Guard-needy Wizards eagerly welcome Boykins

There are 1 comment on the The Washington Post story from Nov 13, 2009, titled Guard-needy Wizards eagerly welcome Boykins. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

After the Washington Wizards returned from Miami -- where they suffered their fifth consecutive loss, continued to sputter on offense and were reduced to just one healthy point guard -- Caron Butler said he walked around his house with a smile on his face. His wife, Andrea, looked at him, perplexed.

'How are you smiling?' Butler recalls her asking.

'I've got to smile to keep from crying,' he told her.

The Wizards' sorrows weren't resolved when they signed point guard Earl Boykins on Wednesday, but the 11-year veteran does address one problem for a team already ravaged by injuries only three weeks into the season. He provides scoring, playmaking and stability, all in a pocket-sized package.
