It isn't just about Crawford it is also about all the deals leading up to this. If you can't see that i suggest a visit to the eye doctor.

Meh, Wizards games can still be fun to go to. I was in "boycott" mode earlier this year, but went to a couple games recently(Bulls and Knicks wins)and had a good time. Ted's not gonna sell anytime soon so boycotting isn't gonna do jack.
Eric Maynor is the worst basketball player I've ever seen.

There's a million posts already dedicated to how sucky Leonsis and Grunfeld are.

Crawford is certainly not the straw that broke the camels back. Acting as if it was is absurd.
..let's keep in mind that while the Wizards were trading for Okafor and Ariza, giving away a draft pick and cap room, bypassing the free agent market and rejecting a trade for Harden, Leonsis was publicly congratulating himself for being smart. - Nivek

I'm boycotting both the Wizards and Caps for the foreseeable future. It's httr, vamos United, let's go Nats and Hoya Saxa for me until some significant changes are made within those organizations.

:D

Crawford for nothing is like the straw that broke the camel's back...

It's not about Crawford but rather it's about knowing I wanted Millsap, who went #47, when this GM burnt a first round pick on Pecherov. This GM has trumped that by giving away a 5th pick for nothing and by drafting Vesely with the #6. To prove Ernie has learned absolutely NOTHING since the time he sold the round 2 pick that could have been Blair, or since he wasted the #32 pick on Satoransky; now Ernie doesn't even try to get the round 2 pick he should have from the Celtics.

In this draft there is a PG named Nate Wolters who can do something Wall can't (Wolters can shoot). He can be had for a late round 2 pick. So can Michael Snaer.

The Wizards have 2 round two picks this season, but they could always secure the rights to players that might be worth something. That is how you accumulate assets. Ernie don't know nothing bout that!
Klay Thompson is my new favorite NBA player.
"God is good," were his words after his record 37 point quarter.
His defense on James Harden was also impressive.
He also credits his father.#RESPECTFUL

I would be just as pleased if every time the show Leonsis or Ernie's face at least 1000 fans simultaneously loudly boo them. I would boo the hell out of Grunfeld and Leonsis. Their work truly is disgusting.


I think Jim actually DID this a time or two. I recall seeing pictures posted -- and I think he also made it into the Washington Post (a photo of him wearing the bag over his head).


this is true

somewhere in the depths of RealGM/wizards is a thread called Paper Bags Folks (or something like that)

The camels back was broken last summer. This trade was just a reminder of it.
