Wizards big men taking charges

Washington basketball fans have complained for years about the team’s toughness, and defense, and grit, and willingness to pay the price, and all those other things.

I don't know if any of those things will be better this year, but the big men are clearly getting serious about flying backwards five feet in an exaggerated effort to draw charges, especially if there is a huge fluffy pad for them to land on.

Position a bed of cactuses underneath the rim, and I’d really be impressed.
