Didn't see the game. They won. Save your angst for when they lose.

It will definitely make them a better team to fire the coach every year or two. Maybe Red Auerbach will come back from the dead to coach the team. Phil Jackson could be the GM. I am sure that will guarantee a championship.

Compared to last year, the Wiz don't seem to be on one track for too long a time  ...  a little defense here and there, a little one on one here and there, some great team play here and there play and then there are the long stretches that seem simply to be takin' time off.    They need John Wall every night.    BTW What happened to Jason Smith's playin' time?

Good to see you back here. Smith's minutes have gone to Mike Scott and Mahinmi. He now seems unable to shoot. If you look at Smith's three point shooting in his career last year is an outlier. Maybe he can get it going again.

They have been lackluster this year. Remember they started 2-8 last year so not sure their record at this juncture but not as good as this year. Even with Wall missing so many games.

I really think Brooks is experimenting with rotations and plays. Maybe they will come around. Probably another second round exit. It's what they do b

I really think Brooks is experimenting with rotations and plays. Of course, havin' Wall out didn't help.     Maybe they will come around. Probably another second round exit. It's what they do b

Might be my imagination but it seems to be lingerin' a bit this year.     One of the studio guys mentions, almost every broadcast, the Wiz play down to their competition.    Lookin' forward to parts of tomorrow's game   ...   during time outs in the Steelers game.    :)

Big game on a lot of levels for the Steelers.    I've got a fresh Captain on the shelf.    I'll finish what's left of the old 750 watchin' the Caps tonight.

The Wizards’ City Edition alternate uniform is pretty snazzy.

The "OF COLUMBIA" is lame. Did they think no one would know which district if they left it out?

Explain this.

Beat the Celtics in Boston. And blow out the Rockets at home. And in between lose to Atlanta. Wildly inconsistent.

after playing the Celtics, teams are worn down and the food poisoning has not worn off?  Oh, the food poisoning is only with the Pats.

I don't doubt it--ghost of Red Auerbach messing with the water.

the new garden does not have the same HVAC issues the old one that Red allegedly messed with.

What happened to Otto?    I missed it though I've had it on in the back ground.

He went out of the game last night with that hip issue again. I suppose that is what has him out tonight.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.     Thanks.       I like KO off the bench but his startin' (to me) is not much of a down grade.

The hip seems to be a recurring issue with Otto. They may need to shut him down for a couple weeks.
