Kris Humphries is a better player than Trevor Booker, but not necessarily an upgrade for Wizards

Kris Humphries was one of the lone bright spots for the Boston Celtics last season. The 28-year-old forward played in 69 games and averaged 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds while having a 55.2 percent true shooting percentage. He will likely come off the bench next season for the Wizards after they acquired him in a sign-and-trade deal with Boston. Washington already has Marcin Gortat and Nene Hilario to work opponents down low. Read full article >>

Wizards 2013-14 Pivotal Moments: The eight-man rotation in January

We now head over to January 2014 where we visit another pivotal moment for the Washington Wizards' 2013-14 season: the eight-man rotation. The Washington Wizards' month of January started out pretty rough with three straight losses. Then they went 8-6 the rest of the way. How they did so, was a pivotal moment, given that the Wizards went with an eight-man rotation. The players in this rotation included John Wall, Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza, Nene, Marcin Gortat, Trevor Booker, Martell Webster, and Garrett Temple. Why were these eight players part of this rotation? The answer is pretty...

Wizards 2013-14 Pivotal Moments: The players' only meeting in November

We continue our series of pivotal moments into the month of November. Previous Pivotal Moments: October 2013 - Gortat arrives in DC The Washington Wizards have been notorious for horrible stars in the last several years. In the 2011-12 and 2012-13 years alone, the Wizards had franchise-worst starts of 0-8 and 0-12 respectively. Those starts effectively knocked them out of the playoffs early in the regular season. In the 2013-14 season, the Wizards once again started poorly, going 2-7 in their first nine games. I guess compared with the previous two seasons, that's a great start. But given...

No, it's not what you're thinking. On Saturday night, many Wizards fans were talking about assistant coach Sam Cassell's soon-to-be official departure to the Los Angeles Clippers. Marcin Gortat however was being ... Marcin Gortat. Deadspin reported that the Polish Hammer responded to a Twitter user who implied that he could afford a subscription to Brazzers, an adult web site.

Wiz Insider: Wizards’ Bradley Beal: ‘I still have something to prove to myself every year and I’m going to get better’

LAS VEGAS — Bradley Beal celebrated his 21st birthday with a lavish party in his hometown of St. Louis that included women wearing body paint of his Wizards jersey and doing circus tricks from the ceiling. Beal had a slightly more laidback gathering Washington two weeks later that attracted several of his teammates, including John Wall and Marcin Gortat, who was ready to revel for other reasons after having just signed a five-year, $60 million contract.

Marcin Gortat's summer workouts involve staring at blank walls

When he's not building up muscle, Marcin Gortat is contemplating life. Bartosz Bielecki of Truth About It did some amazing work here, translating an interview Marcin Gortat gave to a Polish website recently. Like most Gortat interviews, it's filled with lots of interesting nuggets, but he gets much more introspective than usual: Is it hard to find "the one"? Gortat: But you keep searching.
 I would like to have a family, build a lasting relationship with someone. But still-contrary to many Poles-I wake up willingly, do something I love, and I even get a lot of money for that. It would be...
