Found October 26, 2011 on NBC Washington:
We don’t watch The View. But we do watch The Daily Show, and Tuesday night’s “moment of zen” caught our eye for a good reason. Apparently the ladies of the daytime talk show have been wearing NBA jerseys, and recently, it was the Wizards turn to get the honors. As you can see from the high quality picture we took of our TV as we were falling asleep, Sherri Shepherd and Elizabeth Hasselbeck donned the prototype No.11 Wizards jerseys that were introduced this past spring and modeled by John Wall and Jordan Crawford. We spoke to a team spokesman who confirmed that the show reached out to the Wizards directly to request the jerseys. Sherri and Elizabeth, combined with Wale’s prior jersey modeling, means that the uniforms have made more public appearances on celebrities than on actual Wizards players.  Photo Credit: Sarah Kogod

The View Digs the New Wizards Jerseys

Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck from ABC’s ‘The View’ are seen wearing their Wizards jerseys on the show.   Um, is there even a season that this actually matters? I will say that the throwback style is definitely badass and I sure wish that there was a way to resurrect Manute Bol but honestly I’m not sure “The View” is the go to route for NBA promotions.

Up until now, Jordan Crawford’s biggest accomplishment had been dunking on LeBron James during an offseason run (the infamous dunk footage that Nike tried to confiscate in 2009.) He’s now talking about one day being better at basketball than Michael Jordan. The Wizards may not be a very good team right now, but they do set some awfully big goals for themselves. Per the WaPo...
