Never heard of the Cinnamon Challenge? Neither had I, but here’s the gist of it, according to KnowYourMeme.com…
The Cinnamon Challenge is a popular dare game in which a person attempts to swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon without vomiting or inhaling the powder. Thousands of videos with people attempting the challenge have been uploaded on YouTube — few succeed.
From the latest installment of “The Nick & JaVale Show,” which features Washington Wizards teammates Nick Young and JaVale McGee (I’m guessing that’s why it’s called “The Nick & JaVale Show” — you know, because those are their names: …Nick & JaVale!), comes this footage of the two gents attempting the frequently-attempted-yet-rarely-accomplished “Cinnamon...
Okay so JaVale McGee doesn’t spend all his time working out or running on the beach with the sea gulls. The rest of the time he’s working on his pick-up lines that he says don’t work. Too bad that one about playing on the Wizards isn’t really applicable right now… Will you use any of [...]
Wizards free agent swingman Maurice Evans was committed to getting a new collective bargaining agreement over the past two years and especially the past four months, in which he tirelessly traveled back and forth from his home in Texas to New York for hours upon hours of negotiations.

Jan Vesely returned home to the Czech Republic earlier this week, with the NBA lockout forcing him to contemplate his options about where to continue playing basketball.

John Wall said he was unharmed early Tuesday morning while partying at a New York nightclub where a gunman opened fire, killing one man and injuring two others. Wall was among several athletes and celebrities at Juliet Supper Club in Chelsea, where five shots were fired at around 2:30 a.m.
“I’m good,” Wall wrote in a text message when asked if he was in danger. He added that...
Peak Shoes has released Lockout Diaries Day 1, Part 2 with JaVale McGee. So now we have two videos of JaVale working out and 18 videos of JaVale goofing around.
Although we are in Day 139 of the lockout, which means that Peak is on pace to have 276 more episodes of JaVale’s lockout diary. God help us all.
This is our official plea for another Wizards player -- ANY OTHER WIZARDS...
Monday was one of the most cataclysmic days yet in the NBA labor skirmish, and the rhetoric was heated on all sides.
The Wizards’ star players, of course, mostly haven’t been involved in the negotiating process; their player-rep is the little-known swingman Maurice Evans, one of the players’ leaders.
“We’ve literally compromised; we’ve literally bargained in good faith...
