Kelly Oubre Jr. getting embraced as 'little brother' by Wizards teammates

The Washington Wizards are a relatively old basketball team. Their best players are considerably young (John Wall is 25 and Bradley Beal is 22), but so many other contributors on the roster are veterans. Kelly Oubre Jr. is definitely not a veteran. The rookie is one of the youngest players in the entire league, and here's what he recently told The Washington Post about his status...

Report: Washington to sign Jaleel Roberts

The Washington Wizards spent their offseason downsizing their roster. They signed Jared Dudley to play some stretch four and invested on the wing with guys like Alan Anderson, Gary Neal and Kelly Oubre Jr..  But no matter how fast the league drifts to the perimeter, seven footers will always be important. With that in mind, the Wizards have reportedly brought one in on a non-guaranteed...

Gary Neal: "You've got to go where the checks are"

Two summers ago, Gary Neal voluntarilly forfeited the opportunity to chase a championship by signing with the Milwaukee Bucks instead of re-signing with the San Antonio Spurs—€”the team that made him an NBA player.  Ever since, Neal has bounced around the league, and he's currently coming off the bench for the 14-51 Minnesota Timberwolves.

Wolves newcomer Neal faces uncertain future

MINNEAPOLIS -- After his first Timberwolves practice, Gary Neal needed more than one set of instructions from a team staffer to navigate the Target Center's labyrinth of hallways and elevators. As he was led from the Lifetime Fitness practice facility back to the dressing room Wednesday night, he studied the route, raising his eyebrows at its complexity. He might not need to know...

Hornets Win 2 in a Row; Is this the Turning Point?

Hornets fans, our beloved team has now won 2 games in a row.  I didn’t write an article after the victory in Philly because honestly, it was a game that we should have won.  I mean honestly, a team with 24 turnovers in a game should not win.  I feel bad for the Sixers though.  They really are trying.  They did have 12 blocks on the night.  That’s pretty impressive.  I...

Charlotte Hornets: Gary Neal is lighting it up

The Charlotte Hornets have been pretty awful so far this season.  Charlotte currently sits at 4-11 and hosts 11-3 Portland on Wednesday. The offensive performances and defensive performances have been spotty all season.  They are simply finding ways to lose games instead of finding ways to win them. Gary Neal has been playing great this season. One bright spot for the Hornets...

Too Much Heat in Miami; Hornets Drop 5th Straight

If you take the game as a whole, it was one of the better games the Hornets have played this season.  A solid effort was put forth by every player on the team, and we just came up short at the end.   5 players in double figures is a good thing, but not when you still lose.  Al Jefferson had 22 points and 12 rebounds, Lance Stephenson had 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists (he...
