The Wizards are in the playoffssssss!!!! So now what?

With the #Wizards now officially a playoff team (!!!!), @JoeGlo1 speculates on what’s to come over the next 2 weeks.

On Wednesday night the Wizards celebrated as if it had been years since they last were a meaningful basketball team. The celebration continued from the court onto #WizardsTwitter and then into the locker room where a giddy bunch of NBA players young, old, and wise were sporting shit eating grins from ear to ear.

From a fan’s perspective there were some mixed emotions to their celebration…In one…

Six years. Calculated as roughly 2200 days and some change. An ample amount of time to deem a generation. An epoch. For the Wizards particularly, an epoch of memories desired not to be memories. A scope of torturous turmoil and hardship only a hapless sap like…

The Quick and the Dead: John Wall’s punishing hesitation move

John Wall’s punishing hesitation move is so hip that our man @ZainZ24 had to rhyme about it. Enjoy this one y’all.

When you look at a player like John Wall, the first thing you think of is him as an athlete. You marvel at his quickness. His speed in the open court makes your jaw drop.

[original image via Abdullah’s iOS] It took Drew Gooden three games and 16 minutes of burn to finally collect his first points as a member of DC’s pro ball team, an open deep corner two via Al Harrington kick out pass (re-looping 6 second video capture below). Gooden’s inaugural bucket seemingly boosted him and the second…

Oh, we deserved this victory, we really did. Not just the team, but us, the fans.

This game was shaping up to be just like every game against a mediocre team at the Verizon Center all season. Small stretches of dominance that made it seem like the Wizards would…
