Now I’ve Seen Everything

The primary’s been making it hard for me to follow the NBA as closely as I’d like, but wtf is happening with my Wizards. First we beat Boston. Then we beat Boston again. Then we . . . lose to the Knicks. I’ve got tickets to tomorrow’s rematch, and I’d had it marked down in my calendar as a definite win. Now — who knows? Meanwhile, I’m trying to puzzle together whether or not there’s any reason to worry that an eventual return of Agent Zero might harm the team’s improved defense. It’s possible that the Daniels-Arenas backcourt that Eddie Jordan liked to use pretty often is just super weak. DeShawn Stevenson rarely looks impressive to me, but the plus-minus stats indicate that he’s contributing on defense.
