That’s so wizard

Tomorrow night, the Wizards tip off their 2006-2007 season in Cleveland vs. LeBron James and the Caviliers. Coincidently, their home opener on Saturday is with the Boston Celtics with whom the late Red Auerbach worked for over 50 years. Auerbach, a GWU grad, who remained a Washingtonian all those years with the Celtics, died on Sunday. It would not be surprising to see a tribute Saturday night.

In other Wizards news, the team has new alternate uniforms — gold jerseys and black shorts. Earlier this week, Mike Wise of The Post told the Gilbert Areans (his blog) story in two parts. Free agent acquisition Darius Songalia will be out up to three months following back surgery. Etan Thomas will start over Brendan Haywood at center. Lastly, if you were wondering what former Bullet/Wizard Gheorghe Muresan has been up to (about 7-7 *rim shot*), wonder no more — he’s fishing.

    There will also be a tribute to him tomorrow night at the GMU men’s exhibition game. 89 is pretty good for a storied cigar-chomper. RIP Red!
