Vote 4 Nacho Gilbert Arenas - Truth About ItSlam Online
….has a great interview with Antonio Daniels, which includes a YouTube of AD throwing a two-handed dunk in AK-47’s grill (when he was with the Blazers).

AD Quotable: Until we’re healthy our job is to continue to win basketball games. I’m not a prediction guy. Even if we were healthy I wouldn’t give a prediction. I believe in everybody in that locker room and I feel like we can accomplish a lot.”

….has posted their preview of the Washington Wizards. What are you waiting for? Get over there and read it.

Best Line: “The Wizards are a collection of fierce competitors. But what makes this team so likable is not only the dynamism of their on-court style but the charm of their off-court antics. Beard growing contests, 80’s themed birthday parties and unashamedly opinionated blogging consistently remind me that professional sports, at the end of the day, should be about having fun. Winning is fun, but so is doing impersonations of players from around the league or developing a rating system for an opponent’s swagger.”

Quote of the Day: “Eye, my a**! Is it permanent?”

….also has a preview of the 08-09 Wizards. There are few teams that writer Adam Sweeney pities, the Wizards are one of them. And yes, Sweeney threw out that “rarely” used M.A.S.H. term, suggesting that the Wizards get tattoos of the acronym for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital on their arms.

Best Line: “At this point, Eddie Jordan should have a season of “Survivor” named after him. The man seems to always find a way to keep his team above water. It won’t come quite as easy this season in a much improved Eastern Conference. But I’m not going to bet against a coach who has the longest tenure in the East.
