According to the Washington Wizards official website, the team has waived backup PG Jannero Pargo and signed free agent Shaun Livingston: WASHINGTON, D.C. –Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has signed free agent guard Shaun Livingston. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. “We are obviously familiar with what Shaun brings both on and off the court based on his previous time here and we’re confident that he will be a positive addition to our team,” said Grunfeld. “His size and playmaking ability will give us more flexibility in the backcourt.” Livingston (6-7, 175) was originally selected by the Los Angeles Clippers with the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft out of Peoria Central High School in Illinois. He appeared in 26 games (18 starts) with the Wizards in 2009-10, averaging 9.2 points, 4.5 assists and 2.2 rebounds. This is a welcomed signing for Wizards fan, many of whom have been calling for the Wizards to pick Li...

Rookie Royce White is having a difficult time with the Houston Rockets, and now he reportedly says he's willing to quit the NBA.
Now that our beloved Washington Wizards have started 0-7 my frustrations, along with every other Wizards fan, are getting close to the tipping point. Randy Wittman can’t seem to put a solid and consistent rotation on the floor on a nightly basis, so I’m going to lay one out for him that would be much more beneficial to this team and to us die-hards who have been pulling our hair...
Wednesday Wizards Report Image courtesy @KevinHineWoA with Wiz of Awes _________________________________________ Wizards Need Changes….NOW! After last night’s blowout at the hands of the Bobcats (one of the worst statements a NBA fan can mutter), I can’t tell if this is 2011 or 2012. Last year the Washington Wizards started out 0-8 and with upcoming games against the...
Earlier today we tweeted a John Wall GIF that summed up these winless, feckless Wizards rather nicely, but this one from the halftime show of last night’s loss to the Bobcats (via @HouseFromDC) really takes the cake.
Your 2012-13 Washington Wizards, like a karate stick to the nuts.
The timetable for the Rockets is wider than it is for the Knicks, giving Jeremy Lin more room to develop his game.

The Washington Wizards played the Charlotte Bobcats Tuesday night in a game that made all 6 viewers at home say “can’t we just contract one of these teams and combine the rosters?” The game was so unappealing that even the referees appeared to tune out at one point. The Set-Up: with just over three minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Jan...
Houston Rockets rookie Royce White and the team seem to be at odds over the Rockets assigning him to the D League. Royce’s anxiety issues have been well documented and the Rockets came out in support of him but somewhere along the line things have gone awry with the team claiming Royce has gone [...]

James Harden scored 30 points, Omer Asik added 15 points and 12 rebounds, and the Houston Rockets held off the New Orleans Hornets 100-96 on Wednesday night.
Harden went 10 for 20 from the field but only 1 of 7 from 3-point range. He reached 30 points for the third time in seven games with the Rockets.
Greivis Vasquez scored a career-high 24 for the Hornets, despite hurting his...
Thursday’s edition of S.I.’s Hot Clicks contained a lot of gems (‘sup, Ashley Sky?), but none more enjoyable and reassuring than this compilation video of NBA players airballing shots. The first day of my Houston Rockets fandom was met with Jeremy Lin throwing up a Brandon Stroud-esque airball from three-point range, so it’s nice to see everyone doing it, and not just star...
HOUSTON -- The newly constructed Houston Rockets showed Wednesday that they could deal with an unexpected reversal of fortunes. Two nights earlier, the Rockets erased a 17-point deficit, blew past the Heat, and then watched as LeBron James led Miami to victory late. On Wednesday night, the Rockets fashioned a seemingly insurmountable lead, only for the New Orleans Hornets to methodically...
I’m not a big fan of writing posts about whatever happens on twitter but every now and then something pops that I feel like addressing. Yesterday Houston Rockets rookie Royce White tweeted his discontent about his relationship with the Rockets. For those who don’t know, the promising rookie talent has generalized anxiety disorder, a condition that can make routine day-to-day...
