As another NBA season comes to an end, the league’s superstars are set for more glory as some of them will be given end of season awards. It looks as if yet another MVP trophy is set to be added to an all ready full trophy closet in Lebron’s mansion. He will step up to a podium and will deliver the same boring speech about how he is just so grateful for his teammates and is just so happy to play the game of basketball… blah blah blah. That’s great and all (hurray for King James!) but what about the players who play on teams that don’t make the playoffs and are never given credit, like the Washington Wizards? I think it’s about time they get some awards to. So without further ado, here are my end of season awards for the sad and misunderstood Wizards:
MVP: This won’t shock anybody. John Wall is far and away Washington’s MVP of yet another rough season. After missing the first 32 games with a stress injury in his left knee, Wall came back to a team that was a bleak 4-28 and transforme...
BEST OF MAXIM
Our sports heroes never stay great forever. In the constant heavyweight bout between The Athlete and Father Time, Father Time has maintained a flawless record, unblemished in any way. No matter who the said competitor is or their previous triumphs, the game must end. The minutes reduce as the numbers that wowed fans across the league shrink to a fraction of their most impressive...
Four of these guys leave more questions than answers. Earlier today, my colleague Adam Banig wrote a piece about how he was optimistic about the Wizards future, and in particular with the younger guys on this team. While I love the optimism, I think the future is a little more cloudy than it should be. Don’t get me wrong, the Wizards are certainly on the right track, but some...
The 2012-2013 season has been a trying season for the youth of the Washington Wizards, but it is just a rough patch in their growth. Throughout the season we have seen injuries to John Wall, Trevor Booker and now Bradley Beal, but when this trio has been healthy and got minutes they have performed. Add Kevin Seraphin, the raw but athletic big man and the potential filled Jan Vesley...
As many of you already were well aware — and those who were not, I have some bad news for you — Monday was April 15, the day when the filing of one’s annual income tax statements were supposed to be mailed in to the IRS. Whether you were preparing your 1040 and all the associated schedules and whatnot on your own or if you entrusted a skilled tax preparer to work through them...
Trevor Ariza, who currently plays for the Washington Wizards, chimed in on a former teammate’s recent injury. That former teammate was Kobe Bryant. When Ariza was with the Lakers, he [...]

The Wizards went into Brooklyn last night to play a game that would easily be mistaken for a Summer League matchup. With several key contributors from both teams sitting out the rest of the season, it was a battle between sloppy...
The Wizards' 2012-13 campaign is winding down to a finish this week, prepping us for our last in-season 3-on-3 segment. Here's what's on tap:
So the Wizards recently decided to pull the plug on Nene, Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster for the remaining two games of the season, giving the injured trio a headstart to their offseason as they nurse some nagging injuries...

Toko (Nets rookie forward Tornike Shengalia from the Republic of Georgia) has quickly become a Brooklyn fan favorite, even though he hasn't played much. But tonight, he played a lot, and was a big role in the Nets winning this meaningless game
You know that sick point-guard matchup between Deron Williams and John Wall that I mentioned in the preview? Well...
