The Washington Wizards are 18 games under .500 and on their way to another losing season. And with that realization comes frustration for all those associated with the franchise, especially the head coach. It only takes one silly question from a reporter, to get a coach whose patience at this stage of this season must be at its lowest after having to be present and accountable to the media following all those losses, to go on a mini tirade. So it’s was understandable when Wizards coach Randy Wittman, went off on a reporter who compared his team to a circus. CSN Washington has the blow-by-blow: “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 you 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) … 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.’” The reporter sent out this tweet explaining what happened. 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 — Kevin Jones (@Mr_KevinJones) March 25, 2013 The team record doesn’t show it, but the Wizards have taken some significant steps forward. John Wall, is playing at a very high level and Bradley Beal’s play has him in contention for the Rookie of the Year award, not to mention all the impressive victories they’ve had over contending teams. For the first time in a long time, there’s something to look forward to from that organization.
