The generation of social media we are living in today has bridged many connections between fans and the rest of the sports world, granting access to their favorite teams and athletes. The type of access our daddys would have only dreamed of attaining. So this year, WE are proud to offer Wizards fans a segment that will reveal the week’s top three Wizards-related tweets, Facebook statuses, Instagram uploads, perhaps an AIM away message even. Whether it’s posted by a Wizard or about a Wizard, we’ll be sure to find it, and expose it. Jamal A. Smith kicks us off with this week's fun findings.. Tweet #1: Illustration of Seraphin dunking on Kobe  This is a very cool picture of Kevin Seraphin, post-dunk, swinging from the rim, looking down at a masked Kobe Bryant.  This is presumably a moment that actually occurred, but did Seraphin actually call Kobe “MAD”?  If so, what for?  Is Kobe envious of Kevin’s Spongebob backseat passenger, or simply upset that he has a crotch swinging in his face? These are the questions. Tweet #2 – Michael Lee’s tweet on Washington’s draft history Michael Lee tweeted a sobering statistic from @roopstigo, stating that the 18 Wizards players drafted between Kwame Brown in 2001 and John Wall in 2010 are all no longer with the team. In my opinion, this fact illustrates a historical failure to not only evaluate talent, but to develop it.  While Kevin Seraphin is showing promise of breaking this trend, nearly all of his predecessors did not enjoy such success. Playoff years notwithstanding, I used to get very excited about lottery picks and the prospect of young players – any young players – coming in to be the franchise cornerstone the team has so desperately lacked for years. But this tweet reminds us that landing the talent is only a fraction of the work. Tweet #3 – Ted Leonsis’s tweet about Wall & Bieber Justin Bieber played a show at the Verizon Center earlier this week, sending the hearts of many girls (and men) racing.  Ted Leonsis was excited, and according to his tweet, so too was John Wall. While I was hoping the tweet explained how Ted and John had an elaborate date night, Ted’s blog entry instead guided us to a Washington Post write-up on how Bieber and Wall met in the Verizon Center before the concert.  There were pictures included, too.  And for some reason, Bieber’s chosen mode of transportation was a Segway (a shot at Javale)? But seriously, can Bieber set up an offense?  What’s his shot selection like?
