For the next few weeks, we're voting on the top Wizards quote of the year, bracket-style, in a little something we like to call #QUOTESANITY. Today, we move to the Life in the Basement region and start with Maurice Evans venting about his teammates and Jan Vesely learning odd things about Flip Saunders.
1. Sense Of Entitlement
The sense of entitlement that's here sometimes, I've never seen before. We have to start earning things. Earn your way into the rotation. Earn your way onto the floor, and then you earn your minutes by being productive, and when you're not in the rotation, you be supportive and make guys better in practice. -Maurice Evans after a team meeting to address the team's struggles.
8. Likes White Players
I don't know how much he trusts rookies, but I heard that he likes white players, so we'll see. -Jan Vesely when asked by a Czech website what he knew about Wizards coach Flip Saunders. He later clarified that he meant European players, but still, that's a great quote.
So which quote tickles your fancy more? Calling out your teammates or accidentally accusing your coach of being a racist? The choice is yours.
