It felt like the weekend at the Patriot Center this morning for the Wizards’ fifth day of training camp. The guys, although going at it full speed for the time they practiced, received a bit of a treat from Randy Wittman as the practice ended shortly after 12pm (about an hour earlier than scheduled).
It was no surprise that Wittman ended things earlier as the entire team looked pretty beat. Wittman noted, “Yeah they’re tired, mentally as physically. That’s why tomorrow (first game versus the Bobcats) is usually not a real pretty sight.”
Wittman and crew do however seem ready to take on the first real challenge of the season in their preseason game versus the Charlotte Bobcats. Randy and nearly every other player mentioned that the big focus point is cutting down on the turnovers. With a team that has this type of speed but also is rather young, everyone believes that turnovers are going to be the key to their success.

Nobody posts the worst winning percentage of all-time then sprints toward the playoffs. Not unless they draft a young Michael Jordan, anyway.
Unfortunately for the Charlotte Bobcats, Jordan is retired and sticking to his role as team owner.
But there does appear to be some good news. Namely, the fact the Bobcats sort of reshaped the roster -- adding No. 2 overall draft pick Michael...
