Marcin Gortat’s amusing reaction to Kris Humphries joining the Wizards

(By Katherine Frey/The Washington Post)

Many Americans tap dance around matters of race. Marcin Gortat also does this, except with exploding pudding-filled whoopee cushions attached to his tap shoes.

You’ll recall that Gortat made an observation when the Wizards traded away Jan Vesely last winter.

And that the Junkies later asked him about this observation. “I knew you were gonna ask about that,” he told them. “Yeah, I realized I’m the only one left, white boy here. It kind of feels weird.” Well, the demographics of the locker room changed again this week when the Wizards acquired Kris Humphries. And Gortat reacted in kind.

It’s worth mentioning, perhaps, that Gortat seems to have become the official online welcoming committee for the Wizards this month.
