Hmm...I dunno, I see a real competitive side to Arenas.

And Jordan liked gambling too.

Arenas' mentality is "I'm going to go hang 50 on them, be damned if I have to take 100 shots and we lose." Then when he doesn't back up his big mouth, he complains that it's cause the coaches were too focused on defense.

Not mention he sits around gambling at half time rather than focusing on the upcoming gameplan. I'd hate to play with this guy and it seems like most of his teamates at both stops have felt the same as me.

Hayes isn't even close to that level, but he still earns all the hate I throw at him.

Who cares if he threw the damn ball. I'm not sure if it would've changed the seedings for us had he not, but even if it would've, he was still one of the best defenders on the team. Sure he's a journeyman, but at least he works hard. Give me him over Haywood 100 times out of 100 on the defensive end, despite the fact that Haywood is more gifted in absolutely every aspect of the game. Ruffin throwing that ball got blown completely out of proportion. A mistake, undoubtedly a bad one, but the man is probably a top 5 defender on his team. Not saying much for a group of guys like the Wiz have thrown together, but it's still more than you can say for a lot of other scrubs throughout the league.

Key word is (was)...So that means obviously the team doesnt have alot of good defenders if Ruffin was one of the best...

I don't understand this comment.

I meant he was one of the best on last year's team.

You're right though, the team's horrible on defense. Doesn't mean he's not at least a little above average though.

I wouldn't mind having Hayes on my team, and I understand where your coming from with Haywood. He is a defensive mess and can be lazy. However I like the wizards team in general; i don't froth at the mouth at donell taylor. Sure, I would make some changes, but I like my team. Not that I'm satisfied.

Mostly I don't like players because they are Mavericks - Rivals (i.e. Duncan).
At most I don't like fans bashing Dirk.

I've seen Dirk flopping many times
