Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-23

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-23
Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler have embraced their roles as all-stars in recent years, and deservedly so.

But in previous years when they made the Eastern Conference team -- both made it as recently as last season -- the commonality has been that the Wizards were a playoff-contending team.

This year, with the Wizards in contention only to see how many ping-pong balls they can amass for this summer's draft lottery, it's a stretch to think either player could make the team.

"A huge part of it is winning, and right now we're just not winning," forward Caron Butler said. "But I think that one of us needs to go. It would be nice. But if I don't go I'll enjoy the time I get with my family."

Butler and Jamison have never been named starters in the game before. The starters for the game were announced Thursday night; the reserves will be named next week.

Said Jamison: "It's fun to be a part of. I've always enjoyed my times there. We'll just have to wait and see. But admittedly, it's hard to go if the team isn't doing well, so we'll see."

LAKERS 117, WIZARDS 97: When the teams met earlier this year in Washington, the Wizards made a game of it to the end before falling 106-104. This was not the case on Thursday, though, as the Wizards fell behind by 36 points and never challenged the Pacific Division-leading Lakers.

So lopsided was the game that Kobe Bryant, named to his 11th all-star team before the game, finished with just 11 points and wasn't really needed much in the blowout.

Antawn Jamison led the Wizards, who close their four-game western road trip Saturday in Portland, with 19 points.
