Michael Wilbon Blast D.C. Fans For Not Supporting Wizards

Michael Wilbon might be on to something.  I’ve never understood how certain fan bases can clamor for decades about the lack of winning product, and then once that team becomes a championship contender, fans in that city still don’t have time to support a winner. The Washington Wizards are the craze of the NBA, but they seem to only get love from the fans of opposing cities...

John Wall Takes Zach LaVine to School

Minnesota’s rookie point guard Zach LaVine has huge upside. He may be in the discussion as one of the better point guards in the NBA down the line. But on Tuesday night he was taken to school, and his teacher was Wizards’ point guard John Wall. LaVine struggled to stay with the faster Wall all night. Wall scored 21 points and dropped 17 assists, tying his career-high in which...

We’re a couple of weeks away from the release of Taken 3 in theaters, and ESPN is promoting the film a little bit by combining it with a promotion for their NBA Christmas schedule on ABC. In this trailer, Liam Neeson calls John Wall to tell him that the Knicks will beat the Wizards on Christmas. Yep. That’s totally plausible. I’d assume this trailer was filmed before the...

Bomani Jones calls out Colin Cowherd over John Wall talk

One of the worst vendettas in sports media is Colin Cowherd’s multiple years of riding John Wall into the ground.  Cowherd’s rants on Wall ever since he debuted in the NBA is the worst of sports talk radio and enough words have been typed about the subject.  It’s been nothing short of racially charged character assassination.  Over the years Cowherd has called Wall’s...
