Wizards, Wolf Blitzer give tribute video to Marcin Gortat after his retirement

The CNN journalist and host of “The Situation Room” gave his thank you earlier this week in a taped segment.

Earlier this week, Marcin Gortat retired from the NBA, and I added that he deserved something official from the Wizards organization in the near future.

Looks like the Wizards got the message. The team gave a tribute to him on social media last Wednesday, just a few hours after my post. Gortat also responded!

And if that weren’t enough, Wolf Blitzer of CNN also gave a tribute last Monday. He is a frequent attendee of Wizards games and hosts a preview segment before home games. The cool part is that he created this video segment with an opening that directly mirrors his daily show, “The Situation Room.”

Hopefully we’ll see Gortat return to D.C. where we can see him get a standing ovation in the arena.
