Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? That means in seven days, it will be Black Friday. You know, that day when you shop til you drop for the holiday shopping season? Time flies.

With that said, let's get to our top stories for this week.

Jake has more analysis on it here. In addition, check out the players who the Wizards could be targeting should they use the disabled player exception.

There is no breaking news story per se, but since suffering a stinger a week and a half ago against the Atlanta Hawks, Beal has missed three consecutive games despite the fact that he was listed as questionable/probable.

You can see John Wall sing along to his entrance music at the 1:15 mark along with other celebrities like Jon Stewart, other NBA players like Udonis Haslem and Chris Andersen of the Miami Heat, and a variety of other WWE wrestlers.

The Undertaker is the longest tenured wrestler in WWE, so he definitely deserves props for his career from being the scary guy at the grave ... to his biker era in the early 2000's:

Internet video star Tay Zonday turned down a chance to make a video with Gilbert Arenas

Either the "Chocolate Rain" singer's asking price of $10,000 was too high or he didn't want to deal with Arenas' personality. Maybe both. Jake has more here.

That's all I have. Enjoy your weekends and let's extend that winning streak on Saturday vs. the Pistons!
