Forgive me for being in an abstract mood today, but with little going on in the dead part of the NBA schedule, I figure I'd pose this question to everyone as a discussion-starter.
I've been thinking a lot about how fans of any sports team disagree with so many things involving the team. Everyone is a fan of the team, and everyone wants the team to succeed. Beyond that, though? It's hard to find things that pretty much everyone is unanimous about, whether it's something as detailed as a coach's offensive scheme or as supplementary as the concessions at the team's arena. We could get into a long disagreement about pretty much every issue surrounding the team if we wanted to do so.
That said, there have to be some things that we are unanimous about, right? If there weren't, it'd be tough to bring fans together. Sure, we all want the team to succeed, but that doesn't seem like enough to create the kind of community we're trying to create here and elsewhere. There have to be some more specific areas where we can find common ground.
My question to all of you is this: what are those areas? What can we all agree on as Wizards fans?
A couple that immediately come to my mind:
- John Wall should be a very good NBA player.
- LeBron James is a jerk.
- Ted Leonsis is a breath of fresh air.
- We can't imagine a local broadcast without Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier.
