The crowd went wild.
Biden figures to be back at Verizon Center in the coming weeks. In February, he sent a letter to WNBA star Elena Delle Donne congratulating the former MVP and University of Delaware star on her offseason trade to the Mystics.
“I look forward to watching you play here in the District,” Biden wrote, in part. “Washington is a great city, but the best part is that it’s only a short train ride from our home state of Delaware.”
If Biden is as much of a good-luck charm for the Mystics as he apparently was for the Wizards in the first half, Delle Donne’s new team might go undefeated. Following the standing ovation for Biden, the Wizards went on an 11-2 run to take a 38-36 lead.
