Anyway, onto the links:

  • You figure John Wall will eventually be under consideration for Team USA, but when will that happen? [Michael Lee]
  • A good counterpoint to "Midnight Madness:" would it have been done if the Wizards didn't get John Wall? [Truth About It]
  • Another "don't forget about Gilbert Arenas" piece. [Dime]
  • Wall says that he doesn't plan on doing the John Wall Dance at "Midnight Madness," which is too bad. [Michael Lee]
  • A comprehensive season preview of the Wizards, which I'd take more seriously if they didn't list JaVale McGee as the team's best defensive player. [HoopsWorld]
  • Yi Jianlian played well in the FIBA World Championships, but that doesn't necessarily mean his success will translate back to the NBA. [Roblog]
  • An argument that we shouldn't expect John Wall to come roaring out of the gate in his rookie year. [Evans Clinchy, NESN]
  • You knew that the Wizards could have had Ricky Rubio, but what you probably didn't know is that the player the Wizards would have picked with the 35th pick they traded to Minnesota this year is playing for Serbia at the FIBA World Championships. [Michael Lee]
  • Flip Saunders is listed as one of four coaches that will be on the hot seat this year.  My take: firing coaches quickly doesn't seem like the Ted Leonsis way. [Matt Moore, CBS Sports]
  • Because Basketball Reference is fun, and because history is fun, a two-part series taking a look at some interesting Bullets/Wizards statistical quirks. [Truth About It: Part 1 | Part 2]
  • Michael Lee breaks down the Wizards' April schedule. [Wizards Insider]
  • Ernie Grunfeld and Ed Tapscott participated in the Players Association's inaugural leadership training seminar.  Very cool to see.  [Ken Berger]
  • The Dakota Wizards, Washington's D-League affiliate, is holding tryouts in D.C. on September 16 and 17 []
  • In light of the NBA Jam rosters being released, here's a question: who makes up your ultimate four-team Wizards/Bullets roster, using only players from 1990 and beyond. [SB Nation D.C.]
  • Apparently, the producer of "Sports Science" is a big Wizards fan.  That probably explains the John Wall episode. [Dime]
  • Does Trevor Booker have a Cowboys tattoo on his arm?  It sure looks like it. [@jakewhitacre]
  • If you're looking for updates on former Wizards fringe players Paul Davis and Corsley Edwards, here's your answer. [Ridiculous Upside]
  • Josh Howard's outfit here is ridiculous. [Truth About It]
