The generation of social media we live in today has bridged many connections between fans and the rest of the sports world, granting in-depth access to their favorite teams and athletes with a simple click of a button. It's the type of access our daddys would have only dreamed of having. Here at Wizards Extreme, WE bless Wizards fans with a segment that reveals the week’s top Wizards-related tweets, Facebook statuses, Instagram uploads, AIM away messages and just about anything else you'd surf across. Whether it’s posted by a Wizard or about a Wizard, we’ll be sure to find it, and expose it. Saam Bozorgmehr (@DJ_Saam) continues our weekly tradition with his own findings and posts..
Leandro Barbosa's Wizards highlight-reel
While the Wizards have been continuing to improve and make strides that give us hope towards a better season next year, one can't help but notice the play of Leandro Barbosa. I seriously can't even begin to describe how valuable he's been to this team. The conference call chats with Cartier Martin and Jan Vesely from the bench (them on the bench, him in his mansion) have done wonders for Chris Singleton's improved play, John Wall's jumper and the emergence of a healthy Trevor Booker. His "personal experience" as it relates to leg injuries has been a great addition to the moral of players like John Wall, Nene and a recently injury plagued Bradley Beal. Thank you Ernie Grunfeld! Barbosa's been so good, that I decided to make a montage of all the great moments he's had for the Wizards this year, let me know which one is your favorite!
Who Needs Geico when you have Martell Webster?
GEICO isn't the only one who can save you 15% or more on something. If you follow Martell Webster on Twitter, you can save some money too. I'm a big movie fan and it's been very publicly documented on my Facebook page. I go to the movies all the time, any day, for no reason. I'm an addict. It's been something I've loved to do since my dad used to take me as a kid. After working clubs full time and your spare time being dedicated to researching music or making mixes, the few times you have to yourself is precious, and for me, the movie theater is my safe haven.
Martell recently went to the movies to check out the new James Franco rendition of "OZ" and, in so many words, told us all to stay away. Thank goodness because I was literally about to go see it the next day. I loved "The Wizard of Oz" as a kid and I was curious to see how this played out. Well, Today is Friday March 22nd, 2013 and because of Martell Webster, I am now $14 richer and can afford to watch "Olympus Has Fallen" later this afternoon.
How can you not love this guy? Make sure you follow him and send him a tweet.
T.G.I.F. from Me and Greivis Vasquez
I'm extremely proud to be a Maryland Terrapin basketball fan and graduate. In that order. In honor of Maryland making the Not Invited Tournament this week, I would like to wish you all a great and happy weekend on behalf of myself and Greivis Vasquez -- easily the most underrated player in the league and the best point guard in the history of the Maryland Terrapins. This picture was taken the weekend after he was drafted. He hosted a celebration party in which I was asked to DJ. It was a UMD reunion of sorts for me, and it was also on a Friday ;)
