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.

Wilbon: Arenas Must Go

5

Wilbon dropped the hammer, although in the same article he talked about the "nice swingman skills" of Yi. He also loved the Ike Austin signing, but I digress. I still wouldn't trade Arenas for scraps. Why can't he just shape up??

The Wizards and 9/11/01

Here's an interesting trivia question for you: What was the biggest headline in Washington DC on the morning of September 11, 2001? Like everyone, I remember exactly where I was when the first...

Xavier Henry?

I think we've talked about him before, but here's an update from Memphis.

Package Gil for Melo?

Surely we could put SOMETHING together and at least give it a shot.

"...Arenas, one league source said, has privately bristled that Wall has become the face of the franchise so fast..." If true, Rut roh.

Arenas to Lakers??

8

You guys have got to admit this is fun to dream about. Gilbert for Walton or Vujacic and Odom? Sign me up! I don't think the Lakers would do it, but anyways. Here's the section on Gilbert by Sam Smith, if you don't feel like scrolling down: "I’ve long mentioned LeBron as a possibility for the Lakers, and you already hear rumbles of Andrew Bynum being available. Of course, he’s had injury problems, but he is a real center and post player, a rarity in this NBA. Bosh has been rumored to L.A., also, with Bynum a sign and trade possibility. But in watching the Lakers win the championship, many things stood out. Namely, in the end, it was a risky acquisition, Ron Artest, who made the difference, and there’s a need for a point guard and scoring even though Derek Fisher hit some big shots once again. But he is 36 in August. So could/would the Lakers put together something for Gilbert Arenas? We hear all this stuff now how the new Wizards owner is becoming close with Arenas, but the Wizards know they will never get the most out of No. 1 pick John Wall as long as Arenas and his monstrous personality are around. They’d love to move on. Certainly the biggest obstacle for anyone is those four big years left on his deal. If I were the Lakers, I’d go for LeBron or Bosh. But if Kobe did not want that kind of ego and personality around, Arenas may make sense. He is from L.A., he’s been a huge scorer in the league at point guard and really is more a tweener guard, which fits Phil Jackson’s two guard front in the triangle. Jackson’s never needed a classic, true point guard. Just to get rid of Arenas and his money, you figure the Wizards would take some combination of Sasha Vujacic and Luke Walton and a sign-and-trade for someone else, maybe even Lamar Odom. Maybe even have the owner drive Arenas there. No one’s better dealing with troubled players than Jackson and Arenas puts 20 more points into the game. Now Fisher can come off the bench in fewer minutes, which would fit better. And now you keep Bynum, which gives them size and more scoring."

Worse: Arenas or Haynesworth?

I can't believe what an insult to humanity Albert Haynesworth is, but the question has to be asked: Which signing was worse in retrospect, Gilbert Arenas or Albert Haynesworth? Who will be cut or...

No to Melo and 2010 is better

I gotta say that it's annoying me to hear people constantly refer to Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony as the big fish of next year's free agency. I'm going to skip any detailed look at Durant,...

Wall a bad fit?

I personally thought this article kind of sucked, but thought you all would want to weigh in. The bottom line is that Gilbert is too much of an unknown to pass on the best player in the draft.

This deserves a separate thread. Great read, and I totally agree. I hope Gilbert can regain his All-Star status. This story was completely blown out of proportion.

They don't need to void his contract. As long as the NBA suspends Arenas, for say two years, he will collect no salary. There is more than one way to drive him out of the league.

Was wondering if this is correct from a poster on CNNSI. Does the contract come off the books while Gilbert is suspended?
