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 league’s cellar dwellers, Washington took command from the get-go, scoring the game’s first 8 points and setting the tone for the rest of the way.
After taking a 20 point lead at halftime, the Wiz Kids never looked back and steadily built the lead to as many as 32 in the fourth quarter, thanks mainly to a blistering 67-point performance by the Wizards’ bench led by none other than James Singleton and Cartier Martin.
Let me just get this out of the way: the Charlotte Bobcats suck. Seven in the win column is enough to justify that statement, but actually observing this team for a full 48 minutes will displa...

If you’re into superstars who play on the worst teams in the NBA, Reebok is coming out with a new sneaker that you’re going to love. According to SLAM Online, Reebok will be releasing these limited-edition gold John Wall sneakers at midnight on Thursday. The package is called “Beyond the Gold” and is selling for $200.

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...
The Washington Wizards swingman, James Singleton cleans up a missed shot with a thunderous put-pack slam during the 2nd quarter of Monday night’s matchup between the Washington Wizards and the Charlotte Bobcats
The game may not have playoff implications, but my oh my can this young man throw it down with some power!
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...
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.
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...
This slick connection from second-year point-guard, John Wall, to first-year power-forward, Jan Vesely, came with just about four minutes to go in the first quarter.
John Wall sure makes the art of passing look easy.
Kevin Seraphin had a career night for Washington while taking advantage of Dwight Howard's absence from Orlando's lineup.
Seraphin had career-bests with 24 points and 13 rebounds and tied his high with four blocks to lead the Wizards to a 93-85 victory over the Magic on Tuesday night.
"So you've got a night where you don't have to play against the best center...
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.
