleveland Cavaliers: Not sure how I feel about this. Kyrie Irving is missing time due to a fractured finger. Other than Irving, they don't have a lot of stellar help in the lineup. Even with Irving, they're not a good team. The Cavs are 3-12, and losers of four straight.Bringing up the rear of this NBAwful update is New Orleans and Sacramento.The Hornets are 4-10. They could possibly improve once Anthony Davis returns from his ankle injury.The Kings are also 4-10. This is a young team and they need someone to step up and be a leader. DeMarcus Cousins disqualifies himself with this "Yeah, whatever" profile mug. (Via his Yahoo! profile.)

Wednesday Wizards Report Sad, but it has already come down to looking at the 2013 lottery for Wizards fans Losing is never fun no matter how you look at it. Losing leaves a bitter taste in your mouth and after 12 straight losses to open the season, our mouths as Wizards fans have quite a disgusting taste in them. And with no return date set for John Wall and tough games against...
After their worst start in history, the Washington Wizards became a national punch line. On TNT, Charles Barkley compared them with the Washington Generals, and a local newspaper had photos of fans wearing paper bags over their heads at Monday's 26-point loss to San Antonio.
The jokes can stop -- at least for now.
Washington earned its first victory after starting the season...
The Washington Wizards earned their first victory after starting the season with 12 straight losses, getting 19 points from Jordan Crawford in an 84-82 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.
Washington survived a scoreless 6:47 in the fourth when Crawford hit on a 3-pointer with 2:06 to play, and the Wizards finally took the 84-82 lead on Emeka Okafor's two...
I managed to catch Randy Wittman's post game press conference following the Washington Wizards first win of the season, which came against the Portland Trailblazers. He answered questions about the team team's struggles this season and the feeling in the locker room.
Could the first win for the Washington Wizards have only been because the opposing starting point guard was freaked out in their city? Portland Trailblazer rookie Damian Lillard apparently has a slight phobia towards statues. Maybe it was the extra nerves (Lillard went 6-21) that allowed the Wiz to pick up their first win Wednesday night 84-82 over Lillard's Blazers. The first...
Portland continues East Coast slide

Where: Verizon Center (Washington D.C.)

After enduring the worst start in team history, the Washington Wizards finally got in the win column their last time out.
Another victory could be hard to come by with a visit to Madison Square Garden in store.
The Wizards try to build on their latest result Friday night against the New York Knicks, who look to stay unbeaten at home and continue their recent domination in the series...
Wizards win! On their 13th try, the 2012/13 Washington Wizards finally won a game of basketball. They did so at home against the Portland Trail Blazers, who shot 34.9% from the floor in the 84-82 upset. Washington nearly blew it by failing to score as the Blazers rattled of 16 straight, but they were able to hang on thanks to a timely three from Jordan Crawford (the only Wizard...
The Cavaliers were playing the 2nd night of a back to back and their 4th game in 5 days. And they played like it, too.
Not a whole lot to say about this one. The Cavaliers, without guards Kyrie Irving and Daniel Gibson, were simply flat from start to finish. Lost in all the gloom and monotony of this game was another great double-double effort from Anderson Varejao who finished with...
