It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
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 miserably, they brought “Eddie” who stole the shoe.
“Eddie” who appeared to be at the game on a date couldn’t relinquish his cell phone as he was supposedly talking to his date while he was on the floor ready for his turn. So he did what any Romeo would, he kept the cell phone to his ear as he took off running, went flying off the trampoline and completed the dunk.
And yes, I know it’s fake. We know “Eddie” wasn’t randomly pulled from the audience. Nonetheless, it was still somewhat impressive. The public address announcer was impressed…or so he acted. It’s all about that entertainment value.
BEST OF MAXIM

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...

The Washington Post online sports section includes special coverage of the Wizards. Michael Lee (Twitter) is the lead writer who also writes for the Wizards Insider blog.
WASHINGTON -- The game's conclusion included two ejections after a flagrant foul by Washington Wizards rookie Bradley Beal led to a retaliatory push to the ground by the Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings. The tipping point came when the Bucks' bench pushed back Washington's second half charge. Monta Ellis paced five double-digit scorers with 22 points and the...
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...
