This was SportsCenter's TOP play
Great ****in' game yesterday. First time the Wiz have won 2 games in a row all season and first time they beat a team with a winning record.
You know what's next right fellas? Next game in Milwaukee......
“I just wanted to say to the fans … in D.C. and across the nation, they’ve been great for us, cheering us on. At away games they show up in the masses and at home they really made it feel like a home-field advantage. We said this when I was in college, ‘We got a chance to sit at the dinner table and experience success and it was a good meal. But now we want to go back to get dessert.’ We’ll be ready to get dessert next year.”
Robert Griffin’s last words at the press conference.
Wow, 2 in a row. Break out the bunting and let's have a parade.
Got a free NBA package preview from DirecTv...watching tonight.
John Wall is great on the fast break. He is finding open teammates with ease. In the half court game though I don't see him breaking his defender that often.
Kevin Seraphin showed me a little something around the basket. And Yi Jianlian has a nce shot.
We might even get a road win! I'll check in later.
0-20. Man, the wizards suck on the road.
We'll grind that axe, for a long time!
Eh, we suck. No good shooters. No defense. Maybe I won't watch any more games.
who would u guys want as a new coach?
Ultimately basketball is a players sport and usually the quality of the coach won't have dramatic effects if the roster sucks.
Our team is still really bad but it's more and more obvious that Flip just can't communicate or relate with this team. He came here to coach Arenas, Butler, Jamison and Mike Miller. He really has no intentions of coaching John Wall, Nick Young, Blatche and McGee.
I'd like to see what Cassell can do. He'd at least be an energetic coach who can relate with the current team. Let him grow as a coach with the youth of this team.

Well that was disappointing. What a terrible effort. And why was Wall out for so long to start the 4th? I assumed he was hurt and then Flip brings him back in with about 5:30 left with us down by 16? Flip has to go.
Two steps forward, one and a half steps back is to be expected with a rebuilding team. It's frustrating now but I'm not worried about it. This time two years from now we'll be watching a good team and the only thing we'll remember about this season is how it ended up getting us Harrison Barnes or Jared Sullinger .

nbadraft.net now has Derrick Williams, sophomore PF out of Arizona as the #1 pick in their mock draft. Now that site doesn't have the greatest reputation around the internet, but I thought that was really interesting. I had heard absolutely nothing about him or seen anything about him being anything but a borderline lottery pick. Here's his nbadraft.net profile:
Anyway, just finished watching the game. Now I haven't been one to ***** about Flip so much, but man. What horrible game management tonight. He's a lame duck coach if there ever was one.
Some other notes, Yi is a great athlete and a HORRIBLE basketball player. Wall was on pace to have a monster game. I was actually thinking about calling Cowherd about his stat line until Flip swooped in and ****ed up the whole flow of the game. I thought Wall had a much better game on D than he has lately, but he still gives up way to many wide open looks trying to cheat on possible steals. McGee is McGee. Nick Young was eh. Rashard Lewis had his worst game as a Wizard. Al Thornton is a bum. Booker and particularly Seraphin both gave nice efforts, as always (shame they couldn't get on the floor for more than 5 minutes apiece.) And...drum roll please....I thought Blatche had a really solid game. You could see he was making a concerted effort to take it strong to the rim and not settle for that bull**** between the legs three times, Caron Butler-esque fadeaway crap. And he hustled his ass of on the defensive side of the ball. I missed the Jazz game so I can't comment, but on the games I've seen, this was his best of the year imo.
So what's the record for road losses?
