+1

Jimmer looked WAY better than when we last saw him in DC.
He was doing an excellent job moving with/without the ball.
I did breath a huge sigh of relief when he bricked the most
open shot he had all night. Jimmer could end up being kind
of like JJ Redick in being a great college player/shooter
that takes 3-5 years to really learn to play in the NBA.


The trade I hoped for was Crawford for Jimmer, back when Crawford had 30-something scoring nights and Jimmer looked like a stiff.

That's not happening now, if it was possible then. Jimmer is much-improved.
Will the Wizards' success be sustained or was it fool's gold?

I should have obeyed the 24-hour rule, Ruz.

jivelikenice, when you typed "I want know part of Cousins on the team" that must have been in frustration, just like in the past my typing "John Wall should be traded". :D

I'm traveling and was unable to see the game. Obviously, Beal had a monster outing -- how great to see that!

This team is playing a lot better -- how great to see that too!
People say I'm mellowing with age. Nah.

It is still not possible to formulate a counter-argument -- even if I say... Is so!

I watched the game yesterday and Beal had the quietest 26/6 game you will ever see, sort of the opposit of Crawford. Crawford expends a lot of energy to make plays but Beal just took what was there, never forced anything and just made the right plays. He didn't hold the ball or dribble excessively.

His release on 3s was pretty quick too.

and he had 26 pts on 14 shots AND 6 assists
A lot of what we call 'thought' is just mental activity
