Jordans throw going-away party in DC


New Sixers coach Eddie Jordan and wife Charrisse threw a going-away party Saturday for 150 friends and neighbors at  "Jordan Arena" -- their home in Potomac, Md.

"We have a lot of great relationships in Washington," Charrisse said. "The way things ended [with the Wizards], there was no closure. It's a celebration of friendship."

A nice touch -- the invitations looks like Sixers game tickets. Among the guests was Ed Tapscott, the Wizards' coach after Jordan was fired, but no Wizards players.

The Jordans plan to buy a home in Philadelphia, but also keep the place in Maryland.

"It's the nature of the business," Eddie said. "You don't really think about it. You try to do your best on a daily basis, then make it last 20 years."
