Tales from the Booth: Wizards vs. Bucks 11/1/2014

Over a span of approximately 200 nights between the months of October and April, we spend 41 of them on the cross streets of F and 9th in downtown Washington, DC to bring home to you Wizards fans paramount basketball coverage from a more subjective angle. As bloggers who have been blissfully granted season credentials (thank you Wizards PR), we readily take the liberty of offering our experiences from each and every game we attend and thusly, we are happy to present a new featured post jam-packed with sights and sounds from the Verizon Center by way of our camera lenses and Vine accounts.

Meanwhile, on the Milwaukee side of the floor: a coach and his three Bucks likely watching John Wall film on super-duper slow mo. Or they scored Larry Sanders’ Brazzers password.

Ex-Buck/now-Wizard Drew Gooden catches up with his old pal Zaza Pachulia. Probably discussing whether Zaza should give him the cheese platter he brought from Wisconsin now or after the game.

One-handed Panda!


Marcin Gortat’s mohawk made it half way. Looks like he needs to stop reclining so damn hard in that Beamer.
