It seems the endless tweets, posts and wishes of increased stability at the point guard position finally funneled into the Wizards front office.
Free agent Shaun Livingston can now put a halt to the unemployment checks and begin his hunt for real estate in the DC metro area as the Washington Wizards have announced their acquisition of the oft-traveling veteran.
It’s fair to assume the move may have been expedited thanks in great part to the crap show Jannero Pargo put up last night in Dallas. With the Livingston signing, Pargo will now be the one polishing his resume after the Wizards waived the struggling guard.
At least now I won't have to deal with the irksome task of making sure his name is spelled right. Is it two N's or two R's?
Pargo’s departure from DC won’t be a memorable one for him nor the fans who often scrutinized him throughout his short stint with the team.
Livingston will be making his second career appearance in a Wizard uniform. He played 26 games in DC back in the 2009-10 season before signing with the Charlotte Bobcats. He last played with the Houston Rockets before being released last month for financial reasons.
In the Wizards press release, GM Ernie Grunfeld stated: “We are obviously familiar with what Shaun brings both on and off the court based on his previous time here and we’re confident that he will be a positive addition to our team.
“His size and playmaking ability will give us more flexibility in the backcourt.”
For his career, Livingston averages 7.3 points, 2.5 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 1 steal per game.
BEST OF MAXIM
The winless Washington Wizards have waived Jannero Pargo and signed free-agent guard Shaun Livingston, bringing back a player they hope can help fill the void until John Wall returns from injury.
Pargo appeared in all seven of Washington's games during its 0-7 start, averaging 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.6 minutes.

Now that our beloved Washington Wizards have started 0-7 my frustrations, along with every other Wizards fan, are getting close to the tipping point. Randy Wittman can’t seem to put a solid and consistent rotation on the floor on a nightly basis, so I’m going to lay one out for him that would be much more beneficial to this team and to us die-hards who have been pulling our hair...
The Bulls are among the teams that have already reached out to Jannero Pargo.

I have got to give this one to Cartier Martin. Jordan Crawford played great, especially filling in for the injured A.J.Price at point guard but Cartier almost single-handedly got the Wizards their first win. He sat on the bench the entire game until...

After last night’s blowout at the hands of the Bobcats (one of the worst statements a NBA fan can mutter), I can’t tell if this is 2011 or 2012. Last year the Washington Wizards started out 0-8 and with upcoming games against the...
Earlier today we tweeted a John Wall GIF that summed up these winless, feckless Wizards rather nicely, but this one from the halftime show of last night’s loss to the Bobcats (via @HouseFromDC) really takes the cake.
Your 2012-13 Washington Wizards, like a karate stick to the nuts.

The Washington Wizards played the Charlotte Bobcats Tuesday night in a game that made all 6 viewers at home say “can’t we just contract one of these teams and combine the rosters?” The game was so unappealing that even the referees appeared to tune out at one point. The Set-Up: with just over three minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Jan...
The Wizards have signed Shaun Livingston.
This past Tuesday the woeful Washington Wizards lost at home to the Charlotte Bobcats 92-76, and as poor as the outcome was on the game side of things, it paled in comparison to the halftime entertainment, which featured some high quality martial arts demonstrations, including one guy breaking a bamboo stick with his all-powerful crotch.
Little known fact—this is how...
Check out the halftime entertainment during the Washington Wizards vs. Charlotte Bobcats game this past week. Never seen anything like it. How is breaking a bamboo stick over your genitals entertainment? Can't explain it, but it damn sure makes me laugh every time I watch it. I guess the real question we should be asking these guys is how they heck do you even think about...
After last night’s loss to the deplorable Charlotte Bobcats, many fans of the Washington Wizards find themselves at a loss (most notably our own DJ Saam). The frustration is kicking in. Before long, the Phone Booth is going to be more of a ghost town than it already is.
But Wizards fans: Just remember, it could always be worse.
