I am old enough to remember the glory days of Brent Price, Tim Legler and Chris Webber, although not really the championship glory of 1977. I was alive, but I think I was watching Orioles games at age 3.

I have known the suffering that was Kwame Brown. Ledell Eckles is my favorite player of all time next to Michael Jordan. That's not to forget such highlights and lowlights as God Shamgod, Big Georghe, Rod Strickland, Googs, Kwame, Chris Whitney, Michael Adams and Juwan Howard.

I look forward to participating in endless hypothetical trade scenarios and hopelessly optimistic predictions with my friends at Bullets Forever.

The handle "unselds" is one I have had for years. Big Wes epitomizes everything Bullets and Wizards. Rookie of the Year, MVP, and quite possibly the worst GM in NBA history, including that terrible trade of Chris Webber for Mitch Richmond and Otis Thorpe. We Wizards fans, we laugh, we cry, and ultimately we will triumph.

"My health is good. Last year it was just a crazy year, shortened season, limited time for rest. I've never missed any time for my knee, never had any type of issue with my knee. I played three and a half years straight without missing a game. it was just one of those wacky things that happened. It happened all around the league last year so I'm really not concerned about it. I resume basketball activity this week, so it's been a progression, so by mid next month I'll be full time ready to go."

Why Jan Vesely, Chris Singleton and Cartier Martin will be Champs Someday

Who the hell would have thought that so many former Wizards would become champions in the last two years??Juwan Howard, Mike Miller and Ronny Turiaf did it last night with the Miami Heat, joining...

Tugging at The King's Robe

As much as we here at Bullets Forever hate the nail biting, lame tipping, traveling LeBron James, there can be no doubt that he has proven he can win. The Heat are now the undisputed champions. And...

Guess the prospect

Harrison Barnes could be a Paul Pierce or a Calbert Chaney. Brad Beal could be Ray Allen or Jarvis Hayes. MKG could be (a shorter) Scotty Pippen or (a much shorter) Jared Jefferies. Let's take a...

Visions of Grandeur: The Guards

It's clear to me that we have absolutely no consensus on this board about who the best guard would be to take at #3 in the draft. Much of this can be attributed to the fact that the college game...

Running the lottery treadmill

1

Interesting piece on how acquiring too much lottery talent can turn into a problem, and how MJ is the poster child. Also points out that the Spurs are successful because they combine their lottery pick with smart 2nd rounders they stick with and key free agents. That's something we already know, but I liked the article.

Dwight Howard: Selling Your Soul to the Devil

So I'm not even sure I'm advocating this, because Dwight Howard is everything to me that Tony Kornheiser says he is. He's a diva. He can't shoot free throws. He hasn't won anything. He has a...

Funny look at why all the lotto picks suck!

Pretty funny. Kind of how I feel about all of them. Just didn't see any stars in this year's NCAA on par with previous years.

T-Rob wants to be "Iced Up"

2

This kind of ruins your rep as a humble, hard worker in my book. Makes you look kind of like an idiot. Overreaction? Maybe, but makes it a little easier to pass on him. We sure do need rebounding though. This just surprised me because he has been marketed as an angel.

Batum wants out!

The only scary thing about this is that Ernie might overreach to win any bidding war pre-emptively. This guy might really be right for the Wiz.

The Last Burrito

So awhile back I wrote a post saying it wouldn't be terrible if the Three Burritoes were backups on this team. The problem was they were starters because we had nothing better. Well, the dust is...

Fun with Mock Drafts, the totally premature edition

3

My first reaction was, "What, we got No. 2 like the Redskins??" Some other interesting nuggets, such as Beal jumps into the Top Five and Barnes is ... No. 5. Sullinger falls to No. 10. This one has the Wiz picking MKG over TRob and Beal. Who is the "second best?" I could see this mock happening. Would anyone think reaching on McAdoo or Zeller would be the way to go if we pick No. 4 or No. 5?

Ronny, Come back to us!

Of course he wants to play in South Beach, but boy would I love to have this intelligent, energetic big back on our team.

Trading our lottery pick?

Thought this would be a fun debate since there is so much frustration that we can't trade our trash. Which players would you trade our trash and our lotto pick to get? Let's assume, for the sake of...

Let's rant!!!

I'm really pissed off right now. We get a couple years of happiness in the Agent Zero era, and now we're back to being the most pathetic, dysfunctional, hopeless, clueless team in the league. We...

Keep the Three Burritoes

Every day we have a new post about trade scenarios for Andray Blatche, Nick Young and JaVale McGee. They all sound reasonable, but it got me thinking. Before they were shipped out, Antawn Jamison, C...

Playing Apologist to my Buddy in Orlando

Chuck and Shaq rag on the Wizards some more

3

Barkley always hates the Wizards, but this is our national perception. Nobody mentioned how well we're "following the plan," in case you're wondering.

Michael Lee is a meanie!

6

I agree these three will never get it, but I don't think it's necessary to get rid of all three. I would re-sign McGee, hopefully trade Nick, and take anything including a bag of chips for Blatche.

Kevin Garnett?

I'm going to get slammed for this, but I think it's fun to think about. Would you want to sign an aging Kevin Garnett to play two years for this team?

I like this for the Wizards. Good way to get in practice with good players, avoid injury and work with a great coach.

Lockout could rob us of Dwight Howard blockbuster??

WHat, what, what? I never thought of this. If there is no season, there is no chance for Orlando to trade Howard for assets. Good for the Wizards, or bad? Discuss.

Vlade likes Jan

Could Vlade come here and be a big man coach? I'd like that. "He's not a typical European player. He's quite dynamic. If he works on his shooting, he could become a regular member of the NBA All-Star team," said retired NBA veteran Vlade Divac of Serbia, a manager in the Partizan Belgrade basketball organization with which Veselý played for the past two seasons.
