SOFT!

WASHINGTON - The Wizards were dealt a major blow last night in losing the softest player in the NBA: Antawn Jamison, to a left knee injury. They were, however, able to come out with a victory to remain atop the mountain that is the NBA's Eastern Conference. Jamison is averaging almost 18 points a game this year, all of which come on floating one handers, which is precisely what you look for in a power forward these days. Jamison, who tip-toes the court like a ballerina, will have an MRI on Thursday, and will not travel with the team to Toronto. Reports are surfacing that if Jamison is out for an extended period of time, the Wizards might look to sign Brian Boitano to a 10-day contract to fill his role. In related news, Cleveland fan-favorite Carlos Boozer will also be sidelined for 4-6 weeks after fracturing his fibula...what a shame!

**Special Note: I have had a personal vendetta against Antawn Jamison ever since his North Carolina Tarheels lost to Utah in the '97 NCAA tournament when I had North Carolina's Mountain Dew Cap and was in line to win a $5 dollar hat that I would have looked ridiculous on me anyways.

Why do you have a problem with floating one-handers? You probably don't like whirling dervishes either.

I heard the Wiz are lookin at Tonya Harding to come in and replace Jamison's softer finesse game for a more in your face, tough image.
