'On the Road with Buck & Phil'
Well played, Sashi Brown, well played.
The Mystics making the finals is a bit bittersweet for some people, since resellers have already swooped up tickets for the games at ESA and are selling them for close to 200 dollars! A few of my friends are longtime fans but won’t be able to go as they just... can’t afford it. It saddens me, because we've all suffered through the days of injuries, bad coaching, etc and this year, the Mystics are making it all worth it, and Mystics fans deserve to see their team (possibly) finally win their first title. This could be solved if they played their games at Capital One Arena, which is available for at least games 1 and 2. The link to a petition is here if you'd like to help out the #DCFamily. Thank you!

Wanna hate-read an article about your team? This is the article for you!
Just posting this to dispel the narrative that John doesn't participate in free agent recruitment. In this article John says he made pitches to not only Dwight Howard but Jeff Green as well.
Quick song I wrote about the Wizards Raptors series. Wasn’t feeling like sharing this when we were down 0-2, but now feels like the proper time:
First of all, if you haven't read this yet...DAMN. But also, how can you read about the incompetently assembled Wizards of a decade ago and NOT realize the one constant is that Ernie Grunfeld is totally incapable of putting a functional roster together? Maybe consider that before you roast ANOTHER Wizards coach who's AGAIN trying to compensate for a glaringly more unbalanced/dysfunctional/less talented roster than the opponent. Brooks (like all the others before him) is working for a serial coach career killer.
I guess we know why Lawson was signed now...
