Now he's lighting it up in the 4th. 10 pts in 6 minutes on 4-5 shooting. ::shrug:: it's a compelling game though.

Watching the way Blatche is playing makes me nauseated.

Playing like the player he should have been.

One game after defeating the red-hot Wizards, the Sacramento Kings went on the road and lost to (EDITED--thanks, nuposse) MEMPHIS 69-85. Demarcus Cousins was 9-19 FG and finished with 22 points, 12 rebounds.

The rest of the Kings were 20-66 FG and all combined to score just 47 points.

--Has anyone considered that Demarcus Cousins doesn't have the best teammates?

--How good would Cousins be as a Wizard?

With Washington, DeMarcus Cousins would collectively have better teammates than he has in Sacramento.
Will the Wizards' success be sustained or was it fool's gold?

I think it was Memphis they lost to. Which is kinda funny, because Memphis is a team we ought to model ourselves around IMO. Superior Bigs down low, with good low post passing and smothering wing defense. If we got Cousins I think we could easily become the grizzlies of the east.

I'm with you on Cousins, CCJ. Their point guard rotation isn't strong and I feel that's a big factor in a young big's development.

Having a point guard in Wall who (A) Cousins already knows, (B) has a great relationship/chemistry with and (C) has incredible court vision and passing ability would instantly turn Big Cuz into a 20/12/3 big with higher efficiency.

Touche...

We are STILL Wizards fans. I am sure KD has moved on from his Raptors infatuation...

Looks as if the Seattle Supersonics may be coming (back) to an arena near you...

What a mess.

The Sonics now own the Kings history while the Thunder own the Sonics history?

Stern/Silver better step in and remedy that right away. That is redonkulous.

Me too. Great fans. And WTF else they got to do in Sac-Town. I guess Yosemite and Reno
and/or SF is not that long a drive.

Anyway the Wiz can get dibs on the "Kings" name? Hate to see such a good name go to waste.

That'd be a little odd...we represent the "shining example of democracy" yet we embrace the idea of rooting for a bunch of Monarchs.

Washington Lobbyists seems more apt. I personally like Washington Warbirds.

:o Irving dropped 40 tonight.
Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.
