Letterman does the Wizards
All publicity is good publicity, right? So when David Letterman devotes his Top 10 list to the best of Wizards gun-related explanations, that's a good thing, right? No?
Hey, it's better than a history of the Washington Wizards in the playoffs. Or in the regular season.
Anyhow, thanks again, Gilbert, for bringing the national focus onto D.C. You did it in 2006-2007, when every national publication wrote fawning profiles of your 21st-century personality. And now you've done it again. Heck, in one week you earned responses from Jay Mariotti ("I'd like to think Arenas will teach the children how to shoot, but I'm not sure if he'll bring the basketball or the gun. Who knew this is why they call him Agent Zero?"), Stephen A. Smith ("Arenas is a nice man. He's not a bad guy. We should pray for him and wish him well. But that's after he is suspended for a year without pay and the legal system gets through dealing with him."), Jason Whitlock ("At what point do we admit athletes have no real interest in being our role models and little chance of executing the facade of role modeling in today's media environment?") and now Letterman.
(UPDATE: I'm told the Wizards also made Jay Leno's monologue. Thankfully, the online clip doesn't include that portion. We've all suffered enough.)
