Video: Catching Up With Alonzo Gee

Sure it was yet another loss for the Wizards, but it was an eventful one. No, I’m not talking about Gilbert Arenas‘ number change and Mike Miller talking about it. Nor am I talking about JaVale McGee‘s thought process on being so readily available to leave his feet on defense or his career high 20 points and eight dunks. I’m not even talking about Andray Blatche getting frustrated about his turnovers … more on that to come.

Nope. I’m talking about newcomer Alonzo Gee making his NBA debut. Gee, pronounced like the ‘G’ in G-Wiz, the Wizards’ mascot, saw seven minutes of action in the second quarter, certainly no garbage time. In the process, he pulled down two rebounds, one of which was offensive and led to a quick two-hand jam from the former D-Leaguer. So while McGee’s eight dunks were nice, he didn’t score the first points of his NBA career on a dunk (they actually came on a single free-throw in a November 5, 2008 game against the Bucks in Milwaukee).

Gee did.

After the game, after all the other locker room happenings and most of the media had left to file their stories and reports, one guy who most neglected to pay attention to quietly sat in his chair tying his shoe, getting ready to go on his first “official” NBA road trip (Gee met the Wizards in Boston for a game the day he was signed to a 10-day contract).

My colleague Mike Prada of Bullets Forever and I caught up with Gee after the loss to Atlanta to talk about his NBA debut and ascent from the D-League …

    wizards should sign alonzo gee for the rest of the season and pending on what happens for the rest of season with gee’s play, they should consider locking him in for summer camp and possibly signing him before camp get started. he has proven that he belongs in the nba. he is still a little raw, but he can play. wizards have nothing to loose at this point, GEE needs more playing time. within the ten days he has been with the wizards he has given the fans a little excitement in the verison center.
