Questioning Antawn Jamison: Truth About It

24

Truth comes through with a real thought-provoking post about Antawn Jamison's defensive struggles and how it may complicate Flip Saunders' job next year. I don't want to sum it up too much, because you should all read it, but this raises an interesting question: just what is to be done about them? If the answer long-term is making Jamison a sixth man, as he was in Dallas, then how will he take it? Truth brings in some evidence to suggest that he may not take it as well as even he assumes. This is a key question long-term. Jamison has preached sacrifice a lot, the question is, will he live by his own words?

Mike James is on Twitter

As far as I can tell, this is the first Wizard on Twitter. It was a bit odd to see him list himself on his bio as a golfer before he lists himself as an NBA vet, but other than that, there's nothing else of note yet.

Tayshaun or Rip?

Q: How does it make you feel to be considered the top point guard? Paul: It makes me feel really, really good. But after tomorrow, it doesn’t make a difference. Once you get drafted it’s what you do after. No matter if you’re the second pick or the 60th pick, it really doesn’t matter. It’s all about how you perform.

Caron calmed him down a bit and said: hey we in the wildnerness this place is crawling with food, Andray you go in the bush and bring us back some brisket son. ANdray walked around an hour or so then got hungry and ate some berries he found and lay down and slipped into a cold sleep. When Drey didnt come back everyone started to argue abouit what to do next so Antawn divided the group into the "Biguns" and the "Littluns" and made a rule that everyone had to talk in turns and whoever had the conch shell it was their turn to talk so they passed it around and everyone said their ideas, Nick Young used his time with the conch to tell the first 40 minutes of the movie Gladiator and then eventually Gil made a ruling to shut down the conch once and for all because he said he was being misinterpreted.

Everything that you needed to know about this season can be summed up right there.
