When your entire team is outscored by a back-up point guard in the first quarter of a regulation NBA game, you’d think you’d be a little more tactful and respectful.
This was the response of Washington coach Randy Wittman when asked about the play of Avery Bradley in Sunday’s 88-76 Celtics win over the Wizards.
“I could have scored those lay-ups,” Wittman said. “I am being serious. We didn’t have anybody guarding him. When I was a player if you gave me four lay-ups o start the game. I’d have a pretty good groove on to make some jump shots. He ought to send us a postcard of thank-yous or something for allowing him to score. I’m sure he thought it was lay-up lines before the game.”
I remember Randy Wittman as a player. He was no where near athletic enough to make the plays Avery Bradley was making last night.
