Wizards 106 Sixers 94 February 6, 2016 - Verizon Center, Washington, DC NBA Stats Box Score Following a rough recent stretch of five losses in their last six games, the Wizards welcomed to town everyone’s favorite slump buster, the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers – known recently for almost beating the Golden State Warriors – still hold the worst record in the league and are still directionless. Want to remind them how bad they are? Find Jahlil Okafor in the street after a game and remind him there’s a second half to this season. I digress. A victory over seven win team would mean that the Wiza ...Read More »

April 8, 2015 – Verizon Center: Wizards 119, Sixers 90 What to watch Some temporary relief? Let's hope so. After a grueling five-game stretch where the Wizards lost four and barely won one, capped off by the tumultuous battle against Steph Curry's Warriors, the Wizards are likely absorbed with a little anxiety and mild panic disorder. Let the 7-win Sixers be their Xanax. The Sixers have actually won three of their past eight games which is the most c ...Read More »
So today started off like any other day. I wake up, open Twitter, Facebook, etc… I read the latest Donald Trump race-baiting news, saw some memes comparing Hillary Clinton to Stalin, and of course, the plethora of MJ Crying Face pictures (which I love more than anything). But today I also read a story posted by 106.7 The Fan that I felt the need to reply to. It was arguably the most scorching hot take ever written by a non-credible fan (much like myself), who thinks fan shaming is the way of the future. Well, it’s not. In fact, it makes you look incredibly uninformed. The piece was called “KD ...Read More »
Warriors 134 Wizards 121 February 3, 2016 - Verizon Center, Washington, DC Foreign, legendary gladiators from Oakland, California arrived under cover of a foggy, rainy night in DC, armed, under-armored, and locked in. Within the confines of the Verizon Center, the local heroes prepared for battle, with the knowledge that the enemy they were about to engage was truly powerful, ruthless, and seemingly unstoppable. But they were going to fight nonetheless. What ensued was a battle worthy of the Colosseum. Fire was thrown. Hearts were torn. Heroes were born. Legends would rise. My words are insuff ...Read More »

Thunder 114 Wizards 98 February 1, 2016 - Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma NBA Stats Box Score Let's cut to the chase. The Wizards are in many ways untalented. Their opponent last night, the OKC Thunder, are in many ways not. And when such teams are matched up against one another, it's obvious that for the lesser talented squad the window for error is double-paned, barred up, and bolted shut. The room temperature is a bitter sub-60 degrees and the only climate control is the heat generated on the floor. So how did the Wizards survive this ordeal? They didn't. Instead, they suff ...Read More »
