Wizardsí Arenas Nears Return From Knee Surgery
 
In the article it also mentions some stuff on Etan Thomas, I can't wait to see agent zero back with us, and hopefully he will be back to his normal form.

I had free tickets to see Wizards vs Bucks, and they need Arenas and Caron back. I was so bored. It looked like the type of game you see at the park, only with dunks.

I dunno about that, last night they shot and made a bunch of 3's especially Antawn Jamison.

They're so tired. Butler and Arenas out for extended periods of time with AD, DeShawn and Jamison banged up plus they are trying to stay below the luxury tax so they aren't bringing in fresh bodies. They have been all playing mad minutes. Once Arenas is back and they can cut down on some minutes they'll start pepping up.

I don't understand how Antawn Jamison hasn't been hurt yet, he's playing like 40 minutes each game, and he's 30 years old, that probably not going to be good for his future.

He's banged up to death. He has a chronic bad back and I think some knee issues but they have been so undermanned that he just played through most of it. He is their team MVP this year without a doubt even though he is only the third best on the team. Dallas blew it when they traded him away for Stackhouse. What a coup for DC that became. Let's see, we'll give you a constant malcontent who just wants to score points and couldn't care less about winning and you send us your team leader who does about 4 different things well and is respected by most everyone in the league.

Now if only AJ could play a lick of defense.

One thing that I don't understand is why Olesky Pecherov doesn't get more playing time, in the limited playing time he gets he's played pretty well, he can shoot, handle the ball, pass, iffy on defense, but he's a good young player that could help out and give Antawn Jamison a break every now and then.

Jordan is clearly weary of youngsters. McGuire almost never plays but seems to do well when given a chance. The biggest problem with him and Pecherov is that they really are lacking in specific areas. Pechrov can't play a lick of defense and McGuire has no offensive game to speak of. They are pretty big holes in those regards. Plus the 'Zards 2-6 are pretty solid. AD and Stevenson can play, Brenda has been better than one would imagine and Jamison is really a nice player. Body X starts for Butler and they have some decent production there and their pieces have been decent Mason and Young to be specific (the latter being the only youngster getting any serious time).

There's not a lot of minutes for Pecherov and McGuire I guess.

Recently Dominic McGuire has been getting a lot more minutes and Andray Blatches have been decreasing, interesting.

The Wizards played one of their best games of the year last night against the Pistons. I was at the game and it was great to watch 40 minutes of solid, fundamental basketball.

What do you expect? They are the wizards for goodness sake.

(I know it's an old post, but I couldn't resist.)

You guys should follow a REAL team:
[url=http://www.nba.com/celtics/]Celtics.com: The official website of the Boston Celtics.[/url]

The wizards should be thankful they are in the East, where else could they be a 5 seed when barely over .500?

I guess it feels pretty good for you to finally talk about the Celtics as a real team again.
