Capital Punishment: A Preview

Updated: August 20, 2011


I did a preview of Capital Punishment for ESPN Los Angeles with a run down of several participating players from each of the Goodman and Drew rosters. So check it out please.

But here’s a fun video of Nick dunking, as part of the Nick & JaVale Show…

But there will be another Wizard playing in a basketball game today. Kevin Seraphin and his French team will be taking on Croatia the at the London Olympic Test Event. So far, France is 3-0 with wins against Great Britain, Australia and China. Seraphin’s numbers in those respective games is as follows:

vs. Great Britain: 4 mins, noting on the stat line

vs. Australia: 16 mins, 4 points, 2-3 FGs, 5 rebounds (3 offensive), 1 block, 2 fouls, 3 turnovres

vs. China: 19 mins, 14 points, 7-8 FGs, 5 rebounds (2 offensive), 2 fouls, 2 turnovers

With Ronny Turiaf out due to a broken finger and Seraphin gaining his minutes starting with the Australia game, look for him to continue getting quality run. This is all pretty good for a guy who was a surprise to make the French team for the upcoming EuroBasket 2011 in the first place. See? Not all is lost in Wizards development this summer.

According to translation from a French website, it seems that Antawn Jamison was initially interested with signing with French club Alsace. But instead he opted to just spend time with his family, giving way for Orlando Magic rookie Justin Harper to sign with the team.

Technically there is no ‘s’ in Barry Farm, but we’ll just go with it.

    I was at the game. They forced people to wait in the heat for over an hour, not letting anyone in, even though aau games were going on. Once the line started moving it took over 30 mins to actually get to the door. Once I got to the door they let me in and closed the doors in the face of my friends who were right behind me and at least 500 other people who had already paid for tickets and been waiting as long as I had. I had a great time however. As far as the wizards performances John wall looked good, practically took over the 4th quarter. However, his jumpshot looked terrible, a few wide open easy jumpers weren’t even close to going in. As for javale or Pierre he looked soft. Demarcus cousins was out muscling him. He also tried to take the ball down the court like he does in the NBA and ended up embarrassing himself. He seems to have not developed his technical/ fundamental skills. This was very apparent while going up against Demarcus cousins who is much more skilled than I used to give him credit for. The dunk of the night was cousins throwing down a monster on McGee.

    It would have been great to be there. Can’t wait to look at the video highlights.

    As far as Young and McGee. Same old stuff. Young, always immature and never seems to man up, too much pride. And McGee. Will he ever get to that level? Not sure.

    Walls the man, again. Doing what he does, consistently, your right about his jump shot. That has to develop.
