Proof that Nene's motivational tactics with John Wall and Bradley Beal have value

After a slow start to last season, Nene gave John Wall and Bradley Beal one simple suggestion that's done wonders for the team ever since. Nene doesn't always get the credit he deserves for what he does with the Washington Wizards. John Wall and Bradley Beal grab all the headlines, Paul Pierce is a legend, and Marcin Gortat is a blog post waiting to happen every time he opens his mouth. On a team like this, it's easy for Nene's soft-spoken style to go unappreciated, especially when he's also missing spells of time with lingering injuries. But the thing is, even though he's not always on the...

Wise: Marcin Gortat is the smiling soul of the Washington Wizards

On the first day of NBA free agency, July 1, Bradley Beal remembered an odd number coming up on his cellphone. “Brad!”“March?”Marcin Gortat was calling from overseas with some very good news. The 6-foot-11, 240-pound center who was central to the Washington Wizards’ free agency plans had re-signed with a team and a town that came to embrace him last season. Now he was going to tell Beal why.Read full article >>

Wizards dominate the paint in victory over Lakers

Purple and gold jerseys may have filled the crowd on Wednesday night, but the blue jerseys (especially Kris Humprhies and Marcin Gortat's) controlled the paint on both ends in the Wizards' 111-95 victory over the Lakers. Marcin Gortat was pretty succinct when I asked him post game about what the Lakers did - rather did not do - defensively that allowed the Wizards to dominate the paint against the Los Angeles Lakers in Wednesday's matchup. "There was no defense. We just played our game, they let us do a lot of different things," he replied, before describing the ways the Wizards...

Marcin Gortat showed his worth in win over Anthony Davis and the Pelicans

After a few rough games in , Marcin Gortat put together his best performance of the season against one of the NBA's best defenders on Saturday night. When the Wizards signed Marcin Gortat to a 5 year, $60 million, many heads turned. Some in optimistic glee that the Wizards locked up their first good two way center in years, and some in disappointment that the Wizards had signed a 30 year old big man to such a long term contract. Last night, Gortat showed us why the Wizards believed in him enough to sign him to that deal. Gortat scored 24 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and added 4 blocks. He...

Marcin, is there something you would like to get off your chest?

Gortat and Pierce adopt unorthodox weigh lifting technique Sorry guys he is the legend !!! Heavy weight champ @paulpierce #morning #workOut #earlyLifting Zdjęcie zamieszczone przez użytkownika Marcin Gortat (@mgortat13) Lis 11, 2014 at 8:30 PST The stars of last night's win against New Orleans were having a little fun in their morning workouts. Perhaps this is a new Crossfit routine that hasn't yet hit my Facebook feed, or maybe Marcin is just feeling superhuman strength after having 24 points and 13 boards last night.  In any case, I am sure that can't be too comfortable.
