Charlotte Observer list of top 100 NBA players

+

For those who love lists, this is a good one. Wall and Beal are favorably ranked, imo. Nice to see. Also check out Monroe vs. Gortat.

Worthy and Scott doing their Nick Young impersonations. Pretty funny. Gotta love Nick.

Ric Bucher's thoughts on Wall Max

Interesting thoughts from Ric Bucher about the Wall max contract discussions and the new CBA. I agree with Ric here and that's why I'm fine with the max for Wall.

In the 2004-2005 season, the Wizards surprised everyone by going from 25 wins to 45 wins with a young exciting team. Since then, we have not been able to match the win total. Using my memory plus a...

The old basketball cards being posted has inspired me to do some youtube searching. Here's some nice video from 1989 featuring Jeff Malone, Ledell Eackles, Bernard King, John Williams (watch his passing and overall court awareness) with a cameo from Mark Alarie. It's possible that I attended this game, but can't remember for sure.

10 Games for Delonte

Surprised no one else has posted this. 10 games seems kind of light to me, but I guess the lack of offers this offseason is the real penalty for Delonte West.

GunGate - Its Getting Worse

From Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo Sports. Editor's Note: There's also this report from Peter Vescey, which if true, is not good...at all. On the bright side, he gave up on getting a million followers and started tweeting last night, if you can call that a bright side. For more coverage on this story, check out the Bog -Jake

In 8 minutes of playing time Wednesday night, Oleksei Pecherov had more assists (3) than shot attempts (2).

"They're not going to talk young and old,"

Editor's Note: One thing's clear about Flip; he's saying all the right things. It's uncanny even. Perhaps too uncanny. It's almost as if you wonder about his sincerity for a second. -Mike From the Washington Examiner: "They're not going to talk young and old," said Saunders of what he expects when practice begins. "They're going to talk team, and we're going to blend everybody together." I like the sound of it.

Washington, D.C.: Should the Wizards trade their lottery pick to Phoenix for the Suns medical staff? Michael Wilbon: Ha! Very funny. But this isn't a Shaq case. The Wizards medical staff is fabulous. The problem their primary player had, Gil Arenas, was of his own doing...ignoring the prescribed rehab to conduct his own wildcat rehab...which led to additional surgery.

Insert Rookie Center's Name Here From Indy Cornrows game summary: Roy Hibbert on the other hand only played 3:54 in the first half and didn't return. Within two minutes, Hibbert had four points and two fouls. One foul looked like a pretty good block, but I think Hibbert's reputation precedes him these days. Why didn't Roy return to the game? I don't want to hear about the best chance to win. The Pacers could not stop the Wiz. Maybe Roy's presence changes things on defense a little. If he fouls out, so be it. Sounds like our blog!
