Gortat lends a helping hand

In today's Wake-Up Call, we take a look at Marcin Gortat as he continues to make Poland proud on and off the court. We also look at how Kobe Bryant was nearly a Washington Wizard and why John Wall feels the Wizards deserve another All Star. 1. Marcin Gortat helps Polish family When he's not helping John Wall on the pick-and-roll, Gortat is helping his fellow countrymen and women, especially military families trying to cope with life after the death of a loved one. Recently, Gortat brought a military widow and her two children to the United States to experience America for the first time....

#WizardsTalk mailbag: Problem with Beal? Can Gortat make All-Star?

DC Sports Bog: Long before Wizards fans started cheering for free chicken, the Bullets hosted ‘Stop Lloyd B. Free’ night

Some day, the Wizards’ fourth-quarter chicken sandwich promotion will become passé. Some day, the loudest cheers of the game at Verizon Center will not be reserved for an opponent missing two free throws. Some day, Marcin Gortat will not go crazy for free poultry. Read full article >>

Marcin Gortat: 'Me and Nene wanted to send a message'

An admittedly perturbed Marcin Gortat grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds and Nene led the Wizards with 20 points and clutch plays in the fourth quarter of a 99-90 victory vs. the Nets.

Wizards have to find a way to slow down Brook Lopez

The Wizards couldn't stop the Nets' big man on Friday and will need to find a way to change things Saturday night. Just when it didn't seem like it could get worse for the Wizards inside, it did. As the Wizards fumbled through a disastrous stretch in the 3rd quarter, Randy Wittman decided to give the early hook to Wizards' center Marcin Gortat.  The Polish Machine was out of order on Friday night, out of position and appearing to lack focus and energy. Meanwhile, Brook Lopez was starting to cook, scoring 8 points during a crucial 16-4 run that shifted the game from a back and forth affair...

Nene once again proved his worth against the Chicago Bulls

Nene may have only scored 13 points last night in a huge win over the Chicago Bulls, but he once again showed why he's so important to the Wizards moving forward. Everything the Chicago Bulls are lauded for - their embarrassment of riches in the frontcourt, their ability to push pick and rolls to the sidelines and bait opponents into midrange shots - gets flipped upside down when facing the Wizards. Really, it's the exact recipe teams should be using against the Wizards. You want to overwhelm Marcin Gortat and Nene with size (Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol), athleticism (Taj Gibson), and...

Nene, Marcin Gortat rough up Bulls' bigs in victory over Chicago

After being outplayed in their first meeting at the Verizon Center, the Wizards' unlikely big man pairing reclaimed the advantage in the Wizards' 102-86 win over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. Two of Ernie Grunfeld's most controversial moves in the John Wall era centered around the Wizards' starting big men. First, he acquired Nene in a move that received a fair share of criticism because of Nene's hefty contract and the organizational philosophy shift to start surrounding John Wall with veterans instead of young talent. Then, last year Grunfeld gave up Emeka Okafor and a first round...
