Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-31

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-01-31
If there was ever a doubt that making the NBA All-Star squad was a byproduct of having a successful season, look to the cases of Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler.

Both players are having All-Star caliber seasons again, but the Wizards have the worst record in the Eastern Conference and the team is arguably the worst in the league. That's why despite their numbers, the Wizards' two stars were left off the Eastern Conference team when the coaches voted on the reserves.

"Once you go you always wanted to go back, no question about it," Jamison said. "But the record of our team speaks for itself. In other years when we've been playing well, we've had two and three guys getting consideration, whether it was Gil (Arenas), Larry (Hughes), Caron or myself. Those years we were right in the thick of things. This year we're on the outside looking in."

Said Butler: "It's just been letdown after letdown. First we think we're getting healthy and then Gilbert goes down. Then Brendan (Haywood). Then the next guy and the next guy. We have a better team than we have shown but it can't be just in your mind. It has to show on the floor."

SIXERS 104, WIZARDS 94: The Wizards fell behind by 15 points early on and then proceeded to allow Philadelphia to shoot 54 percent from the floor on the way to their latest loss. Antawn Jamison led the Wizards with 25 points and 15 boards, and Caron Butler added 20 for the Wizards.

"Same old story," Jamison said. "We start out strong and can't close the deal at the end."
