Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-17

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2008-12-17
The Wizards never thought they would be in a rebuilding mode this season, and even though they are as wretched now as they have been in years, nobody in the front office is talking as if they are.

But the truth is they brought in Javaris Crittenton to be a crucial component to what they have in mind for the future.

Gilbert Arenas has had three knee surgeries in the span of 18 months, and whether or not people want to admit it there is a feeling in the front office that he will never be the player he once was.

Crittenton is the type of player whom the Wizards believe could one day be a starting point guard, with a combination of athleticism and size (6-foot-5) that could create matchup problems for teams in the future.

Right now, though, it's just about getting up to speed.

"He's got to go back to remedial school here and pick up on sets and some of our principles that other guys have had a couple of years with," Wizards coach Ed Tapscott said. "He is a willing worker. He pays attention to detail. He's still got a way to go but he'll pick up on it in time."

Crittenton's next test should come Wednesday when the Wizards play at Detroit. The Wizards have already dropped two games to the Pistons, and Wednesday will mark the second time the teams have played since the Pistons swapped Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson.

PACERS 118, WIZARDS 98: The Wizards proved to be just the remedy the slumping Pacers needed to cure their six-game losing streak and get back in the win column. Antawn Jamison played well for the home team, delivering 26 points and 15 rebounds for the Wizards. But it was not enough to help the Wizards overcome bad shooting (.420) and getting clobbered on the boards (55-41).
