Caron Butler, one of the few, the happy few, members of the Washington Wizards these last few seasons before the team got blown up, returns to town this morning to, according to organizers, promote "a more bicycle-friendly America."

The Wizards' Javaris Crittenton, Wise writes, "already angry over a dispute over the game's rules, became irate [...]
