Washington Wizards: When Wizard forward Kwame Brown looks up now, he no longer sees Michael Jordan or Doug Collins in his face. "It's a sigh of relief," the former No. 1 pick said to the Washington Post. "Everyone can breathe easy, well, not so much breathe easy, but everything that happened last year is over. There are no grudges. You get to prove yourself all over again to new coaches and a new staff. A lot of us are looking forward to it." Brown noted the difference in playing for a traditional coach in front of a traditional general manager instead of Jordan, who essentially was doing both jobs. "It's refreshing in a lot of ways," Brown said.
