Ted Leonsis is the personable, savvy businessman that currently owns the Washington Wizards and the Washington Capitals. He is the kind of guy that knows how to market his team perfectly, which stands in stark contrast to the infamous Susan O'Malley. He also has a star player on his team that did the Dougie as he was introduced in his first NBA home game, which everyone but Colin Cowherd found awesome.â†µ
So naturally, Leonsis found a clever way to turn John Wall's dance into a marketing ploy of sorts. On his blog today, Leonsis said that he would actually attempt to do the Dougie if the Wizards sold out a game.â†µ
Sorry, I had to get up on a soap box. We need your help. We play this Saturday night. We need and want you to be in attendance. The team plays better in front of a sold out building. Come support the team. Click here. Off of soap box now.â†µ
When we have a total paid sellout this season, I will do the "Dougie" - I promise.â†µ
I'm honestly not sure how many people will buy a ticket just to see a team owner attempt to do a dance, but if that number is any higher than zero, then Leonsis deserves props.â†µ
UPDATE: In case you were wondering, Leonsis says the Heat, Lakers and Celtics games don't count.
