Emir Preldzic with two blocks on Rafa Martinez of Power E. Valencia in EuroLeague play. Washington obtained the NBA rights to european star Emir Preldzic in the Antawn Jamison trade with Cleveland. The 6'9" Small Forward recently signed an extension with his current club (Fenerbahce Ulker). The contract includes a buy-out clause in case Preldzic wants to play in the NBA. Recently, Preldzic has been playing more minutes in the Top-16 playoffs for Fenerbache Ulker, averaging over 22 minutes a game with 12.3 points on 60% shooting, with 3.8 rebounds and 3 assists per game. But perhaps the reason he is playing more minutes is because of his improved defense, as illustrated in this video.

Gilbert Earns Playing Time in Orlando with his Defense

42

Just goes to show what good coaching can do... Edit by rook6980: I thought this deserved a bump to the front page. Good find pk24. Very interesting comments from Arenas on how he is playing defense differently because Dwight Howard is back there protecting him. The question is, could the Wizards change their defensive philosophy with McGee back there? I think this needs some discussion.

Ok, this is just hilarious. In the interest of full disclosure, SB Nation does have a business relationship with Comcast; and this is a commercial for Comcast services.... but that's not why I posted it.... I just think this is very, very funny. Plus - I love seeing a major media company making fun of LeBron.
