Miami is bringing Oden along slowly, hoping to mostly keep him encased in bubble wrap until they need the 7-foot bruiser in the playoffs to contend with Indiana’s Roy Hibbert in the Eastern Conference finals or possibly San Antonio’s Tim Duncan if they get together for an NBA Finals rematch. With the image of Oden’s last appearance still fresh in his memory, Webster is happy to see Oden back jumping again – and landing on both feet. “To see him come back from that is amazing,” Webster said. “That kid’s like a little brother to me. I’m very happy and proud of that kid, for making his entry back into the NBA. I felt he always should’ve been here and at the top. And the fact that he’s back and he looks healthy – he’s a step slow, but with time that’ll all come back – just in itself, through all the injuries and everything he’s gone through in life, just the fact that he’s out there and showing glimpses of the old Greg, hopefully, he can get it back on track.” Washington Post

And so, please do check out this video from Saturday night of Martell Webster and a teen-aged fan, somewhere in the depths of Verizon Center’s parking garage. The fan — who, with his suburban friends, likes to greet players in the parking garage after games — mistakenly called Webster “Chris Singleton.” Webster demanded an apology. This is what he got. Here’s to more fun stories featuring winning (or at least .500) teams, and fewer transcribed interviews about teams in disarray. Maybe. For a couple days, anyhow. Washington Post

“I don’t care. I just don’t care. It’s just not important to me,” Webster said of coming off the bench for the first time since Nov. 16. “We played great. It was a gut-checking win. The fact that we were able to come through adversity, it shows character. What we want to do is build on that.” Washington Post

A shirtless Martell Webster videobombed Wall toward the end of the media scrum. He stopped, flexed some muscles, kissed a bicep and slowly left. Wall, clearly used to his teammate’s shenanigans, didn’t miss a beat. Washington Post

After rehabilitating all summer, Nene is back and training with the Wizards a little less than a month before training camp begins. He is joined this week by the Wizards' key free agent acquisition, Eric Maynor. Al Harrington, who signed in August as a free agent, has yet to report because he is dealing with a family matter. John Wall, Bradley Beal, Glen Rice and Martell Webster already have been training at Verizon Center. CSNWashington.com
