Michael Vick attended a Wizards game, and was really impressed by John Wall

While partaking in my daily routine of stalking John Wall on social media, I came across a very intriguing exchange between him and one time NFL great Michael Vick, and it sparked several thoughts in my head about the vast meaningful similarities between the two. The one and done college careers followed by becoming the top draft pick in their respective leagues; the dynamically unstoppable speed; the bona fide ability to wreck an entire defense single-handedly. My man RT @MikeVick: I went to check my hometown Wizards out last week. Lol @JohnWall he's something else #Wiz #NBA— John W ...

Le Crochet de Ciel:  Is Kevin Seraphin’s hook shot the most unstoppable move in the NBA today?

Le Crochet de Ciel, when translated from French to English becomes: the sky hook. I started noticing the phenomenon on December 5th, 2014. There was a lunatic Wizards fan somewhere in the 100 level of the Verizon Center. I don’t know who he was or where he sat. All I remember is the screams. “HOOK!! SHOOT THE HOOK!!...THERE IT IS!!” Every time Kevin Seraphin touched the ball, I heard the scream, and probably everyone in the 100 levels heard him too. Shoot, maybe even the nose bleeds heard him once he got a full crew following his lead. And on that night, that hook was unstoppable. Seraphin sho ...

Game Notebook 45, Wizards at Nuggets: Wiz get bailed out for Big 30

Wizards 117 Nuggets 115 (OT) January 25, 2015 - Pepsi Center, Denver, CO Few things in life feel as good as the feeling of getting bailed out. Bailed out. You know, like when you're in a pickle of some sorts, and someone or something breaks you out of it? People get bailed out of jail, or out of a collection fee. Shit, I got bailed out in the 7th grade when a nice bookstore owner let me off the hook after he caught me stealing pages out of a nudie magazine. The Wizards got bailed out tonight. How, you ask? They got bailed out by the Nuggets failing to convert offensive rebounds late in the gam ...

Game Notebook 44, Wizards at Blazers: Start to the road trip not so rosy

Blazers 103 Wizards 96 January 24, 2015 - Moda Center, Portland, OR About last night.. Last night’s heart-piercing diminishment in Portland was a sheer tale of two halves. After the Wizards took a 55-45 lead into halftime (and at one point led the Blazers by 14), the Wizards’ gear was stuck on reverse in the second half with a brick planted on the accelerator. Let me explain. The first half for the Wizards featured an excellent display of execution via swift ball movement and a shooting percentage of 54%. The Wizards had just about a complete 1st quarter as we’ve seen them have all year. Nene ...

Wizards fans: #KD2DC is fun; just don’t let it get the best of you

Here are some facts. I'm not exactly spewing them to make a statement about any particular thing or idea (maybe I will later), but just take them in as real facts: ->Kevin Durant was born and raised in the Washington, DC metro area, specifically the towns of Suitland and Seat Pleasant, Maryland, both of which are located approximately nine miles from the Verizon Center. ->Kevin Durant has been exclusively representative of his hometown via a large “MARYLAND” tattoo inked across his upper back, and a red ‘curly W’ imprinted on his belly. He's also been seen in a plethora of photos where he's po ...
