This is a PSA courtesy of Wizards Exreme:
Is your 5-game road trip becoming tiresome? Are you seeking some sort of momentum before you return back home? Are you frustrated for not being considered an elite team?
Well, look no further! Whether you are a big market, small market…heck, even the supermarket, it makes no difference. Come visit the Verizon Center where our basketball team can make you feel like a contender on any given night!!

Forgive me for that. Let's talk about last night..
So after the Wizards’ win over the Cavs a few nights ago, I failed to post a few of the post-game player interviews. The reason being the loud racket of noise blaring around the locker room from joyous young men laughing and joking amongst themselves after earning a rare victory.
I didn’t’ have that problem last night after the Wizards got routed by the Golden State Warriors 120-100.
If there is any person in this world whose gut feeling you can trust, it’s probably coach Randy Wittman's.
“I had a sense before the game we weren’t ready to play,” Wittman admitted after the game.
“I’ll take responsibility for that, because I’m going to clean that up. That is unprofessional. I apologize to everybody that had to watch it and had to come here tonight.”
Unfortunately, Wittman along with the rest of us still had to witness exactly how unready the boys were and they wasted no time showing us as they unraveled almost immediately, surrendering 41 points in the first quarter.
That was enough to set the tone for the rest of the game, as the Wizards never posed a threat, trailing by as much as 24.
The Warriors, on the tail end of a 5-game road trip and a back-to-back, looked sharper than Jan Vesely’s haircut, shooting 55% from the field, 65% from beyond the arc and 93% from the free throw line.
Combine that with 16 missed free throws by the Wizards along with 15 turnovers and yeah, coach, you nailed it, you’re probably not going to win the game.
But that’s not all that went wrong at the Booth last night. Andray Blatche cued the boo birds once again, not simply because his lack of production, but merely because of his unwanted presence.
“It’s very frustrating. I’m just hoping to fight over it and overcome it,” Blatche said as I fumbled through my blazer pockets for a Kleenex.
Blatche finished with 4 points and 4 rebounds in 13 minutes of action.
Wittman vows to clean up the mess he was responsible for. He's got his work cut out for him as Kobe and the Lake Show pay a visit to Chinatown tomorrow night.
