Nene No.42 * Pos. C * Age 30 * Ht. 6'11" * Wt. 250 * College: * Salary $13,000,000 Week 1 performance: INCOMPLETE : Nene got no run this week so there's no grade here. I'm excited to see when the Wizards get both him and Wall back into the lineup.
Trevor Ariza No.1 * Pos. SF * Age 27 * Ht. 6'8" * Wt. 210 * College: UCLA * Salary $7,258,960 Week 1 performance: D : I've been concerned about Ariza since the preseason. I know you're not supposed to put too much into games that don't count but Ariza has come out pretty stale in his first two games of the season. Take out the first basket of the season for Washington, a 3pt FG and Ariza is 2-12. After a so-so performance against the Cavs, Trevor follwed it up with a dud against the Celtics. Hope he can figure out his role in the offense in the coming weeks.

Those of you in the D.C. area who enjoy having a few beers before watching your favorite team play were treated to a great special from the Washington Wizards on Saturday night. As you can see from the advertisement above, the Wizards were running a promotion where $25 got you a ticket and access to $2 Budweisers for several hours before Washington’s game against the Boston Celtics...
Recently, the Washington Wizards put together a ticket promotion for opening night called "Bar Tour" where if someone bought a certain $25 dollar ticket, they could get $2 Budweisers during the game.The advertisement was created by TiqIQ and features 1st-round draft pick Bradley Beal on the ad which is actually a gaffe.Why you ask? Beal is 19-years-old and is not legally...
Note: I’m aware John Wall won’t be playing tonight, but this is about the state of the Wizards, and Wall is in integral part of that conversation. So. Enjoy.One of my good friends has been dating a girl for nearly a year. She is his first girlfriend in a very, very long time, and as is wont to happen in such situations, he got very invested in the relationship very quickly. This...
Rapper The Game was in DC over the weekend as a stop on his tour. Injured Wizards point guard John Wall played on Game’s summer league team at the Drew league last summer so, it’s only right they get together while he was in town. The Game attended Wizards vs. Celtics while he was [...]
It’s already been a tough season for the Washington Wizards, as their two best players John Wall and Nene are out indefinitely. That doesn’t leave many bright young faces to be the “face of the franchise” right now. The closest thing to it is 2nd overall pick Bradley Beal out of Florida. With struggling personnel comes struggles to sell tickets, and the fans need a little...

Well that was better, I guess. The Celtics survived a nail-biter against the Washington Wizards (WITHOUT John Wall and Nene) after they blew a sizable lead. But I’ll TRY to be positive and accept our first win of the season on the second night of a back-to-back, and chalk it up to the Celtics playing down to inferior competition. Let’s get to the recap:Sullinger got the...

Justin Bieber continues to be everywhere at once. The Biebs met up with Wizards star John Wall on Monday, setting the stage for a historic photo opportunity that shows just how strange it is when you see someone on a segway.-TO

The YouTube channel “The NOC” has put together a few of these now with my favorite being the “Every fan of Major League Baseball.” With the NBA season waking up, they have rolled out a three-minute taste test of “Every fan of the NBA” where they poke fun at every fan base with one-liners. It’s classic.
A few of my favorites:
