Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson has engaged Miami Heat forward LeBron James in a war of words during the NBA Finals, bringing back memories of when Stevenson was with the Wizards and James was still in Cleveland. Reminiscing about that beef on Thursday’s “Outside the Lines,” ESPN’s Bob Ley recited the first verse of "Blow the Whistle," a Stevenson diss that LeBron’s buddy Jay-Z wrote in 2008 -- including the line, "When you talking to a don, please have respect like you're talking to your mom. " Listening to the stoic sportscaster read Jay-Z lyrics might not be for you, but I thoroughly enjoyed it .

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.

While the Washington Wizards have removed virtually all traces of Gilbert Arenas from Verizon Center, one teammate found a way to get his suspended teammate's nickname visible Sunday before the team's loss to the New Orleans Hornets. DeShawn Stevenson took to the court during pre-game warm-ups with the words "AGENT" and "ZERO" written in red capital letters on tape wrapped just above his ankles. "He's still a part of the team, right?" Stevenson said. "He's still part of the team, he's my brother, so I'm going to stick to him through rough times.

Washington... The Washington Wizards lost another game in excruciating fashion, this time failing to hold a lead in the final seconds and falling to Indiana, 114-113, on Saturday night before 13,171 at Verizon Center. The Wizards' losing streak reached four games, and they wasted a triple double by Gilbert Arenas (22 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds) and strong performances from Antwan Jamison (31 points) and Caron Butler (23 points). After Arenas missed two free throws, T.J. Ford drove to the basket and put up a shot that was blocked out of bounds as the buzzer sounded.

Three more members of the Washington Wizards have met with authorities concerning the Gilbert Arenas gun investigation. Caron Butler , Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson had to miss practice Monday to answer questions. Coach Flip Saunders and other players met with authorities last week. Arenas is under investigation for taking guns to Verizon Center and related incidents stemming from a dispute with teammate Javaris Crittenton . Arenas has been suspended indefinitely by the NBA, and Crittenton has been excused from team activities while the legal process plays out. The team also suspended Andray Blatche for one game for unspecified behavior during Sunday's game against New Orleans.

WASHINGTON - - DeShawn Stevenson returned to Cleveland last week and got an instant reminder that there will always be one city in the United States that reviles him. When the Washington Wizards' plane landed at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport on Wednesday morning, the runway marshal greeted each member of the team until he spotted the scraggly bearded Stevenson. "I hate you," Stevenson recalls the airport employee telling him, to which Stevenson responded with an equally incensed retort.

Caron Butler is expected to return from a bruised left kneecap tonight in Cleveland, and Antawn Jamison, sidelined with a right shoulder injury, will make his season debut some time in the next few weeks. But through the first three games of the season, the Washington Wizards (2-1) have shown that even without an All-Star forward or two, they can succeed through double D: depth and defense. Neither had been present much in past seasons, when injuries left the Wizards without talented veterans, and an indifference to anything other than offense shortened their win totals and had them vacationing in May. President Ernie Grunfeld addressed his team's depth by trading for Randy Foye and Mike Miller and signing Fabricio Oberto, ensuring that when new coach Flip Saunders had to "change on the fly," he wouldn't have to rely on an unprepared or unproven youngster.

Washington traded Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday as a part of a seven-player deal, signaling the breakup of a disappointing Wizards team. The Mavericks dealt forwards Josh Howard and Drew Gooden and two other players to the Wizards. Dallas also got guard DeShawn Stevenson and cash considerations. The Wizards expected to contend for a playoff spot and instead have endured a miserable season that made it likely they would be active in slashing payroll before Thursday's trade deadline.

I do my best web surfing during lunch, and as I chowed down on a tasty turkey, cheddar and avocado sandwich, I stumbled across a segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live where Mike Tyson analyzed the tattoos of NBA players Kobe Bryant, Kenyon Martin and DeShawn Stevenson. He also danced. Enjoy the video while I finish my lunch.
