  • Washington Wizards Might Be Facing the End of a Great Ride in NBA Playoffs

    May 12 (Washington Post) -- We have been there from the start, have watched them grow and are eager to see what happens next. The Washington Wizards have our attention. And even if the Wizards played their final home game of the season Sunday night in a 95-92 loss to the Indiana Pacers, what a season it was. Of course, the Wizards have at least one more game. They will face the Pacers on Tuesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on the Pacers' home turf. "We know what we have to do," Wizards Coach Randy Wittman gamely said after Game 5. "We've played them four times. There aren't any secrets. . . . Three of the four games have been dogfights. We're in the fight. Now we've just got to win that fight." The reality is, though, that by rallying from a 19-point second-half deficit, the Pacers may have turned out the lights at Verizon Center. In NBA playoff history, only eight teams have

  • Arenas Apologizes After Being Fined By Wizards for Faking Injured Knee

    By Mike Wise Oct. 13 (Washington Post) -- "I screwed up again." - Gilbert Arenas, after admitting he lied to his coach. Succinct. Pointed. Really, of all the epitaphs I've ever considered, "I screwed up again" pretty much says it all. What, you wanted him to be the morose, bearded, sullen guy who showed up at media day like Joaquin Phoenix once showed up on David Letterman? How depressing. You honestly thought the man was going to go an entire season being a model employee? You believed Mr. Mischief would not put his foot in his mouth about something before April? Ha. He couldn't even get out of the pre-season without incurring people's wrath, without being judged and told to leave Washington for a fresh start. Look, I'm not here to endorse Arenas lying to Flip Saunders about an injury so his teammate, Nick Young, could play in a meaningless exhibition game Tuesday night.
