I think the Wizzis have to pay as second team fine...for claiming to be a professional basketball team qualified for the NBA palyoffs...they have to pay 50 grand for slander against the NBA.......

I like the way you play basketball and you and the other players on your team made a good team together and you made your team happy about the way you play and the fans and your family you make me happy by making your team win

Does anyone remember that Stevenson was convicted for the statutory rape of a 14 year old girl in 2001. He was 21, she was 14. That piece of crap should be in jail and anyone close enough to Stevenson at the Q on Wednesday should let him hear about it!
She led him on! Hussy.

First off Lebron's father is not in Jail..If you are referring to Eddie Jackson that was his father figure (and he's not in jail either). Lebron's has never confirmed who his father was nor does he want to. Get your facts straight if you are going to post something as truth. If not sit quietly on the blog sidelines.
I doubt he know's who his father is, his mom got around quite a bit. Much like lebron does. Besides, who cares, it's basketball-a non sport.

Lebron's mother has been in and out of jail a few times too, don't think they want to be going down that road.
And that doesn't even include the times she has gone to jail just for the conjugal visits with her cousins.

I know we love to remember Jordan as the greatest ever, but how do so many people forget that Jordan was such a big whiner. Every time he drove the lane he whined if he didn't get a foul call. And btw Deshawn Stevenson, he did whine about the Pistons fouling him, see http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives...
Thank God, somebody is talking sense. Jordan, Magic, Bird were all big winers!!! Face it Washington, you are gonna lose 3 years in a row to cleveland. It must hurt because Cleveland is such a hard luck city but it's reality. I don't care who was hurt on your team either. You lost have some grace and accept it!!!!

lets get this straight: lebron is better than stevenson. he is NOT overrated. but the wizards ARE the better team. think, if it wasnt for lebron, the cavs are a joke. delante west is on stevensons level. the wizards have arenas, butler, and jamison as their best, NOT stevenson and haywood. haywood just blows, blatche should be put back in. i only agree with lebrons whining to an extent, i mean he does get ALOT of fouls, but he eve admitted that hes a "big guy" and a small shove wont do much to stop him. plus when uy drive in, u are expected to be pushed or hit, its just game. wizards are a very good team eddie jordan is a great coach if u want to bash, bash on the celtics, THERE overrated imo
