Not only did D-Song go off with an 8-9 FG, 19 point performance against the T-Wolves, but those stats are from his last TEN games.
Before the All-Star break, Darius “Dirty” Songaila played in 52 games, starting 10, and dropped 6.1 ppg on 50% shooting. In the 11 games since the break, all starts, he is draining 65.9% of his shots and scoring 11.5 points per.
- A piece I wrote about Abe Pollin on NBCWashington.com has not exactly been well received. Oh well…. I still stand by my assertion that it’s time for team ownership to change hands.

- [Wizards Insider] In terms of a grade and given his salary, history and role, I’ll give Juan a C for the season.

What the shit kind of Michael Jordan Wizards rip off is this?
Evidently these things are designed by Michael Lau, some toy designer from Hong Kong. Not sure how I feel…they seem cool….but damn MJ! Could you have at least made the playoffs while in DC?
To honor D-Song….and his FIYAA!! (or fire for you proper people), I’m going to let M.O.P. handle the outro. Now I’m off to see the Wiz take on CP3.
