He doesn't need basketball training, he needs a head doctor.

Hell of a gamble they made. Big risk when you are betting on stupid.

Like Forest said. Stupid is and stupid does.

And that is why they call him, The Big Tease.

Sounds like a soundbite that could be coming from Flip Saunders if he was still coaching this team.

Around these parts that sort of comment was qualified as borderline abusive. The more things change the more they stay the same..
..let's keep in mind that while the Wizards were trading for Okafor and Ariza, giving away a draft pick and cap room, bypassing the free agent market and rejecting a trade for Harden, Leonsis was publicly congratulating himself for being smart. - Nivek

Great write-up in the article above, Jan Vesely is the new Joe Alexander except Joe was selected 8th.

I wonder why this is true. Perhaps he was out of shape like other NBA players like Lamar Odom. Or just playing with a team where Blatche doesn't have to relied for his scoring with Wiliams, Lopez, and Johnson or grabbing boards with Wallace and Evans. Or maybe he's not talking as many 20 footers. Or getting cut served as a wake up call or motivation to get his act together especially since few teams pursued him once he was amnestied.

Is there any scenario that Blatche could have produced this kind of play with the Wizards or was he simply a lost cause? A lot of people have criticized Ernie but many were on board with letting Blatche go- people were comparing having him or Kwame Brown when they amnestied him.

Well at least Martell Webster is playing well and even the Oka/rizza tandem as of march.

Good for Dray. But I am ecstatic that he is gone. I think this is a win-win situation.

JaVale McGee, outspoken mother to get reality show
Kurt Helin Apr 4, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

AP
You wanted more JaVale McGee, you got him.

McGee is one of the NBA’s best athletes but is as capable of making a head-scratching decision on the court as he is making your jaw drop with this athleticism. His mother — a former college player at USC — is an outspoken defender of her son. McGee can stand is own ground, too.

So, that makes a television show for the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), according the Hollywood Reporter. Thanks to CSNWashington.com for finding that.

McGee became synonymous with some of the problems with the Washington Wizards in past seasons — that was a team with a lot of talent and an unprofessional locker room. It’s part of the reason McGee was traded to the Nuggets, where even coach George Karl said, “He’s got to understand that lazy and crazy isn’t going to make it work.” However his teammates like Andre Iguodala has got his back.

McGee with his mother could make good television, JP Finlay says at CSNWashington.com. He explains why.

Pamela McGee made news in D.C. when JaVale played for the Wizards by defending her son’s actions on and off the court…. The term “knucklehead” became synonymous with those Wizards teams, to the point where Pamela McGee spoke with Washington Post columnist Mike Wise to defend her son and tell the world JaVale “is not a knucklehead.”

In reply, Charles Barkley was quoted at the time saying, “I’m so disappointed in JaVale McGee. He has not gotten better as a player. Now, he’s just doing stupid stuff. When your mom has to tell people you’re not a knucklehead, you probably are a knucklehead.”

That sounds like a reality show to me.

When I last ran the numbers (Tuesday, I think), his PPA in Boston was 37. Poor shooting and a lot of turnovers. His usage is down in Boston.

The latest is that Crawford doesn't think he belongs in this thread. :roll:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wiz ... ashington/

Crawford is on his third team in three seasons, but he had the best games of his career in Washington, where the Wizards gave him the freedom to expand his game, play big minutes and take as many questionable shots as he wanted. The end was undeniably sour and could’ve possibly been avoided if Crawford was willing to accept a role as an instant offense sixth man. But now Crawford is denying that his stint with the Wizards ever happened.

The Wizards will have a reunion with Crawford on Sunday at TD Garden, but when reporters in Boston asked him about playing his former team, Crawford responded on Saturday with a question of his own.

“Who?” Crawford said, before adding, “I don’t recall playing for Washington.”


He is averaging 8.2 points and has one start in 22 appearances for the Celtics, who are currently holding on to the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference. But while catching amnesia about his time with the Wizards, Crawford did acknowledge that the environment is much different in Boston.

“Just the seriousness it takes every day. The players we have are different. It’s a blessing to be here and learn from the best,” Crawford said.
Too high to get over; too low to get under. We're stuck in the middle, and the pain is thunder.

If I were Crawford I'd be pissed too. Another asset collected, wasted, and traded for nothing. Another example of how incompetent this team’s front office really is.
