After returning home, Washington Wizards guard Martell Webster found himself without a way home, so he took matters into his own hands, as the NBA player slept in his car at the airport.According to the Washington Post, who talked to Webster, the Wizards guard arrived in Washington D.C.'s Dulles International Airport on Saturday. Webster went on to tell the newspaper that he tried to enter into his car only to realize that he had left his keys in Kansas City, MO.Luckily he had an app on his phone which allowed him to open the car door, but unfortunately the app couldn't start up the car for him."Good thing I have a wife that loves me. She came and got me," Webster told the newspaper. "I slept in my car for two hours. I'm not going to lie. I called my wife I was like, 'You know what it is 3:30. I'll let you sleep a couple more hours but you need to come get me.' And she got me, we're good."He went on to say that by the time he realized that his keys was in the middle of the country, everyone (the team) were gone from the airport."I didn't want to call anyone, I don't mind. I'm from the Northwest, we do weird stuff like sleep in our cars - not a problem," Webster said.
