  • Randy Wittman is looking for consistency from his players. They've certainly gotten it from him so far. [Washington Post]
  • I think it's safe to say that A.J. Price has secured the starting point guard spot with John Wall sidelined by a knee injury, even if Wittman won't say so. [CSN Washington]
  • More recaps from Saturday's 102-94 preseason win over the Bucks. [Wizards Insider | Washington Times]
  • Ted was pleased with the team's shorthanded effort against the Bucks. [Ted's Take]
  • Dwight Howard made his Lakers debut Sunday, scoring 19 points, grabbing 12 rebounds and blocking four shots in a 99-92 preseason loss to the Kings. [SB Nation | ESPN Los Angeles | Yahoo! Sports]
  • Amar'e Stoudemire will miss 2-3 weeks and the beginning of the regular season with a ruptured cyst in his knee. Ouch. [SB Nation | ESPN New York]
  • The NBA could approve putting sponsors' logos on player jerseys when team owners meet this week. If they do, could sponsors end up having as much influence over the league as they do in NASCAR? [NY Times]
  • Shoutout to the Indiana Fever, which won its first WNBA championship yesterday with a 87-78 victory and 3-1 series win over the defending champion Minnesota Lynx. With that out of the way, feel free to continue ignoring the WNBA. [Swish Appeal]
