The Wizards Said WHAT? Mo Evans on Jeremy Lin’s Dunk: ‘It’s Just Wizards Basketball Right Now’

Updated: February 9, 2012

Look, the Washington Wizards gave Jeremy Lin a wide open lane to dunk. You understand, don’t you? Let’s watch.


Yikes. Not good. I’m not sure if Jordan Crawford or Mo Evans or Jan Vesely froze, but… um… wow. John Wall and Trevor Booker also totally got duped by Lin turning down Tyson Chandler’s screen. So, team effort. Evans was asked about the dunk after the game. Let’s watch his answer.


Yes, it is just Wizards basketball right now. Also, take note of the crowd cheering Lin’s dunk. Very loud.

John Wall on the Verizon Center fans:

“When you play against certain teams, you already know the crowd is against us sometimes. So we just go out there and play. You make it a game, the crowd gets on your side.”

The Wizards lost 107-93 to the New York Knicks on Wednesday night. You can read a piece I wrote about the game on’s Daily Dime.

The Miami Heat come to Washington on Friday.

This has been a very special edition of ‘The Wizards Said WHAT?’

Oh yea, John Wall had a dunk too, Lin was around for that… but Wall’s team also lost, so things are different when that happens.
