Apparently D.C. is treating "Wizards fever" like an actual venereal disease. Because they're staying away in droves. The winless Wizards are listed on StubHub.com for next to nothing. That's not an exaggeration, either. With the Wizards playing the Raptors Tuesday night, not exactly a marquee matchup, starting prices or the upper-upper deck are $1.00 per ticket.
Want a VIP box? $75 dollars! Lower bowl behind the basket? $6 dollars! Get 'em while they're stagnant in sub-zero temperatures.
Meanwhile, Rashard Lewis on Monday had to refute a CSN Washington report that he skipped Sunday's game because of an argument with assistant coach Sam Cassell.
But hey, Flip Saunders' job is safe, so they've got that going for them. Meanwhile, the Washington Posthas a quote from an Eastern Conference GM which hits the nail on the head.
An Eastern Conference assistant general manager echoed that the Wizards need to establish a culture of accountability and high character to deliver a successful rebuild. “No team in the league, if the environment was good, would be 0-for-the-season,” he said. “Whatever the optimum each guy has, it’ll never be realized when it’s dysfunctional. The talent on that roster can’t win. You can’t win with Andray Blatche. I don’t care what anybody says. He has talent. He has some talent. But tell me where he’s won. . . . John Wall is a young player. Where’s the veteran leadership for those guys? Gilbert [Arenas] was the former example. What kind of example was that?”via Wizards’ woes stem from from lack of talent and losing culture, executives say - The Washington Post.
And that's why you can get Wizards tickets for the change in your couch.
