Basketblogging: Now Elsewhere

This season I'm going to be writing about the Wizards for DCist in an effort to prevent this site from becoming unduly hoops-centric. My first item is up today in anticipation of the season opener tonight in Cleveland. I'm a 'Zards-optimist relative to the CW (see also, I'm a Wizards fan) though not as much of an optimist as Bill Simmons who, I think, is overestimating both DC and New Jersey (incidentally, these squads get compared a lot because they're both led by a "big three" on the perimeter, but they're very different -- last year NJ was slow, defensively brilliant, and offensively inept; Washington was more-or-less the opposite).
