Ted Leonsis remembers the DC Sniper Attacks Ten Years Ago

Not Wizards related per se, but I was a freshman in college not in the DC area and watching the breaking news on this story as it happened. I was that scared too. Here's Ted's recollection of that time.

My Thoughts on Grunfeld Extension

http://www.beltwaysportsblog.com/2012/05/09/my-thoughts-on-the-grunfeld-resigning/ Above is the link to the website where I posted my thoughts on the Wizards extending Ernie Grunfelds contract,...

We are growing our season ticket holder base quite rapidly. We will soon have the lower bowl sold out. I believe we will have many sell outs in the next season and I am hopeful that our fans will order their tickets now for next season.

From Ted's blog. I agree that there are a lot of new STH's because like a third of the guys I see with their lanyards on are "Rookie STH's." However, selling seats, and actually getting butts in them are two different things and I want to see more of the latter, because this year has been pretty tough, and I like going to games.

We haven’t altered our rebuild plan in the least. We will be one of the youngest teams in the NBA. We have more moves to make certainly but this set of trades positions us well to continue to re-craft our team and refocus our culture to one that is serious and is about winning.

Ted Leonsis, from his blog. And no, he's not altering the plan.

EB from the Junkies' Blog: Ted, Sell the Wizards

Essentially, he questions Ted for not spending because of business reasons, and he implies that Ted may have received too much credit for the Caps.

And then there is this column - which as one comment notes is about 2 years too early; geesh - what buzz kill.

Ted Leonsis' response to Jason Reid's article discussing about the Wizards' challenges in keeping John Wall for the long haul.

I am pleased we have embarked on our rebuild via the draft. We have many more moves to make over the coming years; but we have built our foundation in the right way - I believe. We have two drafts under our belt. We will have one more this next off season. We will then have stock piled young players and prospects. We will be ready for success - as our young players mature. We will manage the salary cap wisely.

From Ted's Take. I think this entry may be in response to some fans who are disappointed that we are not in the race for Dwight (and maybe even Chris Paul).

Wizards Minority Owner Albert Cohen passes away at age of 89

Albert Cohen passed away at 89 last Friday on August 26, and Ted writes his eulogy here on his blog. RIP Big Al.

Ted Leonsis on yesterday's NBA Draft

Ted gives his review of last night on his blog. In short, he's happy we were able to add more young talent to the system, and he gave reasons why we chose not to move up in the draft, nor sell a pick for cash. I feel it's almost as transparent as you can get about the whole deal.
