If he's sentenced, do you think the Zards will void his contract?

Re: Arenas Stored Guns in Locker Room

Re: Arenas Stored Guns in Locker Room

The Wizards are definitely going to try and void the contract, and I think they have a solid chance, but it is by no means a cake walk. Remember, an Arbitrator overruled the NBA when they voided Sprewell's contract after choking his coach. Players Association will fight hard against it. Even if they can't I think there will likely be a buy-out or trade.

I've always been a big fan of Arenas, and it's tought to see this, although not unforeseeable. I think they'll try to void Gil's contract and end up shipping out Twan this year as well. Although I'd hate to see Twan in a Cavs uniform, if we could get Z's expiring contract, J.J. Hickson, and a first back, I'd be alright with that. That would leave us with a ton of cap room and we might be able to attract one of the top tier free-agents. Sad to see us back at the rebuilding stage. I've had to go through this so many times over the past few decades.

Thats what I hate about basketball. Get a Lebron or a Kobe and you're set for a decade. It's not like other sports like hockey, baseball, and football where you need to, and are usually able to, find a lot more parts to field a competitive team.

Still the Wizards were stupid to trade the fifth pick for Mike Miller and Randy Foye. Anyway hope they can become competitive again but as I said before, it's extremely difficult to field a competitive team in basketball.

Bigger embarrassment for DC sports in 2009-Wizards or Redskins?

You forgot the Nats! It would have been an ever bigger embarrassment if they hadn't signed Strasburg.

I'd say the biggest embarrassment was the Redskins. Sure the Wiz are playing badly, but the sideshow created by one player's stupidity is the main reason they are such a joke right now. The 2009 Redskins were just a top to bottom organizational fail on so many levels.

Other than spelling their name wrong on the jersey I don't remember much that the Nats did to be an embarrassment other than play poorly...watch out for them in 2012 though! And they signed Pudge Rodriguez who's a playoff magnet.

At least the Redskins are taking steps to turn the franchise around. Hopefully the Wizards will do the same soon. I wonder how long until Leonsis takes over?

Well the win-loss thing is what I was talking about. For much of the season they were pacing to be the worst team ever.

Leonsis is taking over, right? I know he had first right of refusal for majority ownership when Abe died.

Redskins, it's harder to be embarrased about something you don't care about. Still even factoring that out, this was easily the worst season for the Redskins in a while. If it hadn't been for the hiring's of Allen and Shanahan then the Redskins would basically be dead to rights.

The Bullets should be able to turn this ship around, they'll be freeing up A LOT OF MONEY when Arenas' contract is voided. They could get a few good players with that savings.

Re: Arenas Stored Guns in Locker Room

Arenas reaches out to kids in an op-ed today in the Washington Post. Hopefully he's sincere. I wish him the best moving forward because I believe in second chances. But I'm done with him as a Washington Wizard.

I hope you're right. I would have rather heard him say something like "we'll evaluate Gilbert's status once the season is over and the suspension is lifted."

Re: Arenas Stored Guns in Locker Room

They're waiting to see if he gets jail time. If a year, they can void the contract and he won't have much of a chance with his players' union-backed appeal. If a short or no jail sentence, he could serve immediately and physically be back for the start of the next season, giving his appeal a better chance.
