Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:
GOLDWIRE FOR HIRE When you've spent as much of your career bouncing back and forth from the NBA to the CBA as Anthony Goldwire has, getting called up for a 10-day contract is like a kid taking a trip to Disney World.
When the Wizards called him, Goldwire, who was with the Yakima (Wash.) Sun Kings of the CBA, hopped on a red-eye flight to get here.
"This is a chance for me to play and a chance for me to play with a great one [in Michael Jordan]," said Goldwire, who has done stints with San Antonio and Denver. "[Jordans] on a roll right now. So all you really try to do is come in and match his intensity on the defensive end and do the little things. My thing is I want to continue to play my game but fit it in with the style the Wizards are playing. But what you have to remember is that you're playing with one of the best. You have to continue to let him do his thing."
Goldwire's only complaint was his first-class flight to Washington. Apparently they have seats in first class that don't recline.
"The seat didn't go back," Goldwire said. "It was a five-hour flight. I was wishing for it to end. But as uncomfortable as it was, I'd do it again."
