Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-02-26

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-02-26
As it turns out, Gilbert Arenas has been practicing with the team ever since the All-Star break ended. This has been kept a secret from the media covering the team, and once again it brings up the question about how much power Arenas wields in the organization.

Apparently, Arenas didn't want anyone outside of the organization to know he had been working out with the team, and everyone -- from the president down to the director of public relations -- kept the player's secret.

And this is not the first time that lies have been fashioned to protect the player.

A few years back, when he was about to be served papers in a pending paternity suit in California -- right before the team was set to play a nationally-televised game -- the team concocted a ludicrous story that he had taken ill and would not be at the game. In reality, the Wizards flew Arenas to Houston ahead of the team.

"It's a troubling pattern clearly," said an Eastern Conference scout speaking anonymously. "I mean, it's insane that a player can have this type of protection for his missteps and the team is completely complicit. He's not healthy, they gave him millions and millions and still this stuff goes on. God bless 'em."

SIXERS 106, WIZARDS 98: Andre Iguodala was one of six 76ers to score in double-figures as Philadelphia ended its post-All-Star break slump with a victory over a putrid Washington team.

Up by three points at halftime, Philadelphia outscored the Wizards 26-14 in the third to take control of the game.

"More of the same every night," Wizards interim coach Ed Tapscott said. "We didn't execute, we didn't focus, didn't do anything right, all night."
