To lighten up the mood surrounding Tuesday night’s first Wizards home preseason contest , (aka Emo Gil Niner’s “sacrifice gesture”) here is a footage of the Jumbo-Tron montage reminding fans that the team is “back.”
Also, new PA announcer Ralph Wesley made his Wizards debut along with Nick Young’s fresh pregame handshake that Yi Jianlian hysterically enjoyed, but Kirk Hinrich is not down with yet.
Coach Flip Saunders and John Wall discussed several topics in their post game interview. Saunders addressed his impressions of the victory, Wall’s play and Arenas being a very coachable player. Wall spoke about his first game in front of the home crowd, picking up two quick fouls, his adjustment to the NBA game and how he is handling being selected as a team captain at only 20-years old.
