Actually, Wizards insiders have been far more concerned all season with the play of Butler -- who's struggled in Saunders' guard-oriented offense after spending the last four years in the forward-centric offense of ex-coach Eddie Jordan -- and Butler's relationship with Arenas. I heard the "king/prince" analogy this week, as in, Butler became the king last season while Arenas was injured, and wonders why he has to go back to being a prince now that Arenas has returned. But, another team guy pointed out, the Wizards won 19 games last season without Arenas. That's more of an issue, from what I've been told, than Arenas' relationship with Saunders.David Aldridge today. DA's very plugged-in, so there's definitely something to this. From being around the team a bit, I can definitely sense some tension between Arenas and Butler. I have a long theory about Caron and what's happened to him recently, but it's speculative and I'll save it for another post. For now, I wanted to throw this out there, because I've gotten the same sense Aldridge has and Aldridge tightened it up and expressed it better than I have been able to thus far it by talking to others.
