As he dressed in the visitor's locker room after the Washington Wizards ' season-ending loss in Chicago, Jason Collins was pelted with a piece of ice. Glaring over at the direction of the toss, Collins spotted teammate Trevor Booker with an opened ice pack on his right wrist, playfully looking away as if he wasn't the culprit.

"I didn't even know what I was doing there," Wall said. It was that easy for Wall and the...
