VIDEO: Ted Leonsis Gives A Sneak Preview Of His Dougie

Earlier last week, Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said he would do the Dougie if the Wizards managed to have a sellout this season (not counting the Miami, Boston or Lakers games). Because he's Ted Leonsis, and because it's the Dougie, a dance that, let's face it, men like Ted Leonsis do not often do, it became an Internet sensation.

Today, in an interview with WTOP, Leonsis was asked about his promise. He said that "nothing inspired me," and that it was merely a throwaway line in a blog post that "went viral." But let's be clear: Leonsis is too clever for something like that to be random. Maybe he wasn't "inspired" by anything, but he was trying to generate some buzz.

Case it point: he actually showed off a sneak peak of his "Dougie."

Leonsis says he has the shoulder thing down, but needs to work on the hip movement. Personally, I say he should just do his own version of the "Dougie." Hips be dammed. If John Wall can create his own personal version of the dance, why can't Ted?
