Nets Vs. Wizards: Fake Open Game Thread For Game 1 Of Locked-Out NBA Season.

On November 2, 2011, the Washington Wizards were supposed to play the first game of their season against Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and the New Jersey Nets.  As a Wizards fan, you were supposed to be on here discussing the game in this open thread. Unfortunately, billionaires have decided to lock out millionaires, and millionaires are not willing to accept all the concessions the billionaires are asking them to accept. 

So instead, this game thread is merely an open thread to discuss whatever the heck you all want.  Below the jump, a look at a classic Wizards-Nets game from yesteryear.
