"You mean like our long national nightmare is finally over? No. I enjoyed coaching these guys. I have not coached in quite a while. This was a thrill. To have two captains like I had and to see some of the progress with some of the young guys, that was a thrill for me. I'm very much appreciative to those guys for hanging in there and continue to competing until the very end. I would coach tomorrow if I could."
— Ed Tapscott on his time as coach of the Wizards. There probably aren't a lot of Wizards fans out there that will be mourning the end of the Ed Tapscott coaching era, but you couldn't have asked for a classier guy to guide what was left of the ship home this season. His time as coach of the Wizards might not have been the most memorable in franchise history, but it's hard to imagine anyone faring well under the circumstances he had to deal with this season. Thank you for your service, Ed. I hope that you always find yourself in the Palace of Good Play.
