All in for game 1?: Humphries hopes to return for the Wizards season opener

After injuring his hand in the preseason opener against the Bulls, Kris Humphries is working to rejoin the Wizards in time for their opening night game against the Heat. The Wizards frontcourt rotation for the season opener against Miami was looking pretty thin.  After a summer of building depth down low through acquiring and retaining big men, suspensions and injuries threatened to leave the Wizards with a frontline of just Marcin Gortat, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin for their first game.  Help may be on the way, however, as injured forward Kris Humphries is aiming to get himself...

DC Sports Bog: Everyone failed Marcin Gortat during his Wizards ticket giveaway

Marcin Gortat continues to bring big game, personality to Wizards

A year ago, the greatest basketball player Poland has produced was a member of the Phoenix Suns. Today, Marcin Gortat is a key contributor for the rising Washington Wizards on the court and a local celebrity in Washington off it. He is a rare quality center in today’s spread-the-floor NBA and a rarer personality, a charismatic and brazen character unafraid to speak his mind, reveal his emotions and shave his head into a mohawk.

Marcin Gortat wasn't a fan of how the Wizards prepared for games last season, but he believes what happened in the postseason put them in a different mind-set.

Marcin Gortat said Ted Leonsis might get a mohawk if the Wizards make the playoffs

Monumental Network posted a video chronicling Marcin Gortat's recent visit to Pardon The Interruption. Watching the build up to Gortat's response to Tony Kornheiser's criticisms was great, but if you've read the headline you probably don't care about that now. The real good stuff comes at the 3:40 mark, when Gortat talkes with Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon about his mohawk. Here's a quick transcript of what went down. Kornheiser: I would just like to have hair in the middle. If I had hair, I'd like to have hair like that. Hair in the middle. Wilbon: Are you keeping this all season? Is...

Marcin Gortat wants an NBA championship badly

He would even prefer a championship ring to being the president of Poland, which is a big concession if you know him. Also, the backcourt duo gets ESPN love, the importance of Otto Porter and Glen Rice Jr. injury isn't so bad. 1. Marcin Gortat talks about Poland In an interview with Joe Heim of The Washington Post magazine, Gortat spoke about his home country, Poland, his interest in one day becoming the president of the country and which Wizard would benefit most from a visit to his native land. Oh yeah, he also bought a really expensive fish before anything else upon signing his $60...

Otto Porter leads Wizards in win over Maccabi Haifa

Otto continues to play with confidence, Glen Rice Jr. sprains his ankle and Randy Wittman is not a fan of shorter NBA games. Here's today's wake-up call. 1. Wizards beat Maccabi Haifa, 101-95 Due to some starters resting (Nene and Paul Pierce) and playing limited minutes (John Wall and Marcin Gortat), Otto Porter led the Wizards in court time (34 minutes) against Maccabi Haifa. Wizards fans can be happy knowing that he also led the team in points (19) and steals (four). He's looking more and more like a player who belongs, albeit if it's still in preseason. Plus, with Glen Rice Jr.'s...
