LB not embarrassed
Cavs forward LeBron James didn't like the question from the start. Embarrassed?
"Do I have to answer that?" he asked.
In his thinking, the Wizards - despite being 41 games under .500 - are an NBA team. A team with a very bad record, but an NBA team nonetheless.
If this team is healthy, it's among the top 8 teams in the Eastern Conference playoff race. But injuries to key personnel, including Gilbert Arenas, Brendan Haywood and Etan Thomas, among others, kept them from being a playoff contender.
However, if the Wizards some how get the No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft, how would Oklahoma center Blake Griffin look in their starting lineup? If you say, "Sweet," you would be right.
