Wizards Discuss Matchbox Pizza, Crazy Relatives

Twenty-four teams played NBA games on Wednesday night, when the Wizards made their season debut. Twenty-two of them started at least one player who hadn't been on their season-opening roster two years ago, when this Bog was launched. The two whose starting five were all three-year same-team vets? The Wizards and the Pistons.

In fact, if everyone were healthy, arguably the Wizards' top nine players would all be holdovers from the first NBA training camp I ever attended: Arenas, Butler, Jamison, Haywood, Stevenson, Blatche, Thomas, Daniels, Songaila. (With apologies to Nick Young, but I said arguably.)

Anyhow, bearing in mind that such massive consistency is nearly unheard of in today's NBA, I asked a few of Wiz players how that affects their locker room vibe. And if this video doesn't land DeShawn Stevenson a sponsorship deal with Matchbox, I don't know what will.

(By the way, this was supposed to run Wednesday to preview that night's game, when all was lightness and joy, but in typical Wiz fashion there was some sort of snafu and I'm now running a light and joyful video about an 0-1 team.)

Best part: at 2:04 when Haywood is talking about Caron's favorite beverage, the video cuts to a scene from practice with Caron calmly roughing Nick Young up against the wall with a few fake punches. Guess The City hasn't earned his respect yet!
