Click here to view the embedded video. The Washington Wizards played the Charlotte Bobcats Tuesday night in a game that made all 6 viewers at home say “can’t we just contract one of these teams and combine the rosters?” The game was so unappealing that even the referees appeared to tune out at one point. The Set-Up: with just over three minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Jan Vesely and Tyrus Thomas got tangled up, and a foul was called on Thomas. But a funny thing happened during Vesely’s trip to the free throw line. The Switch: Sensing everyone’s apathy towards the game, Wizards guard Jordan Crawford, who is clearly out of the play, stepped up to the line in place of Vesely. To be fair, this happens from time to time and referees are pretty adept at catching it. But rarely does it involve a player so far away from the play. Crawford, an 80% free throw shooter (Vesely is now 1-9 on the season), calmly stepped to the line and sank the first free throw. At this point, he’s trying hard not to laugh at his great fortune. And for a fleeting moment, he’s getting away with it — and he knows it. Alas, in this era of high definition and multiple camera angles, the jig was up after one make, and order was quickly restored. Props to Jordan Crawford though, for adding a moment of levity to a duel of bottom-feeders. Even though most of the circus has left Washington — Javale McGee, Nick Young, Andray Blatche — it’s nice to see at least one Wizards player can still provide some comic relief. via Truth About It     Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
