Several Washington Wizards participate in Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS awareness

New, comments

John Wall, Bradley Beal and Garrett Temple all get buckets of ice water poured on them to raise awareness for ALS. Is Randy Wittman next? (SPOILER: Maybe!)

If you've been on the internet at all this week, you've probably seen various people dumping buckets of ice water on their heads to raise awareness for ALS (you can read more about the phenomenon here). As the Ice Bucket Challenge has spread, it was only a matter of time before Wizards got in on the action.

First, the Wizards' mascot, G-Wiz, along with Jumoke Davis and Dan Nolan of Monumental Network got in on the action.


Then, Bradley Beal was challenged by Duke guard Quinn Cook:


In response, Beal challenged John Wall, Garrett Temple and Randy Wittman to take the challenge. It didn't take long for John Wall and Garrett Temple to respond to the challenge:



As of the writing of this post, Randy Wittman hasn't responded to the challenge yet. But keep in mind he also hasn't paid up on his promise to dunk if the Wizards beat the Bulls, so we'll see if he pays up this time.

UPDATE at 2:20 a.m. - Wittman has accepted the challenge

Here is Randy Wittman's video accepting the challenge. He challenged Ernie Grunfeld, Jerry Wolters, and Eugene Park, all members of the basketball operations staff.
