Wiz Early Season Report (AP Photo/Elise Amendola) Three games have come and gone and the Washington Wizards have yet to claim victory. So far this season it has been the same misery that happens to us Wizards fans year in and year out. But this misery actually has some promise and has us doing some wishful thinking to what we can accomplish when we can get our two best players in John Wall and Nene back on the court and have our roster at full strength. Just imagine games when our fearless point guard at the moment AJ Price ISN’T dribbling around and jacking Gilbert-esque shots all over the place and turning the ball over at the blink on an eye for 30 minutes a game. Imagine having an actual point guard running our team and another post presence that can make ten foot jump shots and open us some wide open shots for our shooters. Let’s take a look at 3 things to be excited about for us Wizards fans and 3 things that have us pulling our hair out already one week into the season. W...

Image courtesy @KevinHineWoA with WizOfAwes.com Prior to this year’s Wizards season tipping off, I had an article in the que titled “This is Bradley Beal’s Team until John Wall Returns.” I was even going to do a whole Batman/Robin bit too (since Beal has proclaimed his love for Batman) on how Beal could be the Batman on this team for now. Three games into the season...
With the NBA product what it is, many teams are incorporating fans into activities during timeouts to maintain interest. The Washington Wizards pulled out some serious stunts this past Saturday against the Boston Celtics. They grabbed fans out of the stands to follow mascot G-Man’s lead by attempting dunks after jumping off a trampoline. After several average Joes failed...
The Washington Wizards fought back from double digit deficits in the first and second halves of the game tonight, but a flurry of turnovers by Kevin Seraphin and Martell Webster during the final momnets of regulation allowed the Celtics to force overtime and it was no contest in the extra period. Boston's increasingly physical defensive play, which was not punished by the referees...
Tweet The Washington Wizards dropped to 0-4 on Friday with a 101-91 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Wizards rookie Bradley Beal had the best scoring game of his young career with 22 points, but this play is what many will remember about his fourth NBA game. Beal received a Flagrant Foul 2 and [...]
The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Washington Wizards Friday night, 101 to 91. The Bucks moved to 3-1, and the Wizards fell to 0-4.
The Wizards started the game with a 12-0 run. The Bucks spent the first two minutes missing shots, turning the ball over, and allowing breakout layups. It was spectacularly bad. Then they regrouped, shot well from the three point line, and got themselves...
The Washington Wizards opened last season with eight straight losses.
Already halfway there, they now visit a city where they haven't won in over five years.
One of two winless teams remaining in the NBA, the Wizards will try to capitalize on the struggling Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.
Washington (0-4) started 2011-12 with eight straight losses, and eventually fired coach...
A matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards would normally see two of the league's most promising young point guards go head-to-head in John Wall and Brandon Jennings.
Instead, two of the biggest surprises in the frontcourt could be in the spotlight in Friday night's matchup in the nation's capital.
Wall still hasn't played because of a stress injury...
What did Boston do to anger Kevin Seraphin so deeply?Overall, it’s about the win; that’s what we did.-Rajon RondoRondo is right. Kind of. Nothing negative about tonight will matter in the grand scheme of things. Nobody was injured. Nobody flipped out on anybody else. Nothing notably BAD came out of the Celtics’ win tonight, and it WAS a win. So all’s well that ends well,...

WASHINGTON -- Monta Ellis paced five double-digit scorers with 22 points and the Milwaukee Bucks' reserves keyed a 13-0 second-half run in a 101-91 win over the Washington Wizards on Friday night.
