I got a fair amount of feedback on our recent “Where’s the Wizards buzz?” roundtable, from both sides of the debate. And while I still think the sentiments were accurate when we published them, I will say that Sunday night elicited what felt like the most online buzz the Wizards have generated all season.
Which is probably not surprising, given the stakes. But still.
Here’s some of what people were saying, divided by category.
