With Michael Jordan out of the picture in Washington, the Wizards are finally looking toward the future.
ESPN Insider has the latest news and notes from around the NBA.
With 22 games remaining, Michael Jordan has already played 62 more minutes than he did all of last season.
Counting tonight, nine of the Bulls' next 16 games are against lottery-bound teams.
Michael Jordan replaced him as the best shooting guard of all time, but Jerry West is still one of the best to ever play the game.
Stephon Marbury is hot. Theo Ratliff is not. And Tim Duncan and the Spurs are suddenly stuck in mediocrity.
Antoine Walker is hot. Mike Miller is not. And Gary Payton refuses to give in to age.
Michael Jordan should be a starter for the Wizards, he just shouldn't be playing every night.
