I am the NBA editor for SBNation.com and the lead editor at Bullets Forever. Phrases like "The Wizards' Thru is the Spurs' Motion Weak" make way too much sense to me.

Martell will play tonight

How Ernie Grunfeld should be judged

It's not about his performance this year; it's about whether he is the right man to maximize the team's assets for the future.

Mike Wise calls for Ernie to stay

On a playoff-or-bust edict from his owner since training camp, out of injury alibis and facing the prospect of no postseason for a sixth straight spring, the oft-slammed team president launched a deep three-pointer in late October.

Wiz gain no ground despite win

The Wizards won on Wednesday. That's good! But so did a lot of other teams in their range.

The cheapest, most adorable NBA player

Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo really likes saving money.

Wiz do enough to top Jazz, 104-91

The Wizards didn't always look great against the lowly Utah Jazz, but they did enough to come away with a comfortable victory.

Joakim Noah is keeping the Bulls afloat

The Bulls' center has been his team's life vest, singlehandedly propping up an otherwise-mediocre squad with his defense and high-post playmaking. Elsewhere: a look at two young guards being stretched beyond their comfort zones and much more.

Wittman on mid-range shots

"So you’re saying that a 15-foot open look is not good? "You take open shots. You take open shots. Where they are is dictated by what the defense does. If you predicate what kind of shot you’re going to take not based on what you’re doing reading the defense, you’re not going to get good shots. I just worry about goods shots. You know what? Those numbers you can stick… alright? You know, all you analytical people that take that… You take good shots, that’s the most important thing. Maybe we’re not taking good midrange shots, maybe we’re taking contested ones. I understand the numbers are there for a reason, we look at the numbers, but to sit there and… We got a good, open shot we’re taking, I don’t care where it is."

A great question posed by Kyle Weidie. Not sure what I think of this answer.

This is how you throw a lob pass

Somehow, this was completed.

Wittman: Otto to D-League could happen in future

The Wizards' coach left open the possibility that the Wizards' 2013 first-round pick might spend time with the Iowa Energy.

Standings update: Comfortably in fifth

Where do the Wizards stand in terms of playoff positioning? Despite a long winning streak, not much ground is being made up.

Threes upon threes upon threes upon threes.

Reliving the end of Wizards-Raptors

Because a game that good deserves a closer look.

Wall wills Wizards to triple OT win

In what was probably the game of the year, the Wizards, led by huge plays from John Wall, defeated the Toronto Raptors, 134-129.

Can the Wizards buck the losing trend?

The Raptors have had the Wizards' number this season. Will that change tonight?

Here's Lance Stephenson and $1 million cash

He's rich, you guys.

Wiz will sign Drew Gooden

He could be available as soon as Wednesday.

No Seraphin tonight either

Good time for small ball.

Can the Wizards maintain their playoff seed?

Are the Wizards in danger of missing the playoffs? Probably not, but falling to No. 7 or No. 8 seems like a decent possibility. The good news? The schedule is pretty easy.

J.R. Smith is messing with people's headbands now

He's found a new target to attack.

Report: Wiz likely to sign Drew Gooden to 10-day

Thoroughly uninspiring if true.

Nene has sprained MCL, likely out 6 weeks

That'll still keep him out for the majority of the regular season.
