The Oklahoma City Thunder have been tied to the Wizards all season long. It started in the off-season when Washington turned down a trade that would have sent Bradley Beal and Chris Singleton to the Thunder for James Harden. Then, with the season in full swing sans John Wall, the Wiz fell to 5-28 and their 34th game of the season was against OKC. With Wall returning the next game...
It must be hard to be one of the elite talents in the NBA and be stuck on a poor team like the Washington Wizards. So when he gets a nasty elbow like the one that Klay Thompson from the Warriors gave him Saturday it is understandable that he be a little upset.
What is not understandable is how he can keep running his mouth long after the play is done that the refs feel till the...
