There really is no un-awkward way to make a pimp post... [Aug. 7th, 2006|03:46 am]

...So I guess I'll just dive right in.

I just started a new community for international basketball. It's called worldhoops.

Why am I posting to washington_wiz with info about this community, you ask?

Well, because Peter Ramos, the Wizards center, is playing for the Puerto Rican national team.

(Plus there's Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison who are both playing for Team USA--also fair game in worldhoops.)

Why should you care about international basketball and the FIBA World Championships specifically?

For one thing it's basketball during the NBA's off season.

For another, it's a fun way to watch your favorite players interact on new teams and with new teammates without any shuffling of the NBA rosters.

Finally, as with the World Cup and the Olympics, it's always fun to watch international sports. They tie into a sense of pride and national identity (often) without the ugliness that usually accompanies global politics.

So come join in at worldhoops.

(If this post isn't allowed in this comm, feel free to delete it.)

Cross-posted all over the place.

I missed the win over the Bulls today, and I read in a recap of the game that Caron pulled a "Karl Malone," where he dunked with one hand and put the other hand behind his head! I was trying to find a picture of it online, but couldn't come up with one. If anyone finds a pic of this online, please post it because I'd love to see it.

Now that the team is in the stretch run, and with a lot of remaining games on the road, what spot does everyone think the Wiz will end up in for the playoffs? At the moment, the team is in 5th, half a game above Indiana, I believe. I have a feeling they'll end up in 5th or 6th, and I think that if the team matched up with Cleveland or Indiana in the playoffs, that wouldn't be too bad. Seeing how badly they play on the road and how well they do at MCI, it would be great to see them lock up the 4th seed, though.

"According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Arenas's 46 points were the most scored in 30 minutes or fewer of playing time since the 24-second shot clock was implemented in 1954." Full article can be found here.

Keep it rolling, guys.

Gilbert's an all-star after all [Feb. 10th, 2006|12:02 pm]

Common sense prevails - David Stern has named Gilbert to the All-Star team as a replacement for Jermaine O'Neal. There's still no excuse for the Eastern conference coaches leaving him out in the first place.

It's hard to believe that the season has turned out this way. The team looks so lost out there, every night seeming as if they've never played together and looking like they have no motivation to win whatsoever. It's just so disappointing for this to be happening after they had such a great season last year.
