[Basketball Court: First St. & K St. NW, Washington, D.C. - K. Weidie]
TAI Programming Note:
Both Michael Lee on the Washington Post’s Wizards Insider blog and the gang over at Bullets Forever have been providing some excellent preview coverage of the Washington Wizards heading into training camp.
Here at Truth About It.net, we’re ready to gear up our coverage too. As we approach “Midnight Madness” and the start of training camp on September 27/28, the TAI staff will collaborate to form the sum of a preview for each of the 10 main characters of your 2010-11 Wizards playing squad. Or, each of the moving parts that will/should/hopefully come together under the direction of Coach Flip Saunders to form a competitive basketball team (or at least one that’s enjoyable to watch).
So, in the coming days we will have comprehensive previews on: Gilbert Arenas, Hilton Armstrong, Andray Blatche, Trevor Booker, Kirk Hinrich, Josh Howard, Yi Jianlian, JaVale McGee, Kevin Seraphin, Al Thornton, John Wall, and Nick Young, featuring work from the TAI staff: Rashad Mobley, Adam McGinnis, John Townsend, Arish Narayen, and myself, Kyle Weidie.
We will also have some guest contributors for these previews: Beckley Mason, who has done work for Dime and has had work from his own blog, HoopSpeak.com, featured on TrueHoop; and Stephen Riley, who has covered the Wizards for the Washington Afro.
Players such as Cartier Martin, Lester Hudson, Hamady Ndiaye, Sean Marks and possibly Fabricio Oberto (the last three if they make it to camp) will be covered as their respective story lines develop.
