Lil’ Earl Boykins Headed to DC

The Wizards’ mounting injury problems have left them with no choice but to sign the diminutive and beloved point guard: “Down to one healthy point guard, the Washington Wizards signed 11th-year veteran Earl Boykins on Wednesday to back up Gilbert Arenas while the club waits for the healthy return of three other players at that position. ‘Earl is a proven veteran point guard who will provide us with leadership and stability off of the bench,’ Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said.”

    I know they want him coming off the bench, but… can’t they just play him and Arenas together? I mean, Arenas is not a true point guard anyways… (well neither is Boykins… but..still)

    I have been waiting for someone to pick him up he is a beast! I remember a few years back when he dropped16 in ot against the sonics, my boy was in disbelief that such a small dude could do that. Since that day he has always been one of my faves

    I give him 4 games, before he goes down with an injury. I wouldn’t be surprised if he twist his ankle in his first game, Just as an initiation type of deal for Joining the Wizards, and donning a Wizards jersey. Like a rite of passage kinda of deal!
