I do not know how to contact Ted Leonsis, so I'll make my plea here and hope someone will deliver him the message.
I've been a fan since 2001, and honestly, Wittman is the first coach since then that I really liked. I've seen all the Wizards teams the last decade - all the great scoring, the playoff games, the gun incidents and the losing. In all those teams, even the Arenas team that were winning, something was amiss. Players weren't serious, weren't professional, didn't give a crap and above all refused to play defense and to play with heart.
With Randy Wittman, I can see or rather feel, that the team is really trying. The players really play hard and we all can see the effort. Yes, the record sucks. Yes, We can't make an open jump shot if our lives depended on it. But it is all due to the lack of talent and the poor roster construction. As cuppettcj thoroughly explained, the team is well COACHED, it's just that the players keep missing the open shots they create. The defense is very good (although not very pretty) - The first time a DC team is playing good and tough defense.
Before I lose my point, I want to sum up. In my opinion, Randy Wittman is a good coach, and seems to be a very good person. He is an honest coach, one who does not try to sugar coat problems. I think the players play hard for him, they are serious and committed - but unfortunately not very talented. For god's sake, we actually play defense for a change.
So please Ted, Keep the only Wizards coach I liked in the entire time I have been a fan. Will somebody deliver him the message?
