WASHINGTON - Ernie Grunfeld traces the success of the Washington Wizards this season back to opening night in Memphis. Against a team that was the biggest surprise of the NBA a year ago, the Wizards played without three starters, fell behind by 18 points - and won. "It showed that we were going to compete," Grunfeld, in his second season as the team's president of basketball operations, said recently. The first of a league-high 10 victories coming back from double-digit deficits was more than the impetus for the franchise's best record at the All-Star break in 25 years.

Long after what might have been his last - or second-to-last - practice as a member of the Washington Wizards, Jordan Crawford hardly looked like a man worried about his future or prepared to distance himself from his teammates. Engaged in a shooting contest with Bradley Beal, A.J. Price, Chris Singleton, Garrett Temple and Cartier Martin, Crawford giggled and talked trash as the players attempted long jumpers near center court. But as he headed to the locker room, Crawford blew past reporters, ignoring requests to speak to him, likely aware that the line of questioning would revolve around his diminished role and the possibility that he will be dealt by today's 3 p.m. trade deadline.

WASHINGTON - As Golden State Warriors teammates during the 2001-2002 season, Antawn Jamison, Larry Hughes and rookie Gilbert Arenas were supposed to turn one of the NBA's perennial doormats into a playoff team. That never happened, and all three went elsewhere. Eventually, elsewhere became the Washington Wizards. Hughes, who was replaced as Golden State's starting point guard by Arenas toward the end of that season, was the first to sign as a free agent with the Wizards in 2002. Arenas, who in his second year with the Warriors was named the league's most improved player on what became the NBA's most improved team, came to Washington before last season after signing a six-year, $65 million contract.

As the Washington Wizards took the court to face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, Antawn Jamison had already ditched his uniform and was headed to his silver Bentley, carrying a duffel bag and leaving behind a season filled with misery. The Wizards traded Jamison to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a three-team deal completed Wednesday night. The Wizards will receive 7-foot-3 center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the rights to Slovenian forward Emir Preldzic and a first-round pick from Cleveland, as well as forward Al Thornton from the Los Angeles Clippers.

WASHINGTON - - The crowd at Verizon Center might have been smaller than usual because of some poor weather outside and some inferior play inside in recent weeks, but the few fans who opted to brave the snow and watch the Washington Wizards had plenty to cheer about Saturday night. With Antawn Jamison more aggressive than ever on the glass and Mike Miller more aggressive than any other time this season with his shot, the Wizards defeated the New York Knicks, 106-96, before a generously announced crowd of 16,233.

Is that all there was? For all the hysteria it provoked, the Gilbert Arenas-Javaris Crittenton incident now looks less like the Gunfight at the NBA Corral than the comic duel in "Love and Death," between Boris Grushenko (Woody Allen) and Count Anton Inbedkov, rivals for the notorious Countess Alexandrovna. Scary as it is to see children play with guns, it doesn't look like the two players drew on each other, as reported only by the New York Post and recycled endlessly.
