- Washington moves forward on the centrifugal force that is a 20-year old kid named John Wall. The strong candidate for Rookie of the Year is leading his team in scoring (18.0 PPG), assists (9.1 APG) and steals (2.8 SPG). Running mate Javale "Javeleveator" McGee leads in rebounds (8.6 RPG) and blocks (2.7 BPG).
- With John Wall out due to injury, Gilbert Arenas went vintage Agent Zero and dropped a season-high 31 points, missing a buzzer beater and falling to Florida neighbors the Orlando Magic 99-100. The consensus around the league sees Arenas being traded and handing the keys to Wall but Gil can still be a dominant force when summoned. A Wall-Arenas backcourt running on a fresh oil change is as paper-scary as it gets.
- Dwyane Wade’s nemesis Kirk Hinrich will likely get the arduos assignment to stop him once again. Kirk has an uncanny ability to stick to his defender and the Wade-Hinrich has blossomed into a visual war on the hardwood floor. Enjoy the show.
- The Wizards are currently running on used parts and Elmer’s glue. Their roster is currently hosting an array of unfortunate injuries:
- Andray Blatche – eye – day to day
- Josh Howard - left knee surgery - out indefinitely
- Yi Jianlian - bruised right knee - out indefinitely
- Al Thornton - sprained left ankle – day to day
- John Wall - sore left knee – day to day
- The Miami Heat held a 40-minute player’s only meeting after their loss to the Mavericks on Saturday. What was said will forever stay within those closed doors, but the consequence should be displayed on the court in the form of atonement tonight. Actions speak louder than words. Surely they hope victories could do all the talking.
