Requiem for a 6-Seed - Andrew Sharp Recaps the Bobcats Game

+

"Congratulations, Bobcats. You swung hard and struck true for a Raptors-Bobcats series that might be the most NBA TV playoff series of all time. But this battle had one true hero. One knight. One warrior prince who brought down his sword at the moment of truth and refused to call plays, or timeouts, or do pretty much anything that could’ve been useful. Randy Wittman was a lion, as always. After the battle for the 6-seed, he roars for eternity."

I think athletically, it will be the most athletic team that we’ve probably had," Karl said after a light practice Friday. "In the same sense, you need brains, you need fundamentals and you need execution. The youth of the team is refreshing, but there’s also some growing pains that come with youthful players.

George Karl, replying to a question about the makeup of his team with the recent addition of Javale McGee. I almost laughed out loud when I read it.

Jamison Insists Players More Unified Than in '98

This is a bad sign. Jamison is one of the few active NBA players who remembers the last lockout. This leads me to believe that we could be in for the long haul.

The Worst Owner in the NBA

I read this today and it blew my mind. I can't believe that an NBA owner would do such a thing. Thank God we have Ted! Can you imagine Ted doing something like this? Seriously?

Frank Hanrahan - Saunders Has Lost Wizards

I think Hanrahan makes some really good points. Although I'm not ready to give up on Flip yet, I am starting to believe that he isn't doing enough to keep this team motivated.

Breakdown of Lazy Blatche's Terrible Defense

Someone on another blog just pointed this out to me. It's a couple of weeks old, but it perfectly demonstrates how lazy and uninvolved Andray Blatche can sometimes be. We saw a lot of recurrences of that version of Blatche in the Raptors game last Wednesday.

Wizards Forced to Watch Film of Their Embarrassing Loss to the Raptors

Flip forces his team to watch the film of the Raptors loss, and offers his criticism throughout. Some players had their feelings hurt from the criticism. NICE!

"Well, he doesn't play for me. He plays for the coach, so I'm not reacting to those situations at all," Grunfeld said. "He is under contract, and if he wants to get paid, he has to play. I don't have much reaction about that situation."

Wilbon Joins the "Blow it Up" Bandwagon

+

The most interesting part of the article to me is this: Yes, this even means moving the players you like, the absolute professionals who could easily wind up helping playoff teams elsewhere. Multiple teams want Antawn Jamison. Multiple teams want Butler. They're assets. Their new coaches and their new teammates are going to love them.

Flip Should Start a Defense-First Lineup

Flip should make a statement in the next game, to show everybody that his post-game rant was serious.  He should bench the "Big" 3 and make it clear that if you want on the court, you'll have to...

"If I thought I was doing a poor job and I thought maybe we should have been better, maybe it would have been different," Jordan said. "But we were not on the same page and this is not the team that everyone thinks it should be. If you’re going to do it for marketing, for fans, and for the media, that’s for the wrong things. Be honest and be sincere about where you are as a team. And as an organization. So it didn’t happen. And that’s how I feel about it." ... Jordan was asked if he believes Arenas can be the leader that Flip Saunders needs him to be for this team succeed, and he didn't exactly give him an endorsement. . . "He’s capable of leading them in scoring and he’s capable of leading them in having a presence that’s very competitive and that’s very contagious," Jordan said. "I don’t know if he can be a leader -- I just don’t know that, I’m not saying he can’t be, I just don’t know if he can be."

Eddie Jordan discussing the Wizards both this season and last. To clarify, the first quote was about the Wizards last season, while the second one about Gilbert was concerning his potential as a leader now. I have to say, I partially agree with Eddie on the first quote, and fully agree with him on the second.

Excerpts From Tim Donaghy's New Book

13

I'm surprised that nobody has linked to this yet. I've been hearing about it nonstop for the past two days. Even though Donaghy has no credibility, I believe him because he is confirming what I have suspected for a long time. He also gives very specific details that would take a lot of creativity to make up. On a related note, if anybody saw that play two nights ago where LeBron James barreled into Chris Bosh late in the 4th quarter, while the Cavs were attempting a furious comeback, and saw it get called a blocking foul on Bosh, then like me you would have to agree that there is such a thing in the NBA as star treatment. Bosh had positioned himself early and had textbook footwork on the play, and he was clearly outside of the no-charge semi-circle. No matter, the refs gave the call to the NBA's golden boy. David Stern ought to be ashamed of himself.
