I wonder if Flip is sorry he ever answered Ernie’s phone call last summer. Flip said that Andre Blatche’s response to his advice was the most disappointing event of his coaching career. Hasn’t Andre seen that the Wizards are letting anyone and everyone go. Doesn’t Blatche realize that if a team can lose 12 in a row with him, what value does he really have. It was just really a lacklustre effort tonight but without its most potent offensive weapon, the Wizards just could not score. I haven’t been to many games this year because of the Terrapins great success, but tonight was upsetting. Flip Saunders is a pretty smart guy and he realizes the fans pay to see the team win and to watch the stars on the team. Andre backed the coach into a corner.
On the positive side, I really liked the energy of Al Thornton and JaVal McGee. These might be the only 2 guys to remain on this team next year. It is a great credit to DC basketball fans that they continue to show up despite the poor performance of the team. There was no MJ spotting tonight.
