Don’t you forget about me. I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby. Going to take you apart, I’ll put us back together at heart, baby. -Simple Minds
Remember John Wall? Remember the guy we said was one of the most electrifying players to come out of the college ranks in years? The guy who made the Dougie famous? The guy, who when taken with the first overall pick ignited dancing in the streets? Like the Good Book says, “Let them praise His name with dancing. Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.” I’m gonna praise him. I got my timbrel and lyre. Last seen, in the Rookie-Sophomre Game, John Wall was making a ridiculous bounce pass from behind the three-point arc to a leaping Blake Griffin who finishes if off with the slam. Well, he’s still making ridulous passes. A plethora of ridicilous passes. A gaggle of ridiculous passes. In fact, Wall had 10 assists in the Wizards’ loss to the Pacers just last night. It was his 19th game this season with at least 10 assists. Yowza! Entering play on Tuesday night, all other NBA rookies had combined for only two double-digit assists games this season: one apiece for Eric Bledsoe and Pooh Jeter. Hee hee hee, Pooh. The Wizards may be abysmal but John Wall is unforgettable.

Let’s dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues. Let’s dance, to the song they’re playin’ on the radio. Let’s sway, while colour lights up your face. Let’s sway, sway through the crowd to an empty space. -David Bowie
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! When John Wall was taken with the first overall pick in this year’s draft by the Washington Wizrads, there was dancing in the streets. Like the Good Book says, “Let them praise His name with dancing. Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre.” Last night, Wall himself joined in the festivities. Last night, John Wall himself made like Ren McCormack and said, “Hey, hey! What’s this I see? I thought this was a party. Let’s Dance!” And I’m not just talking about the pregame ceremonies as ssen above. Read More »

(CBS 7PM ET) Is there anyone in America not rooting for Cornell? Maybe some folks. Maybe Bill Cosby. Maybe Ashley Judd. Heck, maybe any Kentuckians who don’t live in Louisville. But everybody else is rooting for Cornell. Sorry folks, everybody else is going to be gravely disappointed. I know what Preacher Purl said. I know he said, “David put his hand in the bag and took out a stone and slung it. And it struck the Philistine on the head and he fell to the ground. Amen.” Kentucky ain’t falling nowheres. Amen. While Cornell may have most of America behind them, Kentucky has John Wall in front of them. Wall is the difference between competing for a national championship and being America’s sweetheart. Get your popcorn ready!

(ESPN 9PM ET) Tonight, undefeated Kentucky will have its toughest road test of the season. But that’s not why I’m watching. That’s not why you’re watching. We’re watching this game because we’re watching the future of the NBA. We’re watching this game to see wunderkid John Wall. We’re watching to see this kid to come riding in on his white horse to perform many great signs and wonders. Wall is one of those rare guards who possesses size, speed and athleticism. At least once or twice a game he will make a jaw dropping play. An awe dropping play. There should be a law dropping play. He is able to consistently finish above the rim. He has an extra gear which allows him to turn the corner or to explode by defenders in the open court At full speed, he is not only faster than anyone else on the court, but he is faster while handling the ball as he is weaving through defenders. Yowza! Get your popcorn ready!

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Karl Malone has been a spokesman for the National Rifle Association, and he loves shooting rare wild animals for sport. But, Malone is famous for his stance against NBA players packing heat. Malone: “Now why do these guys carry guns? Is that the ‘cool’ thing to do? Well ‘cool’ gets you dead!” Well now, cool gets you broke. At least it looks as if it’s gonna get Gilbert Arenas broke. In some places, like your local NRA rifle range, it might be free to wave a couple of guns around with your friends if you don’t waste any of those increasingly expensive bullets. For Arenas, however, it could cost a little bit more than 111 million American dollars. According to TMZ, the Washington Wizards have told locker room pistolero Gilbert Arenas they believe he is in violation of his contract and they have the right to void the deal. See what happens?

‘Cause I’m a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk, up at Lawrence on the Kaw. ‘Cause I’m a Jay, Jay, Jay, Jay, Jayhawk, with a sis-boom, hip hoorah!
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Everybody’s talking about this John Wall kid. Everybody’s squawking about Kentucky. All day long at school I hear how great Kentucky is at this or how wonderful Kentucky did that! Kentucky, Kentucky, Kentucky! Isn’t there somebody you’re forgetting? A number one somebody you’re forgetting? That’s right. Rock. Chalk. Jayhawk! While everybody’s been yipping and yapping about John Wall, flipping and flapping about the freshamn phenom from Kentucky, a frehman phenom from Kansas has been doing some things himself. Xavier Henry started with a 25-point performance Wednesday and continued with a near triple double yesterday as Kansas cruised to beat LaSalle 90-65. Yowza! Know this: That was the Jayhawks’ seventh win by at least 25 points this season. That was the most such wins by any school in college basketball today. How about that? How about this: Over the last four seasons (since 2006-07), Kansas has won 35 regular-season games by a margin of 25 or more points, also the most in the country over that span. So while you’re lauding over your John Wall and your Kentucky, just don’t forget about your Xavier Henry and your Kansas.

Punch the Wizards in the mug enroute to a nine game winning streak. Punch the Wizards in the mug enroute to world championship. Get your popcorn ready!

Here, here to the Washington Wizards. Not only do they have all the potential in the land to become a positive team in the Eastern Conference, but now they can’t get along. With the return of Gilbert Arenas this season and the acquisitions of Mike Miller and Randy Foye, fans in D.C. must have been buzzing. I know I would have been. Especially when pairing that combination with the likes of Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, DeShawn Stephenson, Brendan Haywood and Andre Blatche there could be something! Read More »

Let’s face it people, the Washington Wizards have been nothing but sub-par the last few years. Playing in the Eastern Conference where the talent has flooded recently with the likes of Boston, Cleveland, Orlando and even Atlanta, the Wizards have been non-existent. Last night marked the first time in a while in which they went out and just pounded a team. That team by the way was led by King James himself with the new addition of the, “Shaq Daddy.” This wasn’t supposed to happen. Or was it?
