For no reason other than the fact that he is my favorite athlete of all time in any sport, narrowly edging Eddie Murray, I periodically look for Juan Dixon news online. The man who carried the Terps to the 2002 National Championship is basically without a team right now after finishing the season with the Pistons (but being unforgivably left off the playoff roster). The big name free agents have been scooped up; now it's guys like Dixon, Kwame Brown, and P.J. Brown looking for a home. If Gilbert Arenas had anything to do with it, Juan would find his way back to Washington, wouldn't that be cool?
Here's what Gilbert recently said about Dixon on his blog:
Juan Dixon -- Juan is one of those players out there that needs a team, because he can really help out with scoring. He needs a team to just let him play. I’ve played with a lot of players in my time in the league, and he has to be one of the top five I’ve played with in terms of points per minute. He’s just a high volume scorer. If you gave him 40-plus minutes of playing time, he’d give you 20-plus points per game average. He’s like a bigger Ben Gordon. We’ll see where he ends up. I’ll take him back in D.C. right now.
