Morning pixels: Beating MJ is sweet victory

April 10, 2012

The Wizards destroyed the Charlotte Bobcats 113-85, including a 67 combined points from the Wizards reserves. At this point in the season, most losses can be as valuable as wins when you consider the lottery implications, but this one was different.

This meant beating Michael Jordan, and for most fans in D.C., that’s priceless.

Jordan was a disaster as a member of the Wizards front office, and Rick Maese explained in a recent story that Charlotte fans are struggling with the pain that some Wizards fans still feel.

If the Bobcats end up with the No. 1 pick in the draft, Charlotte fans better hope Jordan has more luck with Anthony Davis than he did with Kwame Brown.

Sorry, Anthony, nothing personal — well, not against you at least.

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER
* The Wizards are learning that it’s kind of fun to win.

* People were saying that the Nats have a bullpen talented enough to withstand Drew Storen’s injury. That was before Henry Rodriguez’s ninth-inning meltdown last night.

* Speaking of Storen, he’s visiting Dr. James Andrews today. Cue the alarm.

* The Alex Ovechkin/Zdeno Chara matchup during the Caps-Bruins series is going to be quite a battle.

TWEET OF THE NIGHT
I’m pretty sure he means Bruce Allen, but still . . . RGIII!!!

Doesn’t mean much but the rumors are true.... RG3 was at The Palm in Tysons tonight with Snyder, Mike Shanahan and possibly George Allen.

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT

Wizards Coach Randy Whittman on the performance of James Singleton and Cartier Martin, both on 10-day contracts.

“Maybe we shouldn’t even have practice with the way those two guys played tonight.”

Maybe I should have been watching more Chinese Basketball Association instead of all those Wizards games.
