Scott Van Pelt zings Colin Cowherd with John Wall tweet

Colin Cowherd has spent the better part of five years – FIVE YEARS! – holding one 30 second dance over John Wall’s head like some kind of modern day scarlet letter.  Amazingly enough, he brought it up again today.  This guy just doesn’t quit.

NBA Film Study: Wizards vs. Raptors

Saturday’s Game 1 between the Washington Wizards and the Toronto Raptors was an old-fashioned, slow-paced, heavy-defensed playoff brawl. The Wizards won by the low, low score of 93–86, and that was after five minutes of overtime.

Washington Wizards head coach Randy Wittman was so excited during a timeout in overtime, he got stomped by which way his clipboard should go.
