Last night was busy. About 200 of my friends have a private party every year and that was last night. In addition, the Miami Heat were in town to take on the Washington Wizards. Earlier in the day, the Wizards and the Orlando Magic executed a trade that sent Gilbert Arenas to the Magic (i.e. in exchange for Rashard Lewis). There was also talk before the trade was "announced" that President Obama would be at the game. Needless to say, and maybe it was coincidental, after the trade was announced word spread that the President bailed and skipped the game. **** I think I read that he had a scheduling conflict.
I arrived at the Verizon Center late, because I had to get ready and bring a dress with me for the party I'd be heading to after the game. By the time I got to the arena, I missed the player introductions and the opening tip. **** I hate when I miss the opening tip of a game. I checked the score board and the Wizards were winning. Specifically, I remember Nick Young was ballin'. It's definitely Nick's turn to shine, now that Gilbert Arenas is gone.
