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. Our current match-up features JaVale learning about dunk etiquette and Ted Leonsis breaking out his thesaurus.
3. Apparently Not
Apparently, if you get a fast break and throw it off the backboard in the third quarter, and you're 1-11, you're not supposed to do stuff like that. - JaVale McGee after being benched for doing just that.
6. Erudite JaVale
I think JaVale is erudite. He's a very, very interesting next generation player. He's a great person. His challenge is playing within himself. So far it looks like he can do that in practice, now let's translate that into games. But he has x-factor kind of skills too, both defensively and the way he can move on the court. So it's up to us to bring out the best in these players. It's not just up to them. It's up to us to develop them, and counsel them, and coach them, and create an environment where they can excel and meet their aspirations. -Ted Leonsis at media day
