Yes. Randy Wittman is a wizard. Not only as a coach, but in the way he can withstand this ball to the face without any serious damage. Seriously, that had to hurt.
Despite last night’s thumping to the hands of LeBron James, the Wizards have plenty to be thankful for nowadays. They’re 9-5, sit atop the Southeast Division and play in the Eastern Conference! Heck, fans even go to games now!
Us fans also have to thank the creators of Snapchat, because without them, we wouldn’t get to see Kevin Serpahin sing and rap while holding a snake.
Here’s what our favorite Wizards have to be thankful for:
John Wall: Adidas. Wall finally has his own shoe line, and they are flat out awesome. He has to be thankful for his teammates, especially Marcin Gortat who is a wizard off the pick-and-roll. Wall should also thank his parents for his genetics, because they sure raised one speedy kid. Wall’s speed allows him to blow by other defenders almost at will. It’s a good time for Mr. Wall.
Bradley Beal: Doctors. Beal came back before his target date and is back playing regular minutes with the Wizards. He’s averaging almost 15 points per game while shooting 44.6 percent from the floor. Let’s keep that wrist bandage on a little longer, Bradley.
Paul Pierce: His teammates. The Truth is aging, but it seems he has found the fountain of youth in D.C. Wall, Beal and Otto Porter’s youth and talent have allowed Wittman to manage Pierce’s minutes, and it’s working as he’s averaging 13.3 points on 41.4 percent shooting and 5.4 rebounds per game this season. Pierce doesn’t have to be the main guy and he can tag along for the playoff run.
Kevin Seraphin: Segways. The man loves riding around in segways, and who wouldn’t? Kslife also has to love the fact that Randy Wittman doesn’t even ponder playing DeJuan Blair. After seeing his minutes go from 21.8 per game in 2012-13, Seraphin only played 10.9 minutes per game last season. Well, his minutes are back up to 15.5 a game and he’s able to do stuff like this.
