The Wizards have won three games in a row for the first time since 2008, and given the negativity that has plagued the organization during that stretch, I'm not going to sit here and mock that accomplishment, even if those wins have come against teams with a combined record of 74-156. Three wins is three wins, and the organization is allowed to be happy about that publicly.â†µ
What I will do, though, is wonder about the statement Ted Leonsis just made on his blog.â†µ
â†µâ†µA new big three has announced its arrival - Wall, Crawford and Blatche. Big minutes - big productivity - big results. And wins, too.â†µ
I get the intent here to prop up three players who have had their ups and downs. I get that there will always be negativity surrounding a 21-56 team, and this is just a way to counter it and allow the players to hear from the man who really matters.â†µ
But if I'm Nick Young, JaVale McGee, Mo Evans, Othyus Jeffers, Yi Jianlian or, hell, anyone else on the team, I'm not sure how I feel about being left out.
