Olaf Kolzig's Locker
Olaf Kolzig's locker was the only one in the dressing room missing a nameplate last night. His locker also was pretty dang empty by the time the media were allowed into the room. Kolzig declined to speak to reporters.
Does this mean anything in particular? Let me refer to a Washington Post story from almost a year ago:
Haywood has been frustrated by his inconsistent playing time since Jordan replaced him as a starter on April 1. He left the bench area before the buzzer sounded and was the first Wizard out of the locker room. Oddly, the nameplate above Haywood's locker stall already was missing when reporters filed in for postgame comments.
Brendan Haywood, you'll note, has started 82 of the Washington Wizards's 84 games this season, despite that missing nameplate following the team's playoff elimination last spring.
Still, the image sticks in the mind a bit, no?
