Remember Wizards, Obama Lives in DC: Wiz-Bulls Recap

Updated: February 28, 2009
Barack Obama at the Wizards game - Truth About It.netHe came in cool wearing black and chewing gum.

The headlines today say that Obama should attend more Wizards games…..sure, why not?

But dammit if the Wizards shouldn’t give that kind of effort and energy all the time…..the guy only lives in the same city.

But props to the President….he sat court side, had himself a beer, and seemed to take a bit of heckling well (he was openly cheering for the Bulls).

[Check the game blog on Bullets Forever here]

Bullets on the Bullets:

  • Great ball movement in the first quarter — it was as if the Wizards had goals of patience and a rule that no one would hold onto the ball for more than two seconds.
  • Can’t say the same for the youth, although they did play well.
  • Javaris Crittenton didn’t asset himself on the game.
  • Nick Young, while he hit some very tough shots, still dribbles the ball waaaay too much. I wish he could learn to create in as few moves as possible, while being able to set up others. Right now, he’s a very one dimensional player and must improve his overall game to receive significant time next year.
  • Dominic McGuire continues to impress with timing and instinct on the glass and with blocking shots. But the best part about McGuire is that he’s becoming such a diverse defender. He really gave it to Ben Gordon and not much came easy for a guy with a history of killing the Wizards.
  • Mike James, while not great, is not as bad as people think — get off his back a little, okay?
  • Antawn Jamison…..the consummate pro. Shame on those who wanted to trade him…SHAME!
  • Caron Butler didn’t score a ton of points, but he also didn’t force the issue as he’s been susceptible of doing.
  • I’ve also liked what I’ve seen from Andray Blatche since his return from injury. He still has his “Andray Blatche” moments, but has displayed more hustle and a better fundamental game.
  • Darius Songaila… mans.
  • Feel like I’m missing something, but that is all (oh yea, JaVale McGee was around…

[Wizards Insider]
Maybe the Wizards should get the Prez season tickets. For whatever reason, they looked like a real, legitimate NBA team tonight.

[Wizards Outlet]
The Wizards had the crisp ball movement, solid ball containment and aggressiveness that they have lacked far too often in this 14-44 season.

[Washington Times]
“He is what he is. He’s going to be what he’s going to be. If he wants to stay with the Bulls, stay with the Bulls,” Wizards center/forward Andray Blatche joked before the game. “But we’ll have to teach him a lesson today. He’s going to try to come here his first day and think the Bulls are going to win. I feel bad, but it’s something that’s got to be done.”
