Throughout the community of Wizards fans, there is not a more polarizing player then JaVale McGee. There are supporters who believe McGee is a potential all-star and think Washington should do what they can to keep him, and then there are those who believe he has no basketball IQ and should be on the next flight out of DC. No one player elicits such a broad range of opinion when discussing his value to the Wizards and their long-term plans. Some say he should be moved immediately while he still has trade value; others say he is the future of the NBA (granted the latter is from his mom).
Whatever the case may be, Washington is going to have to make a decision on McGee. They MUST decide if he is going to be in the future plans of the team. As of right now, the team seems to be running in the wrong direction (courtesy of TrutAboutIt.net). There is no doubt about it that McGee possesses all the physical tools necessary to become a dominant center in the league, but his baske...

In case you don't know, the Washington Wizards are a mess. From Flip Saunders getting fired, to JaVale McGee showboating and subsequently getting benched, this team needs a complete overhaul.
Oh and speaking of McGee, he pulled another idiotic, yet hilarious, move on the court.
In a recent game against the Toronto Raptors, McGee got a wee bit confused after he missed a shot...
Knicks, Wizards, wicked pixels, blah blah blah. You don’t really care about the game. You care about seeing a pair of third-quarter dunks in which Jeremy Lin and John Wall sort of dunked in the general vicinity of each other. First came Wall’s dunk, which is above. Then came Lin’s dunk, which is below. Got awfully loud after that dunk for a road arena.

LeBron James was making one mistake after another in the third quarter on Friday night, from missing two easy layups to an air ball of a three-point attempt. Then when he kicked the ball out of bounds, it was all but certain at least he was paying nominal regard to the Washington Wizards, who entered as losers of five of their last six.

As the matchup against the defending Eastern Conference champs was looming, dreaded thoughts of a massacre were instilled in the minds of many of the Wizards faithful.
The pre-game conversations weren’t about whether the Wizards were going to win or lose (even though those conversations usually end up with the same lopsided consensus), but instead you wondered how bad the far...
John Wall's first home game against the Miami Heat was over after roughly 15 minutes, when he got kicked out for punching the free elbow-swinging center Zydrunas Ilgauskas in the midsection.
The Wizards were still able to hang around as Jordan Crawford exploded for a career-high 39 points, scoring at will with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James taking turns but unable to fully...
The supposed comforts of home are often absent when the Wizards take the court at Verizon Center, where fans can purchase tickets on the black market for the price of a call from a pay phone, Andray Blatche gets booed every time he touches the ball, and large crowds only come out to support the opposing team.

WASHINGTON (AP) Dwyane Wade scored 26 points, putting in more than his share of poetry-in-motion moments during a second-quarter
run, and the Miami Heat topped the Washington Wizards 106-89 Friday night.
After getting their six-game road trip off to a poor start, the Miami Heat will dust themselves off for tonight's showdown against the lowly Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center.
Strange as it may be to say about a February victory over a team that has yet to reach double digits in the win column, the Miami HEAT's 106-89 win over the Washington Wizards might be one of its more impressive games in weeks. Mostly because it was so very normal.
