Randy Wittman went off on WUSA9′s Kevin Jones after he compared the 25-44 Washington Wizards to a circus. You probably shouldn’t say that to the head coach, even if you have a case.
According to J. Michael, CSN Washington:
Coach Randy Wittman just went ballistic on a local TV reporter comparing franchise to a circus.
The exact question: “the circus was here this past weekend. Is it a relief to u that this is no longer a circus?”
Wittman: ”You didnt seriously just ask me that question, about the (expletive) circus being in town? Are you (expletive) me?..You called this organization a circus at one time. So I’m not going to answer that question….I’m part of the damn circus. It’s not a circus around here…. I don’t want to hear that no more. That’s disrespectful”
Kevin Jones explains incident:
Wizards people: I phrashed a poor question to Randy Wittman and he let me have it. We shot the **** about it 20 minutes later. No big deal.
