John Thompson III won’t be at Wizards-Pacers game 6, brother says


We know that John Thompson III went to Game 2 of the Wizards-Pacers series, and that the Wizards lost.

We know that John Thompson III went to Game 3 of the Wizards-Pacers series, and that the Wizards lost again.

I’m not sure about Games 4 or 5, but apparently the Georgetown coach and Hibbert Whisperer will not be in the building for Game 6.

“It’d be easier to slow Roy Hibbert down if your brother wasn’t busy coaching him up all the time,” 106.7 The Fan’s Grant Paulsen pointed out in a conversation with Comcast SportsNet’s Ron Thompson on Thursday.

“He’s not coming tonight,” Ron Thompson responded. “I’ve already told him. He cannot come to the game. I told him. He will not be in the building tonight, I can guarantee that.”

Ron Thompson for series MVP?

(Update: I’m told JTIII was not, in fact, at Game 4. Which the Wizards lost. So I dunno.)
