The Wizards have made enough roster adjustments that it begs the question: Where does Garrett Temple fit in? The 6-6 guard, who re-signed as a free agent to a one-year deal at just less than $1 million, is competing with Eric Maynor and rookie Glen Rice for backup spots in the backcourt. He gives the Wizards a uniquely different look because of his length and defensive prowess. "Honestly, I don't think much is going to change. Me and my agent talked to (president) Ernie (Grunfeld) before I signed. He said I'm basically in the same position as last year," Temple said. "I'm gonna push for that second spot behind John (Wall). They brought in Eric who is a good point guard who can back up John. I'm also going to be looking for that second spot behind Brad (Beal) being a defender. The main thing is still my versatility being able to guard point guards, (shooting) guards and small forwards if need be." CSNWashington.com

When he finally got drafted, Rice spoke to his famous father, a three-time NBA all-star, who told him: “Congratulations. Don’t get complacent. Keep working.” Rice said he has no plans of being satisfied, because there is so much left to accomplish: “I’m happy to be here, happy to be a part of this team. Couldn’t think of any other place rather than here. I’m just happy with how it turned out. Just ready to work.” Washington Post

Whether G-Force can one day become a rival to the UFC or be acquired by the MMA behemoth like Strikeforce was last March remains to be seen, but right now Rice has his mind focused on setting up the next event, most likely in Chicago, Puerto Rico or Houston. When asked why he didn't just soak up the sun on South Beach and enjoy the millions he'd earned in the NBA, Rice explains that he felt the need to stay active and help young athletes achieve their dreams. "I can't say it wasn't a (financial) risk but it wasn't a big enough risk to make me give up trying to help these guys get to that next level," Rice said. "I mean, come on. When I was growing up, people took a chance on me. So I said, 'Why not be able to take a chance on these guys?' " Yahoo! Sports

Unfortunately, Rice allegedly acted like he was in the octagon himself in 2008 when he was arrested on a felony battery charge for beating a man he found in his estranged wife's closet (the charges were dropped). Said Rice of the incident: "I think one of the things I tried to do mostly was just understand that it was something that happened and something that was going to blow by because (there) was a lot of things that were said that happened that were untruths. When things like that happen, you brush it off and move on. You learn from it. And that's what I've done." Yahoo! Sports

The latest incarnation of Bravo’s "Real Housewives" franchise, set in Miami, stars Larsa Pippen, wife of former Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen, and Christy Rice, ex-wife of former NBA star Glen Rice. Pippen, a mother of four with Scottie Pippen (he has four other children), and Rice, now raising her three kids without her former husband, are just two of the six women featured, but they have some interesting back stories. Pippen, a Lebanese-American, has been married to Scottie Pippen since 1997 and was once known as the NBA’s hottest wife. Rice and her ex-husband divorced in part over expenses related to an $8 million dollar home they were building together in Miami. An additional factor was when Glen Rice discovered another man hiding in her closet. Florida Courier

The Miami edition of the "Real Housewives" series, which started in Orange County as good, not-always-clean fun, adds a Latino twist to the mix. This proves that in America, women of all races, creeds and colors can create and nurture tedious little dramas from pretty much nada. The marquee name for the Miami cast is Larsa Pippen, wife of former NBA star Scottie Pippen. She explains in her introductory remarks that it's not easy being her - because after mothering four kids, cooking and maintaining Scottie's schedule, she still has an NBA wife's responsibility to "look cute" at the end of the day. She has a near-colleague in Cristy Rice, who was married for 11 years to former NBA star Glen Rice, but now that they've divorced isn't getting along so well with him. That sometimes happens with, you know, divorce. New York Daily News

This morning, Jorge Sedano (790TheTicket) asked Glen Rice question I’d intended to ask yesterday, if not for a game of phone tag. What’s it like going from a first option to a third? “If you want to win, it’s an easy transition,” Rice said. “And I really feel (Chris) Bosh wants to win. To me, it seems like he’s accepted that role. Is it something new? Absolutely. Is it something that you get right away? No. You’ve got to get used to it. But when you have the type of caliber players that Bosh has in front of him, it’s a much, much easier situation to just sit back and just say, ‘Hey, you know what, I’m going to chip in when I need to chip in, I’m going to be be there for these guys when I’m needed. And I’m just going to enjoy the show and work as hard as possible.’” “I mean, it takes a lot of pressure off him as well.” Palm Beach Post
