Among the biggest questions for the Wizards this offseason: whether Marcin Gortat will be back.
Gortat, of course, has flirted with this question for months, never saying he definitely wants to remain in Washington, but never suggesting he’s likely to leave.
One holdup? Uh, the conditions of Washington’s roads.
Remember, this is what Gortat told Sports Illustrated during the playoffs.
“I still hate the roads here in Washington,” Gortat told S.L. Price. “It’s the capital and, I mean, every street’s got literally holes that you can crack your whole freakin’ car. It’s just ridiculous. Somebody’s got to do something about it. But at the end of the day, I really like this city. I’m not saying I’m loving. I like it.”
And he also had some sort of issue during the season.
Then, with fans lobbying Gortat to return to Washington this week, the big man sent out this tweet.

SOMEONE FIX THE ROADS!
Also, doesn’t Gortat know about Potholepalooza? Everything should be straight now.
Still, if I’m being honest, Gortat has dropped a great number of clues that suggest he will indeed be back in Washington.
