A few years back, the Washington Redskins weren’t the laughingstock of the Washington D.C. sports scene. It was the Washington Wizards.
The last few days have been quite an adventure for the Washington Wizards. The Eastern Conference’s current 3-seed lost to Boston in somewhat convincing fashion on Sunday, and appeared to be well on their way towards returning the favor Monday night until the Celtics mounted a fourth quarter rally that eventually pushed the game into
The Washington Wizards appeared to be running away from the Celtics on Monday night, leading 92-76 going into the fourth quarter at the Verizon Center in DC. Then, yours truly pretty much jinxed the whole thing by writing this, and essentially declaring the game to be over. Almost immediately, the Wizards began coughing up the
The Washington Wizards have a solid mix of aging veterans and young, talented players on their roster, which means that some guys are fathers and some are bachelors.

Since the internet has been a tizzy about Paper magazine’s recent cover shoot of Kim Kardashian, someone finally decided to ask Kris Humphries about them. Because if there’s one man’s opinion who needs to be heard, it’s Kim’s husband of 72 days. Rather than get bogged down in the life of the Kardashians, or maybe
The NBA has quickly made it a tradition to make their Christmas games special by having the teams dress in one-off alternate Christmas jerseys.

The Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls are playing in the first preseason game for both teams tonight, and they wasted no time producing a sequel to the Jimmy Butler-Nene tussle from last year’s playoffs (Nene was ejected for his role). This time, some jawing between Butler and Paul Pierce (who, we should note, wasn’t even
While most of the basketball world is transfixed on LeBron James’ puzzling hairline, Washington Wizards forward Martell Webster showed up to media day on Monday sporting some sort of mohawk-looking thing. Webster, whose career has been a major disappointment after being the 6th overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft (out of high school), is
Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat is back in his native country of Poland for the offseason and enjoying some leisurely time with his “puppy,” which actually happens to be a gigantic pet pig. Gortat put his swine on a leash and took it for a stroll through a shopping center as he went to pick
In lieu of the rescheduling of Lady Gaga’s May 15th concert at the Verizon Center in D.C. for a potential Game 6 of the Wizards-Pacers series, we thought this Best Buy commercial from last year featuring Washington’s PG John Wall and music from Gaga couldn’t be any more timely.

The Chicago Bulls are in a 2-0 hole to the Washington Wizards and mightily need a win in Game 3 tonight. That might explain why Joakim Noah, this year’s NBA Defensive Player of the Year, was getting a few extra shots during this morning’s shoot-around.
