The Wizards opened training camp last night on the campus of George Mason University, with a first-of-it's-kind NBA Midnight Madness. Our very own Mike Prada was there, and has a preliminary recap up on our Wizards blog, Bullets Forever.
We supplement that coverage with photos from the event, courtesy of Lisa Rotter/SB Nation. We start, obviously, with John Wall, laughing it up at his first official practice as a professional.
By all accounts, the event was a rousing success, and a great way to kick off a new season, and hopefully a new era in Wizards basketball. More pictures after the jump.
Gilbert Arenas, with his new jersey number, and a pretty healthy beard.
Probably the most interesting matchup you'll see during training camp, and yet, Andray Blatche has found something more interesting to look at.
I think the only caption for this one is; WOOOOOOSH!!!
Today's must-reads from around the SB Nation network:
- More from Wizards camp: Bullets Forever has additional perspective on the upcoming season from Wizards coach Flip Saunders.
- Ken Meringolo at Hogs Haven has the last, and therefore most definitive, recap of the Redskins debacle from Sunday.
- Over at SB Nation.com Ben Prather takes a look at the newest BCS rankings, and also tries to predict their future.
On Tap today at SB Nation D.C.: Brian Murphy considers the unthinkable; that Albert Haynesworth might just be the voice of reason on the Redskins right now.
