Minnesota was without Rubio & Love for a good chunk of games, they didn't collapse.
Ted will make continue to make excuses though.
When Wall finally comes back, if we still don't win, Leonsis will transition from blaming injuries to blaming a lack of chemistry as a result of not playing together.
Idk if everyone assumed that Orlando was going to be the worst team in the league, but I do think that everyone thought they were a lock for the number 1 pick.
There is no can't miss franchise guy this year. They might actually let the lottery play out naturally.
Nah, first he will say they are playing bad because of game time rust. Then lack of chemistry. Then the coach will be blamed and take the fall.Quote:

Geez, Andy Pollin on 980 just told an old-school Bullets story from the 90's. For those who don't know, Andy Pollin is the nephew of Abe Pollin. He's been on 980 since the start of the station in the early 90's.
Anyway, this story. I've actually heard it before, way back when, but had forgotten about it. For you younger fans, this is our legacy:
When Rasheed Wallace was here, he wore #30. We ended up trading Sheed to Portland for Rod Strickland. (Probably a dumb trade in retrospect (never trade big for small) but goddamn I loved Strick and he was instrumental in getting us to the playoffs that first year). Anyway, just a couple of months after we traded Sheed, we signed Ben Wallace as an undrafted free agent. Rather than printing up new uniforms the Bullets told Ben Wallace that he had to wear #30. Didn't ask him what number he wanted, we just gave it to him. So we could save money. And since we already had #30 Wallace jersey's in the store. This is our Bullets/Wizards.
I thought that was funny.
I heard that story before. Joke of a franchise.
I usually root for blowout losses now to ensure Grunfeld is out of here as quick as possible, but not tonight. **** Blatche, we must win this game.
Phil has an awful looking stye on his eye.

That was a nice little play to get Oak that dunk.

Holy **** Nene just flattened Gerald Wallace.
Nene is so good.

I'm liking this lineup a lot.
Nene is absolutely balling right now.
Open shots are falling, lets hope it continues.
Holy moley, this is looking like a real team on offense. Getting open looks AND hitting them!
Oh, man, Verizon booing the hell out of Blatche, awesomeness!!!
Andray is such a douche...
At some point, hopefully he's gone, Ernie Grunfeld stops drafting Euro-ballers...
