- What's good party people? While you're checking out the new and improved search feature here, make sure you check out the latest FanPosts and FanShots from this week:
Mike Jones (who!) confirmed that Gilbert Arenas is still planning on opting out of his contract, despite his injury setbacks. Later on in the week, he confirmed that he's not a fan of LeBron James. At least he didn't write a diss track about it.
- After making sure everyone knew that he was still opting out, he made sure everyone knew who he wanted to see stay in Washington, by telling everyone on his blog:
The future is the future. I want to be back in Washington, but weird things happen in free agency. If Antawn is not back, then there’s no point in me coming back because he’s part of my success, too. When you’re doing pick and roll with a player like him, they can’t double you, they can’t trap you because you have a pick and pop guy who can shoot the three at your four position. My success is because of him too. If he doesn’t come back, I’m not coming back.
I know everybody is focusing on whether I’m coming back, but I’m focusing on what he’s doing. If he doesn’t come back, then I’m not coming back.
- You'll notice that Gilbert doesn't make the same request for Jarvis Hayes. From the looks of it, it doesn't seem like Detroit will be either. At least Jarvis can pass the time with the NBA nickname generator.
- If yesterday's OT thriller turned you into a Jazz bandwagoner, make sure you check out the new SB Nation site for the team, SLC Dunk.
- The Wizards' website is counting down the top 10 moments of the season. Here's moments ten through six.
- If Bullets nostalgia is your thing, this video of a double OT thriller versus the Celtics should hit the spot.
- If watching a DJ mispronounce DeShawn Stevenson's name is more up your alley, this video should do the trick.
- Finally, NY1 poses the question of "What do we trade the 18th pick for?" This will be a point of discussion all the way up to the draft, since it seems extremely likely that Grunfeld will look to move that picks, so check it out.
