The Day After April Fools

The Bullets Forever exclusive about Gilbert Arenas becoming the next Player/Coach/GM of the Wizards was just an April Fools' Day joke, right? Not so fast, we've come across an "exclusive"...

Gil changing the plan? (Shocker)

14
Mike Jones: Wait, huh? You might play in Memphis? "If I feel good, yeah." Mike Jones: But what happened to the original plan of no road games, only home games until next week at Cleveland? "I'm just going game-by-game. Just depending on what the trainer says tomorrow, see how my knee feels." Mike Jones: But wouldn't it be more appealing to play on TNT against the Cavs? "Not really, I'm not here for the show right now. I'm here to work on my rehab, not to play up to the crowd and the hype right now." Mike Jones: Is your knee feeling OK? Has something changed? "Nope, I feel good. No complaints. Not yet." Crazy considering just 15 minutes earlier, Ed Tapscott said Arenas would NOT play against Memphis because the plan was no back-to-backs and the team would rather have him for Thursday. "We set the perameter, no back-to-backs," Tap said. "This is a back to back so we'd rather have him on the back-side this time at home against Cleveland. So he won't play at Memphis." SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGH, nothing is ever simple, is it? ----------------------------------------------- [ I turned to my boy Mac G during the Wiz-Pacers game and said, "Gil looks antsy as hell....like he can't stand sitting on the bench after only playing one game." (or something to that effect). When Arenas dubbed himself as being "wishy-washy" to the DC Sports Bog, it really didn't even begin to describe how nutzo this dude is.....yep, the boy who cried wolf indeed.] [BONUS: Here's the video of Gilbert's chat with the media today. -Jake]

I talked to Tapscott about this 10 days ago and, while he didn't want to push Gilbert, he made it clear that it would certainly help the team formulate its off-season plans if they could look at Arenas for even a few games. Practice doesn't tell you enough. Gilbert is a hard guy to figure. But, even if he only plays in a handful of games, will certainly be helping the Wiz get a handle on his value. They assume that he is so talented that, if necessary, he could adapt his game __to a degree__ and still be extremely valuable. Pass more, etc. But they certainly want to see how much defense he can still play. I'm looking forward to going out to see his return.

Gilbert Arenas to Return Saturday?

16

Rumors about the possible return of Agent Zero on Saturday against the Pistons are flying all over the place....from Twitter, to Mr. Irrelevant, to the DC Sports Bog....... I don't believe a word of it. UPDATE: The DC Sports Bog's Dan Steinberg plays a game of cat and mouse with Gil. UPDATE: Gil talks to Mike Jones and Ivan Carter. As usual, nothing with the guy is easy. Also, Steinz transcribes Powerless Ed's press conference.

Hump Day Poll: Pick or JaVale

JaVale McGee or a draft pick?

Praise for JaVale McGee from a Kings Fan

15

A commenter on SacTown Royalty, twasserm, an obvious Kings fan and east coast dweller who went to Sunday's game, had some nice praise for JaVale McGee: If Javale McGee were on the Kings, we would all love him. He’s a skinny but really athletic big who plays with the same expression on his face that Donté has on his. A few calls went against him and he didn’t sulk or let the frustration affect how he played. When McCants hugged him on the break and McGee made a circus shot anyway, you could tell how much all of his teammates loved the guy. He’d be like last year’s Mikki Moore with better hands, upside, a future, and a rookie contract. If Washington is looking to unload salary this summer but wants to keep their draft pick, I would be thrilled if they’d give us McGee to take Etan Thomas’ contract. I might take Nick Young also (he’s what McCants would be if McCants were a few inches taller, a bit smarter of a player, and not a thug), but I’d be thrilled if they’d give us McGee. Of course, if McGee were traded just to get rid of Etan's undesirable contract, the brick coming out of all our butts would be mighty painful.

Butler's Hammy Likes Fluid

+

The update from Mike Jones of the Washington Times relates that the MRI Caron Butler had on his bothersome hamstring indicates a fluid build up. He's traveling on the four-game road trip, but doesn't expect to be back on the court "for a bit." No word on the cause. It could be anything from too much Mountain Dew, to partying at the Park, to a simple concentration of Tuff Juice due to lack of winning outlets for release, among other more plausible causes.

Brendan Haywood Back? Don't Count On It

+

The vision that always comes to my mind when I think about Songaila is walking into that locker room before a game and seeing him sitting at his stall calmly watching a tape of that night's opponent while reading over a scouting report. Meantime, some of the team's young guys are usually bouncing off the walls goofing off. I've always maintained that if Blatche and JaVale McGee really wanted to learn how to play the game, they'd study Songaila. Another thing that I respect about Songaila is that losing still hurts the guy. I can't say that about many of the players on this team. In fact, if you walk in that room after most games, you wouldn't know whether they won or lost.

Ivan Carter Is Leaving Us

Breaking news from Dan Steinberg and the DC Sports Bog: Wiz beat reporter, Ivan Carter, is getting out of the newspaper biz and into the television biz, but will still be local, landing a gig with Comcast Sports Net. Let Bullets Forever be some of the first to say congrats to Ivan and wish him well. Overall, he really provided us with top notch coverage of our Wiz. Michael Lee will be covering the beat for the rest of the season. Head over to the Sports Bog for more details.

Dominic McGuire has Plantar Fasciitis?

Yet Grunfeld, harboring DCO HOF-worthy steadfastness, resisted the marketing machinery. He kept his currently slumping Wiz team intact, knowing that full recoveries would lead to that winning tradition, built by Grunfeld et. al. He didn't give those a**holes Antawn. Not even if the referees fix the outcome completely will the Wizards hand-deliver the Cavaliers anything.

From what I hear, the Wizards aren't nearly as worried about their financial situation as people believe, and they think they can hang onto that high draft pick and add that player to their core of Jamison, Butler and Arenas.

Believe It When You See It According to an insider with legit knowledge of the situation, regardless of whatever mixed messages Arenas is sending about whether or not he's coming back, and despite the "no official time table" line that's given whenever a question is asked about Arenas and Haywood's returns, the Wizards expect to get both players back for roughly the final 15 games of the season. The plan is to limit both players to roughly 15 minutes a night and hold them out of any back-to-backs. The Wizards believe that such a final stretch run with the whole gang back together again will go a long way to getting the players back into a flow of playing with each other and also lay a foundation for next season. via Mike Jones - Wizards Outlet, Washington Times
