The normal practice and press conference was held today. The Wizards ran throught some standard drills and scrimmages. Nothing really stood out. A couple players started to get testy with each other but quickly calmed down.
Afterwards I had a chance to talk to Jack for a couple minutes. I will try to post the audio a little later today.
At the press conference, coach said everyone was healthy enough to play. He said Harrington and Arnaud were a little dinged up and would be gametime decisions.
The player at the press conference today was Claudio Lopez. He tends to shy away from the press normally but when he does open up he is very engaging.
Claudio and his interpreter Arcelio (?)
Robert Whitman asked him about Argentina at the Olympics and Claudio visibly brightened. He became much more animated and spoke english on his own.
