Washington Wizards links for September 16: Wizards players actually playing basketball

Today's links:

  • John Wall, Gilbert Arenas, Nick Young, Trevor Booker, JaVale McGee and Kevin Seraphin participate in a pickup game. Watch Young get his pocket picked by Wall, among other things. []
  •  Chad Ford gives the Wizards an A for their offseason, calling the Kirk Hinrich trade a "steal. [ESPN Insider]
  • Ted Leonsis appreciates the grade. [Ted's Take]
  • One new Wizards blogger does too, but disagrees with Ford's take on the Hinrich/Seraphin trade. [Wiz of Awes]
  • Michael Lee on whether the Wizards have enough size this season. I feel like the better question is whether they have enough rebounding, because they do have plenty of "bigs." But that's a future 20Q. [Wizards Insider]
  • One of the blogosphere's best on the report that Gilbert Arenas is healthy and looking good. [Rob Mahoney, Pro Basketball Talk]
  • I like Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner a lot, but I think he's off when he writes that the "March Madness" thing is not worth it. Still, go read and decide for yourself. [Washington Examiner]
  • Jordan Ruby of SB Nation D.C. also disagrees with Stouffer. [Half Smokes]
  • Hilton Armstrong didn't know that the "March Madness" thing was happening. He also thinks he can be the Wizards' starting center. Ambition is good, I guess. [Stouffer]
  • Speaking of "Midnight Madness," if you're one of the first 300 people there, you get a free Chick-Fil-A sandwich. [@WashWizards]
  • Photos from the Wizards PA tryouts. [Truth About It]
  • Some love for Yi Jianlian's FIBA World Championships performance. [Chris Mannix, SI]
  • More on Andray Blatche's summer and the importance of this season for him. [Michael Lee]
  • An argument that John Wall is no "lock" for Rookie of the Year. Um, who said he was? [Evans Clinchy, NESN]
  • Photos of Andray Blatche and DeMarcus Cousins out on the town, if you're into that sort of thing. [DC Fab]
  • I helped contribute to this project over what an NBA expansion team might look like. We had to protect eight players who were under contract past next season. I chose to leave Gilbert Arenas and Hinrich unprotected. [Pick and Scroll
  • David Berri on the Wizards, in case you want to gouge your eyes out. [Opposing Views]
