Tales From the Booth: Wizards vs Pistons 11/12/2014

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.


The Spectacle

Washington Wizards vs. Detroit Pistons


Let’s start with the good news. The Wizards are 6-2 and off to their best start since Gerald Ford was in office. Reporter asked Wall about it, his answer was perfect.


You can always find Garrett Temple out on the court two hours before the tip with the romantic setting on the light dimmer.


For a while I couldn’t help but stare at Tim Hardaway as he worked with Brandon Jennings on his jumper, which ended up working pretty damn well. If you are in my age bracket or older you’d remember when Hardaway invented the UTEP Two Step as a sophomore in college and kept killing defenders when he got to the league. In last night’s edition of where are they now, here is Timothy Duane Hardaway, Sr.

Pierce’s recent shooting struggles may have Wizards fans concerned but he’s not worried about it and the stroke is still there.


Wizards PR man Daren Jenkins chats with CSN’s Chris Miller as John Wall looks on.

Beal is getting closer and we have proof of it.


Get well soon Bradley

Marcin Gortat is always entertaining guests at home games and on this occasion it was for some young Polish fans. Bradley Beal made it even more special by signing autographs for them.


Crowd size is nothing new to write about as DC sports teams are notorious for late arrivals and empty seats. One constant is ‘Raise the Roof Man’ who I believe may have season tickets to every area team.


Had a little bit of fun with the slow-mo camera on my Apple iPhone 5s, apologies for my equipment inferiority.


I debated posting this because I wasn’t trying to put Glen Rice Jr. out there like that but Pierce’s reaction was priceless and I felt it had to be shared.


My favorite shoe of the game goes to John Wall. These things have come a long way from his entry with Reebok.

I get it with this next one, you have to cater to a younger crowd too, I just feel like they could have made it look more like John.


If you asked me two jerseys I didn’t think I’d see last night, my answer would not have been these two..


Coming out of timeouts was not a strong suit of the Wizards last year and hasn’t been in some time. With under a minute to go and the game on the line Washington delivered and it was great to watch live.


Game, blouses.

we are Hoop District
