Whether regular season or summer league action, everyone loves to see someone get dunked on, like how the Washington Wizards Chris Singleton smashes on Chris Daniels from the D-League Select squad: It’s only a matter of time before the Wizards amnesty Andray Blatche and pass that playing time on to Singleton, right? Wizards fans certainly [...]
Since the name Chris Singleton may not be ringing any bells, let me remind you of his most notable exploit: Singleton once made waves in the blogosphere when he admitted to dropping 10 Gs on lottery tickets in an attempt to win the world’s biggest jackpot. Other than that, the 22-year-old Wizard selected 18th overall in 2011 is yet to make much noise… but he’s got time,...
The Washington Wizards waived Andray Blatche on Tuesday, designating him as the team's amnesty player.
The 25-year-old forward averaged 9.9 points and 5.4 rebounds over seven seasons with the Wizards, who drafted him out of high school in the second round in 2005.

For those of you who never checked in on the NBA’s traveling circus that was the ’11/12 Washington...

Patrick Ewing, Georghe Muresan, Lenny Wilkens, and Teresa Edwards all assisted with the clinic which held five different stations for the children to learn the fundamentals of basketball.
Two of the veterans,...
It took the Washington Wizards one Summer League game to get into their groove. One night removed from being blown out of the Cox Pavilion gym by the Atlanta Hawks, the Wizards survived a furious 4th quarter comeback attempt by the Houston Rockets, winning their first game of the summer 76-70.
