In the 77th game of a historically bad season, the Wizards put their four best players on the floor for the first time and beat their biggest rival and the NBA’s best team. Gilbert and Brendan posted double-doubles, Caron and Antawn do with they do and the young fellas contributed too. And it was on TNT to boot. I’d be fine if they didn’t win another game all season.

Jason Campbell: “You’re going to play with a little more of a chip on your shoulder. My mindset will be to play extremely hard. I would have done that regardless.

I’m getting ready for the season and want to prepare myself for the best year I’ve had.” [The Washington Times]

Rich Tandler: “Sometimes the best deals are the ones you don’t make. We’ll have to follow the careers of Cutler, Campbell, and whoever the Redskins take in the first round this year and next to figure out if this trade wasn’t one of those.” [Real Redskins]
