NBA Southeast Division Preview: Washington Wizards

As another NBA season nears, it’s time for our season previews. Rounding out the East, we head to the Southeast. Projected Conference Finish: 10th Best Move of Offseason: There isn’t one. Yeah, I said it. The Wizards made no offseason move that can be described as “best.” They overpaid for a backup center and extended a brittle shooting guard. They hired a bad coach. And...

Making some observations at the Wizards’ Friday night open practice

RICHMOND — The Washington Wizards held an open practice for fans inside the Siegel Center on Friday night. This wasn’t a behind-the-scenes look inside training camp. Players didn’t scrimmage. They didn’t even work through defensive drills, though defense has been the rallying cry for the upcoming season. Also, players stayed away from too much physical contact — […]

Top Stories of the Week: Wizards training camp begins, Mystics move up in the Draft

Things are fine. FINE! This week has been quite gloomy when you look outside. The skies are overcast and it’s often rained at various points throughout the day. It’s given me a quick reminder of last May when there was measurable rain for 15 straight days. We do need the rain, so in a way, I’m not complaining. But we may have to keep an eye on Tropical Storm Matthew, which...

Wizards Could Perform Team National Anthem Protest

With so little time to get together and a team largely comprised of unfamiliars, it’s hardly fair to criticize the Wizards for not having a concrete plan of what they’ll do during the National Anthem this season. They might do nothing, for the record. They might do the same thing they’ve always done, which is stand at attention, hands over their hearts or behind their backs...

John Wall after Wizards’ first practice of training camp: “I feel great”

RICHMOND — Like the rest of us, Marcin Gortat understood that John Wall would be limited in Wizards training camp. Knee surgery and rehabilitation can be a long process, and Wall is recovering from two procedures.

Nothing to see here: John Wall, Bradley Beal try to squash talk about on-court ‘dislike’

On Monday, Washington Wizards guard John Wall was asked how he would describe his relationship with backcourt mate Bradley Beal. “We’re just two competitive people,” Wall started off by saying.

The Washington Wizards will be sporting new alternate uniforms for the 2016-17 season, and they’re more fitting for the Bullets, with a pretty great “America” theme.
