Somebody make "Sh*t Tim Tebow Says".
Second-year prospect <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/john-wall">John Wall</a> had a shaky rookie season thanks to a lingering injury.
On Thursday we shared with you the first basket of Denver Nugget Kenneth Faried's NBA career: a <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/01/nuggets-kenneth-faried-drops-the-best-first-nba-bucket-ever">thunderous, no-look alley-oop</a>.

Are you a Florida-based fan of the Washington Wizards.
As the Washington Wizards close out their home season tonight against the Celtics, one can't help but checking the work on last year's No.
It's no news that the Washington Wizards have been in the process of reverting back to their franchise's classic red, white, and blue color scheme, because I guess that's what you do when you play in the nation's capital.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/hedo-turkoglu-misses-a-dunk-badly"> There was no way we were going to <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/12/hedo-turkoglu-misses-a-dunk-badly">tease Turkoglu</a> for his failure to launch and let Andray Blatche slide for this despicable display of a fast break.
A gripe I've always heard from those who aren't as fond of the NBA as I am is that players don't take the regular season very seriously.
It has often been said after the dismissal of a prominent head coach that "You can't fire the infantry.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/03/gilbert-arenas-avoids-jail-time-in-sentence"> The <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/orlando-magic">Orlando Magic</a> were in the unfavorable situation of suffering a losing streak while two of their main rivals in Boston & Miami are in the midst of ripping off double digit win streaks of their own.
Washington Wizards rookie John Wall did The Dougie, whatever the hell that is, last night before nearly posting a triple double in his DC debut against the Sixers.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=144759"> Thank god Wall aped on the court last night (29 points, 13 assists, 9 steals, 8 turnovers) or this dance would've been highly criticized by armchair QBs and fantasy owners. Nice home opener for the rook. Still, the Dougie has to rank high as one of the most feminine dances that no man should ever do publicly or in front of a camera. You hear that <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=122621">Big Baby</a>.
As the Orlando Magic opened their season last night in the brand new Amway Center, the focus wasn’t on the game so much as it was on all of the wonderful side stories going down at the same time.
<a href="http://http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/5-anticipated-nba-games-in-2010-2011"> Forget the very real possibility of a NBA lockout for the moment. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/david-stern">David Stern</a> has been using this offseason to make sure he keeps his league <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/the-story-of-how-lebron-was-won">in the news</a>.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/john-walls-summer-league-debut"> D.C. is a proud sports town, even given the fact they haven't won anything of significance since the 'Skins 1991 Superbowl. This summer, however, has allowed the residents and the surrounding areas of Chocolate City to build some sense of hope. They've still got the best hockey player on the planet in Alex Ovechkin. Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb are allegedly going to lead the Redskins to the promised land. Steven Strasburg is hands down the hottest ticket in town. <a href="http://www.tedstake.com/">Ted Leonsis</a> is one of the best owners in sports while <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/08/AR2010060805083.html">recently assuming control</a> of the downtrodden Wizards.
When not brining stupid rap video dances to the masses, John Wall has been known to play some basketball here and there.
For the first time ever, Michael Jordan will be appearing on the cover of a SPORTS video game.
The Washington Wizards didn't really need another guard, but they'll probably end up with one anyway.
