On the surprising Wizards (12--6 at week's end) and their scoring trio of Antawn Jamison, Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes, who all played for the Warriors in 2001--02:
" Jamison has become a locker room leader, and his ability to get up shots quickly in a variety of ways is perfect for the Princeton offense. The two-guard front works because Arenas and Hughes can both run the point. What you're also seeing is three guys who have bounced around and now look like they're ready to work together and embrace stability. The longer guys play in losing situations, the more likely it is that they'll look in the mirror and try to learn from their mistakes. These three are trying to do that, and they've become a cohesive group."
